Old friends...


Recommended Posts

...are never forgotten.

I do hope you are all well.

While I may not have posted on here in a long time, I still think of the old days. Ten years I think. Nine since that epic trip to Boston & Maine. That will never be forgotten.

I'm sorry I've not been on here or been in touch personally, but since losing my Dad, my marriage and eventually losing contact with all but one of my kids, it's hardened me to the point of almost not caring any more.

Almost, because I'll not forget all my old friends.

Memories of European Air War, Hidden & Dangerous & Operation Flashpoint are stuck in my head. What unforgettable laughs we all had. To top it all, the Combatsim Forums. The hub of all things good. The first real forum I ever came across in '99 when I first got Tinterweb.

Nowadays I'm on a laptop that's seen better days which burns my legs with overheating!

Whatever happens, I'll never forget.

Take care everyone.

Binky!

As your friend and personal unappointed physician, I DEMAND that you spend more time here with us. It'll do you (and above all, us) good, my friend.

Speaking for myself, nothing keeps me more level-headed, grounded, and able to face the chaos of Real Life™ than this group right here. If I could bottle the tonic of these forums, I would, but I can't, so you'll just have to come here each day for a dose. It'll keep you sane :)

You are one of the originals of Csim and we've always kept your place set at the table ... so be sure to drop in any time for a meal of jokes, good-natured ribbing, scantily-clad babes, and downright silly behaviour.

Looking forward to seeing you more in 2011. :)

Rodger Bilko, by all that's holy, sort of! You're LEGEND, man! Maybe just what you need to climb out of that hole you've dropped into, is a session with DR DOUG, and the hugs and greets from all your old friends. The least you can do is a "Yo!" every week. With this bunch there's no way you can feel gloomy! Except when Dark Helmet or Itchie show up. Then all bets are off. New Years resolution, sign on at least one day a week to CSIM and forget your troubles! No charge THIS time! and here's a start.

Rob ... my old friend and flight partner! You are so missed by myself and those still here while you were here tripping over dustbins and carrying a stick! Damn! So good to hear from you! What Doug said. You must hang around with us again! I miss your camaraderie, your wit and wisdom, your little smile ... the way the sun hits your tattoos just so ... ahem ... where was I ... (hard swallow) ... GET YOUR ARSE BACK HERE OK???? :D

Bilko, damn it! You're in trouble.

Ever since you disappeared into the void, I've had to use Donster and a few others as scapegoats in my forum tales. Archie even had to play an orc in several tales.

The Giselle series has seen little action since Squadron Leader Bilko failed to return from a mission into occupied Europe.

Come around more often, my friend, and I guarantee you'll see some action. Possibly as an orc or demon out of hell or even a bumbling private detective. Well, you know, there have been a lot of promotions . . . . .

Jim :rolleyes:

Hmmm? Hang on a second. Maybe it is? Nah! Probably somebody with a user name that's close to his, but not really his. Hang on ... that's odd ... the name is correct, and the post count is correct. Could it be?

Oh yeah, that's DEFINITELY Rommel! :D

Hey Romsey! Great to see you in the swamp again. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

What in the heck have you been up to? Time travelling, perhaps? :)

It's like a Frank Capra movie in here, it is <wipes a tear and sniffles> :)
