    A this time of year a bit of reminiscing doesn’t go amiss and thoughts turn to those members who no longer post. I recently noticed that “bionic rusty” aka Wayne hadn’t posted for a while.

    we did have a cameo appearance from Winston that eased my mind but his short return reminded me of Trev who was an administer for a while. Me Trev and Winston joined the forum at similar times and had a lot in common and shared a fair bit of banter.

    Which members posts are you missing?

    Great post, Brydo. Trev, really miss having the banter with him. I often wonder if he is okay.

    72 Dudes don’t do “book face” but would happily look at the xc40 forum.

    Markymate yes Trev is a real miss I still can’t believe he left without a goodbye.

    A difficult and challenging year for many, some of whom, myself included have lost family to Covid. I hope to be able to post again on a more regular basis in 2021 which may come as welcome new to some, in not all! I extend seasonal greetings to all.

    When I joined years ago there were 2 moderators, Just Saying (later JS) and Pops, who were later joined by Trev. All did an excellent job and I remember sponsoring Trev for a run or something. I’d been away from the forum for quite a while until recently, so I’ve lost track as to who the moderators are now. I recognise some of the user names from back then, but many are relatively new and some of the regulars back then are no longer here, but I’m struggling to remember user names. This site continues to provide an invaluable resource and between us all we have a vast experience of cars and the Motability scheme. I find this particularly useful when wanting to establish the practicalities (or otherwise) of cars for those with disabilities, so it remains unique in that respect.

    Martinod I think that is to be expected, they say time is a great healer but that is little comfort to those suffering life changing loss like you.

    Is what I write Brydo, a poem, or is it a rhyme
    You know that I ask myself this question from time to time
    ‘Cause usually , I just throw some words up in the air e
    Where they land, well, I don’t really care

     

    Why, well sometimes I may have something relevant to say
    But Brydo, they are just my own thoughts put in to words at the end of the day
    sometimes , my words may just have some meaning
    Whereas to others they may seem obscure , even demeaning

     

    So, Brydo, is what I write a poem or is it a rhyme
    Perhaps I’ll ask you again, just one more time
    But only after you’ve read my stories in verse
    Written BTW only to take my mind off this Disability curse

    How have I been Brydo, well –

    Lockdown , Locked up and Locked in ,it’s been so boring wouldn’t you say
    Like me, you must be fed up with watching paint dry and not going out to play
    It’s been driving me crazy and I feel feel like making ‘a run’
    Clinically Vulnerable oldie I may be but not too old I say to have me some fun

    And now that the vaccine has unexpectedly been early to arrive
    It means that us old folk can sneak away & drive
    No, not as fast as our all terrain Mobility scooters will go
    No, not at a heady 8 mph with foot flat on the floor

    BUT back in the Tiguan with horses one hundred and fifty
    Down the M4 & back at Mach 0.114 , yup. That’s quite nifty
    We’ve seen some family again after an 18 month break
    But missing our Danish grandkids growing up makes the heart ache

    But boredom is as unhealthy as the Virus they say
    And life’s too short anyway not to laugh & not to play
    So’s let’s have us some fun again , it’s about bloody time
    And I’m looking forward to being too shattered to finish this damned rhyme

    Hope you and yours are keeping well?

    Brilliant Mike. The Pam Ayres of whichmobilitycar.😀

    Thanks Chris,

    Something from Pam Ayres which sums it up so well –

    I’m normally a social girl
    I love to meet my mates
    But lately with the virus
    We can’t go out the gates.

    You see, we are the ‘oldies’ now
    We need to stay inside
    If they haven’t seen us for a while
    They’ll think we’ve upped and died.

    They’ll never know the things we did
    Before we got this old
    There wasn’t any Facebook
    So not everything was told.

    We may seem sweet old ladies
    Who would never be uncouth
    But we grew up in the 60s –
    If you only knew the truth!

    There was sex and drugs and rock ‘n roll
    The pill and miniskirts
    We smoked, we drank, we partied
    And were quite outrageous flirts.

    Then we settled down, got married
    And turned into someone’s mum,
    Somebody’s wife, then nana,
    Who on earth did we become?

    We didn’t mind the change of pace
    Because our lives were full
    But to bury us before we’re dead
    Is like a red rag to a bull!

    So here you find me stuck inside
    For 4 weeks, maybe more
    I finally found myself again
    Then I had to close the door!

    It didnt really bother me
    I’d while away the hour
    I’d bake for all the family
    But I’ve got no flaming flour

    Now Netflix is just wonderful
    I like a gutsy thriller
    I’m swooning over Idris
    Or some random sexy killer.

    At least I’ve got a stash of booze
    For when I’m being idle
    There’s wine and whiskey, even gin
    If I’m feeling suicidal!

    So let’s all drink to lockdown
    To recovery and health
    And hope this awful virus
    Doesn’t decimate our wealth.

    We’ll all get through the crisis
    And be back to join our mates
    Just hoping I’m not far too wide
    To fit through the flaming gates
