Friday night we danced at El Flamboyant as usual...then we went to Chris' Hideaway followed by early morning food at Rebound. Got off from work early Sat night so we met up with friends at the Parrot's Cove...Had a really good time there. Walked around town for a bit then home. Found a picture of the back of my head on the cover of the Island Trader! 😀 And we can play WHERE'S WALDO....I mean WHERE'S Melissa on page 18! Another day at work today...Good day all...Melissa
Last night at Chicken Charlies I had to go to the bathroom and it was occupied. I was patiently waiting doing the pee pee dance when the door opens and a man walked out. I thought I would razz him a little and I ask him what he was thinking using the womans restroom. He looked at me for a minute, I guess trying to see if I was serious and then he said very humbly, "I put the seat down"
Good come back
So, I'm sitting here in Miami waiting for my flight back home to STX. Maine was great, old friends, family, my son's wedding. The ceremony went well for the first time I ever officated. Got a lot of compliments so maybeI'll look into doing it on STX.
I've been cold for the last 10 days and I hope my cistern has some water in it. After I get home and open the shutters and put the house back on line I'll read all these pages you guys wrote during the past 10 days
So it will be great to back with people who can look you in the eye, smile and give a greeting. New Englanders are so reservered.
Welcome back, Bombi!
LOL at Tammy's bathroom experience.
Alexandra - I'm sooo sorry about your injury. Geez that's terrible. From now on wear protective googles.
A JJ funny.
Yesterday evening JJ asked if his sister forgot her purse when she went to work. I said I didn't know. He said I mean I hope she didn't forget her purse because that would make her upset but I really want some bubble gum and she has some in there. He then said I think I will go and search her room. I let him.
OK, TRW....You have been away tooooo long now. We worry when you are not on the board at least every other day. So what's up?
Charlotte, Trw is fine. We saw him the other night. He is living in town now and hasn't gotten his computer from his house yet and he is working a lot. I imagine we will all be bombarded with stories when he gets his computer. LOL.
Yeah TRW we miss you & your colorful strange but true stories.
Hope all is well and you'll join us soon with many a tale 😀
you are definitely missed trw!
come back soon!
as soon as i get here he (TRW) disappears...
so it go...
hope he will be back soon.
this sis feels like i know him just from his stories.
Trust me he has a list of stuff to write...he's been keeping daily notes on napkins...He hasn't forgotten the board!
Now you suppose the same TRW that was offering some one to compile his writings for $100 will ever get around to his nappies..............lets hope!!!!!
Well in his profession it's the quickest thing to grab when a thought crosses his mind 😀
Thanks for the reply Tammy. Just a little concerned. i have known Tim for about 6 years, not a friend of his or anything like that, just casually seeing him at work and out at Cane Bay and hate that they are not a partnership any longer. Although I have never met Troy, I think he is wonderfully funny and a sincere man. Everything works out for the best....it's just a matter of time.
For all concerned we saw TRW again today...he is still doing great...he hopes to get to a computer today to do some posting.
Sending TRW some good vibes :@)
hey all,don't know where to begin or what to say,i feel dead inside and i'm just going through the motions right now, nodding and smiling in all the right places but when i look at my eyes in the mirror there's nothing there,this split has been happening for the last 4 years and i guess it's finally done,i'm tired. i've tried it my way(sober),i've tried it his way(drunk) and well that way does'nt work for me anymore because i like living sober.
Just one day at a time. Keep nodding and smiling and going through the motions and eventually you will start feeling real. Start writing again. Welcome back.
trw, problems of the heart are the hardest to deal with and it seems only time helps healing. It's a time to think only of your self and things that will make you feel better. positive vibes
Welcome back TRW, even if its a shell of your former self. I don't personally know you or your ex I just know love is one of the most powerful emotions we have. It picks you up when you are down, brings light to dark and makes all things seem possible. The flip side of course is the drain and loss sensation that zaps the very soul from you. In time you will start seeing light where there is dark now and the impossible will become possible. Remember there are people out there who do care about you with strong shoulders to lean on & help you through this sad time. Keep smiling if only on the outside. You have alot of love inside you still and soon it will resurface & when it does...............look out world!!! You my dear are a force to be reckoned with!!!
Time is a great healer, TRW. You are loved by the board and you have work to keep you busy. Keep your chin up, and best wishes.
good afternoon TRW !
although i have only been lurking in the background, reading the posts on this board for a few months, i feel as if i know you.
love sometimes sucks.
long relationships are the pits to get over.
but you will.
one morning you will wake up and tears will be in your eyes.
some mornings later, you will wake up and just be sad.
then after some more time passes,
you will wake up one morning and still think about your love, but not in such a sad way, and you will be able to get through your day much easier.
then, PRAISE JAH.....
one day you will wake up and realize that you have not even thought about your love in several weeks, and the SUN will follow you and you will smile again.
just from reading your posts, i see that you are a good man.
you buy dogs food
you rescue dogs
you help LOCAL neighborhood youth by employing them to do your yard work.
you bring supplies to the man on the corner that does not have a home.
JAH ! you even went to the defense of a fellow Ras, when you do not even agree with his mission.
you have been through much in your life, as have others, but the difference between you and most others, is that you have learned from your past and have come out on top.
as this sis has, you have conquered an addiction....PRAISE H.I.M. in all things for that idren, seen?
you must look at all the good in YOU and take comfort in the fact that your heart is clean, seen?
if a one has done everything in their power to make something work and it still does not, then it is time to move on.
there are better things in store for you.
do not let this run you off the island.
you love the island.
just carve out a niche for yourself and live your life.
you will be okay.
take comfort in your work and in your friends and BE YOU!
write that book.....
organize and centralize and write your book.
May HIM guide the I's coming in and going out
blessings, joy and guidance.
ps.....i SURELY hope you are not going to sit by and let him have the whole house, as from my overstanding from your posts, you both contributed equally in the vibe. GET WHAT IS DUE YOU!!!
i am sure you are deserving of that.
hey all and thanks,heres a story for ya,i've seen the "money grubber"twice out slumming in the past 2 weeks and at first because i had no glasses(smashed against my face with a heineken bottle) i thought it was a drag queen and a really bad one at that, it really has bad taste and you'd think with all the money it makes it would shop somewhere nice, so anyway it was wearing these clunky gold heels, you know the ones you wear when your weight is up and you need to stay off the stilettos and this truly awful gold dress thing with these asian snake things all over it and it was way too tight and well anyway from the back it truly was like watching 2 midgets trying to fight their way out of a gunny sack.
