A fond farewell

By the time you read this I will be gone.

Like a thief in the night, I slipped away when you weren't looking.

I don't know exactly where I'll be but it won't be here.  I imagine I will be somewhere on the road, cursing at crap drivers and looking forward to a bit of a holiday in West Cork.

Yes – I am going to No-Interwebland for a couple of weeks.

Rather than leave this site just gathering dust, I came up with the idea of reprieving a few old posts that I had forgotten about.  They have been languishing in the vaults, unloved and wilting so why not give them a breath of fresh air?

Now there is a small problem here.  I can connect to the Interweb where I'm going, but only on my mobile phone.  So I might occasionally drop in to read comments but I won't be replying for the simple reason that typing on a tiny screen where one fingertip covers about six keys is a gigantic pain in the hole and suitable only for sending the odd text.  It would take me a week just to type that last sentence. 

If you want to chat amongst yourselves, there is little I can do to stop you.  However chatting is only open to people who have chatted before.  If you're a newcomer then tough – you'll go into Moderation until I get back.

I have picked the posts more or less at random.  The only criterion is that the post doesn't involve current affairs that applied at the time.  This eliminated quite a few as it meant dumping all the political ones.

I also discovered that my repetition rate is scary.  I also had to dump all the items that I had written about recently [and probably multiple times]. 

I honestly haven't a clue if this will work.  If it does, they'll pop up at random from time to time.

If it doesn't, you won't even see this, so don't say I didn't warn you.

In the meantime….

Behave yourselves.

  1. In the meantime….

    Behave yourselves.

    I trust you are being humorous there, GD. The only times I behave myself is when I do so by accident. However, when I realise what I have done, I take measures to make amends.

    Enjoy your hols.


  2. And what's happened to my little Greek flag? The only reason I post here is because I get a flag. Boo hiss, I wuz robbed! If I don't get my flag, I shall scream and scream until I go blue! So there!

  3. If it were me I’d leave the mobile phone behind as well. I love mid-Wales as it hardly has any phone coverage.

    Have a good holiday.

  4. Hope Grandad photographs on his holidays  (a) a moving statue in Ballinspittle, (b) a leprechaun with a crock of gold at the end of the rainbow, or (c) an exotic rare bird blown in from South America.

  5. Of course we could take over his web site and post a bunch of rants and see how many people our posts would offend, but then if we did that no one would realize GD was gone.

  6. Have a wonderful holiday, GD. Enjoy your time off from your…er…time off…as it were. On that note, what the hell do you call a pensioner (I believe that's what you call it over there?) who takes a holiday? Over in my neck of the woods it would be called taking a vacation from your retirement.

  7. Have a good holiday.   It doesn't matter if you do not post as I shall be going on holiday tomorrow.
