Just got back from China. It was cold, polluted and utterly fascinating.

I don't know how I let this thread get so old . . . except I have been traveling a lot, and when I'm home the house and yard need lots of work.

Anyway, everybody is welcome to Rocky's Coffee Club. Are any of my old friends checking in these days?

I just built a dog run behind my house. I've been planning it for months, and the work took a few weeks (digging post holes, painting lumber) but I'm happy with the way it turned out. And my little doggie likes the outdoor freedom.

When someone says the word "period" after making a statement, doesn't that mean that there is nothing further to say; that there is no further need to explain or give exceptions to the thrust of the statement? It seems a great orator would know what saying "period" at the end of a statement of fact means to a listener.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. I put my diet on hold and enjoy . . . with nearby family and friends.

As one of the few left who remember Rocky, in whose name this thread is created, I know he would want to join me in wishing all of you a very happy Thanksgiving, too.

Happy Thanksgiving Qui-Gon. I never knew Rocky but I think he would have wanted us all to get on and be friends. I would like this to be so.

The Pro Bowl was an improvement this year, but there was still the issue of missing players from the two Super Bowl teams.

I am a 61 year old retired lawyer. I don't get to the forums much anymore, but that kenzieB flap is much ado about nothing.

Hi Qui-Gon! How are you? I don't think we've met yet! So nice to see this thread pop up because I am very much a coffee drinker. It definitely helps me wake up in the mornings although I don't always make a lot of sense for quite a long time afterwards :)

Hi Anniet, Rocky was a friend of mine who I never met in person, but chatted with many times here. He and I both served in the Navy, a long time ago, where groups of sailors would often form a "coffee club" to share the expense of making a pot of coffee (or more) for their members each morning. There are very few restrictions to posting on these boards and those are observed here, but other than that all are welcome.

PS, I am not a Jedi Knight.

And I am not Princess Leia :) (could never get my hair that organised for a start)
My grandfather on my mum's side was an officer working on the submarines during the second world war. Apparently he never spoke about his experiences and lost a lot of friends during that time. The man that went to war was not the same man that came back, and it's always left me with a sad feeling. I imagine strong bonds are formed - and I can't help thinking there must have been a part of him that felt isolated and very lonely without someone to "have coffee with" who shared similar experiences to him. It's nice you and Rocky found each other here. I imagine if the internet had been around before my grandad died, he may have, in his last years, smiled more readily than he did.

With that avatar I can't ever read anything you write without hearing Liam Neeson's voice in my head.

Qui-Gon also has a very unique set of skills.

I recall some folks saying my avatar and nom-de-plume were "unfortunate", though no one ever explained why that was.
