    Where are you from? Depends on when you ask... the folks are in ABQ, but 9 months of the year I'm in Grand Rapids, Michigan for school!
    How did you find your way to Mos Alba? A few years ago I saw a flier in Cherry Hills Library, checked out the site but didn't join because I knew I'd be going out of town for college. Same story now, but I really want to make time to meet up with other geeks while I'm home between semesters.
    Favorite Star Wars episode: Ack, depends on the day... most days, ESB!
    Favorite Star Wars character: Boba Fett all the way.
    If you could be re-incarnated as an animal, what one would you choose? Has to be a cat. Quiet, but always up to something...
    How's the weather? I'm still in Grand Rapids for a few weeks, 99% of the time it is CLOUDY AND DAMP. Rain is redundant up here, everything is already wet.

    I'm out of town a lot but I really do want to get to a few meetings if possible- and if you fine folks will have me, of course! Winter break runs long for me this year (Dec. 15-Jan. 30 or summat like that) so here's hoping. :)

    Welcome Jeff!!!

    Time to knock the dust off that helmet!! We have a troop coming up on the 17th. Can you make it in from Socorro? I'm sure we could fix you up with a place to stay for the night.

    Not to sound all negative, but how's that old saying go? You can't go back home again?

    Despite best intentions, it'll never be the same as it once was. People's priorities have changed, other responsibilities have started, not to mention too many bridges burned and all that.

    But that's not to say that Mos Alba can't be a thriving chapter again. But it's going to take a lot of work for friendships and trust to be rebuilt.

    I'd like to see it happen. This is where it all started for me.

    That....is why you fail. Ok....not really! :D

    Some friendships and trusts will never be rebuilt...that is true! But the friendships that have survived have said it is a time for a revival of a sort. It may not ever get to what it was 1.5 years ago.......but we will try! [:D] I for one said I would not come back......but some members kept asking me to come back and start posting! So, I said I would give it a try! Smile.....we are just having fun! Happy Days!

    The world moves on. As it always will. I've made so many great friends here and am truly grateful for being part of such a group. I wouldn't worry about "growing" the group. Things are fine the way they are and as they change we change with them. Whether it's 2 or 200, it's all the same to me!

    I for one, I Miss the old Days, the BBQ at Bob's house that summer that was great we had like 100 people there, the BBQ at Jess's when we worked on Armor and drank into the night. Greg Moss would break out the Guitar and play. At Sean's house when Dave played Pink Floyd wishing you where here, we all sung along , BBQ at James's House's , at Karen's House , The Christmas Parties, The New Year's Eve Party at Cyndi's house, Roman's we sat out side hung out playing Guitars and part took of the sprits. Great times , The ROTC release at Hastings we trooped there , and Katrina Troop was Wonderful. The Bowling teams where Bob,Ben team won, Those times the great Friends I miss. =D=

    I agree...those were the days......but those days are still here.....just not on that grand scale! I do not think we could achieve those numbers again....but you never know....I am optimistic! At least we still have the cantina.....from there it will grow.

    Can't forget the times we Trooped for CMN at Wallyworld. I can't thank you guys enough for that. I got into a conversation with someone who is a big SW fan the other day. I asked her if she had heard of Mos Alba and she said "yeah. Weren't they the group that did the symphony"?...word.
