Re: Memories

tiger1 wrote:Hi everyone. I have been quietly sitting in the wings reading everybody's post's as and when they arrive and i'm thinking, "flippin heck!" i'm not the only one who collected memorabillia and memories of a place i once worked. I thought i must be alone in regarding a place of work as a friend or even family. I have nothing but wonderful memories. My time at Windsor was, without a shadow of a doubt, the best time of my entire working career so far. With this site, and everyone who is posting on it, what was an unfortunate demise of a wonderful place is being well and truly kept alive for many people. It still feels as if it was only yesterday when i was there and you guys are still colleagues even though i have never met some of you. If it was ever possible to have a virtual life running along side a real one then surely this is it. I have a shed load of physical artifacts as well as memories and now i can share them. I still work with the decendants of the original Windsor Lions and Hippo's, (anyone remember "Gertie" the Hippo. She's still alive and going strong) , but i will never be as happy as i was at Windsor.
Thanks for keeping my happy memories as vivid as ever.

Hello Tiger1, or may I call you Clubby.

That was a very nice post and well written :D
As for "Gertie" I did not know her but I'm sure happy that she is doing well and going strong :D

Have a good weekend!
Lee.

You are quite right - you are as old as you feel.

So today I am 3 - being very silly and happy cause I just finished my exams - (will probably not be so happy if I have failed). Hope everyone out there is well and happy.
Now moving over to Lee's into the Blue subject

Hello Dahai.

I have just posted two photo's on "Holiday Favorites" with some trial and error. If I can do it so can you,trust me! After uploading the photo I just kept using all the URLs one at a time from image shack (cut and paste) and then previewed my post. Then there it was, the desired outcome! (Almost).Keep trying to send the other photos,it's only a matter of time before you get it. Very interesting, all the holiday photos or favorites show a lack of human inhabitants. It might stem from our affinity for animals?

Be good! Life is short!
Lee.

PS. Is ,there ;a program 'to: check" the ,punctuation ? I could sure use it.

I am celebrating a bit cause I have been given my results and I passed Law and Accountancy with really good marks (60% Law 85% Accounts) I can now move onto year two.
(would rather work with animals again - but need to earn more to pay for the skating - cant wait for Chris to start working enough to pay for his own lessons)
Berni does a little dance, sits down knackered.................. gosh I feel old.

I used to say all that booze when we were so young would sozzle our brains - perhaps this is the proof. (worth it though!!!! ha ha)
