Very true.
Certainly no judgement, I always thought the guy was funny.

I actually missed the thread, but saw the references.
It had to have been late summer or early fall IIRC?

Guy did some risky stuff, but I have to admit it crossed my mind.
I've fought depression my adult life, I think it makes things like that jump out as a possibility.

It was probably last summer. He put some info in it that shouldn't be on the web, and several people told him to have the entire thread deleted, which he did after only a day or two at most. I never saw him post again after that.

You never know...he could have shot himself up with testosterone, popped a blue pill and went out banging a 20 year old...with a smile on his face.

From his posts it was clear that he truly loved her, so "his beloved wife" is a completely true statement.

Like I said, I missed the thread about the divorce...but it certainly appeared that it took him by surprise from what I remember hearing in the past.

I think I'm still a little weirded out by how things were treated after the NN incident.

The last PM we had they had not reconciled. He was pretty upset about it.

You never know if it would have helped, but I kind of wish you and I both could have chatted with him to let him know that, yeah, divorce sucks a bum's crusty ass, BUT, this too shall pass. I know the couple conversations we have had, have been enough to let me know "I ain't the Lone Ranger"
