  • For a moment there I thought I was reading an obituary but it was just blatant advertising!

    Good luck with your business and your website Gigi. When can we expect your message boards to be up and running?

  • Far too busy for that LOL! now spending most mornings in some queue or other in Santa Cruz or at the doctors or hospital with clients-  translating pays slightly better than web mastering  ;D ;D ;D I'm hanging around the boards long enough to get "Dolly Diver" up and running

  • Well blow me down.

    I've seen the end of a few "era's" on the LG.com message boards - but I didn't think you would be one!  

    Best of luck though.

    Yours, always,

    RW  :)

    (Long Live: Gigi, Tamara Tom, Blue (my lover), Mary Whitehouse, Brian, the one and only El Obs, Los Gigs Kid, and lots of others!)

  • The real RW would be turning in his grave at this  attempt at identity theft. There is no doubt in my mind that the poor soul has shuffled off his mortal coil. What other explanation could there be for his long absence, given that he was a seemingly  incurable  addict of this website. 

    Edward, I postulate that this impostor posterquote s, posthumous posts are the work of our mischievous friend (the pain in the posterior) who should desist from his deception post-haste so as to preserve the real RWquote s memory for posterity.

    I'm afraid that RW still lives on, I'm one of them annoying buggers who'll probably live forever - but the sentiment is appreciated Falstaff!!

    Nice to know I was missed Mr Bear... things took a downturn around these here parts which left a bit of a funny taste in my mouth.. but I always "lurk" and may even pop my two penneth in a bit more.

    As for my own descent upon Los Gigiantics itself... thats a long story which also led to my illusiveness.  A lot changed in my life over the last twelve months (well everything changed), mostly by choice.  But I would never retire from "the village".

    Glad everyone is well, best wishes for a delightful weekend!

    RW  ;D

  • A bit mean isn't it?  Was that said on the basis that I am actually RW or that you still think I am an imposter?

  • ldblquote Get a lifedblquote  was RWquote s much used catchphrase. What I really meant to say, was ldblquote Get a life, but not RWquote sdblquote . I think your joke is in bad taste.

  • Now i'm confused some more - i've obviously been away too long!  Anyway I am now shutting down to have a nice weekend away from it all, so i shall look forward to reading more on Monday or Tuesday.  Falstaff if you want to drop me a private message with your email address or something i'd be happy to converse directly as I dont want you thinking you have an imposter on the boards.  It really is me, probably a more mellow version than you used to get but its still RW!  Have fun gang!   :)

  • I believe it's the real RW. ( I recognise the smell of the perfume/aftershave) I guess you have been off the site for possibly the same reason as me - but from a previous posting of yours earlier in this thread, anyone who wishes me a long life (as you did) deserves to be believed.

    I wanted to be the Cincinnati Kid - but couldn't spell it

  • At last, with the help of Google, I have finally tracked down the real RW. The camera never lies and here is conclusive proof that Sebastian is, as I suspected, an unscrupulous RW impostor.

    Mrs Falstaff is in the attic looking for her Ouija Board to ask the real RW if he would like to register as a new message board member. Just watch yourself Sebastian, I think youquote ll be in big trouble with the big fella when he finds out what youquote re up to.

  • Mrs Falstaff  and her clairvoyant friends have made contact with the real RW and he does wish to communicate with us, so she and her crones have just gone off to Spirits Are Us to purchase a Ouija board with a USB connection.

  • All the best Gigi and good luck with the new venture :)

    Well if you can turn up out of the blue RW then you can always rely on your old mate Bry to steal your thunder ;D
     Like your good self i tend to have a mooch through the boards from time to time then slip back into the shadows. Hope your keeping well old pal and shifting a  gallon or two of the black stuff down the harbour ;)

    All the best to the old gang hope your all keeping well.

  • The real RW came through last night and spoke through a Medium.  You think know someone so well? The real RW is in fact Nigerian and speaks with a thick West African accent. He first came to Los Gigantes through his job. Both he and El Observador worked on the street selling sunglasses and on all his later holidays he always managed to bring an extra suitcase, mixing business with pleasure. We all must have seen him from time to time and passed pleasantries with him on the streets of Los Gigantes.

    The real RW is very upset that you are disrespecting him but rather than engaging in a public slanging match with you, he says there is a simple way to expose your identity theft racket by asking you questions that only the real RW would know. What is your full name as it is appears on your credit card? What is your bank account number and sort code? What is the name of the street on which you were born and what is your motherquote s maiden name?

    I think we can now safely put this problem to bed.

  • Actually "Pedro" anybody who bothers to talk to me face to face would already know that the landlandy of that property Do'f1a Antonia did not have a problem with any of us " sub-letters" in the business centre - in fact she offered us an extension of the contract in our own names - but we decided the local was just too big for the three of us so we are taking premises in Vigilia park which are being painted by the way and so will not be ready until next week.

    As to legalities any one who wishes can see my "apertura de actividad" they may do so with pleasure. The computer boys may or may not wish to show you their SL company"apertura de incorporac'edon" (that's their business--no pun intended) and. The other young lady's company - who are registered in the Uk would be very surprised to find they were not legal!
    Of course as you know the new "licenca de apertura" for the new premises will take a little time to arrive but is being applied for, or perhaps you don't know - never having actually been in business here legally yourself! Or maybe you have and you're the one who should reveal your identity and stop the gossips

  • Still at it Pedro?

    I recall several years ago, another occasion when you were behaving badly towards another member. Gigi threatened to expel you ldblquote and all your other identitiesdblquote  but she relented.  We all make mistakes.

    Gigi knows who you are and to her credit she has not ldblquote outeddblquote  you despite your many personal attacks.

    Pedro, why not do some something constructive with your time like learning Spanish? But if that is too intellectually demanding, then follow this link. It will tell you about a website where you can create and play with even more virtual friends without causing offence to real people.
