Middle of Gnomewhere



OK so it has been about 4 years since I left TSO and I was bored so I googled TSO and Middle of Gnomewhere and what do you know it brought me HERE! My husband (RobRoy) and I played from Beta up till about 2004. Our first house was Skills N Thrills.. it was one of the first houses in Interhogan when the game went live and it was featured on Gamespot (Pics of it here) http://www.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/sims...&om_clk=gsimage&tag=images;header;more&page=1

Then we opened a little house called Middle of Gnomewhere... opened a little radio station called KROC then Radio-Phoenix. We had some of the best times of our lives there. Saturday nights Drunken Gnome Night!! Anyone remember that? I know we had great roomies... some of whom I remember (SweetAnita who is now my sister in law lol) and some I don't (Antonio Scarbeti lol) but we had a great time and they got me through one of the most difficult times of my life, the death of my mom.

If any of you know me or my hubby please feel free to drop me a line on here or if you play WoW you will find me in Quel' Dorei as SapphyreVox or Alleeya. Until then this is Sapphy signing off one last time with a great big

I been trying to remember why it all sounded familiar....this brings it all back to me!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. :)


Even though I didn't really hang out in IH all that much during the early days, I still distinctly remember RobRoy and Sapphyre, and Skills n' Thrills.

Wow, it's so good to see you again, even under these circumstances!


Just so you are all aware. A name that popped up on the Sim Awards a few times was Moose Charming. His name was very appropriate as he could be VERY charming and always the gentleman. Sadly Moose Charming passed away irl a few years ago. He is sorely missed ~Sapphy

Wyld Cherry

Robroy, why does that name sound formilure (sorry for the misspell lol tired). Did you two work for Fueled Radio or amd I thinking of a different robroy LoL

If so, sorry I do apologize lOl


Well we started out with a brief stint on KSIM.... then we branched out on our own and founded KROC which later became Radio-Phoenix. But no we never were on Fueled at all ~ Sapphy
