Friends Gone but not Forgotten

Yesterday My blog was silent to Honor Friends that have left Blogland.
These people have left but as far as i know are all still alive .
I did not fake my own death on the blogs because death is a serious & painfull matter to me.
I also in the last few days had to read about a local 19 year old girl who got lost & stranded with her mother in the snow
The mother stayed in the car & the 19 year old left to get help.
2 days later the Mother was found & is alive & ok
The daughter was found a half mile up in the canyon- dead.
Reason for this tragedy- Mother & daughter wanted to get home roads were CLOSED & instead of staying in town overnight They thought they could get home on the old Hiway.That error in judgement
cost a young girl her life.
Years ago There was a Gorgous Brunette Girl that
was out with friends drinking the car & 4 people
went off the road at a curve,rolled several times
no one was wearing seatbelts & all 4 had closed caskets.

Thank You Divinitydesires,Individuals & thier antics that have hurt people here of late have tested my "Goodness" but I know that this too shall pass.We are here to have fun, Meet people, The bad ones we
simply ignore & delete - They have no power but that which we give them. The good ones though gone we will fondly remember.

He says - Every year our community sees one or more senseless fatalities, usually associated with visitors who don't respect the elements. I have several friends who are involved with the Nordic Search & Rescue operations nearby; people who only get phone calls after midnight.

Our children are taught winter survival training in second grade. They might not be qualified to enter the state university system when they graduate high school, but most could survive days in the wild and find help.

Not everyone on your list is gone, Jim. Some just had to hide. One day, you're going to have to tell us where your train travels take you. Maybe we can cheer you on at a crossing sometime.

Welcome RomeoMEETSJuliete- I would think that Winter survival should be taught to people that live in the areas where they get snow,I know
that there are some on my list that had to leave -that they had to hide,or are hurting & just don't feel like blogging I understand.
My point is that they are not here right now & that they ARE Missed.
My train travels are limited, but if you go back in my blog a couple pages You will find my "History Tour" That is where I am for now.
I may go back to Carson City Memorial Day weekend as it looks like the only train I will be riding for awhile. Note to Juliet-on the other postwhere you left a comment- Thank You. May the 2 of you find Happiness together.Jim

I agree totally with Divinity

You are definitely a good man Jim

And I'm sure some of those bloggers will be back

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo

Jim ... You are truly a rock-solid, straight-shootin' man's man! I've been observing life here in Blogville from afar. I count you as a true friend, and I'd love to meet you someday! Love the new Sherlock Holmes look too by the way!

She says - Not everyone on your list is gone indeed. Some of us did have to hide. For that, I apologize.
