    Darla was a cop down in Florida who was on here......oh, maybe about 5 or 6 years ago. Very friendly and stood out for having a nice system and being the second "consistently" posting woman besides our fixture, Cathy.

    Last I heard, she had roommate issues and then *poof*.

    You know, the part of Florida that consumes the state called Florida?....Yeah, that part of Florida.

    Give or take about 600 miles or so?

    I am so glad I remember things like this. It's very important to future generations. You can thank me later.

    I remember when we all had titles next to our post count and usernames. There were no avitars back then. When you got to a certain post count, you got to make up your own "title."

    Darla was great. She had an all Von Schweikert HT setup. That was some good stuff.

    You'd have helped me stalk someone back then.

    She was a bit more than her roommate........

    IIRC, toward the end, they were quite estranged and stuck living in a house together in which they were upside down on a mortgage and could not sell.
