Friends from the Past!

Canada
August 11, 2015 3:07pm CST
Oh my, with the demise of the original myLot, I lost a TRUE world of friends....some SO, SO attached too, I worried if they did not post for days....some we got into heated banters...some we kicked each others butts....some philosophical...some just lit your day...WHAT a special gathering of world-wide friends I had....and just to know we might connect again, gave me a leap of joy....true tears...I do remember you all, and how you made my day......I do need to point out, that it was my dear Sids..."now the busysids" that brought me home. But, I truly do hope, I will meet you all again in a HUGE party here, again!

Well hello there! I'm slowly seeing a lot of people reappear. Unfortunately, there are those that passed on while we were away, but many of us are reconnecting again.

@topffer Well, you tend to respond better and quicker when I ring your bell here than when I do it through e-mail or on Skype.

Wow, dear Sparks......so nice to re-meet an old friend, a collection of solace was what the old myLot seemed to me. I could get up in the morning, and know I had a friend to share coffee with........I was so unhappy when this site demised.....so pleased we are now back in touch!

@pergammano Sometimes there is drama on FB, so I try to stay away from it. I just poke my head in and try not to let anyone know I've been there - ha ha! Yes, I heard about the massives fires - oh gosh, how are you all doing out there? We are doing well - seemed like a short summer vacation as the kids start school next week. I personally would like another month off for them! I look forward to catching up with you!

I am also anxious to see some here that i saw in the past. I think though that since mylot has onlyh been back for a short time, that it will take time for them to get back in the swing of things and enjoy their time here. I always enjoyed myself in here so much, and I missed that for the two years I was gone. I am so happy to be back and I am so glad that we will be paid again. I have always liked mylot, and now we all have a reason to like it again.Take care and have fun mylotting.

@rosekiss In fact, when many left MyLot, they must have become used to living without it. 2 years is a long time. Now when mylot has sprung back am sure, they will all return - and that may need to make some adjustments and alterations for sure.

Now, I definitely missed you. You might not remember me (which is understandable), but I looked for you on another site, hoping to catch you if you joined. I'm glad to see you here again.

Hi Sis, I am not sure whether I'm old or new but leave it to you to decide. I am sure you still have that gathering but the way the notifications working not many of us know who is online. Hope to see you more often

Well, from the comments I've been reading, a lot of old members have left the site and are not aware of the site up and running. I got to know about this site on a blog site, and I joined yesterday. Its been fun. I will be spending more time on here.

It's funny seeing all the oldies back here on MYLot. I did have a few on facebook, and kept in contact with them through that. But I completely agree I remember logging on, and not hearing from them for a few days and thinking the worst.

Hello there @Pergammano We had meet ups here in the past, but after that I didnt have the guts to continue seeing them again after the last meet up w/ different people. I guess if i did have an abudance of money, it would have been once a month. But enough of that, what's important here is that we get to chat again no how bad the day is. Have a nice day.

I am so glad to see you here, I just SO missed the interaction, the fact that I was travelling all over the world, whilst just drinking my morning coffee. The money did help, but really not important, it offset my internet costs, as they are much higher living on an Island......but it was/is the expansion of my horizon that excites me. I am having problems navigating the new site, as I am computer challenged...hopefully will get there soon.

So you posted this and came back for a little while, but now you are gone again. Is everything alright? Do you just not have time or you don't enjoy this new format or what?

Carmela....I am so sorry, I have not been active, at all. To be honest with you, I was fearful of coming back....fearful that so many of my dear friends would not be here, and you know how life is, you do not want it to change...but on the other hand, you want it to change. I promise to get back in the groove, and make it my morning coffee klatch. My problem is that I get up at 3:30 a.m., so am a day late on activities here....Especially happy to know you are still here....how is the family

@pergammano Family is great. My son is a freshman this year and I have decided to home school him. It works out really well, since now that my husband is retired and my son's school work is mostly online, we can do things we wouldn't be able to do if he still went to public school. SO you get up at 3 am? Yikes, I don't envy you. As I mentioned in my message to you, I am also not here often, but it is good to see old friends and make new ones. The only drawback is knowing some friends who have passed on and I will never get to chat with them again in this lifetime.
