We Might Know Each Other If You Know Some Of These

    I'm not about to give away where I live or where I used to live, but if you know any of these clusters of people, we might have crossed paths at one point. (I have added a few "dummy" names to keep it tough.) Most, but not all, of these "real" names are elders.

    1) Wicks, Anderson, Hughes, Stafford, Adams

    2) Appleby, Nelson, Bondergaard, Wallace, Gerow

    3) Harp, Jackson, Weller, Offermann, Sand

    4) O'Brien, Kopelchak, Brice, Hamor, Hendry

    5) Boyles, Fournier, Whittingham, Munce, Fry

    6) Vincent, Kepler, Knoebel, Bowley, Mize

    I'm just curious to know if anybody I've crossed paths with is on this site.

    I know Barbara Anderson.
    I have eaten at Applebee's
    I have been in sand.
    I like to fry stuff.
    I got nothing on Number 6.

    I guess I don't know you. You are not in Chicago.

    Kepler, wasn't he the one that defined the planetary motions or was he the one that said the earth was the center of the universe. Anyway, before my time.

  • Phizzy

    I have not met any of these people to my knowledge, but then, there is a World beyond the USA, and I live in that World, with an outward looking world-view.

    Don't be so parochial.

    Yes, Phizzy, I can sometimes tell immediately that the poster must be from the UK, Canada, Australia, etc., because the last names are not usual to my area. Yes, though the WTS is really small, it is impossible for jws to know many individual jws outside their circuit/regional area. The WTS likes it that way.

    There as been a list of COs that have served over the years on JWN, and some of the names I recognized because that had served in our area of the 50 years I have been associated with the WTS.

    So a real answer from me, I don't recognize them at all because I am not or have ever been from the area these people seem to be from. I wish I could provide, but this time Blondie does not know.

    None of 'em ring any bells.

    A fellow (semi-)fader lives in the same town as me and we're friends, though.

    When I was a kid we had a COnamed. Stepawoy, don’t know if I spelled it correctly. He was an asshole, probably dead now

  • dropoffyourkeylee

    The OP is most likely not from the U S.
