  Long time since I posted here.

 As each new step of progress comes to the internet. FA or Facebook, twitter, or what ever happens that is the new kind of blog the fandom spreads further outwards and we slowly distance ourselves.

I use mostly Facebook now as that seems where most of the furries I know hang out.  I will not say Furries Friends, as that is an era that seems to have passed.  Furs seem to have moved on to new friends.  I really cannot tell who is close anymore.  I work a lot of conventions, I do.  I run the variety show there ,  The Furry Drama Show.  I thought that was my way of contributing back to the fandom and maybe reaching more furs like myself that are performers in suit.  That does seem to work fairly well.  at least.

My hightlights this year were surviving winter after my heart issues.  That is pretty good I think.   I hit a lot of conventions after that.  Friends from old cons contacted me and showed their concern TFF, Fangcon, FWA, Oklacon, MFF, F3.  It makes you feel warm inside.  I guess they are the ones I move forward on and work to have more goals that will make me succeed and helping entertaining others.  Never   quit.

This was the year of a very close catastrophe and that happened on the way to Fangcon.  The RV I was driving developed some issues and I had to pull over in which case the interior filled with black smoke. I was able to get out before I inhaled anything serious and pass out.  The vehicle turned out to be on fire and soon enough it was a total loss.  (maybe I will post photos here of it) But I went forward and made the con happen in spite of all that had happen.  It was a stuggle.  I guess I am happy in knowing I can still survive in spite of what life throws at me.

Maybe 2016 will be an easier year.  I can only hope.

You doing alright? Fursuiting at all? I don't want to say I have stopped but since my suit was stolen it has put a big hamper in me wanting to suit.

Breaking the Illusion

A part of me remembers when I first suited in the fandom and I kept my secret unknown. I never minded that. As just the fun of being in suit was enough for me.

I think I would like to do that again if I got another full suit. I understand what you mean by the creepy old guy. I do get along with some of the younger furs but I think the same as you do. I guess just suit up and enjoy suiting. I get more out of suiting for other people rather then for the furries.

That is where the fun can be found.

ferret is still here too *snug*

> Furs seem to have moved on to new friends

That's why I cut down on FurCons and started attending general Science Fiction conventions again, where I can meet NEW PEOPLE in OPEN ROOM PARTIES and have decent one on one conversations.

I doubt I shall ever attend Anthrocon again. Despite all my early participation leading panels, nobody says they missed me. Like the old saying "nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded".

I don't miss AC at all for a lot of reasons. i would say hit the smaller cons as you would likely have more fun there. The attendees would appreciate you more also

Hugs to you and I hope to see you again

Happy New Year

I do miss the old days. Not many familiar faces at the last cons I went to, and nobody who wanted to hang out.

Hope you have an awesome 2016!

Hey hey there, glad to see you're still around. Can't say I've been around here as much either, but I do check it from time to time. I hope 2016 is an easier year for you filled with much happiness and good times!

For me, most of my friends have migrated over to Twitter and even more recent, the chat program Telegram. For my extreme locals, they have a facebook group simply to say where and when the next meet will be.

Twitter is fun, though sometimes it can be a little impersonal.

Anyway, Happy New Year dude! I still hope to someday meet you at a con. :)

I have gotten up North a few times. I hit FurryCon for several years and had a blast there. I will have to say some of the most fun I have had in such a long time as an attendee.

I don't know where I can get to next FWA maybe But mostly Fangcon as far East. Maybe catch you there some day.

Well, I'm pretty glad you're still around. Hopefully that doesn't change any time soon. :)
The atmosphere has definitely changed over the years. The kids are young yeah, but they're not all bad. And yeah, a lot of the old guard seems to have gone away. But I still find there's fun to be had and lots of good people to hang with, even if there's a bit of an age difference.
Besides, I've been in this thing for 26 years, and while I might not be able to hit cons much right now this fandom ain't getting rid of me. ;)

Don't close it down. It does not hurt to keep it open seeing it is free. Right?

I am looking forward to seeing you at Fangcon. Stay well okay.
