I must have forum addiction. My morning is ruined when I try to come here and find out that the forum isn't available. Its especially depressing when the cause is the actions of some low life twit. If they think they are that smart they ought to get a real job at a software company and make the big bucks. But nooooooooooooooooooo they have to mess up the lives of us hard working honest people who happen to have productive hobbies. OK I'm gonna get off my soapbox now. Thank Basil for staying the course. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers.gif

I hate it when this forum goes down. Then I'm forced to go on to ebay and the LBC catalog sites, which is starting to get expensive. But I am productive then, so I guess that it ain't all bad.

While the forum was briefly down, I went surfing (shouldn't say that too loudly) and bumped into another British car forum, this one dedicated to the MGB. Man, you think we are addicted! Those guys (and gals) were heavy into "chat". Many of them are on this forum as well. Some of them have a grand total of over 10,000 posts! I thought I was bad. When do they sleep?

That's funny because if you read their forum for a while they complain about how "chatty" it is over here. A couple of people on the old Triumph E-mail list complain about the chatty-ness here too.

Can't please all the people all of the time I guess. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Yes... my forum addiction is so bad that I end up lurking at the MGB forum too. AND the Triumph email list.

But when I need an answer I always come back to my buddy Basil because I don't have to worry about wording everything JUST right to avoid a flaming by the crotchety.... and there are enough of us nuts hanging around all the time that I'll get an answer within an hour tops.

Sometimes you have to be quick...

I spied a freshly posted question about something that was rather obscure & a minute later 2 people beat me answering it.

I have been trying to remember Dobie's girlfriend. Or more accurately she was always after him and he always resisted.

I am not addicted to this forum. I just seem to find myself here a lot of the time. If there is a 12 step program for this I do not want to know about it.

Rich, it is not so much denial, more that I enjoy the fever and am avoiding anything that resembles a cure! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Zelda is her name.

Nope - Zelda was the one that had a crush on Dobie...

Dobie liked Thalia.

Mickey, you are right, sometimes the cobwebs are a little thick. That was a fun show.

I saw a rerun a while back - or maybe it was a special on the show (cobwebs here, too!). The show was a bit ahead of its time, but I always enjoyed it. Especially when Dobie would do a monologue about what was transpiring in the story. Oh, and him sitting next to the statue, "The Thinker". Good stuff.

We may be a little older but you will be surprised just how quick that happens.

There is one thing we do have and that is all the memories of what it was like when these cars were new and the fun we had before the traffic and laws got so crazy.

Some of us have written of some of those times and I hope more do the same. The stories are part of the history of these LBC's.

Sorry, I will step down from the soapbox now.

Interest, so that is what it was. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Last year I visited my aunt in a nursing facility in Burbank and who should join us at the lunch table but Annette's mom! Cool. Poor Annette has MS in the worse kind of way though. She is the reason to this day that I will only eat Skippy peanut butter. Who says advertisements don't work?
