B and B will be ready when you are, I want to accompany you when you deal with the other business ;-) and another meet during the summer would be great :-D


TessAkaBridgetTheFidget Report 29 Dec 2012 23:57

Sounds like you are planning on having a good time Roy.

Will miss you on the boards though.
Pleased that you will not be deleting your account and hope to see you back some day.

Meanwhile, have a great time with your friends in Europe, doing all those things you have always wanted to do, or perhaps repeating the things you enjoyed first (or even second and third) time round.

Tess :-) :-(

I hope you have a wonderful time in the Last Chance Saloon Porkie - I wish I could join you.

Take great care and continue enjoying being a free spirit for as long as you can.

Onwards and upwards to you, Wend xxx

All the very best for 2013 Roy <3

My last post,

I would like to thank each and every one of you for your thoughts and best wishes, <3

I did say some months ago that I was leaving and as Joy pointed out I do keep my word,

Having thought about deleting my account, Due to poplar demand and the resulting loss of 8 years helping on the boards I have decided not to delete the account,

I may return in the future just to keep an eye on the riff raff or just be nosy but doubt I will become a paying member again, “never say never” and I no it’s only ten quid about to be nearly twenty flipping quid “Whispers” the moneys not important BUT I never actually said that :-| :-P

I’ve had lots of memorable times, and the odd disagreements but bear no grudges life is far to short, ;-)

I will still be interested in any Meets/Party’s that are forthcoming next year particularly in the South Yorkshire area and also as I have a firm offer of a B&B in South Wales then a South Wales meet suits me fine as I believe I may have other business in that area also (Kill two birds with one stone) ;-)

I intend spending more time travelling around Europe as I have many friends that live over the water and don’t seem to get the time to visit them like I used to and with my health deteriorating then I feel the time is right to go off drinking smoking partying and getting into as much trouble as possible whilst I still can, :-D and i also have to do my bit for the local community so dicidede to support my local pub more than i have in resent times :-D

Take care <3 <3 <3

Roy,,,aka Tight Git..

If your that Yorkshire,if you go and delete your account,if and when you decide to come back.
The amount you would have to pay for subs would be over double the amount you pay now..

And all the people that have posted on here DO NOT WANT YOU TO GO..

I am from Yorkshire and I would hate to pay at least £20 when I could stay and just pay under a tenner.

So get that tenner out from the very tight pocket and get paying .. :-)

Best of luck for the future, Roy.

Right Roy !
I've read back , you've said it in a nutshell, quote :-

'My tree having been removed long ago and so i only used the boards anyway, i will delete the account altogether tomorrow (being from Yorkshire aka "tight git" i had to use every last day)'

You only use the boards anyway ! GOOD !!

Well that is where your wealth of knowledge on a huge range of topics ,( IT probs [for one ]..shouts of ask Porkie Pie are heard ) your stories , humour ,sarcasm ;-) whit and empathy are put to use ,
I for one don't want to loose that .
Many others have said what such an important input you make to the boards,so if that's all you use why go ? .....£10 in the pot from me.

So common 'tight git' and let's see you posting tomorrow.
Roy has not left the building ...yet.

(with fingers crossed behind her back)
