This is the message that Julie's daughter sent me:

Hello this is Martha Vognar, Julie Vognar's daughter. I am sorry to be the bearer of sad news. Julie Vognar passed away on Monday, April 25th. She was in a comfy bed and had her needs tended to. I am sure she is in a better place.

Thanks for the memories, Fritz and Chuck.  I'm sorry to hear of Julie's passing.  I don't think I ever knew her first name, and had forgotten her screen name, but I certainly recognize her in these pictures, and remember these good times.

I can tell that she was having a lot of fun with our group.

Alan....passed away 3 years ago today.

I'm remembering him on this day.
Expressing my sadness is the hardest thing I am doing,
He still has his loving presence between us, because
a wonderful man like him, is never gone.

Still missing you....always will.   🤍

Wanting him to come back... before anyone notices
part of the world has not moved...since he left.

It is with great sadness that I have to update this list.  Cabin (Gerry) has passed away.

Cabin joined the forum in January of 2006.  He was an active poster here, frequenting The Diner, and other threads, and attended a number of the gatherings.

Gerry's first and last posts on the forum.


The "shock" of the kiss, as I see it, is also driven by one's remaining inhibitions.  For example, this past weekend,  my partner and I went to a gay campsite in central Texas which we frequent.  On Sunday morning, a group of us (3 couples) went to a nearby town (Cameron, TX) for breakfast.  As planned, after breakfast, 2 of the other guys were leaving for Austin, and as usual, there were hugs and kisses as we departed.  When we got back into my truck, we all commented how we had not even thought of our “hugs and kisses” scene we had just done in front of the local restaurant’s big picture windows.  We did not do it for shock value, but just as a matter a fact.

I’m sure there were many locals who noticed our goodbyes.  Now, this town has provided many services to the campers in the past 25 years so this would not be the first time they may have witnessed us showing our affection and friendship in this manner.  I can’t tell you what their discussions were like, but if a small town in Central Texas has so kindly looked upon us campers for so many years, more progressive cities around the country could certainly do the same.



Heck I don't even know how this place works anymore.  The link I used took me to the anniversary thread.
I thought it had taken me to the diner, thinking, sure is quiet.   lol

I finally made my way to the diner and see some are here.

People talking of snow and wrapping gift reminds me I have lots to do still.

I am just devastated at hearing this. We never met in real life, but like many others I know from here I am so happy to call him a friend.  We touched base at the end of last year when he said he and Jack had both caught Covid and were suffering from long covid.  I sent him birthday greeting in December but heard nothing.  I tried emailing last month but got no response.  Always such fun to interact with Gerry, only good memories. RIP "Cabin in the Sky".

Australian writer, Frank Moorhouse died in a Sydney hospital yesterday at the age of 83.

I first came across his writings in his four stories he described as a "discontinuous narrative', The Everlasting Secret Family and Other Secrets, about sex, tragedy, intrigue and political scandal. It was also adapted as a film in 1988. The book was republished din 2011 simply as The Everlasting Secret Family.

The handsome Mark Lee played a very young man. Among other films, he starred in Gallipoli.

Frank Moorhouse was a member of the Sydney Push, an anti-censorship movement along with writers like Germaine Greer, Clive James and Robert Hughes. They protested against right-wing politics and championed free speech and sexual liberation.

Frank Moorhouse spoke out in favour of the legslisation of homosexualty and promoted women's liberation.

He wrote about his own bisexuality and androgyny in Martini, his 2005 memoir. He said he wanted to explore "the idea of intimacy without family now that procreation isn't the only thing that gives sex meaning."

He is well known for his trilogy of novels.Grand Days (1993), Dark Palace (2000) and Cold Light (2011)with the main character Edith Campbell Berry a diplom,t who works for the League of Nations and in Canberra. He has been praised particularly, for his perceptive characterisation of women in his novels.
