Hi Peter Bro...Jesse Joe decided to take a break from cyber space. He let his high speed internet connection lapse for the winter. He said he needed a break but will probably come back in the spring.

I sure hope he does. I miss him You are right, Corfid isn't the same without him but I guess everyone needs something different now and then.

You are right, Peter Bro, the place just isn't the same without him! I can get a letter to him. I'll try to get to a printer within the next week or two and print out this thread and mail it to him.

Patti, if you get a letter to Jesse Joe please tell him to hurry back-there's a piece of the list missing w/o him.

No, I haven't heard back from him. It sure was nice to hear from him in January. It would be nice to see him on corfid again.

Well, Jesse Joe, where ever you are, Merry Christmas!!
P-Bro (been awhile since I called you that, makes me think *after I type it* of Peabro Bryson (sp?) - a soul/R&B entertainer as I recall from the late 70's to mid 80's maybe ? - Anyway, you're right, the place isn't the same w/o him.

I was just sitting and thinking about Jesse. He, or rather his membership in corfid started out kind of up down and sideways, as I recall, not so much rocky at all, but he had a tendency to want to be friends so fast at first, which is certainly no crime. Its just how I remember the early Jesse. I remember his wavering on how his name should be spelled, despite it coming directly from "Flying Blind" as I recall; I think the Q he had at first was did the given spelling in verse render an ambiguous gender ? He worried over that for a few days as I recall.

I certainly did too have my rough (still do once in awhile) moments when the room was a bit more bositerous from the peanut galleries, a few individuals perhaps, no matter. He weathered it, and he even had the endurance to listen to several well-meant suggestions, and a few not so well meant, and for that matter, not so well in origin.

He even allowed me the windage when he was taking flaming arrows, right and left, he was taking shelter from behind the overturned buckboard, so to speak. That is to say, he allowed me to comment upon the omni-presence of him, or maybe more properly said - his apparent ubiquitous presence in each thread and seemingly through the distorted lens of memory, each post, which he certainly didn't. It only seemed that way. Wel anyway (lol) - I keep losing my way here, he alllowed me to comment upon this perception of him, where I stated that I wanted to help, and I explained my less-than-brilliant observation.

It was at a time where he and I both were experiencing some rocky replies due I guess to more pronounced (for both of us) habits and manner of writing that apparently agitated a rather caustic few, and he and I both certainnly heard about it. And then, I thought I saw what he was wanting (friendship, what a terrible crime) and that was all he was vigorously pursuing at the time, a rocky time indeed in corfid, around late 2006, early '07.

In my longish (laughs from the peanut gallery) post to him, I explained how a person tends to get burned when they try to make friends to quick. "Fast friends make for fast enemies all to often" was the message I tried, still typing far worse than I do now, punctuation, long-windedness, at a time when I was taking a lot of heat from a caustic few as well. I still blabber on long-windedly, I know it, you all know it, and quite simply, its who I am. And I grew early on to like Jessie for who he was, when he was having difficulty in explaining his mission.

Point is -he had the good character to listen, and to think upon it, and reply cogently. I compliment him now on that, something I should do so well as.

So, any way, I wonder too where is Jessie Joe, hope he is allright; and I am glad the flaming arrows stopped at him long back, as they (for the most part lol) have for me now. I recall when he was having some transitional difficulty to all-english when he was apparently accustomed to a mix of the two with frequent euphemisms that sounded French, like 'They hear us, like the flies on the wall"

How boring corfid would be if we were all alike. And Jessie is certainly a likable character, and I do hope he is well.

PeterBro - you once I saw asked casually in a thread called "Has anybody seen or heard from Geo-Steve ?" - and now, more than ever, as you ask about Jessie, you reveal, as you allways have, including then, a vary kind and caring nature. All this talk has been to get to that point, and, to...sort of celebrate our differences. I miss him too. Thank you for caring enough to ask, P-Bro

"How boring corfid would be if we were all alike".

Blabber on Geo Steve - I enjoy your musings. Although, in life we all gravitate towards certain personalities and traits, here at Corfid I'm always amazed and delighted at the variety of personalities, backgrounds, life experiences and nationalities that have been brought together by one man and his music.
How boring indeed,... if we were all alike!!...

"Blabber on Geo Steve " - Thank you Yuri - and for the way you have as a characteristic of yours of wisely summing-up a common thread we perhaps are not seeing, and making a thought-provking....summation isnot the word....but maybe summarizing point-to-pomder so well. I always enjoy reading yours.

Having been formallybeen given the kind permission to blabber-on, I need never apologize for that again. jj and a few other said I say sorry too much anyway... so as I have been encouraged to, I will proudly tack-along, brandishing my attempts at modest erudition while tilting at my own envisioned windmills of the parts 'o my brain that havn't gone thunk to many times

Thanks, Yuri
