What Are You Doing On Bastille Day?

Post by Donald Isler » Thu Sep 19, 2019 9:25 am

The question above was always posted shortly before July 14th by our late, lamented friend, Ralph Stein, to remind us of his upcoming birthday. After Ralph died, in 2012, I sometimes posted the question around that date, and the person who always knew to whom and to what I was referring was our other friend, John Brosseau, aka JBuck. One of the most interesting, knowledgeable, and passionate personalities on this board, it was a real loss when John B passed away at the beginning of this year. So I am glad to remember him, his personality, humor, and contributions on what would have been his 65th birthday.

Thank-you, Don. JohnB was invariably kind to me as well.

I often think of John Brosseau, Ralph Stein, Werner Isler, Ward Botsford (CMG's founder), and so many others than have gone to the Great Beyond since the inception of CMG. They are greatly missed.
