Where is OLD51JOHN?
 
Not sure what made me think of it, but I haven't seen him in a while. That made me look up his profile, and his last activity was 01-24-2012. I know he's 80-something too.

Anyone know him? I hope all's well...

I could have sworn he's posted after that date/recently but the boards don't lie /shrugs

ksp1957 06-18-2012 06:21 PM

I hope he's okay. I love hearing from him. Then again, if it's a poster that's older than me, I love hearing from them too.

Dogberry 06-18-2012 06:22 PM

I guess he is ok... I learned that someone has had contact from him recently.

Gotcha beat by a few years - older than dirt.

I could have sworn this too.

But good to hear someone has had contact with him recently.

I really miss his incoherent ramblings and ambiguous topic titles.

Amen to that.

I remember reading one of his posts and he said the first time he went to a Bruins game was 1938. That was before both of my mother's parents were born.

I could be wrong but I`m almost sure that John posts only during the season, kinda takes his summers off??

I have provided more than my share of incoherent ramblings, filled with ambiguous topics

Thanks to all concerned
 
I have not been able to log in thanks mostley to old age lack of computer awareness.....I have missed being able to add my opionion... For what it is worth???? To the board members who were kind enough to remember me I think it was you who convinced me to try again to get on the board . And to the higher archey who stayed with me in my many attempts to reestablish board privelages THANKS

Welcome back!

As a digital guy (my job focuses on tech and social media), it's great to see the older generation embrace technology to a certain extent. :)

Welcome back John...always great to hear from you...and if your ever having technical issues I'm sure if you contact some of the members on here they would be glad to help you out. A lot of people here love hearing your opinion. My own father is 82, I love picking his brain anytime I can. Keep coming back John.
