Hi,
My wife (Selkie) uploaded a couple of pics of our dandy dart?4? a few days ago, they should be lying around on this site somewhere, I'm not technical.
We live on the Cumbrian / Durham border miles from civilization.
It will take me a while to find my way round this site but it looks good so far.

Hello Tid

Post by Owd Lad on Sun 29 Jan 2012, 3:59 pm

Hello, good evening and welcome to the 'friendly forum'. I know you'll like the site. There's nothing not to like.

I must say that as a couple you and your missus have got cracking user names. Are they made up, nicknames or real names? It could be interesting to find out where everyone acquired there forum titles from and, as far as that goes, how people developed the pet names for their Dandys. Come on many of you have them. Certainly the older ones develop some personality and deserve a title (The Dandy's that is!) Ours hasn't got a lot of age and hasn't been given a permanent title yet, except by the owners of our regular CL in Lancashire who, when we're booking, ask if we're coming in the motor home or the 'inflatable'

I feel guilty now that we've had ours so long without even giving her a name ............... I therefore Christen her Margo, she has a good life and likes her cushions plumped daily Laughing

I'll just have a glass of wine by way of a toast to her and to celebrate

Hi Tid and sorry a belated

We go as Mr & Mrs Phoenix on here as that is what we named our Dandy 4.

When we were doing our rebuild somebody said something along the line of "arising from the ashes" and with her orange batwings we thought ah ha the Phoenix has risen. Smile

Names and titles

Post by Owd Lad on Tue 31 Jan 2012, 6:58 am

Loved seeing the replies so far. My forum name 'Owd Lad' is simply an often used Lancashire greeting and will often get tagged on to the end of statements, as in, 'Alreet Owd Lad' or 'There's no 'arm in that Owd Lad'. Just depends where you come from.
Perhaps northerners, by nature, are reluctant to give names to inanimate articles, although my wife has several names for me when she considers I'm inanimate.
