I knew he hadn't posted in forever-but when I checked I found out he last posted in August!What has happened to my fave Graf fan on this site?
Thought this forum would be the best place to ask the question.. Is anyone in touch with him? Is he ok healthwise?
If anyone has an update on Alfa I'd be keen to hear it?
Yes, and thanks for the concern. For a little update, I went through the whole SSI fiasco around last September, while simultaneously getting my VA status upgraded. Everything has worked out, and I'm once again on an even keel (of sorts) both spiritually and mentally. Also went through my very first serious relationship during this time (at 46, I made it pretty far), and I'm even prouder to say I made it through the end of it unscathed, save for a couple blue weeks. I even have my friend Mark trying to get me back out onto the tennis court, and I've actually unzipped the racquet bag and held the grip for the first time in about a year. Time to shake off the rust, put the TV remote down and stand up and move again. It's going to feel strange, but good.Much like the groundhog announcing springtime, alfa has popped his head up to look around BFTP!!! :lol:
did you know everyone was worried about you??? :fiery::hearts:
There's hope for you yet then! Resist the dark side of the force Luke!Hey Alfa, when you have time to start posting again, we need you in the Steffi thread. I've enjoyed your past post there. I'm just starting to really love Graf and her game, so I look forward to more of your thoughts.
Glad you're doing a-okay.
In answer to the first question, yes, very cute and it came with a big ego. The package was pretty big too:lol:. Unfortunately, I'm a Scorpio and have always been in charge of my life, and admittedly, a bit of a control freak. He was just as hard headed and our normal mode of communication was to bring up something we knew the other would disagree with just to start a conversation. I'm happy to have lived through it, and the experience has changed me in ways I never would've expected.Welcome back, hon!!! Let's pm later. But for the time being, there are 2 important questions:
(1) Was your guy cute?
(2) Do you think Venus Williams is "passed" her peak and will not win another grand slam?
