Anyone know where Rob, Tangentalstorm has been? Wondering if he was deployed or what. Here's wishing all is well with him and his family!

I would like to inquire if anyone has heard from 2 members

The first is AllisCa who was quite active on the forum until October 2016.  Then he just dropped off the radar.  He was a very successful gardener and was dba Poorboyz Produce.  We could still use his vast knowledge and experiences on the forum.

The other one is Mudfish2.  If I recall correctly he lived in Birmingham Al.  Recall him having a 300' cliff in his back yard.   He was a frequent poster on the forum and was usually one of the first to post in the early morning while drinking his morning coffee and reading the morning paper.   Just prior to disappearing on the forum he cut down several large sweet gum trees and planted a lot of blue berry bushes.

Just prior to that he started a topic "  How to keep cats from pooping in his garden"?   I must say that topic grew to about 4 pages with members posting funny and unrealistic methods to keep cats from pooping  his garden.  I hope this was not the reason for his leaving the forum.  If so I apologize         for my post on the subject.

If you have any information on these prior active members please post or PM me.

Thank,

Ben

Hi Rick,

Thanks for the info.  I was just wondering.  The bug running across the screen would be hippie willie.

He logs onto the forum sometimes, but has not posted this year.  It won't be long and I would predict he will post some pictures of his usual great harvest.  He grows some beautiful vegetables.

Hi Bill,  How you are?

I too enjoyed Reartinetiller's post.  He is still active on the forum but just does not post that often.  His last post was in February 2017   His last activity was May 29, 2017.  He evidently is still reading the forum but seldom post.

Come on Reartinetiller we would love to see you posting again, sharing your garden and lifetime experiences.  We miss Mum also.  She always helped you in the garden and seems like y'all always worked together at what ever you were doing.

Bill Take good care of your mother's garden, that garden keeps her going.

AllisCa wasn’t kicked off the forum.  He just stopped posting for some reason.

What ever happened to Kirk?  He was the one who was always talking about his crazy neighbor. Haven't heard anything from him.

pknowles Kirk did himself in a year or so ago.   Alot of people liked Kirk an some (reartinetiller) back off of the forum due to Kirk's death.  I still think of him from time to time.

OMG! I didn't know that. Probably during the time I was off of here when we all had to re-register. I'm sorry I brought that up.

Nothing much going on in the garden right now so I spend a good deal of time poking around old threads and it's come to my attention that we've not heard anything from Okie Bob since May 25th, anybody had contact with him?

Okie Bob is another very sad story.  Bobs wife took her own life an Bobs life will never be the same.   Last I heard was that he is selling out an moving on to a new beginning an since there is only him he has no need to garden.  Many on here considered Bob to be the gold standard of forum friend, but unspeakable events change our lives instantly.

OkieBob update!

I am friends with OkieBob on face book an this morning I see a FB photo of OB with his new bride! I also ask  Bob a couple weeks ago if he might attend the gtg an he said no.  From the caption on the wedding photo his wife was a widow so they have started a new chapter in life.

That's great news Gopher, I hope OB finds peace wherever he is. From reading some of his posts he seems to be very wise in all things gardening.

Woodchip gardener--  Has anyone heard from woodchip gardener.  I have missed her posting.  I checked and the last time she posted was April 20th.  This is very unusual.  She usually makes from 1-3 post nearly every day. 

I think what maybe happening is her older daughter was coming home from college and they may be traveling having some prime mother-daughter time together.  Maybe they all decided to go on vacation.  I hope this is the reason.

If you have heard from her please advise.

I would guess you are right Mr. Ben. I hope everything is alright with Woodchip.

I often also wonder about Digger (Bill) from Florida. He was gardening in woodchips down in Florida and I think he was also raising some of his grandkids. I hope both of these missing members will post soon.

Does anyone know anything about Myers in South Carolina? He was quite a gardener and also very creative in making or adapting things to make gardening easier. I fortunately copied his posting on cutting the pvs pipe on the diagonal and using it as a stand and plant. It was ingenious. I have thought about re posting it to share on the new site. I always enjoyed allisca's posts and he gave me advice on several occasions that was spot on helpful.
