: When I looked at the message board and saw the number of our mates who have passed on it made me think,most of us have but a short time left on earth, which means we don't have unlimited time to make amends for the wrongs we did to each other, so before Slim's funeral on Tuesday can we all stop for a few minutes and forget the wrongs we have had done to us and reflect on the wrongs we have done to others.

: So let's forget "he said she did and he can go to hell" as some of us undoubtedly will so let's forgive and forget and have a battalion smoker, get pissed and sing a few BAWDY BARRACK ROOM BALLADS as sung by THE JOCK STRAPP ENSEMBLE. Except Eskimo Nell too many verses for us old uns to remember, no doubt the colonel can though (he was a bad un lead me astray many times and taught me to drink alcohol, thank you, sir)

I've always felt in the many happy years we've known each other (53 now), that someone more important than all of us has guided your soul and spirit, and endowed you with the capacity and ability to always be available for the care of others. You only broadcast the foolhardy side but we recognise there is another dimension to you and I'm not referring to your waistline.
Mind you, if 'He' was the one that taught you to drive, I might just have a few words as well.
