Very interesting to read that match report - I wasn't able to attend the game but I remember following the scorecard at work and cheering every time we took a wicket on that fantastic first day.

I didn't know Diamond, although I read his contributions on this board for years. However, that post has brought back memories of "Auntie" Janet, who I met on many occasions. I know she used to post on here but as I recall, she was a rather controversial member of the site. Dare I ask if anyone knows how she's faring these days? I haven't seen her at a match for years.

Janet was indeed a controversial member of MTWD while trying to express her opinions as a passionate Middlesex fan. The last time I saw her was in our disabled section with a carer. We have reconciled our differences and I hope to see her again.

Life is indeed too short.

What was the name of that rabbit thing that used to attend lots of our matches and posted selfies? Did it end up in a stew?

Hippity. Or do you mean a Rampant one?

I've now dug up and read the thread from 2010 when Janet's situation was revealed. I wasn't always a regular reader of MTWD, and somehow this information completely passed me by. I was totally unaware of her health problems and was wondering why I hadn't seen her at matches for years. I'm very sorry to read that thread, and I hope that the last few years have been kind to her.

I also remember Janet. Our thoughts are with her and we wish her well for the future.

There are several of us who hope that Janet is comfortable.

Merely retired from writing, Freddie Tittlemouse. No rabbit stew for me - it would be more of a beanie stew anyways.

Here is the tale (I mean tail) of my retirement.


Great to see that this site is still thriving.
