Is it dangerous to be a Grandad on this forum? Perhaps there is a chaps forum somewhere then!

It's only dangerous if you're a right winger and speak the truth; that goes for grans too!!!

EllanVannin Sat 31-Oct-20 12:01:48

Gosh no, do join us and welcome. We do have a granddad in-situ, though he hasn't posted of late so we're hoping all is well with him.
Also another who's home is Melbourne but with the time difference, he posts in the evening here as it's their morning.

A warm welcome, from me Omits01
Good to see another male on the site.

Welcome to GN Omits01 we are always pleased to see a new member nana or grandpa makes no difference.

I echo Marydoll, Omits01smile

Welcome Omits01. Always good to have a male viewpoint on the forums; makes for more balanced discussions

BlueSapphire Sat 31-Oct-20 13:04:45

A warm welcome from me too.

Welcome to GN ......or...... ‘a funny thing happened on the way to the forum’😁
Grandads are just as welcome as anyone else, look around, and posts your thoughts on some threads?

Omits01 G'Day Mate!! Pardon me for asking, but are you fair dinkum?
You asked this question on 2nd Oct and Maw suggested you try a Silverlinings or something like that. You didn't respond! sad
Then more recently you asked about Grandads Shed and was referred to my "GreatNan"thread and was given a welcome, but again no response! sad
Perhaps you could give some clues as to what it is you are looking for! smile

Excellent miss marple technique there rufus grin

Welcome from me too you have to be a strong lad and understand women’s humour which can seem hard sometimes but we do like having some men to banter with
I hope you stay around a while

Omits01. Welcome. Why don’t you start by posting on the Good Morning thread which is opened daily by Michael. If you read today’s thread - Good Morning Saturday you will get a flavour of the posts which are very varied, long, short, inbetween, personal, or very descriptive. You can post daily or just when the mood takes you. Then join their threads that interest you. Or start a thread telling us about a hobby for example. Some of the ladies on here are great at diy etc, keen gardeners, so lots of chance for shared interests.

Welcome Omits01, always good to welcome another poster of either sex, or somewhere in between. You don’t even have to be a grandparent. We have our Spangler who is one of us but doesn’t have children or grandchildren.

LauraNorder Sat 31-Oct-20 15:04:45

PS Spangler is male

dragonfly46 Sat 31-Oct-20 17:24:11

Welcome - we have a number of Granddads on here.

Another male, we are definitely a threatened species, let me explain:

Welcome to our forum,
we hope you enjoy your stay.
And please feel free to be yourself
as long as it's the way we say.
Make sure that, you know your place'
not too much, or we'll tear you down.
we'll bully you for smiling
and wonder why you frown.
We'll tell you that your worthless
and if that doesn't confound
we will cry a load of crocodile tears
As you're buried in the ground.
Your politics can be with anyone
As long as it's who we choose,
And we'll let you have your opinions
If you shape them to our views.
Welcome to our forum,
we promise that we won't deceive
And one more rule now that you're here,
There's no way you can leave.

TrendyNannie6 Sat 31-Oct-20 20:53:19

You are more than welcome Omits01

What?

Omits01 posted this on Fri 02-Oct-20 19:52:00
Share a beer or glass of wine about once a week. That's it for us. too expensive so really gave it up when a bottle went over £2.50
I have no recollection of mentioning Silverlinings (another member by the way )
From what I can see he has been a member since at least las March anyway
So what are you going on about?

welbeck Sun 01-Nov-20 02:58:26

but Rufus'ss''''s'' point remains, that Omits01 has yet to respond to all these comments/welcomes. how come ?

Have you tried Silverline?

One gets a bit lonely sometimes. How can one safely chat with an online friend? Is there a website that does this for older people (UK)?

Maw I thought you might pop up sooner or later! grin

Sorry to spoil your day, but the above came up on a GN search. hmm
I know our memories are supposed to fade with age, but Oct. 2nd isn't that long ago!
What I'm "going on about", if that's what you'd like to call it, is as one of the resident "chaps", what interests Omit01 so we can re-assure him he'll be in safe hands and we can have something to chat about, other than cheap plonk!
Not that difficult really! grin
