The new, 2-post DG isn't a sock puppet account and I won't be using it. If there's a way of deleting it, someone let me know.

It's hard enough being DG with one identity, let alone two!
If you register a third account - say, Gee Digital - the admins would probably get suspicious.
If you wanna get rid of the new, two post DG, you could notify them and ask nicely. Maybe by using the red exclamation point icon.

I've just given that a try. Let's hope they do - I only want to be me.

Welcome back. If you don't want to ski but have snow you might try snowshoeing, or even hiking in the snow. It's fun!

Welcome back! Us ambulatory patients have been relegated to the newfangled "Pills & Ills" subforum. Once I'm out from under my rock, I look forward to seeing more of your enjoyable posts.

Welcome back, DG. I certainly remember you. (I am still in north coastal San Diego County, with no plans to move anywhere until the coroner carries me out on a stretcher.)

I remember you too! Good to see another familiar name. Enjoy San Diego - I don't miss it as much as I thought I might, but I was so ready for a change of scenery.

Were you, @digitalG, also known as the Deege?

Hi again, Deege,

FYA, to refresh your memory, I came upon this post from 2015 on the thread, "Bike Riding vs Cycling"

I still have, but won't be riding Mrs. Jones for a while. Gonna stick with Clementine, the Orange Aphrodite. Just got her back from the shop with a full tune-up and she looks and feels brand new! Meantime, Mrs. Jones will be garaged for another day.
