    Calling FoolishOld...

    ...as much as I know how much you love your tree house near Key West I hope to God you've broken the habit of a life time and followed official advice and headed North!

    If by some miracle you should happen to see this drop in and let us know how you are.

    Amen.

    I really hope he's doing well, and is safe during the storm.

    (I've sent him a PM or 2, over the years, just to check in, but have never gotten a response. IIRC, he broke ties with this site after some particularly poor interactions with mods/admin (over a 'suicide' thread) and hasn't even logged in since. A shame, really, he was such a consistent voice of well tempered reason and intelligence around here for so long.)

    Irma has done too much damage already for one storm, I'm hoping it goes further west and fizzles.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    I tried to call him yesterday, I have a few other Floridians I was checking on too, and got no answer. His home phone gives the "disconnected" msg, and his cell gives the "can't be completed as dialed" msg. I'm hoping he gave up his landline and maybe cell service sucks wherever he may be. I just tried again now, same thing.

    Stay safe F.O. wherever you are.

    That doesn't sound good.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    I seem to recall a goodbye post that explained that he had some personal (health?) issues to tend to. I looked back through his posts but couldn't find it.

    I thought I saw the same thing you did. I don't post much just read mostly.
