I'm back

Post by heat mirage » Mon Aug 11, 2014 7:29 pm

I'm back in Desert USA forums again after disappearing for seven years. I took a job on the local newspaper and never had time for anything else until I resigned at the beginning of May last year. I used to post forums under Bob C, and I see that my good buddies Rep, Space Cowboy and Custis are still here. I was crushed to find out that Norm died some time ago. He and I used to exchange e-mails and tell lies. He was a hell of a guy. Desert USA still is lively and full of information and great personalities. It's a pleasure returning to the forums. I'm looking forward viewing posts and interacting with everyone.

You would show up the week I'm transitioning to a new computer. I haven't been here for days. So what do we call you, Bob or Mirage, or maybe Heat? How's the family? Why'd you quit the newspaper gig? What are you doing now?

Place has been pretty quiet for quite some time. Tell us of your adventures.

Great to hear from you, my friend. Heck, just call me Bob. The family's fine; the kids are leaving the nest now. My eldest son and daughter live in Reno and my second daughter will graduate from high school next June and also head to Reno. My youngest daughter is a high school sophomore and my youngest son is 7. The newspaper job turned sour a couple of years ago. The paper I wrote for was owned by a newspaper in a nearby larger town and we were all part of the Gannett chain. Our parent newspaper prevented us from making changes that would make our website relevant to our readers, mandated processes that made our jobs more difficult and the publisher and managing editor were contemptuous of "the newspaper down the road." I finally had enough, took second golf course job along with a $5 per hour pay cut, but the peace of mind was worth it. How is your book coming along? I lost interest in mine.

Purely entertainment. I do find myself obsessing on Tirzo de la Toba, and Billy 'Kid' Thompson, for no other reason than I can't find anything on them. Well, except for primary historical sources.

And its all Randall Henderson's fault.
