    Glad I saw that. I wondered if it was okay to bring something forward.

    Also, just saw a post about your wife feeling much better (shopping). Glad to hear it. Back pain is something I fear, after an experience years ago.

    I'd much rather someone reply to an old thread than start a new one on the same topic, as long as they actually had something to add to it, of course. In fact, when I notice a new thread on a topic that has already been discussed, I often merge the two.

    Thank you. She's feeling much better now. The back pain is gone, except for that caused by the surgical wound itself.

    I participate in online forums because they're there.

    Thinking about why I'll start a thread that I know not many will read.

    Things like sports and movies are my passion, but they don't interest everyone.

    No problem. I mostly start one just to finish thoughts and ideas that I have.

    Example:

    I'm watching an old movie and an actor or actress will appear and this will
    start the wheels turning...'Where have I seen them before', 'What's their name', etc.

    So I open a 'note' with my guesses, a list as it were, of movies, names, etc.
    This leads to other movies, actors, more movies, and it goes on and on.

    When I get to a point that makes 'some' sense to me, I'll copy, give it a title
    and post it.

    So what I post is mostly to complete a circle that has to be finished.

    I like online forums because I can interact with people while sitting in my PJs with my hair all stringy and no one is the wiser. :p

    Why did you join this senior’s forum
    I joined to share about female fitness
    And establish a women’s fitness quorum
    My photos and humor as you bore witness
    Went down in flames as improper decorum


    So after testing the waters and finding warm luke
    I decided my post my stories were best told in prose
    As very few gave two fat rat’s tails or a buzzard’s puke
    About my stories or music that caused most to doze
    I bow to the thread about Phechet, the man the Duke

    I tried to CLICK on it. :cool: I'm such a brilliant blonde.

    Wait....I have to get this on topic or it will be moved to 'the other thread'.
    I joined this forum out of curiosity, I stayed because of Prose. :p

    I have been known to show a quarter of an inch of brunette smarts until I reorder my product from Amazon.
