Wink Happy to Know your there!

Hi'ya all.
just signed articles on this site, so far very much enjoying it,
Back from Taz to the old country on family matters, Don't have web at home, had no call, will rectify on return.
Whats been going on over here? who's holed this country below the water line?
I'd heard things were bad but i didn't realise how bad!
Somethings got to be done and soon.

Happier days now! 1968 to 84 In MN with NZSco, BP, P&O before heading south for better climes. Made it to 'llandarcy/ Neath' as a tanker boy for BP Never looked back, consider myself very lucky to have done so much, seen so much and met so many great and colourful characters, (Got paid for it as well)
There was always the down side of course overbearing 2nd swd's & Cat officers (OK Norman!BP) but the good far, far outweighed the bad,
Anyway I'll keep login on and hopefully make a few old contacts, maybe an odd visit before i have to head home,can't enjoy myself for too long.

Thanks for the time. Te'ra.

Tillo.

Cool Welcome

Tillo,

A warm welcome to the site and I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience!
You will certainly spark many happy memories when you have a chance to explore our threads and, who knows, you may even re-establish contact with old shipmates.

What's wrong with you man ........ it's only a wee bit liquid sunshine and a puff of wind! Have you gone soft since you went 'down under'?

Get that PC in Taz organised because you will be addicted to SN before you set off homeward!

Good luck!

Hi Tillo and welcome to the site.

You don't way which "old country" you are referring to - is that Australia or the UK? The latter doesn't seem so bad to me - but maybe that is because I have been here all the time and didn't notice the change you seem to have seen.

Enjoy the site!

Regards,

Brian
