Great to see so many old faces .....

Post by K4KittyCrew »

Hi Folks,

Just wanted to acknowledge the fact that with the influx of new members here, it is really great to see so many 'old faces' appearing on a day to day basis. If 'Upkeep', Rob Wood, and alike, can find there way here, ( don't know there their email addresses ) that would be an added bonus.

If anyone has any further suggestions they would like to add, please do so, maybe some 'challenges' or alike, please message me or any of our 'friendly' moderators.

We will, within reason, try to accommodate to the best of our ability .............. because, at the end of the day, it is you the members who keep the forums going.
Regards,
John

Hi Mike

I have a number of books with Manna photos, but probably nothing new to you. But I'll have a look and give you more detail

Oh lord - the tone is getting lower - Max - Alex - now Mike - Oh dear - what have we done to deserve this. It was so nice initially. Think I might become a fighter boy.

Mike - don't work too hard and keep the Landie cosy!!
