Hello old friends - a rave from the grave

Well, not the grave exactly. I used to post quite a bit, in the early years of Gransnet, with the handle vegas mags. I see quite a lot of old friends are still around - elegran, jane ainsworth (who gave me such good dental advice), I am 64 (again, brilliant doggy advice), the erudite baggs, soop, MawB, galen and anno. I suspect there are other old lags who have undergone name changes.
I stopped posting for a variety of reasons but thought I would like to dip my toe back in the water. As I am watching my blood pressure I will be avoiding anything too controversial!

I remember you very well from when you posted before vegasmags because I believe you live in my neck of the woods and if my memory serves me well, you may have said you lectured in Stockport.
Welcome back, I think you will find us much changed.

You're right annsixty - what a memory! I do indeed live in your neck of the woods and lectured in Stockport until my retirement.

Hi there vegas mags, welcome back. I will try to remember your news name, shall now repeat it to try and lodge it in my shrinking memory.

Have you been lurking? It will be interesting to hear if you find Gn a changed place

I remember you too! Though apparently you've forgotten me! sad

Welcome back! I look forward to seeing lots of posts from you.

Done a bit of lurking before taking the plunge. Can't quite get my head around all the games that there are now. I shall of course expect the same elevated level of debate I remember ...

Oh kitty - how could I? I shall go outside and beat myself with stinging nettles. Of course I remember you!

mbmb beating yourself with a stinging nettle was once a sovereign remedy for arthritis. grin
