Default Has anyone heard from chilhuacle/Bruce?

He hasn't logged in for over a solid month.

One last word of farewell, Dear Master and Mistress.

Whenever you visit my grave,

say to yourselves with regret

but also with happiness in your hearts

at the remembrance of my long happy life with you:

"Here lies one who loved us and whom we loved."

No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you,

and not all the power of death

can keep my spirit

from wagging a grateful tail.

He said he was busy on 24/8/2007... not as much time to log in.
Haven't heard from the legend and fine fellow since then.
Loved his pics and posts.

I was wondering the same thing. I really enjoyed growing his Sleazy A cross and was curious about the end of his growing season. His posts are interesting and his pics are outstanding.

Yea, where the heck is Bruce?

I get busy but still try to log in every several days to speed read the good stuff and a month is a long time.

Hope all is well Bruce.

I pm'd him a month back and he also told me the same thing--that he was busy and haven't had time to come as often. Hopefully, he'll get less busy soon and check back in.

Cheers, Annie

I've heard from him. The tomatoes here are really slowing down but I have a good second crop of greenies on some of the plants. Hope the weather stays warm long enough for them to ripen.

It's been pretty hectic around here. My FIL has the drug resistant staph (MRSA). It nearly killed him twice and he's been in and out of the hospital. He's tough though and it looks like he'll pull through. He has already worn out 2 pace makers!

Going to check the boards now and see what I've missed. My dwarf plants were a disaster but I did get good results with the 9 indeterminate Sleazy A plants. Will post some pictures.

I've also been wondering where you are Bruce, you are missed! Wondering if you have named any of your Sleazys yet? Some of the Sleazy Bs I grew were definitely worth pursuing, sweet and tangy 8)

The only one of yours that I'm growing personally this season is Wild Fred F4 from one of Craig's selections of Sleazy A (Kionga and Full Moon are also, and mcsee is either growing WF or a Sleazy B F4 from Craig, which Full Moon has too). A convoluted sentence, sorry

Truth is colourful, not just black and white. PP: 2005
