I just want to take this opportunity to "publically" apologize to
Charlie who sent me the incredible music cd's and who I have broken an
unwritten rule about screwing up and sending a cartoon without making
sure everyone was completely Bcc. in the address header portion of the
e-mail. After his rant at me (justified of course) and his
accusations that I'd betrayed a trust (that was a hurt, I'd NEVER do
that deliberately, and even at 56, I still make mistakes) I've done
as he's requested of me. I've deleted his address from my computer.
I've sent all his replies to the trash and emptied it from my
computer, ran a virus scan that came up squeeky clean, and found the
cd's he sent me and mailed them back to him and crossed out his
address in my garden friends part of my snail mail garden book. I
can't do any better unless I just stop communicating altogether, and I
like too many of the gardeners here to just stop. But I can just get
e-mails and stuff sent innocently from long time gardening friends
I've known now for 14 years and trust them still and just not share
anymore. Keep them to myself, and only send JPG's that have been
resized and only gardening updates and only post from here or Garden
Web in the future..
It was a hurt for me to think he was so angry at me for something I
didnt' deliberately do, especially when I was so careful to make sure
what I sent was Bcc........so I just won't do it anymore. period. and
I've probably pissed him off by responding back that I'd do all that
he asked and he didn't want me to respond. but I am too caring and
considerate in the first place. And if he deleted my efforts to do
what he asked and apologize, then he might see it here, instead. where
he can lurk and ignore me completely as he's entitled to do. I feel
bad enough as it is. But I will get over it. His kindness to send me
that music was something that I appreciated when my life was falling
apart and I was losing everything around me. I never took that
kindness for granted. Not with how I revere music. (as well as my
gardening, it's been my salvation and muse, which is another reason
James and I are cut from the same cloth!)
maddie (madgardener) still plugging along, looking for a home of her
own to garden madly in with her hubby, James somewhere in Tennessee.

The mass of blackbirds depended on the fresh water I provided. Some
like it so much that they rallied a thousand more. The amount turned
them into pests. Luckily a loner that stays about did not go with the
flock. Guess it is easy to spook and fly some where. Seems harder to
do things as an individual. This with boat tailed grackles.
You are making an assumption based upon reading one side of this
issue, an issue which should *not* have gone public in this forum,
which is basically the issue with which I have a huge problem...public
discussion and acknowlegement of communications that are private,
something that I made clear from the beginning, is unacceptable to me.
I had this same go-around last year, ongroup, with Ann R, after she
publically announced my private communications with this same person
who now once again discusses offchannel things that I have requested
to remain private, namely never mentioning publically anything done or
said offgroup. This is apparently not important to some, but it is to
me, for whatever reasons *I* determine.
There was no reason, other than her apparent inordinate need for
attention, for this issue to have come up ongroup, since this
information was also conferred to me privately, but not with the
distortion of and addition to what I actually said and the portrayal
of my request as angry and a rant.
I guess I missed this posting, but when I think of ostentatious, I think
of Rev. Ted Haggard or Joe McCarthy. Maddie could have born her hair
shirt and ashes in private, but she chooses to wear them in public, hmmm.
I know nothing of this private matter and wonder at its' exhibition.
My 72 slot germination tray is sanitized, as is my potting soil.
Saturday, my '09 garden will begin.
