Here is my 22 cents worth. I miss Red, I think the success of this board is largely due to the positive Red influence. She doesn’t care who you are, what you have posted, how stupid some of our questions are, or your station in life., she does however care about each and every one of you and I think each of us feels that. I don’t know what brings each of us to this board, I am a 46 year old with 3 little boys, our life revolves around the barn, and for me this is my contact for a few minutes each day with the outside world and people who have the same interest as I do. Red and I have become friends through this board and I am thankful for that, our paths may never have crossed anywhere else in life. I think we get so wrapped up in our own thoughts and our own beliefs that we sometimes forget that we aren’t talking to a computer, there is a person behind the screen name out there. Red is the 1st to make someone feel welcome, the 1st to applaud our victories, if you miss her, I suggest you email and let her know you miss her.
