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

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!

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.

Three in a row :-) Talk to the man someone, stop sucking up to Billow and welcome our visitor properly.

Wise, grown-up, responsible, you know all the usual things!

Who's got the bottle opener?

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 :-)

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. :-)

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!

Chimp et al.
I've found Billow and had a word, or 40, on her thread under 'Masters'. It's addressed to women over 50 or something similar.
Wait for the missiles! Could be fun.

I've not had a decent pint all week so no prizes for guessing my next destination.
(But not for about half an hour.I want to see what comes out of the US).

(Psssst, yes I Ronnie is me, had to use the edit facility to change humour to humor, lol! What are we like? Don't answer that Wind in the Billows!)

Sorry to have missed you foggy, of course we'll have to call you Ol' Foggers or something. Do pop in again sometime, we often have muffins at 3pm.
