I think I may be a bit naive, but I haven't a clue what this thread's really about!
Don't worry, Joe, neither has anyone else now! It started as a serious thread and degenerated (?) into chat and humour, thus performing a healing function.
Was about to say it evolved from serious thread and turned into a rather naughty one. Not that I had any input in that. Chastity is my middle name.
Joslow, there is a place for old farts that know about gardening. Unfortunately, it's the same type of old fart that goes bright red and hides behind his paper when anything comes on the telly about ladies' plumbing or gardens (even the ones that have clematis in).
JTG, you will find out when you're older, the thread reminds me of when I go out for a meal with a group of my girl friends, none of us gets out much, and we start cackling like a right coven. I think the waiters pay the waitress to do our table, it's a lovely italian restaurant, complete with lovely Italian boys doing the waiting!
Hehe Joe...I started reading it and it explained alot so i jumped to the end and saw that it was now about girly stuff
I quite like reading some of the threads as they start as one thing and end up something totally different lol. All part of the adventure hehe.
I have to say though that my attention was lost when I read about whiskers and veet
Well, Im not bad at it lol
Good to see you are ok Verdun.
I love this thread. I live on my own and you cannot imagine how important it is to make new friends and chat. I don't have children but I am a great uncle... They can call me "Gruncle" if they like and I hope I can impart a blend of mischief and wisdom. Gardening is my main pastime and I relive the good times with my late wife. She still stands at my shoulder helping me decide what to do next. She's still here holding hands, until I go too.
Aww wonderboy, Im sorry for your loss and am glad you still feel her around you
Gruncle is a fine title
Its uncles and aunties that keep secrets with their nieces and nephews...or so Im told by mine
MMP I agree about going out with friends and degenerating into.........
Someone said something earlier about there being a lot of good on here - I wish we had a ((hug)) smiley
I too have met some lovely people on here. Some that I feel are becoming quite friendly with me. Its nice to see that a common element such as earth can fetch so many people from different walks of life together. Always look to the positive.
WW- it's nice to hear you speak openly. A lot of people have done that here and it's good to feel you can do so without being criticised. You obviously had a lovely, treasured marriage.
This is when the internet can be good.
Thank you everyone for your kind responses. I knew i wasn't taking any risks in sharing stuff with you and I was right. It's too easy to bottle it up and it helps a lot to share thoughts.
My wife and I created the garden from scratch together and it has an importance to me that nothing else can match. I try to have flowers from the garden on her grave every day of the year. So far I have just about managed this. I have daffodils for cutting in the vegetable garden at the moment, and I will plant my runner beans over them a bit later as they die down. Practical as always, and a bit soft- centered too...
There is nothing wrong with that Wonderboy. I think its lovely. Your wife must be very very missed and not just by you my friend. Its lovely to have you in the forum as i am sure the rest will agree.
