Has it been that long since 1998?  Yike!  Welcome back, anyway!  Glad things are settling down for you now.  That moving business can be a pain, but living in new places can provide some good jogs to the imagination.

Welcome, Persidio.  Dang!  I always thought that place was called Presidio.  Never mind.  It's been a while since I visited SF.

Welcome back. Persidio!

I think I may have been around in 1998, and I wish I remembered your other name/nick.

Anyway, enjoy it here, we all love it!

Where was I in 1998 ??? Hmm not here, nope. Didn't even know I was able to write then, didn't know cool places like this existed and was... lets say, a little clueless.

I'm one of the "new ones" as far as 98 goes. If you think my English is weird, you are totally right, I'm the Frenchie here. Joined this board because I felt lonely writing alone in my corner. I found a new family here and went into a terrible depression when the old board was about to close. Then Bob saved us all...

So welcome back Presidio!

Hi ya all

dhparker! Is that you? Cozies right? That's when we used to share our stories. Trying to remember the story you were working on back then.

Hey Ingrid

Thanks so much Penny- you know it may have been HoustnGrl - because at the time I was 34/35 ish... but a girl at heart. Not sure how I would have spelled it though. That's got to be the old nick.

Hi ya Zara- Oh you would have had a blast in 98'. Still rockin' I see.

I had some graphics to make for a friend. The graphics hobby and the writing hobby compete with each other for my time. Was up till 1 AM last night finishing up with the images they needed - so here I am.

Ready to read. Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. It's sooo good to home.

At last!!!
Hi,
I'm Peg H.  Dave the pharmacist, my dear friend, worked hard to help me get here.  It's typical of my luck, that, try as I might, once I registered--I couldn't enter. LOL   Bob, I must say, you came through with flying colors.  Thank You! 
I was a member a very long time ago--the date?  I have no idea, it's been THAT long.  I'm not even certain which SN I was known by back then.
Anyway, I am the wife of a retired police officer, he retired on disability when he went from relapsing remitting MS to secondary progressive. He was the police firearms instructor for the dept. and is a great resource for me when I need firearms information.
I am over 50--ack! Already?  Over the years, I've written two mysteries (of a series) that, unfortunately, didn't sell.  I got the most wonderful rejections letters!  I am currently working on book one of a brand new series.  My agent is very understanding and patient.

Yep.  It's me...er...I.  Zara's language is easier for that.  "C'est moi."  Cozies, yes.  I don't remember what I was working on then, either.  Probably hasn't been published.  Two pretty traditonal cozies have been.  The lastest one (released in October) is kind of a cozy with a fairy tale twist.  I won't bore you with details, if you're interested, you can look at my website. http://donnaparker.w4aw.org

I'm so embarrassed.  I wish I could remember exactly who you were in 1998.  I don't remember HoustnGrl.  I remember a couple of "pregnant ladies".  Maybe I can use age as an excuse. sigh.

Your time travel historical sounds interesting!  We'll watch for questions in the "Historical Mystery Writing" section.   ;D

I'm an old member from way back who managed to find this place again. My old computer died last year. By the time I got another one and started rebuilding my bookmarks, MWF had moved. I can't tell you how many times I went to the old entrance page, clicked on the logo and got nowhere.

Anyway, I see a few names I recognize and some new ones. Hopefully, this beast will keep running for a while and I can start contributing again.
