whos the idiot?

jim davis said...

THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION IS. THE ANONYMOUS LAST MONTH THAT STIRED UP A HEATED DEBATE THINKING SHE WOULD NOT BE RECOGNIZED. ALSO THE WRITER OF THE TWO THAT IS ENTERED ABOVE. AFTER READING CONTRIBUTIONS FROM PEOPLE YOU SOON GET TO KNOW THE WRITER. EVEN IF THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN TO LEAVE THEIR NAMES. THEIR STYLE OF WRITING GIVES THEM AWAY. MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE I THINK THAT IS SAD REALLY.

I agree Jim i think they are trying to get us rattled and maybe loose our rag ,but this time i wont take the bate ,i will stay calm and keep my hair on . [ and so say all of us ]

jim davis said...

Yes Grace, instead let's talk about Yvonne and Ken. We all have our problems from time to time, and I think it is because of that we are all able to empathize with each other. So Yvonne when you read this our concern for you and Ken are not just empty words but heart felt. So take care of yourself as well as Ken.

Thanks Jim for all your support, it is through this site that I get by. As you know Ken is now home. I hope Flossie is on the mend and Lyn is coping with it all. Sorry not to have seen everyone at the reunion, It sounds as if it went really well, hopefully will catch up sometime. If ever you fly from Gatwick our door is always open to friends.

What if we are not flying,any chance of a cuppa and chocolate digestive?

Eff said...

Oh dear Jim, what makes you think that last month anonymous was a she. I thought it was a 'he'.
But I guess best ignored in both places.

I am pretty sure the woman concerned knows that I know who she is Eff. But I will let sleeping dogs lie, I was just making a point to her.

Ted baker said...

Hi there i met mr x at the reuion. lurking in the car park. i throught he was trying to nick one of the cars.We got chatting i said you got every ones back up. Why did you do it he said i got fed up with all the daft chat that was going on. He said that he did have some good times on the estate. and some bad ones.He would'nt give me his name. In case they kicked him of the site as they did last time.why i was in the car park was to have some fresh air.Idid ask him if he new many people here he said quite a few. I said that more than i knew.I said by and went back inside, i never sew him again. it was not long after this that me and my brother Roy went home.So you we can put this one to rest it was a bloke.

The original person may well have been a man Ted. But a cuckooite came into the conversation as another anonymous having a go at some of us. There are two points re' your comment. How did you know Mr X was the man, did he just come up to you and say." Hello stranger don't tell anybody but I am Mr X", the second person was a woman I am convinced about that. The most interesting point though is, no one has ever been kicked off this site, no one. The only time a person has left is because they wanted to as you did a while back. I cannot envisage that ever happening, the only thing that Tommy would do is delete anything that in his judgment was of bad taste or offensive.

Ethel (Stevens) Damian said...

I went searching back, Jim, to try to find what you was talking about, but it was just too time consuming. I do remember the original comment that Ted confirmed was a man's, and really it should end there. I was one who came to his aid when he was being jumped upon by some of you, and I still think it was unfair of you who didn't (because of his troubled past) respect him wanting to remain annonymous. I think one other female also felt the same way, but cant remember who it was.
Sorry, Jim, but it is a free country (on both sides of the pond) and both countries honour free speech.
Hope the person that you was refering to wasn't me just because I disagreed with you, but I am sure that I signed my name, as I am doing so now....

jim davis said...

Eff you are missing the point, as far as I am concerned people are entitled to have their own opinion, and I do not think anyone would argue about that. But what we were having a go at was, if you have something to say that is controversial come out in the open and say it. If you do not wish to do that then do what Thumper's mother said." If you can't say something nice then don't say nothing at all." I have no intention of mentioning the name of the woman, she knows who she is, and she knows that I know I am sure. So let that be the end of it. ( Till the next time. )

jim davis said...

Sorry I forgot to put this in my last email. 1./ Ted met the man.( Ok that is fine.) 2./ Ted asked him why did he put everyones back up by saying what you did on the site. 3./ I find it interesting that X did not reiterate any of the things that he was so ready to say originally. 4./ Is Ted a liar.? 5./I don't think so, so In that case this is what the man said his reason was.
6./ Ted asked "Why did you do it"? he said "i got fed up with all the daft chat that was going on." 7./Need anyone say any more about this,? I think not surely the mans words speak for themselves.

yvonneh said...

Jim Have I missed something, surely we are not stirring up all this old rubbish again. I too get incensed with anonymouses but we have had that debate. If you are sure this is a she please tell us who and be done with it.
Like Eff, we are adults and I see fit to ignore the anonymouses and not reply you should do the same.

Eff said...

Good advice Yvonne and I for one will take it.
So lets get back to what all Englishmen are good at ....discussing the weather.
Our's is great right now, a bit of frost in the morning, with the plants and vehicles outside covered with a little white dusting. Sun comes out mid morning and is really pleasant.
Remember the old days on the estate when Jack Frost used to pay us a visit and paint those lovely designs on the windows?

Eff I remember having to get out of bed when the icicles were on the inside of the windows, I used to get dressed in bed before I put my feet out on the cold lino, brrrrrr. Then it was a rush to the bathroom or if the loo was being used, (usually Brian hogged it and you didnt go in after him, mind you it took him ages to put his brylcream on_) I used the kitchen sink for a lick and a promise. Sometimes you could see your breath in the air like mist, Pixie hood scarf and gloves on all made by mum coat and off to school to fight for the space by the radiator and to have a drink of COLD milk. You were lucky if you didnt get chilblains, funny you never hear of them now.

Angela Ware Kelling said...

I was plagued with chilblains as a child & somtimes could hardly write in school.Here in eastern Washington, where the temps. get down way below zero, they are unheard of.I just don't get it.

jim davis said...

Hello Angela, I was told as a kid if you put very cold feet in front of an open fire, too close and for too long that is what caused Chilblains. You could if you want, get the answer on Google. But being a woman I guess you want everything done for you.

Angela said...

Thanks Jim.That was my reward for hogging the fire.

Eff said...

I remember having chilblains and also all those red mottled things on your legs when you got too close to the fireplace. Do you remember the awful smogs that we had in November, and if you just washed your face and hands after getting home and not the rest of your body you had a tide mark around your neck and water drip marks up your arms?
Remember when the River Brent would overflow it's banks and we would have to wade through it?
The Brent was flooded when my daughter was born and George and his buddy had to push their car through it to get to my mum's house to give her the news of her grand daughter's arrival.

Angela said...

I do remember comimg home on a smoggy night,taking off my headscarf & my fringe was a darker colour from the rest of my hair. It's wonderful that we have survived the polution.

Eff said...

I remember trying to walk home from Greenford in the smog one night and ending up where I had started from. I had walked a complete circle without knowing it. The buses, of course, had quit running. I ended up spending the night in the staff room at the Granada along with quite a few of my stranded co workers. We had lot's of fun though, we went back stage and got some old curtains to use as blankets, and then went up in the circle and threw down empty ice cream cartons at the cleaners below. They scarpered out of there really fast, thinking it was our local ghost, Charlie doing the mischeif. Our under manager, Mr. Fisher, locked himself in his office, don't know if he was more scared of Charlie or us girls.
