Maybe I have the wrong approach to how to post on a forum.

   When I am somewhere with friends, such as having a punt or a feed, you say things that if you say the same on a forum people take offence.
  I know people of all colours and types and say things that you can say to friends and they don't take offence but have a shot at someone on the forum and people like Chuggers step in to chastise.

  I think I got a warning for calling someone a dirty old man and a few people were horrified.  Hello. Get out in the real world instead of hiding in your study behind a keyboard and see what normal people say. .
   I've met some nice people on this forum that I like a laugh with but there are a couple that I just laugh at.

When I go for a walk each day I always throw a dollar in my pocket and stop at the club or agency and have these type of bets.  After awhile I take any winning tickets and cash them and usually enough to buy us a meal at one of the clubs.

   Things we do when we have time on our hands.

Yes--in hindsight--I should butt out--if it was during the day--you would not heard from me--just another pisshead rant late at night.

I don't mind mate.  Maybe I should pull my head in and remember that I'm a forum and that it is different to how you talk to your mates.

  With the blokes that I meet with , the only thing that you dont have a shot at is anyone's family.

At my age and being ex army  I do see a lot of friends dying far to early.  Some die at their own hand and others die thru various reasons but it is always hard to see them go.
    With all that I have never seen a more dignified lady than our great friend and neighbour as she battles her last days.
     She was in the Mater last week when they told her she wouldn't see the week out.   She really didn't like it in their and asked could she come home for her last days.
    She sent her husband over before to see if we could go and see her as she feels it is nearly time.
  She has her family from all over with her and even though she is fighting a losing battle she just won't give up.  She just told my wife that she thought she was gone last night but she heard her 8 week year old grandson getting fed so hung on that bit longer.
   She only just brought this new fancy electronic loungechair and is sitting in that till she goes. Her husband brings a mattress out at night and sleeps beside her.  They have been married for the same time as us(43 yrs) and are just so close.
   One good thing is she in no pain and is just so happy to have her grandkids around.

    I must mention how great the Logan Hospital have been in that they check on her all the time and say there is a bed there for her if she needs it.

   When you meet people like this you feel so honoured and all our problems aren't worth worrying about.

Spot on Gratlog. It is all to easy to get caught up in day to day worries and forget the bigger picture. Thanks for the reminder  emthup

Been fun on here but like a lot of others I'm moving on.

     A few of the other x-members and myself keep in touch by email and phone and if for any reason you need to contact me you can get me at gratlog@hotmail.com.
 I don't mind giving you a phone number of a spare phone that I have as I feel I might owe someone a prize for a comp and if that is the case I'll fix it up.

    Thanks Magic.  Been good fun but please delete my account and make it for good this time  :lol:   :lol:

Nah, I reckon he is gone for good.  Certainly more peaceful in here.
