Not quite Wee Piglet (Psst, Billows is back)

Hello foggygoggles! Nice to meet you.
30/01/2003 at 17:49
And you as well, thank you!

Peeps, may I introduce Foggygoggles, a friendly and welcoming RW Forumer from across the pond!

Foggygoggles, may I introduce the wrinkly and/or lunatic fringe of the UK RW Forums?

<wee piglet bows politely to both contingents>

Where? Where? Let me in......

Welcome foggygoggles.

Eeerm... Foggy do you know anybody called Compo?
30/01/2003 at 17:52
Welcome foggy,or should that be howdy? You've arrived just in time for snow. Tell me, do Americans have a "Sense of Humour"?

Hello, wrinkly/lunatic fringe!

<foggygoggles tries to bow but trips over feet and lands face-down on the floor>

Great, just had a message to say we're gridlocked in due to the snow... will just have to stay here for another 15 minutes
30/01/2003 at 17:54
Too true, sadly, why don't you have pics? Is it because you are all super-bods?
30/01/2003 at 17:55
Lovely - fetch the beer out the cupboard HW and lets welcome the newboy!
30/01/2003 at 17:55
Howdy, hiya, whazzup are all accepted greetings and salutations from our ahem fair country

Compo, no, I've not had the pleasure.

Many of us are humour-impaired...

Super-bods? I wish! I think we are afraid that we will be stalked by a psychopath or something. We sometimes take personal security to an extreme...but sadly it is probably warranted.

What is a "mature" runner? We call them "masters" over here, I think. It is supposed to connote experience and wisdom, though, not age- although it typically means over 30.
30/01/2003 at 18:01
Three in a row :-) Talk to the man someone, stop sucking up to Billow and welcome our visitor properly.
30/01/2003 at 18:02
Wise, grown-up, responsible, you know all the usual things!

Who's got the bottle opener?
30/01/2003 at 18:03
I'm trying but my fingers are cold....

Mature - as in cheese, a bit ripe, gets smellier as it ages, kinda grows on you, rather like mould. An acquired taste?

JJ may be able to provide a better explanation, but he wears CK underpants so I wouldn't trust everything he says :-)
30/01/2003 at 18:05
Well, there isn't a precise definition of "mature" runner, but JJ (who started the thread) was referring to age.

30!!! <piglet coughs and falls to the ground in alarm!!!> I thought it was older than that!

Here's the context in which the mature runners thread began. You'll see it's a bit of a giggle :-)

Sorry to be a party pooper, but the cars ouside are finally moving, so I'm going to make a dsah for home before the invetable accidents close everything down. If I get back safely I'll log in tonight to see "what's occuring".

Nice to see you Foggy, do give our best wishes to your chums in Baltimore. :-)
30/01/2003 at 18:10
I see now! I am struck by how clever and polite your forum is. Very nice!
30/01/2003 at 18:12
Have a safe trip home!

I must get back to work myself. It's been nice chatting with you good people. Do drop by again if the urge ever strikes you!
