I'm new on this site and I would like to say a very warm hello to everybody.
My nickname is ReinerZufall (a word play, in German it means "pure coincidence" just how I found this side), I'm a widower, almost 70 and live in a small town in Bavaria/Germany. Have worked as a deputy in order of the court and managed all the things for people who were ill or handicapped.
I don't speak good English because I'm a beginner in learning this wonderful language in my old days. So please be clement about my mistakes. I think it's a good training for my old brain to learn and read along here on this wonderful site.
Morning, I just joined this forum.
I turn 62 today and hopefully will meet a bunch of new people.
I am an avid pet lover, and I have many rescued Chihuahuas, ranging in age from 4 to 15 1/2, most were all unwanted and wound up with me, they are adorable, I love to garden, but it is hard to keep things alive in this heat.
I see there are people from all over, I live in the United States, in the south, but would love to meet as many of you as I can, and chat with you, look forward to hearing from you, hope you have a great day!
My name is Jack Fosdyke and I live in the rural backwaters of Ireland, far removed from life's rushing stream.
I function using one of those "Just as good as brains" that take a little longer to adjust to new ideas, compared to the regulation three pounders issued to nearly everyone else.
My appearance is that of a sprightly old man who has just stepped out of a Victorian music hall and wonders what he should do next....I do have a knowledge of this world but age and experience tells me that there is nought I can do to right it's wrongs.
I therefore tend to ignore life's darker underbelly and concentrate upon it's brighter, more amusing aspect. If there are any like minded persons among you with a similar outlook perhaps they would care to reply.
Thanking you all.
I've just found and joined, Silversurfer when trying to find someone I knew long ago in the late 6Os.
Her name was Jean Ferguson and she lived in Loughton, Essex, Her parents lived in Potter Heigham, Norfolk.
Rather a long shot, but grateful if anyone has any info about her. Thanks in advance.
Have just joined Silversurfers.
The place looks lovely, but it's taking me some time to find my way around.
