Hi Beady.
Wait until you see JVQ go off on one. Your post is a mere footnote in comparison. :lol:

Welcome, BeadyDragon! Image
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

Welcome Beady! :D Take no notice of pooh - he's great with the one-liners, but hasn't got enough puff to his passion for more considered and weighty depositions :twisted:

Well here comes the truth - I have never read any of Terry's books. I joined this group after the Dimbleby Lecture, as i found it so moving, and because it is a subject so close to my heart.

My English husband and myself moved to my native Switzerland last year (I spend 40 years in UK) - we live in an old farm in the mountains and would be happy to talk or write to him, in total discretion.

Can I suggest that you try one? They are all very entertaining and many have a more serious theme as well - plus after 40 years in the UK you should get most of the jokes. Theres a topic somewhere discussing which is best to start with ...

A simple message to Sir Terry:

Thank you for assuring me that I am not alone in this universe with weird thinking and a twisted point of view on humanity as a whole.

Thank you for giving me the chance to read a single sentence over and over just for the joy of laughing over and over.

Thank you for lending me your brain in which I could immerse and have the opportunity not to take life, universe and everything too serious. Including myself. Oh, and death.

I wish you and your family all the best in the future, and hope that the love and support by us, your "fanbois" could give the strength to fight Alzheimer with success.

If you have read the other threads on the forum, you can be certain in the knowledge that you are not alone! :lol:
