Ok, so Winkelried's back...


The esteemed Arnold Winkelried has been summoned by some dark magic by our own TubaDiva. And apparently whatever voodoo she's mastered actually works, because Noodles has returned. See:
https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...d.php?t=888373

Tuba, for your next dark art performance can you maybe summon Marley? How about John Mace? Can you help me find a lost library book? Thanks in advance...

I claim no credit. I just tracked him down, that's all.

And he's not really back back; he's just fixing the Picture Pages. Which we appreciate.

Marley is so busy he can't pay attention; I don't expect to hear from him anytime soon. I think mostly he's about Dad business these days.

I talked to John Mace a few months ago; he said he might be back maybe. That's the best I could get from him. I wish he'd consider it.

Master Wang-Ka made an appearance, too. I wonder if that's related?

Is there a dope-signal flying from the Sears Tower?

If I had one, I'd light it up for sure. "Olly-olly oxen free!"

Of course where this place is concerned, "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."

I mentioned this elsewhere but it may have gotten lost in the shuffle ------- is the old email still good, should the stickie about the gallery be updated or replaced with a new one? And what ever happened to Emma-Lou? Sorry -- an Edge of Wetness flashback right at the end. But I love the gallery and hope to see additions and all go with as little pain to him as possible.

I waited in vain for Zenster to beg forgiveness and return to the fold, but I think he found the Huffmobile too comfy.

Waiting to hear from Arnold about how to handle this. I would hold off of any edits or changes until he's ready for us.

I'd be happy if you could summon Sampiro summoned next after Eve. And then Super Kapowzler, bitches ;-) !

I talked to Eve recently. She is currently working on a book and needs no distractions from real life. She also told me "I prefer to use email, as my ancestors did." She's not fond of social media; a recent attempt to get her on Facebook to promote sales of her books failed miserably and she wound up screaming "NO!" and shutting everything down.

Eve was a lovely addition to our community but she was not always treated with the respect she deserved. Never say never in this crazy ol' world but I don't think she'll be back.

Sampiro has an email address listed. You could always reach out and say "I wish you'd come back." What's the worst thing they would say?

Super Kapowzler does not have a public email address listed and has not been to the board since 2013. Was it something we said? Can't tell.

For anyone that has a public address listed, you want to see them, tell them so. Send them a PM: maybe they're lurking. Show them some love. See what happens.

Sounds like a plan. Its just something that crossed my brain and figuring some other brains may be in a like state I figured I would drop a dime to TPTB. Which I guess is mostly you. But I'm never real sure about things like that.
