The APB thread - or Where are they now?

Post by Philip Chidlow »

I thought it'd be a good time to (for want of a better phrase) chase up some of our seemingly lapsed, 'gone quiet' members (some might've been booted off so in those cases.. oooops! :oops:) :
So, to start the ball rolling...

Anyone know what happened to Mr. B, Oscar, Stinkwheel, Saint Gaz...?

Let's not forget those who frequent this Forum less than they used to: Mr. Ian Fearn and of late Mr. Stuart Hedges. (And Terry, where art thou?)

I'm here, occasionally. And that not by choice. Would be much more often left to me.

A few months ago I started riding a second horse, the caring business, and that with a crap agency. I needed to make good some severe financial losses incurred by people not paying my accounts for computer work.

Have now joined another outfit, a Christian Hospital Trust which has been running for 150 years - they have branched into home care which is what I do. This last few days have been working a full shift with one agency and doing 10 hours training with the other and so time has been a little limited.

In the next weeks I expect to move entirely to the Christian Trust, work less hours for more money and do a better job by the old people I look after. That way I'll have more time for me. And I'd like to be more involved with the forum.

Right now, I've just done 13 hours training and some work, and am going off for a night shift so as you'll see, time is not now on my side. But as with all things,nothing stays the same.

Shortly I'll be back in my harness, not some other.

If this sounds a bit disjointed,forgive me,I'm totally knackered.

Good luck Terry.

Stu's still alive but is staying in Brizzle at the moment, not sure about about Stinkwheel though, he's been quiet for a long time now.

Dont know what happened to Oscar either..

I've not been on for months now, this is a computer generated response!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Is very much alive, kicking and still looks in on here from time to time, bt has now gone over to the dark side of LRO - namely 200TDi Disco ownership, which is keeping him busy and stocked up in sheet metal and welding rods.

Stinkwheel is going strong elsewhere (I think). While we're here what happened to PiLsY, BX Bandit and Barnsley BXer amongst others?

M: send my regards to Mr B when you next speak or message him please.

I know that Stewart (Oily!) moved onto vehicles of the 2-wheeled variety, after selling his "Hooligan" to someone from across the water in Ireland!
I visited him around that time, about a year ago (?), and all was well, and he was enjoying motorbiking!!

I have returned.

Most upset that none of my grandmother's neighbours had any open wireless connections while I was away in Bristol!
