Watch out!!! I got kicked out of chat over and over and over again on Sunday because "some people" expected that I would be there and I was a bit busy.
Between your mother in law, father, your health, and accidents (angry woodchuck knocks a cord of wood on you), you must pop into chat to say you're too busy to chat so we don't worry!

My biggest danger is Duke. He will run at me full-tilt and collide at full speed. He thinks it's fun.

My health issues are chronic and long-term, and will not resolve. If my father succumbs (fast, I hope) I will be glad for him to have avoided suffering. I have lots of cash and bonds to hand out to siblings (he was an inveterate saver) and cash to pay for his "final" expenses.

Nope. Dad's in good health, though he has arthritic knees (like me) and doesn't get out to walk like he used to. I call him every couple of days to check in. He lives over 15 miles away, so we don't drive back and forth and check in, just to say "Hi".

If I call and tell him that we have some left-over soup or casserole that he could take home, he'll be here in 20 minutes or less. Widower-cooking can't compare. He's 86 years old now, but still could put in a better day's work than a lot of people half his age.

I you Char!!

I've met many people in person that I first met online, but no one from PF. The people I met from the internet turned out to be the same in person as they were online, so it was like meeting up with an old friend. I feel so close to some members here that I feel that we've already met. Having met in person just isn't necessary for me to form an attachment.

I treasure the friends I've made on PF. When we chat, it's like there is no distance between us. You guys live in my computer monitor, so you're never far.

So, if any of you fail to post without prior notice...I WILL BAN YOU, because *I care*.
I has a happy now. Yay for PF family!

Looks like everyone's avoiding to give names.

To be honest, I never thought I'd become a 'regular' PF member, sure I do have lots of friends who I care for, I won't list them here []. But I have to say, Turbo was my first PF buddy, and micro is the last [so far ] on my PF 'close' friends.

PS. Why don't you ask your wife to join PF, Turbo? And be the third PF couple here on PF. As far as I know there're Ivan+Tsu and Borek+Marzena.

I don't want to give out names, because I might forget somebody. I don't want to hurt a person by forgetting them.
But you are certainly on my friends list drizzle!!

My wife is not a computer user. She was thrilled to have Astro and his family visit us, but that was all second hand to her,

BTW, Gad, my real name is Harley. When I picked out that leather-covered recliner, and I gave my real name to the sales-lady, she grabbed my hand and said "why didn't you keep that?"

My wife has two degrees in physics and a degree in engineering, but she won't join. She thinks of Physics Forums as my mistress.

Obviously, you didn't tell her about the PF sisterhood!

My mother was going to name me Peter James, but in a fit of unreason, she named me after my father.

Your father has the same name, Turbo? This is rare over here, a few people might name a child after his father, only if the father passed away, same for girls. But again not common.

We don't name a girl after her father while the father is still alive either. Lest the angel of death come for the elder and mistakingly take the younger.

I really didn't look into it, Jimmy. I recall one of my Egyptian teachers has a name #### Ali Ali Ali Ali Ali then some other name.

I thought it's easier to just say her name then Ali5.
