18 Hours, 13 Seconds Ago

...I hit the 2 Year "watermark" of membership here.

I've certainly read some informative articles, and experienced the humility of being "conned" by some here.
Seen some come and go...some quietly into the night..and others with much fanfare and spectacular posting.

As of late, I've noticed many new "user-names", and I remember how back some time ago the "protocol" of that occurrence went; they would introduce themselves...get advice from "seasoned" DPers.

THEY WELCOMED the NEWCOMERS to this "MOVEMENT".

How many of those "seasoned DPers" are still with us today?
I'd love to hear from you all....the seasoned.... and the newcomers.

I'd also like to convey this:
THANK YOU Mike Nystrom.
It's good to see you participating here. Even though it hasn't been easy for you lately. I am in a similar situation, and almost missed my "anniversary", due to the circumstances.
And THANK YOU to ALL you DPers out there...it's been a trip.

Ohhh you'll LOVE this one!!!

5 years, 2 month, 7 days

I've cried, I've laughed, been depressed, been lifted up and learned a lot all from the comments here. Thanks everyone!

Had extremely high hopes for 2008; door to door, state wide organization, RP dropping in twice, taking the train (13 hrs.) to the Rally in MN., so exciting. Joined RNC, elected Treasurer, fought the fight against the controlling RINO a$$e$. Back to independent for me.

I still have a ton of hopes and dreams for our country. Hope is what it is all about.... I'm in my late 60s & single. During perfect med check up (ins kept calling for me to do this) last month the nurse says to me, "You're not still sexually active are you?" hmmm... I said, "I know it's been a long time but I still have hope." Don't ever give up hoping and dreaming.

What they all seem to not realize is that trying to control those of us with hopes and dreams of our free constitutional US of A is like trying to herd cats.

Hahahah! NICE!

I really got a kick outta your commentary..
Looks like you've been "in the trenches", fighting the good fight, and so I will THANK YOU, for that...and for keeping your sense of humor along the way.
P.S
I just recently celebrated(?) a birthday...early 60's
I also live alone, and find that many do not understand the difference between being "alone" and being "lonely".
One of the rewards of "maturity"?
Check this out...thanks for the "lift".

Today is my 6 year anniversary here

I just did a post on that, and Granger, bless her heart, was the first to congratulate me. There has been more division here than in the beginning, but i would guess its like they would say back in the day, "If your not over the target, you wouldn't be getting flack"

Yes! I Saw That...

...and there are many "good hearts" still here...more to come I pray.
Congratulations again....glad to be along for this ride.
