    Default Miss me yet?



    Greetings! After 2 years away I decided to return. In these 2 years, lots of things happened including 2 different jobs and my father's health (thankfully recovered).

    I don't go on pub crawl much like I did Pre 2010 due to job but still have a time to visit new pubs.

    So how's Conrad, Soup Dragon, Del (from Black Country I think) and others I have forgotten.

    Wow, of course we missed you Hoppy , welcome back. I'm sure they'll be plenty of people filling you in on the news but right now they are probably all too drunk. There's a PuG meet up going on today, a tour of the Black Country. Cheers.

    That's a lot of catching up. I think Andy Ven arranged the crawl, RogerB ,Quinno , Delboy , Oldboots, Oggwyn ,Dave M are among those on the crawl i think. Just sent one of them a Facebook message to say you've returned so the word will be going around.

    Good timing you coming back just before a JDW festival. I take it you are still an official taster

    Hi hoppy,

    Soupy is enjoying a glass of Sarah Hughes Ruby at the Beacon in Sedgley and asked me to say hello.

    Afraid so. Still official tester, in fact I have visited 39 Wetherspoon pubs since I left this forum.

    Hello Hoppy, I wasn't an active member of the forum when you were here last but have read a lot of your previous comments while educating myself on the ways Pubsgalore, welcome back, the more the merrier. I know your a big fan of JDW whereas I am not,so we may disagree on certain things but diversity makes life interesting.
