Thread Name: BS: Veterans Would Mudcat hook you in today?
Subject: RE: BS: Veterans Would Mudcat hook you in today?
For the past 3 or 4 years, Rick F. has mentioned the virtues and the sense of community that is available on Mudcat. He also encouraged me to join and become a participant in the disscussions and shared info related to our craft, or whatever might be of interest.
Its been less than a year since I joined and for the most part its still a lot of fun to check in and see whats happening.Of course there,s a lot of stuff that is of no interest to me (politics and BS, for the most part) but the nice thing about this forum is...
Take what you want, and leave the rest!
I have met a lot of facinating and informative folks of every stripe and have learned a hell of a lot good stuff.
Most importantly I disscovered in Mudcat, an honest sense of family and compassion.
Like when Little John Cameron was sick, and sadly passed on, the outpouring of support, then genuine grief, was very evident in the posts that followed.
Or when Rick had his operation and was on the mend, the sheer number of "get wells" , was most touching, and I know, certainly gave him a big lift.
These are some of the reasons I continue to tune in and I am gratfull to Max,Dick,Joe and all of the other faceless people who obviously work hard to keep this thing happening.
Thankyou and all the best,
Glen
