Just a formal notice, since I told TubaDiva that I’d do this too, that I’ve changed my user name from DeniseV.
Contrary to what my registry date says, I’ve actually been around a lot longer. I’ve been lurking on and off for at least a year, often wanting to post something but never really wanting to register to do so, or not being able to come up with a decent username. Well, finally I still wasn’t able to come up with a good one, but I registered and posted anyway, and I’ve been participating ever since.
A new username, one that I liked better, finally occurred to me, and I got the official change-over today. I picked the name because I own ferrets as pets, and because “ferret herding” is rather like the concept of “cat herding” - pretty fruitless, but much more frantic due to the hyperactivity of ferrets. That feeling fits my life pretty closely at times, plus I like the humorous mental image.
And in light of the Thanksgiving holiday and the passing of one of our members, thanks to everyone who contributes to this board and makes it interesting to read, and thank you to those who I’ve corresponded with off-board and/or who’ve touched my heart in some fashion. This can be quite a challenging and even frustrating place, but it’s definitely been worthwhile for me.
