Goodbye OAL. It's nice that you took the time for a proper goodbye. Sometimes people just disappear and you never know what happens to them.
I wish you a long and happy life and keep banging those drums.
Cheers! *raises glass of cider*

Good luck OAL - will miss your uniqueness, advice and general all-round caring loveliness. BCC will not need to invest in a new server now that you're not going to be posting 10 times a day....... you've still beaten my paltry efforts so far - I will keep posting on here until I hit 1475 posts so that you'll always be a winner in my eyes.

The very bestest wishes for the future to you xxxx

Re: thats all folks. Goodbye and thankyou.

well the old is cos 64 is not young, and lumpy was cos I had just found my lump when i first logged on. You are right I dont feel old, I am vain enough to hide my freedom pass in an oyster card cover

Re: thats all folks. Goodbye and thankyou.

1476 posts! WOW!
I'm going to miss you popping up all over the forums - and now I'll never know just WHY you chose your username! Never having met you I can't comment on the Lumpy, but Old??!! NEVER, judging by the photo of you drumming with your band.I'm older than you & only think of myself as Middle-aged(maybe?)on a bad day.
They say having BC changes your life, so can I suggest you reinvent yourself as YoungandFeisty?
Thanks for everything & best of luck!

I shall be very sorry not to see you posting on here anymore OldandLumpy. I've really enjoyed your posts and I'm very grateful for all the information you've posted on research and diet thread about sourcing meat and eggs etc - that's helped me a lot.
I haven't done an order yet from abel and cole but when/if I do I will make sure you're name is mentioned.

take care and I wish you all good things for the future. Elinda x

Sorry to see you go OAL but so pleased you can leave the club. I'm still pretty much a newbie and you were one of the first people to offer support when I was fist diagnosed. Thank you, it was great to hear your experiences and advice. Good luck and take care

Re: thats all folks. Goodbye and thankyou.

All the very best AOL, you were the first person to acknowledge my post after initial diagnosis and pre-surgery. You told me to keep doing the exercises, what bra to buy and to ask questions, however silly you may think they are. Well after 2 lots of surgery I am still doing the exercises, still wearing my lovely soft non-underwired bra and still asking questions.

I wish you all the very best and I won't say enjoy life to the full, because it sounds at though you do already.

Go girl!!!!

Re: thats all folks. Goodbye and thankyou.

Hi and bye OAL. I've been kind of thinking the same. Wondering if I'm using the site as some kind of continual reminder, and maybe time to move on. You've been great to know. My other Susan Love fan. I moved her book from by bedside cabinet to the bookcase in the office just last week - maybe another sign.

It is like a wee bit of an addiction, I know. OH gets a wee bit tired of me sitting with laptop, going from Ebay to Facebook to BCC most nights.

But just wanted to say - have a happy life with lots of drumming - and wine!!

That's the sort of laughter that's good for the soul. Nothing text book, slightly warped but just very silly and funny.
So glad you have been and are to be gone to the other side of treatment. I remember you joining us. I'll be able to move on one day, but still pop in and grumble, winge and moan.

thats all folks. Goodbye and thankyou.

well tomorrow is 5 months since i found my lump and then found this site. Apart from tomaxifen, my treatment has finished and I realise that I dont realy need the support this forum gave me any more.

From day one, it is this site that has kept me sane. At first there was valuable information form those going through the same thing, then support as I had little problems and hic-cups. There have been posts that make me laugh out loud and been a good start to the day. And then those that made me cry and made me realise I have got off lightly.

then I went through a period where answering other peoples posts helped me so much. Dont know why, but I really needed to welcome new people and answer all sorts of questions.Apparantly I have posted 1476 times, thats nearly 10 a day!

But now I hardly log on, and when I do, I no longer feel the need to hit the keyboard. so I thought rather than fade away I would say goodbye properly. I wont mention anyone in particular, but there are so many people on here that feel like old friends. And I would like to say thank you all for making this period in my life bearable.

i wish all the established troupers, and any newbies the very best . Its not been a club i would have ever wanted to join but the members have made it one I could not have done without.
