BYE BYE EVERYBODY

I came on here (someone pass me a cloth) about 1997. I've had a lovely time I've had some great arguments with the Great Jake and GOAT Some fabulous laughs...... Time to say good bye to everyone and good luck.
I always value Pilots wit and input

No need to make any hard and fast decisions to leave, memor. Just be like me and pop in occasionally to keep in touch. Jake and Goat aren't around any more but there are other people.

As you say Memor, we have had a lot of laughs and 'chewed a lot of fat' over the years and it has been fun. Death has taken a few notables out such as 'Jarra Pete' and 'Daddy O', and you could always rely on Global to keep the number of posts up and give us the odd scripture lesson. Global will now either know whether his faith was justified in which case he will be very happy, or have found that he had got it wrong, in which case he won't be any less happy. :D

All the old controversial subjects that would get a good argument going and sometimes provoke a response from the Moderator are still with us, but either political correctness or lethargy have killed off the desire to get into a scrap - and let's face it, it was the scraps that produced the biggest number of posts. Probably sometimes comments became a bit too personal and hurtful and drove some away, but hey, that's life.

President Trump is paying a State Visit to the UK over the next few days and all manner of people are lining up to cause as much trouble as possible - maybe he'll get people reaching for their keyboards. As Sherri says Memor, don't say goodbye just yet, we are a small but happy band and we would like to keep you as part of it.

Memor why go?
You turning off the internet altogether?
When I came on here in 2003
I used to enjoy your family stories ... very funny
I only pop in now and then
and from what I've seen you were doing the same
In fact I think you already had a long stint of absence
Official departures seem to sound like something has upset you?
Anyways ... cheers and happy retirement
I think I'll be doing the same very soon
Been off work since February with lower back problems.
Nappies & Politicians should be changed often. Both for the same reason.
I don't have an attitude I have a personality you can't handle.

Hey Memor, instead of leaving, just take time out.

Its been a long while since I visited this site and was disappointed to read you were leaving.
I always enjoyed your posts on Mortimer Rd school as they brought back many memories both good and bad.
All the best Memor and take care.

How quiet the site has gone. Topics have quite a number of 'views' listed, but very few comments. Does that mean it is just a handful of people keep returning to see if there is still life out there?

There is plenty going on in the world so no lack of topics. Just about everyone I encounter these days seems to be wandering about, staring at their phones almost oblivious to the world around them. I only have a £9 pay as you go phone and so I'm not sure what it is they are all doing. I think I must have become a living fossil. :D
