The current few Old Mates who maintain contact quite regularly on the LI Most Wanted pages have promoted an idea for a new non-military weblog page to provide a platform for social exchanges that embrace our present lives and activities. The fond hope is that Old Mates who have wandered afar from the long ago recollections of the 1950s and who are now (in 2015) in their 70s/’80s will join us in banter and bull and friendly repartee. We can of course continue to post comments to the remaining ‘open’ weblog pages for military related dialogue, but on this Geezers R US, we propose a clear space for wide civilian style exchanges, including well achieved Birthday Wishes, Anniversaries and the like, additionally to frequent holiday and local escapades. Feel free to email me your .jpeg photos for inclusion in Comments that you post such as the example shown.
The general view is that we seek to encourage a regular exchange of interesting comments about daily life and events; funny, happy, sad and memorable occurrences that you wish to share with others. Holiday snaps, garden tips, cooking achievements, travel hiccups etc – anything goes. We hope that the widows and families of Old Mates (especially past Regimental characters) will make an effort and we can restore much of the original camaraderie – echoed during the June 2009 Re-Union and the immediate years that followed. Carpe Diem!
UPDATE 24TH JULY 2016 The site has changed yet again with many page closures (hidden) to simplify the header section. Followers of Geezers will note the posts relating to our diminishing numbers and frequency of comments. I predict that the entire site will shut down by end 2016.
