    Being a bit quiet lately and a pointless thread

    A pointless thread really but it seems a little quiet lately onTD

    I guess we are all busy in our own lives, G4 with Noy in town searching for the right fish sauce, Wabbits and his new life in WA, Condo trying to land the mining gig, PBB plotting his next visa move, the Kaptin now a married man, DP what part of the world are you in now?, JC are you ok?, VG you must be getting close now, AM what was the age difference again ? 55555, who else i have missed, Annie, Mr & Mrs M, Mr C, Contrarian, Jonty,Gazmac, Jaffaman, Rockitt whatever happened to RocknRoll ??

    Warning Soppy Moment Ahead: This has become a very small but tight knit forum with BM's helping each other for all different reasons, almost like a 2nd family

    Just wondering if i can get a quick checkin from everyone for the fun of it

    ohh only 4 members online .....sighhhhhh,,, [SIZE="4"]HELLOOOOOOO [/SIZE][SIZE="3"]Hello[/SIZE] [SIZE="2"]Helllo[/SIZE] [SIZE="1"]hello[/SIZE]

    Like i said .....a thread with not much purpose really

    Also Quiksilva and Eamonn (who has been very quiet, but expected 555).

    Yes Sydney it has slowed down , but after an initial burst of stories, etc I always thought it would level out a bit, but the last few months has quietend down some. But what's been written has been good, informative, I think the Visa post is upto 19 pages, and with the Visa goal post been moved again I can see lots been written on this iover the next three months.

    Must be doing something right, noticed over yonder that they are still having a snipe when someone posts in "Relationships", that it would be better here 555

    Well I've been motivated... repossessed my ex-wife's car not long ago and i've been polishing it like a mofo!
    Asked Thip to speak to Buddha (as she's at the Wat ATM) about selling the car this weekend..... as soon as it sells I'm off to BKK!!!
    So all BM's out there, turn to your Buddha shelf and put in a good word for me please

    Hi Sydney,
    I have had my hands full and thought twice about posting, but as you say a small family it has become.
    Mrs C was taken ill suddenly yesterday and was admitted to St John of God ED last night in great pain.
    Right now she is having an operation to remove her gall bladder.
    I am beside myself hoping and praying it all goes well.
    We will know in a few hours time.
    Have been on the phone to family in Thailand as well as friends locally.
    Will keep in touch.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    Changone,
    Give my best wishe's to Mrs C. You must be in need of a Drink or three by now. Gall bladder's and stones are no fun.

    Sydney,
    I have been around, reading and most of the other BN's have things covered, so I haven't worried about repeating stuff.

    I think it qill comw in spurts and spasim's from now on, when some one new joins, and continue's to contribute, we will see another TR or question, that will then invoke, responses from everyone.

    Hows the new business venture coming?

    I keep checking in here. Lots of activity going on which is a bit unusual really. First team of the year, then my birthday. Some big family celebrations followed with a big anniversary and birthday. (In laws) The icing on the cake came when our eldest daughter passed her driving test. First test and only 4 minors on her pass sheet. Trouble is, now our car keeps dissapearing.
    Plus it's English summer and yes it's been ok so far. Some good weather, so we often have a walk to our local for a beer.

    Hope Mrs C has a speedy recovery, our best wishes come to her and you Mr C.

    Bring back DP safe n sound. We miss him!! 55555

    I'm still here and enjoying this forum. Off sick at the mo with 'tennis elbow'. ( nothing to do with Wimbledon). 555. Bladdy painful at times, but I can still manage to lift a pint or two.

    I am still alive but have Noy to take care of. I have still been online doing my bits and pieces. I have told Noy that it is like a second job. As a Moderator I feel I have a duty of care to check all posts for Spam and what not. I do not spend as much time on the Forum these days as I have Noy to look after as well. I would have to agree with Sydney in the way that we are all family here and I am very happy with the way things are going. I did spread the word in LOS on the recent trip so in good time could have a few more members join up.

    C1 I wish you and your wife the best in the coming days and hope all is well.

    First off, I wish all the best for Mrs. C, and hope the surgery and recovery goes very well for her. Stressful time for you both, I'm sure, and I'll be praying it all works out.

    I'm now 10 days away what could be one of the best trips of my life, if all works out as planned. Nui is meeting me at the airport (hopefully she dosn't get lost trying to find me! 555) and we're off from there. The last few days I've been working down the checklist of things to do, and items to purchase. Got my phone unlocked, credit card companies notified I'd be out of county and using the cards, same with the bank regarding the debit card, got my traveller's cheques (they only had 100's so I've got a stack!! 555), picked up small things I missed on the last trip like a travel soap dish, toothbrush holder, etc. Still want to pick up some small things for Nui ... the Thai owner of the Thai Bistro that opened close to where I live strongly suggested buying some quality makeup for her from Canada, as she said the quality is so much better then can be purchased in LOS ... and also need to grab some extras for my camera, like backup battery, new travel tripod, better case, etc. ... all things I regretted not having on the last trip. I only have two days off work before I leave, and I'll be trying to maximize them to get most stuff done that still needs to be done. I talk to Nui about every other day .. LD to LOS from Canada is only 5 cents a minute with the plan I have, so its no cost, and its fun to hear the excitement in her voice as the time get closer.

    Other then that, I'm just counting the days ... which seem to be taking forever, on the one hand ... and seem to be flying by when I look at what I want to do before I go.

    Great thread idea, btw, Sydney!

    We are a tight crew in many ways, the only thing for me is work...gets in the way at the mo. Have been enjoying life my wife our new life together.

    I have stepped back a little in posting as i felt there were conversations going on that did not need my input.

    I love some of the stories that pop up out of the blue (Jontymate) one that is of late.

    I for my part love this forum (soppy) as the stories and the guys have brung me cheer when things looked dark....Waiting with no TG.

    I believe this is how PI started but they had....have a slightly diff focus.

    This forum was started with a very long term goal to be a catch up keep up tool for many of us that will end up in LOS and i know the core will grow over time.

    why thank you PBB...very kind of you..5555

    Some school of thought is to always keep the same same Avatar so other BM's can always recognize you......screw that i say.....i like to mix it up a bit otherwise i get bored looking at the same pic.......although if i was to be competly honest on this one i really changed becuase JK threatened to kill me if i didn't change it becuase she hated the pic of her so much. ...55555 i just kept telling her " yeah but my dog looks great " ....55555

    Don't you reckon my dog looks great ??...5555

    Note to self: don't show this post to JK!!
