    Smile Where is Chippie

    Hi I am new to this site, a couple of years back a guy named Chippie started writing about his life in Everton. Does anyone know if he finished it. I have been reading the old posts for hours and his story ended with him saying he would add more chapters, but I haven't been able to find it. Can you help.

    Chippie was bullied on this forum. He was threatened and he moved away from the area. If you have any messages for him I will pass them on.

    These are indeed sad tidings Bernie.
    I don't recall our paths crossing, Chippie and me, but I would not mind a look-see at what he was writing, if anyone has a link. [I did try a search for Everton, but there was no real clue as to which thread he wrote under]

    It is such a shame when you lose good writers from a forum because of bullies, I have seen it happen on so many. Can't understand why people have to write unecessary derogatory things about other people they don't even know. I lived a few streets away from where Chippie was talking about and it was such a pleasure to hear about times remembered. I was born in Everton and my Mum who is 90 lived there all her life until we moved in the mid 60's. Mum would love to read the full story, I have printed off everything I could find on the forum, but would love to find the rest if I can. Thanks for all your responses.

    BrianD, also read your stories which were really good, I am prining these out to send to my mum as she loves reading aout the good old days. Have you written anything else lately.

    Cheers

    Can't find it myself. I had a quick look but too many threads and topics ! Can't remember where his memoirs are now.

    ---------- Post added at 10:37 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:26 AM ----------

    Smurf started a thread 'whatever happened to .. .. '

    but I can't find that either !! it's like rooting through a huge library out there ! So many threads
    The search facility doesn't always narrow it down enough.

    So, whatever happened to Taffy ? .. and MarkR is missing too, along with quite a few others.

    I think people just take a break from forum life and persue other interests for a while.
    I know a few people have other projects on the go.

    I remember Chippie as I thought it was someone I knew with the same nickname. Don't remember the bullying though.

    I don't want to rake up past troubles by discussing this further. Other people left at the same time including me, I rejoined some time later using a different name.

    Gosh no !! that didn't make him leave the area but he left the forum for those reasons.
    He located to a new area for personal and family reasons.

    It might have happened just before you joined. Not sure of dates.

    I get suspicious of anyone asking where Chippie is, as it has happened before and comments just lead to opening old wounds.
    I wonder sometimes if they are mischief making 'plants' and I don't mean aspidistras

    Well, it has been known before on this forum

    Welcome to Kalannie anyway


    Kalannie, if you enjoy reading memoirs have a gander at Brian Daley's - they are great and will keep you entertained for hours
    I keep telling him he should get a book published.

    This is the first time I have ever put anything on a forum and all I wanted to do, was see if I could find the rest of a story that I had been reading, or if anyone could point me in the right direction. It really is sad when I end up being accused of being a plant, I really din't want to physically find this person, just the story that he had written. Hopefully I will be able to find it and thanks to all the people who did give me some positive feed back. To Lindy Lou, thanks for the advise about Brian Daley, I have printed off some of his stories and sent them to my Mum.

    Cheers

    Sorry, just me being a bit in tongue in cheek !
    We did have one or two wind ups before

    Not sure if Chippie has completed his story, I don't think he ever got around to writing any more.

    I often think of printing out Brian's story, but there is so much of it! it will cost a fortune in ink !! Ha!
    I do wish it was in book form. It would be a best seller.

    Not too sure where I am up to with this as I printed every thread I could find but they did not seem to be in chronological order. I increased the font size (fading eyes) and ended up with 94 pages. I will see if I can put them in some order and find out which is the last one.

    Cheers

    94 pages ! !
    I thought I'd got it all but only had 5 pages ! ( small font size )
    The story I have ends with Chippie leaving school.

    I can think of several characters who seem to have stopped honouring us with their contributions recently. Some were outspoken individuals with an original view of life they liked to share with us, however quirky or outrageous, or had a gift for creative writing that made their posts a pleasure to read. It would be a real pity if they had been forced out by lesser talents, as I suspect may have happened in a few instances.

    By the way, does anyone know whether George and Jacky Gunnion gone the way of the 'Disappeared' or are they just having a rest?
