I’m moving all attention to the site from now on. Time here on WordPress has been an absolute joy, and I can never thank them enough for allowing me the space and time… and all that goes with this blog. But now that it’s all been moved and duplicated on a domain of its own, Mr. G’s is now grown up and going for independence. I’ve no intention (at present) of pulling any of the pages from this blog. I want G’s to exist and be remembered, and I want it to be introduced to a great many who never had the chance to be a part of our “family” and those who today, have NO clue about what we are and were all about.
Sadly, SO sadly, today, the politics involved are nothing short of repulsive. G’s was, most likely, the last of the era where there actually was something we could be “proud” of, and we celebrated, every chance we had, that our lives were becoming “common”, and that we were being allowed to live them, in harmony with our neighbours… and families.
I hope G’s serves as a teacher to those who have little-to-no sense, common or other-wise, who, for some reason, believe that they have a “right”, and “entitlement” to be “proud”, not matter what they do to themselves and/or others. We, my generation, worked hard and fought hard, civilly and legally, for the rights of those today to be the idiots, morons and embarrassments that they are. Visiting G’s here, now, is a lesson, an example, a paradigm… that will, in all likelihood, be lost on today’s generation. But it will stay… where-ever it might find a place. (They tried to burn it to the ground in 1974 and, as for the actual place, they succeeded. BUT… here it is, today… in another incarnation… and so long as I draw breath… here it will stay.
But please come by the .com site. And note that there’s an invitation to a whole new venue on the “Sojourners” page! If nothing else, stop by THERE and give it all a try! (If you DO… don’t forget to look us up and post to your heart’s content!)
See you “out there”… I hope…
MUCH Love and thanks to you all.
