She hasn't logged in since the 25th! :shock:

Until she does, we'll just have to keep the party going :happy-partydance:

In behalf of the Book and Reading Discussion Forums I have taken upon myself the responsibility of organizing a search party to find our beloved Carla Hurst-Chandler. All interested parties please report with your safari gear.

Preliminary searches have thus far proved unsuccessful.

ryanj1 wrote:It’s my great pleasure to announce that the person to inherit the coveted Member of the Month laurel this month is Carla Hurst-Chandler, who has graced the forums with her easy presence and jazzy, laid-back humour since 2012. It’s difficult to encompass her contribution in only six words, but I suppose “a friendly, easy-going and familiar face” might come nearest. From fiction to music to the community forum, Carla’s easy manner pervades all and her presence is certainly felt like a ripple on the water. With her vernal outlook, probably inspired by the eclectic tonics that she frequently orders from the bar, Carla is ever in the bud of literary pursuits and always ingratiates herself into the creative writing forums where she makes an impression. Always welcoming to forum saplings and as equally generous to the mature bark, I hope that you will all share my enthusiasm and congratulate Carla on her new appointment. Good to have you around, Carla!



Thank you all so much...and I would like to thank the academy...and the doughnut shoppe down the street... 8)

You deserve it Carla. You are, and have always been, an important presence on these boards. I am personally delighted that you were chosen, especially for the month of February, thus making you everyone's Valentine! :romance-heart: *LOL*

PARTY TIME !
