    It's been several years since I first tuned in here. Some close and valued friendships have evolved from it. I quit a couple of years ago during a nasty dispute that was occurring but returned after things settled down again.
    I have, like a couple of old members been absent since the kerfuffle before Christmas. I take the risk and liberty of using names. Kev and Diesel did the same. Following communication with these two great guys, there are solid indications that, like me, after admitting they miss the site, they will likely return as active members. One suggested he may not be welcomed. I again took the liberty of suggesting he would be most welcome.
    But what of the future?
    It seems behind the scenes there are people (I don't call them members) who are hell bent on causing damage and causing trouble. Should anyone have contact from them, I suggest no reply be given. Should they contact by phone as they have done; QUICKLY hang up.
    They are not wanted and certainly not needed here. Without them this site can continue for a very long time.
    With no TBX there's a hole out there I keep stepping in. I miss the communication, the friendships but most of all I miss something few forum sites have. Namely, there is great respect for fellow members within TBX. I group ladies like our Missniss amongst the fellows. Hope she doesn't mind. I think it's most excellent to have her opening up about the difficulties she faces and nothing but good can come of it. The more people who share a load means less each has to carry. Hang in there Sandy.
    Unfortunately, this has become a bit drawn out as most of my stuff is, and I thank you for your patience if you've got this far.
    I look forward to a continuation with you guys. Regards, Noel.

    We might well be a collection of old farts, but with a wealth of collective shared wisdom. Cheers, Lyall.

    X4. I was wondering where all u guys had gone, good to c u back. from maybe youngest middle age/old fart.
    Write as many big posts as u want Noel always a pleasure to read, look at how many I send, hope the taxatation office doesn't start putting a tax on them, backdated of course!
    I have not had any phone calls from whoever the DH is causing trouble probably a fishermen hater, Would be a good idea to document calls from the DH.
    cheers

    Hi guys.

    I've had contact from a couple of members wondering what's happening as I've not been on board.
    The interest and concern is well noted I assure you. I thank those involved sincerely.
    I have book presentations at three libraries to cope with. These involve a minimum of an hour address and producing a slide show (power point) to match. I am not supposed to use a copy at other venues. This involves close to ten days preparation, starting about 6.00am to finish around 5.30pm, and that's without a stop. Of course I'm crazy. It would have to be worth thousands which it's certainly not. They will be finished tomorrow; then I have to go to the three towns to distribute promo posters and talk to the libraries about final details. Will be tied up for around two weeks. Then, I have to do the actual author talks. Hang in there; I hope to get back when the world stops spinning quite so madly. I really don't need that much pressure at the moment. Regards, N

    Busy, busy, busy hey? Here I was thinking that you had gone off fishing somewhere and you were keeping it all to yourself :rolleyes:.

    I don't envy you Noel, any daily workload more complicated than feeding the dog each morning is about all I'm happy to deal with this time of year - damn heat is becoming rather taxing.

    Hang in there mate.
