Robin Cloke. aka CAIRNSYS

9 months 2 weeks ago #192091 by cairnsys
I've been off the board for a few days and have come back to find I've passed on! I am however still alive and reasonably well. For info, my name is Robin JONES.

Seriously though, my sincere condolences to Robin Cloke's family and friends. It's never a good time to die but this time of year is the worst of all.

Robin ;)

Robin Cloke has indeed sadly passed away.

Cairnsys is me though, Robin Jones and I am still here. I think perhaps David heard the news about Robin and thought it was me.

I’ve heard of people reading their own obituaries and have wondered what it must be like. Now I know! Nice to read some of the lovely comments though.

Robin ;)

No problem at all David. Other than the obviously sad news about the other Robin, it was kind of funny really.

A couple of years ago a similar thing happened to me.
I got a voicemail message on the phone from an old girlfriend: "I just heard about your passing. I just rang to hear you voice one last time."
Obviously she was very upset.
So I called her back, poor bugger was in total shock when I spoke (I have a very distinctive voice) I then had to track the misinformation back to it's source, turned out it was a case of mistaken identity.

So glad to hear you are not dead, Robin!
Obviously, what I wrote about Robin Cloke still applies.

All this time, I was confusing two people as one.:shrug:
