I think we can stop using clyde in the title now...

It was funny to look here and realize that everyone's topics include the phrase "for clyde" or similar.

It's all heavyweight now, folks... we can just put the question in.

Ah, the freedom is intoxicating

Sweet! The "Weight Weenies" must be soooo jealous

Seriously, I am glad we have a place to chat.

Remember, some of these threads were moved here from other forums, hence "Clyde" in the title.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Yes, it's just about two years since the forum was founded, isn't it?

I think would say we might even need a sub-sub forum for us old Clyde's... sort of a 50+ Clydes forum (me).

Of course, if we did this then someone might say we would need a "50+ Clydes Who Are Losing Their Hair" forum, then a "50+ Clydes Who Are Losing Their Hair And Are Single" forum, and...

Oh well... you get the picture.

I love this place.
