    thanks for the update Flash…..
    I doubt if I will continue my less often times with you all as am feeling a bit of an outsider lately….have very little in common with most of you and also not prepared to support Maccas on principle….think its time I bowed out gracefully. Take care everyone. hugs p

    It was a good get-together this morning. Merivale seems to be the most popular place so that is good. The parking is always available and not to far to walk.
    Bunnyhop, glad you enjoyed your trip to Wellington.

    I’m just hope the weather is kind to me for the rest of the week for my shift. It will be wonderful to get all settled down again..

    Gypsyspirit, my feeling also, so I bailed out.  Felt quite uncomfortable at times.   Fine at first but then not so.   All the best to you all.

    Gypsy Spirit, I am very hurt by your comments, I feel that both Graeme and I went out of our way to make you feel a part of our group. Perhaps the communication problem is not all our fault. As to our continuing to use McDonalds, the consensus of opinion was that parking is easy (necessary for those among us with mobility problems) prices are reasonable and the use of the private room means that people with hearing problems are able to join in. I am sorry that it doesn’t meet with your approval.

    Dear Desi,
    I am so sorry you feel hurt..in fact you may remember I have always expressed my sincere gratitude to both yourself and Graeme over the years you have helped me out with transport and always been so friendly and helpful. I have felt lately a difficulty in feeling included with many in the group and because I cannot afford to come to the frugal friday lunches have felt a little out of the loop…conversations have sometimes seemed strained for me too.
    I also understand the reasons others enjoy Maccas….it has long been my ethical choice to not support them…that is not really the issue. My values matter to me.
    I will contact you directly soon for a chat in the hope you understand…truly I have appreciated your friendship very much. Hugs p

    I didn’t get it, I feel dejected and rejected. I remember the Doc getting one from a woman, telling him how marvellous he was, He was so flattered until he found out that all the men got the same post!
