BYC forum Sorry longgggggggggg post

Discussion in 'Random Ramblings' started by sundance, Mar 29, 2008.

  1. Being a senior citizen and living on a fixed income have looked at LOTS of web sites lately, with the dollar shrinking and prices rising I wanted to see how other people were handling the same situation i was in. So Now I know why BYC has over 8000 members, Other sites seem to be stuck on one subject, allow no one to post pix, stay on subject or have some adult ,would options be the correct phrase? With BYC we are like a large family, If someone finds something to recycle everyone is as excited as if they were the one that found it, If you need prayer and ask, you get it, and being a military parent and grandparent, when you see a strange car on your street your heart almost stops's, so instead of calling a friend. or family which i have close by I go to my keyboard, knowing I will get support. even tho some of you don't support the war, you support the troops, You have no idea what that means to us. Sometimes we don't take the time to look for the search button at the top of the page , because we're frantic about something and need advice. and our Mods, they deserve 3 no make it 5 cheers for all the work they do. I have no problem letting great granddau,on this website due to our mods,She is 10 and wants to raise chickens for 4 H in jr High mostly due to this website. AGAIN THANX TO ALL 7999 & COUNTING of you (Esp our Mods) , you bring joy to an old womans heart. marrie

    Marie,

    You are a sweetheart! [​IMG]

    I got the warm-fuzzies reading your post! We've never met, in person, but wanted to let you know that if you ever need help or anything at all, we're only a yell and about 40 minutes away! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] to everyone else, too! BYC has been a home-away-from-homes for me!
