PostSubject: To my entire CHM family   Thu Dec 06, 2018 2:28 pm

I just wanted to take a second and acknowledge how much all of you ROCK!  

Back in the day, I spent a lot of time here, hangin', chattin', making up games, praying, posting little studies, doing silly photoshops of people here, and so on. But in recent years my presence has been rather scarce as I've been struggling with my faith, my walk, my health problems and family issues... And yet, I'm always welcomed back to CHM warmly, sometimes even missed  Laughing . 
I'm always offered prayer and genuine concern from all of you who, I must admit, to my shame, I do not reciprocate even half as much  Crying or Very sad

I appreciate the friendship from everyone, those of you I've known nearly 15 years as well as you more recent members  Cool

Thanks for all of your prayers and compassion over the years - During that rough transition when my health and problems went from average to complex, from surgeries to work or family issues, from times of strong faith to crisis of faith... my family here at CHM has been just that, FAMILY  
OK, enough sappiness and "Precious Moments-y" quoteslol! Razz  I just wanted to acknowledge ya'all and thank our Father in heaven for this crazy family. You all ROCK !!

Aw shucks.  If you where here I would give you a punch in the shoulder for that.
Love you too brother.

I'm going to take credit for you coming here (even if it wasn't me).  I remember us doing an early CD trade back around 2006/2007 (or so).  Not at all sure how we met (might have been the CMR), but I do remember encouraging you to come here to CHM.

I can't remember who invited me over here, it was probably you since we did a lot of CD trading and stuff back then. I spent much of my time over at Firestream in the early/mid 2000s, not so much at CMR though (couldn't stand all the bickering and arguments at the time). 

That was back when Harold the Opossum ruled this place:

I was trying to remember the possum's name just yesterday!  I could remember the little guy but couldn't remember the name!  Harold was a good running gag back then.  I wonder if he stayed with Motley Crue until they retired?  I lost track of him after he went on tour.  I miss the little rodent.  LOL

Dude, you are not SOMETIMES missed on here.  You are ALWAYS missed on here.  I always felt like this board was only as active as it was because of you.  Vonnie and I started a lot of threads over the years, but you always seemed to get people to talking even if everyone wasn't always in agreement.

Well thank you for that Alldat, you're too kind. We had a lot of fun man. I just feel like if I could get some normalcy back in my life, I'd be excited about things and projects again.

Yep!  That's where it all started!

Of course, Sabidoo hasn't checked in here in years.  He no longer owns that house.  His third wife was a total gold-digger and he ended up losing everything he had because of her:  his personal vehicle, his semi he owned at that time, and his house.

Nowadays, he is remarried to a 4th wife and they rent a house about an hour from here.  He owns his own truck again.  He seems to be happier than I have seen him in years.  Besides playing drums for me occasionally, he has gotten back into church and plays for the church band.  He has a stepdaughter who has been very active in band during her high school years.  She will graduate this May

We haven't heard from Harold the possum in many, many years, though.  lol!

I miss having Sabidoo around here. We still jab at each other on Facebook, though.

On the other hand, Harold I don't remember well. I think I showed up in 2011, so I can't speak to any personal encounters with him. It's probably not surprising, because Canada is too cold for him.

And to G/F: it's always good to see you around. I think you were the one who shipped me a few tapes some time ago. I don't have a tape deck, but I still have the tapes. I played the Mastedon one on repeat. Top notch songwriting. Anyway. Your honesty is truly refreshing. It's easy to put up a facade. Heck, I do that myself fairly often when I'm around people I don't really know well or don't have time to express it. I'm thankful you trust us with the crud that goes down in your life. Take care Smile

With my senile memory, I can't say I remember that  Embarassed - but, I do remember being on a give-away spree a few years ago when I had a bunch of duplicate albums, so that could have been at that time.
Glad you're enjoying them!

That is the best compliment I've ever gotten -for something I have actually gotten flack for in the past  Laughing I put up a facade for nearly 2 decades with fellow employees and at church- pretending to be happy, pretending that as a Christian I wasn't depressed and angry at life due to my health problems. 
Here at CHM is where I actually began to open up with my true emotions, concerns and frustrations. Having a group of misfits, like I do here, to be honest with has been therapeutic to my walk with Christ and it's allowed for true growth in me. I tend to think this is what Paul meant in so many passages about entrusting things with each other in fellowship and Christian friendship. I know Paul was never fake and always spoke of his failings and massive shortcomings as a child of the Father. 
I tend to think the modern church has forgotten that it's ok to be Guilty and Forgiven at the same time.

That's what I love about this place:  we can all admit that we are misfits and this is kind of our Island of Misfit Toys.  Of course, if Hermie shows up, he ain't sticking anything in my mouth!  LOL

I also love that this is a refuge for many of us where we can open up about our feelings, our pains, and our frustrations without being judged.  We all don't always agree, but we do care about each other.  I hate it that we have lost a couple of folks over the years and that I was partially (and sometimes completely) to blame for that.  If I could take it all back and fix those things, I would.

Ohh out Harold, that was the most funny threat on CHM.
I've laughed so hard to read the stories over Harold and his family.

I hope Harold is on the road, but he loves to tease sabidoo too.
I'm not surprised when he appears so now and then around sabidoo's house.
But he knows sabidoo har a "5.
He is scared to death for that.
