I can remember a couple or three years back saying I was holidaying in a certain spot and one of my online pals said drop in on your way for a cuppa - or did I cheekily invite myself, I cannot remember, anyhow we did and were taken out for a meal and began a friendship which is still rekindled whenever we are in those parts. This happened with two pals, you couldn't meet nicer folk, in two different parts of the country so we are always assured of a 'comfort break' whenever we return.
Of course I also have memories of starting my first Identification Longshot/Talking Point yonks ago which has brought me into contact with a wide variety of folk and made Fridays for me, a night to look forward to. Life wouldn't be quite the same, for me anyway, without it!
I have asked advice about a whole range of subjects and have had constructive replies both humorous and serious and wouldn't think twice about asking about anything, no matter how trivial or strange it may appear because I know amongst the replies I would find some pearls of wisdom!
I could go on but I won't....
