This is the strangest thread ever! Could somebody explain it to me perhaps. Maybe it is based on a television programme.
The big problem HenryJ, as I found out to my cost, is that there is nowhere else but on this thread to ask what it is all about - and the majority of the people who post here are raving nutters! Catch 22 - I rest my case.
I think it is true that if the lettering is coloured, then the character making the comments is, how shall we say, dead. But it took me months to find that out, and even then, more dead ones are emerging all the time (like Gert, who is new to me).
I would now like to quote The Old Lady, but due to a technical problem with the size of the window, I can't actually get to the Quote button. But here is what

Henry, Gerry is my twin brother, who gets me into all sorts of problems. But he is really quite innocent. He is not going to get a pension when he retires, so he is simply looking to his future and hoping to make it comfortable for himself by finding a lady who has a bit stached away that he can help her to spend. He mistakenly thought that a "lady" with the name Maybeline Ponsonby-Smythe might be a bit, well loaded, but it seems she has lost it all. So this little pastime of his has earned him the reputation as copied above - entirely unreasonable, don't you think?
The other little difficulty I have with Gerry is that he has found out my log-in name and password, so it is not always possible to decide who is actually posting in this thread, him or me. But he knows he is totally forbidden from posting anywhere else on this Forum.
