That's great news. I am so glad that he is back again.

6 Jan, 2014

 

Me too WR, he has made my day!

6 Jan, 2014

 

Pleased to hear that Karen...

6 Jan, 2014

 

That's good news but who's Billy ????????????????

6 Jan, 2014

 

Glad he's back. I was worried that I hadn't heard from him for quite a while and missed his witty blogs. thanks for letting us know.

6 Jan, 2014

 

Yippee!!!!!!! I had also missed him and his sense of humour, thanks Karen....

6 Jan, 2014

 

He has a new name...laithe58 :)

6 Jan, 2014

 

That is very good news!

6 Jan, 2014

 

Was thinking about him the other day. I was going to get one of our drivers from the weeg to drop a wee line to him. Don't have to now.
Welcome back Billy :)

6 Jan, 2014

 

I'd missed him too. Thanks for giving us his new name Karen.

'Mouldy' lived alone at the top of a block of flats, in Glasgow, suffered from lung trouble. Used to post photographs of his garden area taken from a great height.
Am pleased to hear he is better.
We all go through bad patches.
Hope he continues to contribute as Spring comes
round again.

Welcome back Billy :o)))

7 Jan, 2014

 

Not sure who Billy (Mouldy) is, but if it makes you happy they're back...then I'm happy too.

7 Jan, 2014

 

Thanks Karen, hope you are getting some lovely sunshine over there. Have sent Mouldy a message, hope he is well. :O) Enjoy your holiday xxxxx

7 Jan, 2014

 

What does laithe58 mean - even assuming Mouldy was born in 1958 - we are left with 'laithe' I prefer Mouldy.
Not that he was.

7 Jan, 2014

 

Sunshine is good mum! although it has clouded over most afternoons so far! and it's going to chuck it down on Thursday. However, I shall be busy writing a blog to keep me busy. I went to the botanic gardens this morning and took hundreds of pics! There is also a very old and famous orchid garden near here, which I shall be visiting on a sunny day.

7 Jan, 2014

 

Thanks waddy! I thought 'everyone' knew Mouldy. he disappeared just before I moved house after giving me some good moving tips ...he used to work in removals. He is very kind, and very funny, and I was worried about him, As he suffers with ill health, so I am really happy that he has come back on line. :)

7 Jan, 2014

 

I suppose liathe is Gaelic !

8 Jan, 2014

 

Look forward to the blog Karen. :O)

8 Jan, 2014

 

I'll omit the details about the tummy bug for you Mum!

8 Jan, 2014

 

Well, hullo, Ladies!!! ;-)
Thank you, one and all, for your welcome back and especially to you, Karen, for this particularly flattering blog to announce my return to the site through the medium of sprouts. LOL.
You hit the nail on the head, Diane...it's Gaelic for Greybeard, as I couldn't translate Mouldy, sadly. :-(

8 Jan, 2014

 

:))

8 Jan, 2014

 

Hope your tummy is settled down by now Karen. :O)

8 Jan, 2014

 

How clever of you Diane!
Poor Karen, I hope its better too.

8 Jan, 2014

 

So Mouldy, you're sneaking back under a pseudonym, but we're all on to you. Why the change of name? Mouldy suited you so well 8~p :-)))

8 Jan, 2014

 

I was wondering that as well, soon as I read it I checked to make sure the Mouldy blogs were still here....

8 Jan, 2014

 

I 'm so pleased ! Its not the same on here without him !

8 Jan, 2014

 

I've been unable to login, BA & Lincs, hence the new A.K.A.
The GOY techies appear unable to solve the problem?!!!

9 Jan, 2014

 

That's happened to someone else, think Snoopdog or Snoopy now called erm...I forget, no, I mean I can't remember what his new name is:-))

9 Jan, 2014

 

Well isn't that weird, I also had problems with goy last autumn for a while Billy, nearly threw my laptop out of the window, forked out for a new one just before xmas only to find out afterwards that it wasn't the laptop at all, I sometimes appear as Iciar as do some other members and we cannot solve that one either.....

9 Jan, 2014

 

Isn't Snoopdog still Snoopdog? He was last week.

9 Jan, 2014

 

Well, as BA says...I'm still Mouldy ;-)

10 Jan, 2014

 

and here I am in the flesh to prove it. LOL.
I somehow managed to disable the cookie programme on my phone, which disbarred me from entering the site.
94 messages to catch up on.
Oh dear, I'd best get my skates on, as tempis is fugiting like a maniac.

10 Jan, 2014

 

Mouldy/Laithe ..
are you twins ? ... or triplets ? ...

10 Jan, 2014

 

Good luck with catching up Mouldy, now you really have to get your skates on lol. :O) Are you going to stay as Mouldy or as your new twin Laithe? lol what a dilema!

10 Jan, 2014

 

Stera, Snoop dog is now Snoopy he lost himself just like Mouldy. Mouldy, perhaps you could let Snoopy, who was Snoopdog, know what you did to get back to your old self....or were you drunk at the time?:-))

10 Jan, 2014

 

Oh my! This is very confusing! I hope I never lose myself like mouldy, snoopy and Lincslass! :)

10 Jan, 2014

 

Me too Karen, I wonder where I would go? There must be a place for lost GOY members, probably full of odd socks too:-(

10 Jan, 2014

 

Lol! that must be where Iciar hides out.

10 Jan, 2014

 

Mouldy it is, at least while I have the 'accept cookies' enabled on my mobile...had to get the young'uns in the shop to do it for me.
While in limbo, I found a pair of your old tights BA.
They're just right, stuffed with moss, as a draught excluder for my e-shed.
Who shouted "How wide is the door?"?
Apologise immediately...you know what a sensitive wee soul BA is! ;-)

11 Jan, 2014

 

LOL :o) Bet I can beat the width BA!!!

11 Jan, 2014

 

MOULDY!! I bet Those tights are not actually BA's, but some her auntie gave her to use in the garden! ;)

11 Jan, 2014

 

Oh, Mouldy, is it now ! I've just put Laithe as a favourite ! I'll be getting dizzy ! Stay still ! lol.

11 Jan, 2014

 

Oh Rose I think I already have as well, he'll just have to work twice as hard, lol....

11 Jan, 2014

 

it's ok ladies, from henceforth he shall be known as 'mouldy greybeard'!

11 Jan, 2014

 

Perhaps he has a split personality? I'm sure the nice Mr Laithe would not have mentioned a lady's legs ...but that horrible Dr Mouldy is capable of anything:-((

11 Jan, 2014

 

:)

11 Jan, 2014

 

Welcome back Mouldy. Strange you could not get in to your page as I keep getting messages saying I should make you a favourite. You are everybodies favourite by the sounds of it. I'm glad to hear you are well.

11 Jan, 2014

 

Oh yes, Karen, I like the sound of that !

12 Jan, 2014

 

Who mentioned BA's legs?
Wasn't me, I promise. Lol.
Thanks, Scotsgran...means a lot, but I'm not sure BA would agree.
She's called off our engagement. Again. ;-)
A rose thorn is a rose thorn by any other name, Karen.
Mouldy or Laithe, whatever suits is okay by me.

13 Jan, 2014

 

lol :O)

13 Jan, 2014

 

No wonder I've called off our engagement you philandering Dr Mouldy, you keep flirting with that Karen >:-[ (angry face)

13 Jan, 2014

 

(Innocent face)!

13 Jan, 2014

 

(Hard-done-by-with-just-a-soupcon-of-bewilderment-look)

14 Jan, 2014

 

You're as bad as that Francoise Hollande .... and I'm keeping the engagement ring Ha!:-)))

14 Jan, 2014

 

Je ne compre pas any Francoise from Holland or anywhere else, BA, I swear. Lol.
The ring? 'Course you can keep it.
The frilly thingamyjigs, too? I s'pose so.
Now I'll have to find something else to frost-proof the plants. ;-)

15 Jan, 2014

 

I'm using the frilly thingumies as extra insulation on the shed, they come down far enough to act as curtains too:-))

15 Jan, 2014

 

Lol!

15 Jan, 2014

 

Yes, they do, don't they?
Money well spent. ;-)

15 Jan, 2014

 

lol!!!! :o) this conversation is so funny. :O)

16 Jan, 2014

 

Why have these knickers got three leg holes, BA? ;-)

16 Jan, 2014

 

I say I say I say .... I don't know ...why have those knickers got three leg holes Mouldy? :/ (puzzled look)

17 Jan, 2014

 

I agree with Barbara .. this thread is very funny ... Jake the Peg has been looking for those 3-hole undies for years!

17 Jan, 2014

 

And as for these cup things with tassels...this gardening lark is a real eye-opener, innit? %-)
Bird-scarers, maybe...
I thought all we had to do was potter about in a garden for a couple of hours, but my education continues, unabated. ;-)

18 Jan, 2014

 

I have come to the conclusion that I am the only sane one on here :-} (smug smile)

18 Jan, 2014

 

Mouldy, there was a prog. On the telly a few years back...or perhaps it was actually some pics on here...I can't remember now, but a lady had taken to using her bras as planters...or perhaps better described as 'hanging D cups'...very erm....novel! :))

18 Jan, 2014

 

I found a pic...see above! ;)

18 Jan, 2014

 

Oh so that's where they've gone:-)

18 Jan, 2014

 

(Whistling nonchantly)...
They've filled out nicely, haven't they?

19 Jan, 2014

 

Lol! :)

19 Jan, 2014

 

BA, you terrified poor JohnJoe, waving that shotgun around at me on his allotment, you naughty girl. ;-)

19 Jan, 2014

 

Well you shouldn't have hid behind him you chicken:-))

19 Jan, 2014

 

Cluck-cluck.
