Subject: RE: BS: Veterans Would Mudcat hook you in today?
I can relate to a lot of what Jeri said in her 1st post. There was a group of us who were getting past an interest in just the music & wanting to know the people behind the music. Then, catspaw had his medical emergency & we found ourselves checking in each day, several times a day, holding our collective breath, waiting to see if he was alive or dead. We cried; we sent prayers & music & cards & money; we sent ourselves. Yup, spaw & others became real people to us who we cared about. We did have some wonderful in-person gatherings & developed friendships that I expect to last a lifetime. I haven't made any friends on Mudcat recently. I wonder--new folks--are you having experiences like we did & making solid friendships on the current Mudcat? I won't leave, because of what I've found here, but I doubt that I'd find enough as a newcomer to cause me to stay.

best,
