I Will Be Away For Awhile...

Re: I Will Be Away For Awhile...

My wife and I will be going away for a trip. While we are gone, I have asked mofome to be in charge of the day to day operations of EOG....

I know it's the start of the slow season for many, including Yours Truly...

I won't be posting while we are gone...

It seems like EOG keeps getting better each day with so many new posters adding to the wealth of information that we already have from our old-timers..

It's nice to know I can leave with people like Blondie, Ballwonder, Jimmy Hoffa, and diogee, amongst others to help out...

I feel like this place has always been a second home for me because of ALL OF YOU...

Thanks from the bottom of my heart....

I am grateful to be a part of this Family and for all the support,

P.S.

1 down and 2 to go baby...

Now let's win the remaining 2 Baseball games I gave out on WW, so I can start out with a nice winning record in Baseball!!

Ken
After rereading this, its almost as if he had a premonition.

We will all miss you Shrink.

The first thing I thought of when I read they had passed was that he had taken the time to write a very detailed post about 'going away' and how mo was in charge a few days earlier. Re-reading it, it really seems as though he knew he wasn't coming back..Ken often traveled and I don't remember he ever making a heartfelt post such as that before any other trips. I really hope I'm reading into this too much and it is just coincidence. No matter what happened, I feel horrible about this whole thing. I guess I shouldn't really even have speculated about this but the circumstances around this are really bothering me. :(

You're not the only one thinking along this same line Joey.

He knew something that makes me think something happen like the FBI got him and he had to make a deal and stay away!!! dont know what would be worst Jail or Dead....he put what he was doing on a forum...

just something I cant get out of my mind....I got close to Ken this past year all my love goes out to his family and love ones!

I guess killing yourself isn't as bad as it used to be. Hell I would never admit someone I knew (familiy) killed themselves if I didn't have to.

But then again if someone I knew killed themselves AND MY MOTHER I would fucking kill them!

I disagree Jersey..

Hindsight is always 20/20.. I think people are reading too much into that post, he uses the word "baby" and talks about "starting" the season off good in baseball..

1 down and 2 to go baby...

Re: I Will Be Away For Awhile...

Of course he had a premonition gyno.wtf???

He killed himself - he wasnt killed in some freak accident.

You think he just woke up one day with his wife and decided???

Re: I Will Be Away For Awhile...

WTF??? Are you serious???

One post later he talks about how he's going to Duck, North Carolina.. Nobody here knows exactly what conspired, I'm just saying that post is not necessarily a goodbye post.. Hindsight is 20/20

Re: I Will Be Away For Awhile...

I think I've read similar posts from Ken when he would be going on vacation to Costa Rica or somewhere, and this one did not seem out of place to me. Just my .02.

Shrink always vacationed a lot during baseball season, this time of year was his down time.. He even mentioned he owed his wife a vacation in a post soon after...

So weird, this situation..

No worries at all gyno..

It was going to be a temporary page however with a lot of people at work I asked that it be kept on the site for a while...

Cool, sorry blondie I didn't know.. I thought the page was great and I wanted to make sure I didn't lose it in case it was only a temporary page.

Thanks a lot..

Absolutely agree. You can tell a lot about someone in how they respond in a situation such as this. She (and others) came through with flying colors. Props.
