    Happy birthday Mrs Achtung😀
    If the caller doesn't speak immediately, I put the phone down. If it's genuine,they usually ring straight back assuming they were cut off. Computers don't.

    My wife, Sam, has asked me to post her sincere thanks for all the kindness and good wishes shown to her here and I'd like to second it. She also said that it's these little things that make her grateful that she's still around. Many thanks all.

    There's a Theresa that lives over the road from me. Can't be her though as she's more extra large than medium :#

    My son lives in South Korea and has got used to the fact that we nearly always hang up on him when he phones thinking it's a scam call and that he'll have to call twice. Occasionally, if the connection is made reasonably quickly he'll try a plaintive "Hello, please don't hang up on me!"

    My brother had a massive stroke at a similar age, so I can relate somewhat. It's wonderful to hear of your wife's recovery and love of life - happy birthday to her.

    I too have had a family member with a similar medical history.  Lovely to 'meet you' Sam :D

    Just once in while, something that looks like a scam is genuine.  

    An uncle of mine received a letter telling him there was an inheritance due to him.  He took it for a wind-up, but he really was in line for a modest legacy from a relative he barely knew.

    A friend of mine had a letter from a mail-order company she occasionally bought from, saying she had won a week's holiday for two in Singapore.  As she hadn't entered any competition, she dismissed it but the letters kept coming.  It was for real, she took her aunt and they had an unforgettable holiday.

    Not everyone out there is a money-grabbing scumbag.  Just saying.

    In my opinion older men looking at photos of young girls deserve all they get! No fool like an old fool! 
    This is harsh. I've had an email from a lovely young lady just now and she seems very taken with me. o:)

    "If U think that a single one time when we hav spotted one another is
    sufficient, then you made me feel pain. Hi there, mount, a winter has
    passed! I am certainly exhausted of touching the door handles. I feel myself
    like a worthless junk. My age is only twenty y.o., and my body zealously
    asks fo
    r your. My thoughts involving you and dreams about the delicacies you
    presented me make moist definitely not only my physical body, but
    additionally my bed. In moments I think about you, I prefer to to perform
    some things with myself. I want 2 be ur sexy horse! If U still didn't
    recognize me, then go and look at my pix in personal profile, possibly we'll
    re-do that night."
