It must be because it's a Treeduck thread.

And you didn't have to spend a few decades playing drums and writing books :)

You might have caught on to a secret? Be open, honest, have a long history of sharing and respecting personal experiences with fellow forum members...be admired by peers.

Reading so much back story, I dearly wish I had joined many years ago. But even my short introduction to these great TRF, you stood out to me as well respected and helpful :)

...

And Treeduck...

I met him? This one time?

I thought I could engage him with my life stories. First he drew on the bottom of a milkshake so thoroughly I could hardly hear my own voice.

Then, I began with my opinions about everything to do with life. I actually saw him pull out a Neil book and start reading. I was that inspiring!
Ok, I embellished a little. The bit about Lorraine, I don't really know her that well :chickendance:

That was very kind of you to say.  Thank you.

I wish I had joined TRF sooner myself.  I missed the Golden Years of the forum.  By the time I got here, they were already gone, but we still had many, oh so many, good times. I used to spend all day here and laugh and laugh and laugh.  We used to really have a good time.  But people leave and others move on.  I'm just grateful that the place is still up and running and that we still have a core group here of really wonderful human beings.

There's only one TRF.

No need to respond, but I know the feeling of "forums of yesteryear".  A gaming site I participated in for over ten years was an evening activity. Doesn't matter how much, but how often? Yes, it was a tonne of fun!

I am not so much interested in the starts about "which song did you...", "what time were you...". I gravitate to the personal stories of fans. We have all invested so much time in these three super guys.

These forums are a great place, just to just be.

I don't have the guts, yet, to share anything personal about myself - but nothing has shocked me yet, in everything I have read so far.

Oh, yeah...So...Met Lorraine...sound familiar?

I just finished reading an amazing book, will post on a Neil forum if I find the right one.

Elspeth Beard is my new hero (sorry Lorraine :) )

Since this topic feels a bit arbitrary as it is...I am adding new subjects!

After reading about Neil's motorbike travels over the years, I started reading other people's similar travels.

Ted Simon, then her. Look her up, very good reading to distract one from these "Uncertain Times".
