I bought a candle at a charity shop on Saturday.
Opened it out of packaging today and dye came off on my hands.
I don't think that is meant to happen but hey ho.
Have lit candle and washed hands in anti bacterial soap.

That's too bad banjo.
Hope it was peaceful and that he didn't suffer.

It'll still be there after all this is over, and it's well worth the wait even in thunderous, pouring rain!

I have cancer.

Metastatic Renal cancer.

Terminal, I'm afraid. No idea how long I've got, but it's aggressive and it's in my bones.

That's that. Just trying to stay healthy as long as possible while they do their best to slow things down. Still having a laugh on social media, just not getting out much. (who is these days, anyway?}

Anyway .. no massive sympathy posts, please. That's not what this was all about. It was just to let some of the old guard here what the score was, and why I'm not around much, being daft and posting my pics these days.

Toodle pip for noo - I'll try to keep you guys updated with further devs.

All the best, etc ... Me.

Doorstop,

I am sure all on this forum will be thinking of you in these uncertain times.

Let's hope COVID19 ends soon and you can see your friends and family in person.

Do keep posting if/when you feel you like it as I'm sure we all want to hear your news.

Look after yourself.

ach that really is rotten news doorstop.lost too many of the old gang on here and really have missed your pics,patter and witticisms.a lot of folk on here have never had the fortune in their life to have met you in person ross so I can honestly say to them that they have missed out on meeting a very kind,considerate,caring,listening genuine warm person who despite being still young of age in the great scheme of things had a wealth of knowledge and funny tales in equal measure.love ya big guy,keep good care of the keys to the pie cupboard.your friend,banjo. :cry: :D :D :D :D

Doorstop

Just revisited this site (first for a wee while) and the first post I read is your devastating news. We've lost far too many old timers in the last few years and this forum no longer has that pull which makes me want to gravitate to it on a daily basis.

There are simply no words and I'm not going to sob, for you don't want that but I do hope for your sake that you make each day count whilst you can and continue with your posts and in due course, if you must join those greats who've passed on before us, you too will become one of the legends of this place but until such time, in the words of Spock, 'live long and prosper'
"Listen, it's too big a world to be in competition with everyone. The only person who I have to be better than is myself. And in your case, that's enough."

Cheers, gentlemen. Delmont, wonderful words there. Not sure I warrant them, right enough .. And, Banjo?

I will keep tight hold of those keys, but only until you turn up as their rightful owner. ;)
