Two Weeks to Go!
I registered with the new site which Terry Carey has mentioned a week or so back and am enjoying it enormously. It has a wealth of facilities and is very welcoming. It is run by two ex-FR chaps, Chris Gadsden and Murray Whyte, who you may remember.
There are a number of people here with whom I would like to keep in touch. So if you would like to keep in touch with me please send me a PM while I am still able to receive them, and let me know your e-mail and/or your phone number.
I shall keep popping in to see what you are all up to but, of course, if I do not renew my subs, I will not be able to post or message you.
Amazingly, I realise that I have been on FR since 2007, the year that my son, Duncan went off on his first tour in Afghanistan. How time flies!!
During that time I have shared many things with you, good times and bad times. I have amused or bored you with tales of what my Darling Daisy got up to and you shared with me the great sadness of her loss 18 months ago. Now you have met my new baby and the joy of my life, Barney, who hopefully, I will be sharing many years of love and fun with.
I'm looking for a new site, could you tell me what the the new site is that Terry and yourself have joined.
The site that Terry, J.D., and myself have joined is called 'The Over Fifties Forum'. It is run by Chris Gadsden (ex RAF and FR) and Murray Whyte (ex Army and FR).
It has all the facilities that FR used to have before all the disastrous changes plus many, many more, is extremely warm and welcoming and, what is more, it's free!
Thanks for the info, I'll get right into the new site.
Have you been over to have a look at TOFF yet? I read what Len said about waiting until his subs were reduced to £5. If FR offer me a much reduced rate I might consider staying but I think that £14-99p is far too much for the facilities we have been left with. x
I'll see what happens when my subs become due. There might be a 'Special Offer' made.
re-connect with some of my friends and old comrades from those best years of my life (when I was young and vibrant). Although I have spotted a couple of names that I know well, I'm not sure they're still active on the site and by what I've read the site is not the site it was a few years ago. But being an inveterate optimist, I keep hoping I might get a pleasant surprise one day. It must be a bit dispiriting though when members don't get responses to their posts and that seems to be what happens quite a lot, or am I wrong?

so I thought I'll throw a stone in the pond and see if there were any ripples.
