Kim in Ohio: Oh and Marty you could email me too.
OhioAngel: Marty1fan, it's an e-mail mailing list where we post messages and talk about Marty.
Margie/MA: A mailing list is where you subscribe and then send messages to one address. It goes automatically to everyone signed up. We talk about Marty, the band, crew, schedule, concerts.
smartybell: Kim in Ohio here is my email
OhioAngel: Smartybell, that's it!
Margie/MA: Yes, Smartybell, you're on the mailing list.
Marty1fan: Thanks for the info, can Marty e-mail us personnally, I would like that.
smartybell: Hey all of us Ohio crew could take a road trip
bufccmill: sounds good Mart2go
Kim in Ohio: i think i'm on

smartybell: I wish the girl who took pictures of Myracal and Steve would send us a copy of the picture
Margie/MA: I doubt if Marty will be e-mailing anyone personally, but that's not why we're on the mailing list. It's just a place for his fans to get together and talk.
MaryR.: I'm sure Marty computer skills are as good as his British accent (in Knoxville).
smartybell: Myracal wanted to kidnap Steve it was cute
Marty1fan: I must have been under the wrong impression that Marty was going to chat in here tonight.
OhioAngel: I don't think Marty would have time to e-mail all his fans, he'd never get anything else done! :)
Marty2go: Hey, Marty1fan, I think I'm going to go! Talk at you later!! Marty, I love you, man, and I hope this birthday is the best ever. Chow!
Margie/MA: No, as far as I know Marty doesn't even know how to use a computer.
SherryM: Nobody ever said Marty was going to be part of this BD chat.
Marty1fan: It's a nice thought, though
Kim in Ohio: i'm about an hour and half south of canton. we will have to stay in touch.
OhioAngel: No, it's just a way for the fans to get together and celebrate his birthday.

OhioAngel: Yes, it was raining, but Marty didn't care!
Marty1fan: When do most of you chat in the room during the week, because when I come in there is nobody to be found.
Margie/MA: I was supposed to be at Old Washington, remember Mel? Judy couldn't go, and I couldn't drive that far alone.
SherryM: Oh yes, Mary R's story is quite cute.
marie: MaryR, accidentally?!?!?!?
LaDonna: MaryR did you follow him in!!!
OhioAngel: I remember, Margie. Fortunately, you came the next week for the Delaware show, though.
opishi: Ok lets hear it Mary?
MaryR.: Now, before you get too excited, I was waiting on my boyfriend.
SherryM: Actually, there's no special set time to chat. But, we'll do this more often.
Kim in Ohio: It didn't matter to me that it was raining but it took a toll on the picture that i had him sign.
OhioAngel: Suggest a time and I'm sure Sherry will put it up on the site to get people to come in.
lethlwpn: PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
opishi: You mean you don't hang around the men's room as a usual thing??? LOL
Margie/MA: I've drowned but good a couple of times for Marty. I won't do it for anyone else, but I'll sit in the rain for him.
smartybell: Miss Loretta is coming on TNN
Marty1fan: Sounds good, especially to have a set time like this chat was, then we can all make it a point to chat about Marty.
SherryM: Megan got a chat up at the last minute and it was a blast.
Kim in Ohio: if there was a set time for a chat i would be here.
Margie/MA: It needs to be earlier in the day, or on a weekend, for Megan to join in now that school's going again. She was here early and had to sign off before 9:00.
opishi: Those are the most fun, I remember a chat some friends and I had with Steve on AOL once, it was great
opishi: Just spur of the moment
SherryM: It would be neat to set up something for Wednesday at 9 ET every week.
Marty1fan: Saturday nights are good for me for chatting
Margie/MA: I might even make the drive in to Worcester (20 miles, my computer is at work) to talk about Marty. :)
opishi: Wed night is good for me
OhioAngel: It would be nice to have a few, all at different times, so that people in different time zones can make it.
Marty1fan: I usually work on Wednesdays, but I took this night off because it was special, Marty's B-day
SherryM: Margie, we've got to get you a computer!!!
Margie/MA: 9:00 is a long time for me to hang around here, waiting. I get off work at 5:00.
OhioAngel: Anybody who's on the mailing list can always suggest a time there and work it out with other people!
SherryM: I guess I need to check my own chat room out more often. I just missed someone this morning my seconds.
Kim in Ohio: wed at 9:00pm sounds good to me.
SherryM: Oops, that's BY seconds!!!
smartybell: My Hubby builds puters when he is not playing music
OhioAngel: Margie, you've gone over and above the call of duty!
SherryM: Indeed you have, it's 10 p.m. your time. Might as well sleep on the desk.
opishi: Yes you have Margie
MStuartfan: Am I the only one here?
OhioAngel: Anybody who's still here, say your birthday greetings for Marty!
SherryM: Jana, are you no longer on AOL?
Marty1fan: Hey it was great talking to everyone! Hope you have a wonderful evening. Happy Birthday to Marty!!!
smartybell: Happy Birthday Marty!

SherryM: Good night, Mel. Thanks for your help! I appreciate it more than you know.
Sunshine: Sherry got to go - Thanx for the fun this evening - give Marty a kiss n hug for me when you see him. I gave him one for you -- honest. I'll send you pics from the Cowboys shows.
smartybell: Oh that is not the problem
SherryM: Thanks Helene--your review was super!
Sheila: Good night all
SherryM: Helene, join the mailing list--it's a lot of fun and you can keep up with the latest on Marty.
smartybell: Sherry will they let my little girl in?
opishi: Good night Helene your review was great
Margie/MA: Hey, Marie has a message posted to the list already! I still use an old computer for e-mail, so I have that on, too.
SherryM: Goodnight Sheila! Thanks for stopping by!
SherryM: Toni, I'm sure there isn't a problem. Is your child in a wheelchair? You sit at tables in Owensboro.
Margie/MA: Toni, I don't think it's a bar show, but call them and ask. It's a hotel so they're probably open 24 hours, 800-626-1936.
Margie/MA: Goodnight Sheila and Helene!
smartybell: No she is ambulatory, she had deformed ankles and has trouble in crowds, she is 5 years old and weighs 35 pounds.
SherryM: Oh yes, kids are allowed at the shows in Owensboro!
smartybell: We are working With the Shriners to get her ankles fixed
Jodee: I'm back
MaryR.: Good night everybody, it's been fun.
smartybell: She loves to dance and b-bop to Marty but she hurts all night
opishi: Welcome back Jodee
smartybell: Welcome back Jodee
Margie/MA: Hi Jodee. Don't you hate it when your computer does that? This one gives me lots of trouble.
Sunshine: Sherry, I would like to join the mailing list as long as I can figure out the technicalities- Ill try tomorrow. Thanx.
SherryM: As long as Mario and I get the seats right up front :)
MaryR.: Good night everybody, it's been fun.
Jodee: How did it go?
Margie/MA: No, Toni, you don't need the membership to get tickets. That only gets you into the M-&-G!
SherryM: No you don't need to be a fan club member to sit in the VIP section. But you need your M-&-G cards to meet with Marty.
Sheila: I'm not gone yet. Jodee you are doing a great job with the fan club Thanks!
Margie/MA: It went pretty good, Jodee. There were a lot of people, it got pretty confusing at times, but it was fun.
smartybell: I will get our renewals in as soon as possible. It took forever to get my original membership
opishi: Hey Jodee, do you know how many members are in the FC, just curious
SherryM: Margie, you and I are on the same wavelength here. Jodee, the chat was a blast! Between Mel and me, we think we have it copied so everyone can read the transcript.
Margie/MA: Between Mel and Sherry, they were saving everything that got said and will post a transcript of the chat on Sherry's site. You'll be able to see what happened.
Jodee: I've already upgraded my memory once and I'm waiting for one now to come in the mail to upgrade to the fullest.
opishi: It has been fun!
Margie/MA: I hope the fan club membership is going up. I have a friend who is going to renew, and I almost have another friend at work talked into joining. :)
SherryM: Keep 'em coming, Margie.
smartybell: hubby is going to be on my renewal
MaryR.: I'm not gone..just haven't been able to do anything. Just thought I'd get that in before everyone left.
Jodee: This is too confusing for me.
opishi: How much memory do you have on your computer Jodee?
Jodee: I'm having a hard time thinking tonight without having to stay in touch with several conversations
Margie/MA: Jodee, I want to thank you again for sending my renewal out on faith. It took my check almost three weeks to get there!
SherryM: Jodee, people are answering previous questions and things aren't getting posted in order. Typical of my life--confusing!
opishi: It just takes some getting use to
SherryM: I have 80 MB of RAM and my computer still has problems.
Tms: hecko
MaryR.: Do we know how many memberships there are now?
opishi: Really? wow it shouldn't
SherryM: Okay, who's Tms????
Tms: hecko marty fans
SherryM: Hecko tms.
Margie/MA: Hi, Tms, whoever you are!
Jodee: Hi Mary. I thought you were gone.
opishi: Hi TMS

Tms: when i try to say hecko it shows up different
SherryM: Jodee, we still want to know....are the numbers going UP in the fan club???
opishi: Yes, it did for me too TMS, I'm not sure what the problem is
Margie/MA: Someone was saying that earlier, too!
Jodee: I have 64MB now (or 48, I can't rember) but am upgrading to 128
Tms: ok every thing i type comes out alright but the other word for hi
SherryM: What problem? Everything's fine on MY end.
