Oldie back after a LONG break!

Post by Frannie » Fri Aug 14, 2020 3:23 pm

Well, hello everyone!

I hope some of you remember me, lol, I was a member here YEARS ago, I can’t even remember why I stopped posting here, it’s been that long. But I’m back. Thanks to my friend Patina, I decided to come back. 😊

For those that don’t know me, I’m Frannie. I’m originally from Canada’s East Coast, Newfoundland and Labrador. I currently live in Montreal. I’ve been a “Bonanza” fan since I was 14; I’m 48 now. I was born 11 days before we lost Dan. And well, I’ve always been a Hoss gal from the moment I saw him.

I live alone, me and my 9.5 year old kitty, KP. This pandemic has been a bit difficult on me as my family lives on the East Coast, both parents are gone, and so are some family members. This past while I’ve been watching episodes, especially ones with Hoss. He helped me through a LOT while I was growing up, and he isn’t letting me down now.

I hope everyone is well! There’s been a few other changes in my life since I was last here, but otherwise, things are okay, considering.

Take care, and yes, I WILL be back!

:hoss
