Which is only right and proper.

Hey, Grommit! Nice to see you again. How have you been?

And yea, listen to the radio late every night, get up late and have a cup of tea. Decide what I'm going to do when the feeling strikes. It's not a bad life, these days!

Not so social, hence the long silence. And my brain is in a time zone quite different from the one it should occupy. I am trying to train it to use a GPS, but it absolutely insists on the astrolabe, and you just can't get longitude from that. We've had quite heated arguments about this.

Although, if someone could find out where the blowtorch and the recipe for seaweed and raspberry muffins were hidden, I would reconsider. I would not add garlic this time. I've learned my lesson.

Stammtisch refers both to the regular meeting with the same group of friends in the pub, and to the actual table reserved for that meeting.

That was only meant to provide background information for the picture. Using insert image didn't display it, so I only put in a link. Should we have one such table in the cafe, for those times when someone needs it?

Sorry, computer died.

Back now. So, where are all the old-timers? I got a email blast from Alex today saying he started WP 14 years ago. Oh, dear god, was it only 14? 2004? I thought it had been way before then. But maybe not. And then, where did the 14 years go???

Anybody seen Postie lately? Or my Canadian friend? Or SinsBoldy? Anyone????

This seems surreal. To be back on Wrong Planet, especially @ The Dino-Aspie Ex-Café. I got an email from Alex today also, Nan. I've thought of this place a lot during my absence, some good thoughts and some not so good. But, as far as I'm concerned that's water over the dam. :heart:


Well my ship's been split to splinters and it's sinking fast
I'm drownin' in the poison, got no future, got no past
But my heart is not weary, it's light and it's free
I've got nothin' but affection for all those who've sailed with me
Everybody movin' if they ain't already there
Everybody got to move somewhere
Stick with me baby, stick with me anyhow
Things should start to get interesting right about now

As far as getting old goes, I am now watching the 1970s movie " THE SUNSHINE BOYS ", about two old vaudeville comedians who get back together again for one last show.
The shots of the " modern world " of 1975 make me feel nostalgic/wistful! :| :(

Arrrgh, I'm getting the "old people's blues"! :wink:

Nice to see you guys again. Jeez, has it really been that long ago, though?

I guess it has been. I'm old and retired. My daughter is in her 30s! She was in high school when I used to write here. Seriously, I feel like I've been cryogenically frozen and just revived. And the world has gone well on....

Yeah, the modern world. I found a book at a jumble sale the other day. One of those Woodstock-era DIY homesteader books. Lots of photos and drawings. And I remember when people looked like that, and the clothes, and the incense. And I miss that world a whole lot, sometimes. I often wish we got a "do-over" button, so I could go back to when the Kiddo was little and do it all over again. I'd have worried a lot less and played hookey from school with her a lot more. (Although we did more than most do!) I worried about all the wrong stuff!

Short term memory deficit is no fun. You go down to the basement for peas and come up with a potato. I have grandchildren your daughter's age. :roll:

1975 was a very good year.
