What me? Eat chocolate................................never!

Hello Mo, yes Marilyn would not want us to let the thread wither away. I was going to write that before, but did not want to offend anyone. But I think we all know our Marilyn, and she would be very upset if we did not post anymore.

Cooeee friendlies,
It's so lovely to see you all posting. This poor little thread has been in mourning for our Marilyn, but now we must buck our idea up, in her name, she would not want this to happen.

Oh Shelly, I see you are up to your old tricks, with your DIY, you are a girl.
It's so good to see you back matey, it's been ages since we spoke.

Maddie my lickle love, I hope you are feeling o.k now my love. Please get yer bum back as often as you can, we missed you.

BC, I have looked everywhere for the eggs, I bet Shelly and Maddie have scoffed them all....serves them right if they put pounds on. lol

Good afternoon Dermot, long time no see, we did miss your little anecdotes when you disappeared, don't forget to pop in now and again please.

Hi Sallie, good to see you on here my love. Hope things are good for you and Alun.

Welcome Samantha, join us whenever you feel like it, we are a friendly bunch, hence our title.

Cooee Jeni, thanks for the call this afternoon. My neighbour had called to tell us, that another of our neighbours had been attacked, and robbed in his own home this morning.
Someone knocked on his door, and when he opened it, a youth barged in, attacked him, and stole his money and valuables.
What a shock this was to us,Geoff is a man in his 80's, and certainly did not deserve this to happen to him.

Hello there Elizabeth, peace to you and your family this easter time, enjoy my love.

Well now friendlies, I must go, but before I do...A very happy easter to you all.
Best wishes Mo xxx

Love to you all.

This thread contains a charming atmosphere of politeness & conviviality not always found elsewhere.

Good afternoon All. Hope you are all well.

Last week my friend also died of Cancer. She was very ill for nearly a year, and wanted to go home to die. And that is exactly what she did. So very sad, she was only a year older than me.

Another friend has had a Stroke, and another is having Tests!

I can remember my Mother saying to me 'Dont ever get old, it isnt funny!'

These ladies are all in their late 50's or early 60's and I dont think that is very old at all. Not with all the advances they are making in medicine.

I am going to the Funeral tomorrow. It will be very sad, and I am not looking forward to it. I know the daughter and her children.

There but for the Grace of God...............

Hello Jean
my girlie is fine at the moment, she was on box rest for 3 weeks as she had strained her leg again in the mud but she's ok now so had another vet bill for pain killers and anti inflammatorys. How are your horses? You got another Vanna horse didn't you? How is he going?

Hello all friendlies, hope you are all ok.

How is your lovely mare Yvonne? hope she is enjoying the warmer weather.

I look in every day but don't often post, just like to keep up with what our friends are doing but the thread has been very quiet, wonder if loosing Marilyn has
maybe upset us all more than we know. I know we are glad she is no longer in pain
but loosing a friend is always sad.

BC I do hope you are feeling well at the moment, keep your chin up love <3

Take care and stay safe everyone. :-) :-) :-)


Yvonne Report 6 Apr 2014 12:51

Just called in to say how sorry I am to hear the news about Marilyn. Such an awful disease. I hope that they can keep her pain free and comfortable. Thoughts go to her family as well, they must be devastated. such a nice lady to speak to, never heard/saw her say anything nasty about anyone. <3 <3 <3
