Default Robert Linford

For a week now, Bob hasn't been seen on the Forums. Bob never missed more than a day from signing in...and that's what has some of us worried.

Debs, Gary and I have been hoping he'd pop up and make an appearance and allow us to breathe easier....but he's still a no-show.

One person called and left a phone message for him 3 days ago...but still no reply.

If you know anyone who knows Bob and who might be able to help us find out where Bob is or whats going on....please let us know.

Thanks very much.
How

Yes, Robert last posted on the 11th over on CB.

Does he go on holiday?

Jon:

I can't recall him ever being away from the site for more than two days....I might be wrong but I don't remember a time that he did.

Hi How, All,

I did notice Robert wasn't around but guessed he was okay and knew something we didn't - possibly a last-minute decision to go off somewhere -
because I noticed he cast his last caption votes on Tuesday 11th, almost a week in advance of when he usually does so each week.

I do hope he will return soon none the worse for wear. I have no contact details for him.

Love,

Caz

I'll just add that I hope Robert's ok and that there's probably a mundane reason why he hasnt posted. He may just be ill and not feel like switching on the laptop. I don't know if anyone on here knows Robert in 'real life' if you know what I mean?

Regards
Michael

Thanks folks. I've been attending my nephew's wedding in Ireland.


I hope I won't be sacked from the Forums for having gone abroad?

Cancel the search party!

Hello Robert

Glad you are ok.

I think that you could say that your absence was 'noticed'.

Regards
Michael

The Weekly Contests would never be the same again without you, Robert. I thought about your absence after reading the beginning posts. I had thought maybe you went to a funeral and am glad it was a wedding.
