RE: [RC] [RC] howard and getting run over - Howard Bramhall

Oh, my goodness. An apology, to me???? This is quite a first. After 4 or 5 years on Ridecamp, I've been called things from Satan Incarnate to a Complete Moron and Idiot of the First Order and here I get an apology over something that didn't bother me in the least. A phrase like "a big mouth fool" is actually a compliment to me compared to what I normally receive after accidentally setting fire to someone's tent. I guess my skin has become so thickened over the years it takes a dart shot out of a bazooka directly into my heart for me to react anymore.

Anyway, Cate, I never asked for this apology and never wanted one. Your Dad was correct, I'm an old fool with a big mouth. I just cannot help myself sometimes. I don't know what to say except I'm overwhelmed and it is I who should go into lurking, not yourself.

You have brought to the table an issue that really needs to be discussed. We have so many added dangers at our rides, especially the crowded ones or ones where the Ride Manager does make some errors that need to be corrected, I'd hate for you to go into permanent exhile over something like this.

For once, I'm at a loss for words here. Nobody should ever be afraid to speak out, especially on a forum like this one. Sometimes the words don't come out exactly as one might have meant, but, that doesn't mean they shouldn't come out at all. Happens to me quite often. That's why I enjoy having Truman around; he's real good at explaining what I really meant to say after I've said it.

Howard (I have the feeling that Cate is such a sweetheart we can't afford to lose her)

Please Reply to: cate Peloquin cpenguin57@xxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

First, I don't have Howards private email, I couldn't
email him personally. Second, I regret my comments in
a huge way. I had no business reacting to his post
like that. I took his comments personally and felt as though he
was calling me foolish for being in the way. So Howard, I am deeply sorry for reacting the way I did to your post. I really shouldn't have said what I said. My dad did raise me the right
way. It's not his fault I open my mouth before I think. And to the rest of ridecamp, I apologize for you being exposed to reading my harsh words.

Going back to lurking forever! Cate
