Does anyone know what happened to Doghead

Postby wrcstl » Fri Aug 04, 2006 3:28 pm

I never post on WT but occasionally check for interesting TNs as they are my reality check for NYC Loire whites. Have not seen or heard anything from Robert Callahan? Thought he had some medical problems in the past but has he dissapeared?

Walt: Excuse me, but it seems a little curious that you would ask here what is happening to someone on another site. Wouldn't it make more sense to ask on the other site, where the person is question resides and is a known member of the community?

Hoke,
Didn't mean to upset anyone but I am not registerd on WT and only peak at TNs occasionally. I was just curious and thought someone here who cross posts might. know.

Oh, I'm not upset, Walt. Not at all.

I really meant I thought it was curious, thassall.

Seemed appropriate to go to the place he founded, where there are people who know him, to get the info.

Doesn't take any effort to "register", really.

My understanding is that Robert C. continues to battle with serious illness (es) and that he has very little ability to participate in his wine board (or perhaps has very little interest in engagement because of how lousy he feels).

But he is still around. As in still here. Or there. Hasn't shuffled off the mortal coil.

I was curious as well, and appreciate the info.

The reason for asking here rather than there is that on WT you will not get anything remotely close to an answer. You might get some sort of offhanded reference to drinking Muscadet while admiring yak trains in the Himlayas, but nothing on Robert.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.

David,
That is why I am not registered or post on WT. Good people but hard to get straight answers. I was interested because I respect Callhan's palate and WT is the place to get info on Loire whites plus a lot of other off-beat wines.
