Title: Am I allowed back?
Post by: Binks on March 31, 2020, 02:21:20 PM
 It's Binks here......used to be Binkie, but I had to change it to reregister. Am I perhaps permitted to return to the fold?
It's many years since I was on the forum, and a great deal has happened. I've missed it, and all the people I used to chat to.
Anybody left out there?

Welcome back Binks. It's great to hear from you again after all those years. The forum hasn't been the same without your witty contributions.

A few of the old gang are still around, and you will no doubt be hearing from some of them before long.

 Thank you Alan, (or should I say GAGLE?)  I look forward to meeting up with some old chat-mates !

Hi Binks (Binkie)

Welcome back.

You have aroused my curiosity.  Why did you need to reregister?  As far as I can see you are still on the books as Binkie.  Jane@manutd disappeared and returned after 5 years.

I'm not sure, but I think it was because my email address had changed. (My email account was hacked some time ago, and I only realised it when friends and family received mail from me saying that I was stranded in Namibia without any money !)   :D :D

If you wanted to keep your old name it would be worth asking Alan if he could fix it for you.

BINKIE!!!  WELCOME BACK!!!  I am still here, although I think the other hags have drifted off into obscurity ... no doubt otherwise engaged in hideous deeds!  Let's chat soon - the Forum was starting to become rather serious (with exceptions, of course, Pen, Jack etc) and I have missed our lighthearted banter.  Lovely to see/hear from you again. LL  >:D

   Thanks, Pat - good to be back, even if surrounded by doom, gloom and viruses !

 I'm in Brisbane, Queensland, Hobbit.
Hello Linda, me ol' mate !  How are you these days?
Title: Re: Am I allowed back?
Post by: Binks on April 01, 2020, 09:03:41 AM
 So much has happened in the last few years.....lost both my parents, my younger brother and then my husband, so I haven't been feeling much like socialising. Now, however, I'm fighting fit and raring to go.  Well, I can't actually go anywhere, thanks to Covid19, but I would if I could.

Binks I'm very sorry for all those losses of people so close to you. Chihuahua will help keep your mind active during the enforced isolation. It's great to see another Queenslander participating in the forum - it'll help balance the discussions!

Thank you, Jacki.......you're right - Chi is wonderful exercise for the brain, isn't it? My little grey cells need all the stimulus they can get!

Thought you'd forgotten me, Binkie!  I am sorry you have had such a very rough time.  Little wonder you have not felt like socialising.  I hope your grey cells will soon be stimulated and we can share in your knowledge and wit again.  >:D

Thanks, Lovely Linda ! It's starting to feel like old times, though I see that T and BBB have deserted us somewhere along the way.
What hag-ridden adventures we had !
Title: Re: Am I allowed back?
Post by: Linda on April 01, 2020, 09:07:19 PM
T and 3B have long gone, more's the pity.  Never mind, two hags are better than none!   >:D

As I remember you always used to say.....presactly!

I think it ought to be classed as a common word!!  Lord knows I use it enough!  >:D

I'm in Brisbane, Queensland, Hobbit.

Nowhere near Milton Keynes then :laugh:
I've obviously got you mixed up with somebody else!
Sorry to read about the loss of all those close to you.

Hi Binkie/Binks, some of us are still around but I tend to be on the forum more often than playing the game, and more often commenting on "words" than chatting in general.  Just a matter of how much time I have, I guess.  I'm in touch with T and BBB and they are doing fine. T let her kids out of the garden shed and they are quite grown up now - I see them on FB.

Good to see you back!

Thanks, Birdy.....it's good to be back. At least Chi helps to distract us from everything Out There beyond our little locked-up lives! I'm really glad to hear that T and BBB are doing well - please pass on my regards. What a relief to hear that the twins are finally out of the shed!
