I haven't been here in quite a long time! (Got involved in life,..and many other things). I got involved with support in cancer forums (since I am a 3-year survivor now,...whoot!). But what got me thinking about you guys again,..was that while supporting cancer (and Linux) forums, I started a facebook page.
Lo-an-behold,...pentes that I haven't heard from in like 40 to 50 years started contacting me from my FB page. One,..I had mixed feelings about,..since we were in the very first class of the Bible College of this group (UPC). And she no longer is part of the ideology nor philosophy of the group (or so she says). She was very ingrained in it (family members very involved). Another poster is still pretty entrenced in it,..and I "goofed" by "friending" her. Then I got glops and glops of pente stuff constantly showing up on my FB page. Ohhhhhhhh,...fun, fun.
I had to "unfriend" her,...now feel so very badly, since her husband just died (and I feel like I should have been an "old friend, from the past"). Mind you,...I am now 70 years old,..and I last saw them waaaaaaaaaaay back in the good ol' 60's and early 70's. (went into other forms of pente-dom after that for awhile). But the "creepy-crawly" feelings come back to me like it was yesterday (or at least like last week.). Any body else have flash-backs like that after decades?
I have been so very happy to be free of that,...and (especially when you get older) the memories can crash in so very raw and real, just like they happened recently. Thanks, guys,..just had to comment, and say "hi",...love this group, it has helped me so much.
