Can you try not tell us you are here on every post for this year?

Will you actually leave at end of 2024. You don't want to be known as someone who can't keep their promises like do you??

I could not leave some of you right now. I do know that most of you need / learn from my intellectual, Spiritual, Mentally and Emotionally sensitive Posts
I do know that a few Posters, Viking , Killing fields ( Ough what a horrrible handle) defenitely require further guidance, correction for another period

Well I can tell you (as I was told myself) that sensible informative ,intelligent Posters are difficult to comeby.
It was like a wake house without the C----- in the top corner of the Imperial when it was discovered that I had made my announcement that Posting on H/S would cease from the intelligent / intellectual Tomsmith .
Words used were are you being bullied
Are you afraid on that Kill--- Fiel--
Are you afraid of Vi----g
My answer was that all of these posters are doing the best that the can and it is no disrespect to them, or their abilty that some posts do not make and sense
So will give another year of guidance to those that understand that they need guidance / assistance/ correction administrated FOC
So make use of your time Lads and lassies ,

Good stuff. By the end of 2024 we'll surely have convinced you to extend this deadline.
Keep the posts coming.

His topics/ posts liven up the website a bit.
Maybe the website could have a piece every day, 'The Tom Smith moment' ?.

Well hopefully , Ulster man , say nothing, forever blue Viking and Killing field s ( ough what a name) going forward will be able to post on Hogan Stand items that can be read world wide. Always Remember what you post unsupervised can be read even away over in America .. Drumalee No 1 can read them.
So the fountain of knowledge acquired in the top corner of the Imperial Cavan will still from but for how long ????

He wouldn't be the first one they've created.

Real or fake he certainly represents a caricature of a certain type of Cavan supporter who is always quick to remind you they've 5 AI's and 40 Ulster's. They never like it when you point out that their last AI came in 1952 but the way they speak you'd think it was 1958 still.

They are the worst combination of a desperate Mayo supporter and an arrogant Kerry supporter. Unfortunately no one has been able to measure the depth of the chip in their shoulders as it would mean you got too close to their pockets...

ExiledInWex here,
I am relieved to read this Tom, I was heartbroken when I started reading the thread and delighted you hit a 3 instead of a 4 as you noticed at the end. It wouldn't be the first time a Cavan man used the lesser number.
I couldn't have handled your retirement news this early in 2023 after our cat died over Christmas so keep the well threads coming Tom.
Thanks @Tomsmith...............
