Default To all the lovely people ..

Just want to say a huge THANK YOU for weloming me into your fold as you did (& to the ones who didn't, made the rest look even sweeter.)

Anyway, the thing is I came here for a reason which you all know. What you may not realize is .. ever since I got online one of the things I've tried to do was find people. I've lived all over the place & lost touch with every childhood friend - my family is scattered across the world - everyone from my uni days & early adulthood has gone missing. The first search I did was for my mother's brothers who she lost contact with when she was 8 & put into a girls home. I didn't find them.
Then Facebook came along & I started having more success - still most people are not to be found, especially girls who have changed names.
Duncan was one I searched for - not cos he's famous (didn't know he was lol) but cos we had fun. No luck of course - until a few weeks ago. You can't imagine how excited I was! One of the few successes!
But now I feel I've gone as far as I can in trying to contact him. Not everyone wants to be found & that's a fact.

I have had a lot of laughs while I've waited to see if I was going to get a message or just a hullo or whatever - but I just don't think I am going to find a niche here. My main reason for being here was to try contact Dunc.
I might come back to annoy you every now & again if I don't get chucked off for not posting. Again, thank you for being so incredibly warm.
And I'll post the pic again for anyone who mised it, as it didn't get a lot of comments. It's actually a photo of a photo (blimmin DIL still hasn't connected my Pixma). Byeeeee!!

As Dunx has nothing to do with computers he might not contact you directly but I'm sure someone will pass on your message.

You won't get kicked off for not posting this site doesn't work that way

Good luck with finding your missing family and friends.

Love jx

Yes as Jen correctly says, Duncan has nothing to do with this board- I think I did explain that when you joined. He has never been here in fact.
You are always welcome back, but please dont think he was being rude- this internet malarky is not Duncans bag- and never will be, and he is perfectly entitled to that decision!
Social networker he is not...He doesnt even own a mobile phone!

I know that Robin did mention your posting here to him, and he did remember you well.
Good luck with finding the other people you are looking for.
