Many many many years ago before Facebook, Blogger and yes even Google, I was on the web. Now it wasn't the web then, not as we know it today. It was a collection of modems in a huge bank attached to a set of servers. Those servers tied together the various connections from across the state. My “online” life started at Cupid’s Playpen BBS.
Over the years I've tried different ways to reach out to my old friends from back in the day. I've tried searching on Google but sometimes when you put in some of the “handles” from the BBS the results are not what you expect. Those that remember try searching for Magica, or Brandi Bitch… How Lodi or Blue. Not one single hit for Interlock either… BAH!
We had weekly meet ups at Pockets Billiards in Virginia Beach on Saturday nights and Friday’s was at Pinboys in Norfolk with Rock-N-Bowl. There were many parties and picnics where we met in “real life” to spend time together. Either to talk about the latest chat drama or to confront a killer in TA, we always had a great time!
A while back I found a site called BBSmates. This site listed all the different BBS from back then and I did end up finding a few of my friends. I have to say however, nothing took off like the Facebook Group that we created. After searching and finding a few old friends they each sorta rolled into place and now the memories of the old days are fresh in my head.

So much time I spent with these wonderful people. I’m not calling out names here because some may still be in the Cupid’s Closet so to those dear friends out there....
Thanks for the Memories.
Namaste & Blessed Be
