Sorry I haven't been around much, just that this is the time of year that Jerry enjoyed the most. Because there was "NO SNOW"! So I'm having a bit of trouble. Raining here lately, and I'm kind of "down"! Hoping the sun will come out soon!



And I miss you Jerry! This time of year is hard without you!



So, . . . I'm just having a hard time this time of year.
Good thing it's raining, no one can see my tears!

Just that Jerry always "got" my jokes! Hope this makes you laugh anyways!

Kind of nice to see this topic going. I am sure Jerry would want it this way. About a year ago the database got corrupted and it looked like PW had removed the topic. This is part of a conversation Jerry had with me about it...

One person, who had cancer, was having treatments, was feeling miserable and let down (going into more detail than I did on PW) wrote me an email thanking me up and down for that particular thread. In fact, many people have thanked me for it. He said, "Mr. Groot, I just wanted to thank you for making me smile. I come onto Piano World and the very first thing that I do, is read your thread to see what other funny things you and your friends have posted in there to make me laugh! You see Mr. Groot, I have cancer. Most of my days are not very pleasant. In fact, they are miserable. I come on PW just so that I can be uplifted by your wonderful humor so, thank you for that and keep it up!" So, we kept it up just for people like that.

There are other stories that are similar just not so grim as cancer...

I do hope that the thread is revived and if not, at least an explanation is given for killing it. I don't think we crossed any lines. smile

Forum Quiz


On a forum, sometimes I feel like:

(Or, "Name that Movie!")

1. "What we've got here is a failure to communicate."
2. "This isn't a hospital, it's an insane asylum!"
3. "I'm as mad as *** and I'm not going to take this anymore!"
4. "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!"
5. "A martini. Shaken, not stirred."
6. "Get out of my way son, you're usin' my oxygen."
7. "I haven't got a brain... only straw."
8. "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night."
