    I have had time to read and analyze the posts on Hope’s thread “What the Heck’s going on Here?” Took me a while because I have at one time or another interacted with most of the members who replied to the thread. I had to like cast my mind back to remind myself of how I pleased those who supported me and how I displeased those who did not.

    I joined Forum Garden way back when at a time when I was an Internet virgin like I guess we all were once. I made many mistakes, I made many apologies, I was banned many times, and I made many apologies again.

    I tried to bring a fresh approach to the Garden, especially at times when I believed, rightly or wrongly, that this Discussion Forum was falling by the wayside. The way I expressed myself gained me many followers, mostly of the fairer sex and many detractors, mostly of the opposite sex. I make no apology for this as I know for a fact that I brought a modicum of pleasure & happiness to many who were unloved and unappreciated. I tried my best to post Threads that were original, interesting and discussion worthy. In this respect I believe I succeeded more than I failed.

    One of the first members I became friends with was Hope6 whom I christened “My Southern Belle.” We had our ups and downs during our often tempestuous online relationship, yet we have remained friends ever since. We have a sort of “can’t get on together but can’t bear to be apart” affair. She remains one of my best online friends and I am sure she thinks the same of me.

    Dear Oscar … she and I are so alike that we often have our online tiffs, simply because opposites attract and our personalities are too alike. Yet because she is such a fair lady who detests hypocrisy, she almost always comes to my aid and supports me whenever she believes I am being unfairly treated.

    Annie and Gilly … well they have been my online friends through all my trials and tribulations, scolding me when I’ve done wrong but standing by me when push came to shove … United we stand.

    Ms Boop has made her feelings known on this thread in no uncertain manner. Despite the fact that she has posted only negatively about me, I certainly bear her no ill will. I treasure the times in the past when we spoke to each other as friends and sometimes shared the odd joke and trivial stuff. Personally I still believe that my thread “Betty Boop” was more a celebration of a lovely lady than an attempt to lure her into my no-existent “harem.” I shall ensure that in future mentioning her name on Forum Garden will be taboo.

    I have left mentioning Lady J for last. I doubt FG realises what an asset she is to the Forums. She is an intelligent, wonderful lady who has to be really pushed to the edge before she would ever “bad mouth” anyone. She and I have a very special friendship and she fiercely defends me against all comers, but when I am wrong she tells me so in no uncertain manner. She is a gem among gems.

    Lastly, I want to apologise to any FG member or guest who was offended by my thread in which I unfortunately “lost it” and used language unbecoming to a gentleman.

    Merci beaucoup.

    Jj.
    As always....well said.

    It doesn't do for everybody to be the same, so you just carry on being you, it makes Forum Garden more interesting, and it is a fact that for a period of time your threads kept Forum Garden ticking over. They certainly made a nice change from those oppressive same old, same old religious threads! Now that might put the cat among the pigeons !
    I do try to act like a gentleman Gilly, I really do.

    Thank you.......accepted.

    A small extract from my special journal follows.................make of it what you will.

    I was born and brought up in SE London, the third of five sons. Our father was a Turncock working for the Metropolitan Water Board. We brothers thought he dug holes for a living because if we ever saw him at work he was waist deep in a hole in the road.
    We used to eat in our kitchen, the brick walls were painted cream and olive green. Dinner time, back then was midday, we didn’t have lunch, we were too poor.
    Later we had a meal called Tea, no supper, we were too poor.
    I would sit on a bench against the wall with one of my brothers, trapped by the table in front.
    On the fridge to my left was our Radio with two big glass batteries beside it. I remember hearing “Women’s Hour”, “Listen with Mother” and “Mrs Dale’s Diary” and the highlight of the week “Two Way Family Favourites”.
    Mondays would be cold meat and mashed potato and pickles day, Dad with his muscle power used to mash while Mum laid out the sliced roast from yesterday.
    We had a toothless Great Aunt that could eat anything with her gums, she kept us supplied with Piccalilli, Pickled onions or we had Pan Yan pickle from the Co-op shop.
    I remember one or other of my elder brothers would goad me to react. A poked tongue or funny face would cause me to complain. Some days a kick or just a touch hidden below the table made me plead for them to “Stop ” with a tear in my eye, or I might frustratedly retaliate with a kick. It was always me that got scolded, made to sit up straight. When I questioned the justice of my brothers “Picking on me” and me being told off the reply was simple. “That’s what they want, if you react they have won, all you have to do is smile back and they will get bored and leave you alone”

    For a man that dug holes for a living my old man was quite clever.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    You are one of my best online friends Jj, and you were one of my first friends. FG was the very first forum I ever joined and I met you here 4 days later. That was over 6 years ago. This statement of yours sums us up perfectly I think. " We have a sort of “can’t get on together but can’t bear to be apart” affair." but even if I'm peeved at you I will still speak up about stuff around here if I think it's needed.
