Mr BD

I'm not sure what has occurred

However, I'd like to assert that I've seen nothing but kindness and helpfulness in your posts.

With health subjects, I've wished you well and you've wished me well, strangers with nowt more than this forum in common

And that makes me wish that the forum will still link good hearted people and that the occasional irritations will blow off like midges

Best

Richard

My kids just roll their eyes when I pitch this kinda fit. Once you get over 50, they just kinda come naturally. Grumpy old men, maybe we need our own thread.

OK, my self-exile is over. I figured it was better to bow out briefly than than to say what was on my mind at the time and regret it. I've added one person to my ignore list and suggest he do the same to me.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

I just got a hold of Tom 2 days ago and asked how that ignore list worked and I have a few people in there as well, now.
There's just to much crap in peoples life to have to come to a forum and put up with more. Glad to see your back Dawg.
