Where is she?

I was recently thinking about vampirequeen but on searching, the latest post I could see from her was back in March.
Her posts were always interesting and I know she had health problems but wonder if anyone knows if she's ok or if she's taking a break ( or even opted out of GN. )

And gillybob too. I used to love her posts. She took a break Marydoll told us pre Christmas - her husband was unwell according to her last post on GN.
I do hope it wasn’t bad news.

Now you mentioned it vampirequeen is another of the formerly known posters. There seem to be so many who don’t post anymore or who have a new user name. Still think of PRINTMISS, never hear from her now. I know there are lots of new posters but it takes a while for me to connect with them. I heard that Marydoll said gillybob was taking a break too.

Members come and go and that's how it is, but I do hope that both vampire and gilly are well and just taking a break.

Some members are particularly memorable e.g. downtoearth(Nellie) and her lovely granddaughter; and Janerowena - I loved the tales of her Suffolk country garden as I used to visit that area with a late friend of mine.

I was thinking about gillybob this morning and hoping she and her family are all right.

I thought of granjura too when we saw Switzerland on the news - we may have had differences of opinion but I hope they are OK with all this snow.

I too miss Janerowena as we had a lot in common and often swapped gardening tips.

I go off for weeks on end, does anyone every miss me? wink

Surely lots of people take holidays or are very busy for other reasons? I can't keep up with who all the posters are anyway.

And Jings - hate to lower the reverent tone! grin

Nonnie Tue 15-Jan-19 16:50:50

River didn't she get banned?

Jalima1108 Tue 15-Jan-19 16:54:05

I missed you Nonnie smile

Nonnie Tue 15-Jan-19 17:20:54

Ah thanks Jalima there are times when I feel invisible grin like today when I started a thread asking if the Search function is working and no one responded. Was I being too controversial? confused

Jalima1108 Tue 15-Jan-19 17:37:11

perhaps we couldn't find it ….

Jalima1108 Tue 15-Jan-19 17:38:06

No, it's not working!

MiniMoon Tue 15-Jan-19 17:40:48

Is Baubles still around? I haven't seen anything from her for a while.

Nonnie Tue 15-Jan-19 17:42:51

Thanks Jalima I'm visible!!! grin I like your sense of humour.

joannapiano Tue 15-Jan-19 18:41:09

I wonder how Frank and his dog are. Perhaps still going to Bums and Tums?

Marmight Tue 15-Jan-19 19:00:12

Crow, Sewsilver, Grannylin, Oldgreymare, Manic ...?

Bellanonna Tue 15-Jan-19 19:29:29

Pompa, soontobe (both had later name changes), grannylyn, wot

cavewoman Tue 15-Jan-19 19:34:21

I miss the posts from OldMeg sad

cavewoman Tue 15-Jan-19 19:36:21

Nonnie I responded to you! Am I invisible?

NanKate Tue 15-Jan-19 19:47:52

I too miss Jing even though I had an occasional run in with her. HQ got rid of her I believe.

Nannylovesshopping Tue 15-Jan-19 19:52:59

I liked Wot and Wilmaknickersfit, hope they are both fit and well

Maggiemaybe Tue 15-Jan-19 20:09:53

I thought I’d seen something from Wot recently, but I can’t check because the search facility’s not working (has anyone else noticed that? grin Nonnie).

callgirl1 Tue 15-Jan-19 23:09:52

I still miss Frank
