I've been missing for some time now on this forum because of my wife's illness as I was her carer for the 9 years she has had Alzheimers, Sadly she passed away last March and it's taken it's toll on me as you can imaging having been married for 62 years.
However life must go on as they say as painful as that may be on times so here I am with my two penneth but I must say having come back it is disappointng to me to see the lack of postings on here. At one time not that long ago it was a very lively forum indeed and friends were even made through participation.
I was born and raised in Tylorstown in the Rhondda and Aberdare was very often a shopping centre we liked to visit with it's good array of shops, the market and of course the park which was always a pleasure to visit. I have moved a little further away these days but still like to keep in touch with "Home'
I hope some of you that used to contribute will again start posting and also new members of course, I'm sure some of you would get a lot of pleasure by posting and keeping in touch with whats going on in the valley.
Best wishes to everyone as well as the staff who have done a great job over the years to keep this forum going.
All the best from Down Under
