It's hard to believe that's its going to be five years since I stumbled upon this site researching my Inspiration cruise .

I know many people come and go but what ever happened to Beenie Weenie and Dave the Wave?

I was thinking the same thing a little while ago. There was also a young woman who ened up moving to England I think for work purposes. I can't recall her name, but she is another one.

If, like myself, you check this site a couple of times during the day, even though you may not have met people in person, you sure get to know them..or at least their board personas. When they do not post for awhile, you wonder.

Wait, Corona Girl is another one, speaking of Dave the Wave....I'm sure the guys will recall....

I feel sad when someone stops posting. I always think that something happened to them.

I don't know why Beenie Weenie stopped posting but she is on Facebook and posts there. Also she has a job and the kids are going to a regular school.

Facebook is getting a lot attention from cruise people these days.

Friends with BW on FB. I think DtW has a different screen name on FB so not positive he is who I think on FB.

I follow a few CMS on Facebook, but most of you are still here after all these years, and although I've met only a few of you, I feel Like I know you all so well!

A good thread. I also was wondering especially about Beenie Weenie. Maybe Todd still keeps in touch with her.

I've thought about this so many times. I know that people come and go, but I wish that they'd continue here. It makes me so sad.

I researched a cruise here about 10 years ago.
I can remember names like Cruise-a-holic, Pamda, KimJack, Thomas and Terry & Janice... among others I cant remember.
The place was hopping.

As I don't belong to Facebook; I have suffered withdrawal from the community that used to exist here. I know Tweety is still around; I also miss Y2C, DJ Bob, CarnyGirl, Theresa, Heather, and countless others. We used to fill up two hours of chat each weeknight.

Hi,
Sadly I believe that Pamda has passed away. KimJack rarely posts anymore. He is fairly active on my tiny forum posting interesting quotes in the quotes section. It seems that I have seen several recent posts from Thomas. Terry and Janice I do not remember. CruiseAholic is active lately too. Dave the wave is on Facebook.

What Laura said! Plus, I have a wonderful "rum ball" recipe that was (I think) passed from the late Pamda to many of us. Yum!

KimJack is also still around, but not actively posting here. They do post occasionally on the CruiseTalkCafe site.
