    o/t. FAO Brin and Wendun

    Just confirming our meet up tomorrow. The weather looks bad so maybe we値l go for a pint instead? Is there any chance of a lift from the Cavalier at Ravenfield at the later time of 12:00 ? If not I値l get a taxi to the Brecks for 10:00 as planned.

    Sorry to hijack the thread.

    Good to meet you on Sunday Sota. Small world and all that. I'd have gone for a ramble (pint more likely) tomorrow had it not been for that bind called work.

    Wish you a safe journey back unless we bump into each other at the pub over the weekend. 👍👍

    sota, I知 waiting to fly back from Kos at this very moment. Cracking weather here as expected.
    I have seen the forecast for the weather back home tomorrow and no it doesn稚 look good.

    If you prefer I can meet up with you at the Cavalier at 12.00 no problem. Not sure what Wendun or his brother are doing?

    Good to hear a manly voice Sota but it may just have been at the side of Brins that made it sound that way. I hope you got to see the inside!

    Yes great to meet up Brin and thanks again for the shirt, that was very nice of you. Had a great tour round some of the old hunting grounds and a good old chat. I even got to speak to Frog at last lol. It was great to meet you too on Sunday, MonopolyDog, it was a bit surreal how you recognized me ha ha. As for Wendun, I could easily have wasted a day of my holiday here thanks to you so I won稚 be wasting any more time on you fella.

    Glad you two had good day down memory lane. As for Wendun, were you in touch with him via the PMs on here? He hasn't posted on the MB since May 27th so either something serious must have come up or despite sounding sincere, he's proven that he really was a figment of his own imagination. Only he will be able to answer that one if/when he surfaces.

    CAM, on discussing wenduns no show, I stated to sota that having offered up all of the information to meet etc and wanting to bring along his Brother and not showing, that it was indeed one of two things:

    1. Something personal stopped him showing,

    2. If he really is another multi then he's a cu**. I'd like to think it was point number 1 and trust all is well for him.

    As for the day out, sota and myself covered some old grounds and it brought back loads of memories for us both. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Great that you two managed to make the day and puzzling that Wendun didn't.

    I've had PM contact with him in the past and he was always responsive and seemed genuine. It does sound like something went wrong at his end but, even then, odd that he didn't at least leave you a message on here to say he couldn't make it. I believe he was coming over the Pennines to Rotherham to see family anyway.

    Hi CT, yes very strange turn of events indeed. left us both asking the question if wendun actually exists but you appear to know him well.

    I too was surprised that he could have left a PM but alas, nothing. Puzzling???

    Don't know him personally, Brin, but we had some PM correspondence when I was looking for a long lost friend of my sister's last year and he did a bit of local sleuthing for me. (Actually, looking back at the messages, it was Wendun in his Monty_Rhodes guise at the time so I can't be 100% that it was the same person!)

    It's interesting to read the original thread on how you were planning the get-together. Wendun made the early running to meet and suggested the 13th or 14th because he was originally planning to drive over from Lancashire on the 13th and staying at The Brecks. He'd suggested you meet on the 14th. You and Sota then started talking about perhaps the 13th instead. He did come back then and say he could also make the 13th. However he never mailed again after that while you and Sota were firming up times. While the absence of any pushback from him suggested he was OK with what was being arranged, there was never an actual message from him confirming he was OK with the arrangements...

    Having said that, he should have let you know what he was doing and seems to have let you down...

    Indeed my friend indeed but, there may be underlying reasons why as previously suggested

    Did Easy and Early join the board about the time Wendun went missing?

    He openly admitted that he was Monty and returned to being Wendun, can't remember if that was because he remembered the logon or because the ban on that account expired.
