Well that's a pretty sad way to return to the forum after a few days out of it. Think she was one of the originals on C4 when I first forummed in 2003. Maybe wrong.
You're right. I remember Mynah from early C4 days too - i think I must've joined around the same time as you.

Does anyone still talk to Sue Marcs from the C4 forum? Did she make it over to FB?

Never made it to FB 1.0 ... I think one of the Robs might have been in contact.

I first "met" Mynah on the old SA Supersport site in 2002. Other members there were Barbara, Hilda and Caspar. I joined C4 in December 2002 and think Mynah was slightly before me.

Neil was already there when I arrived and Lever would have joined in 2003 as he said.

IIRC correctly she disappeared some time before the demise of C4.

RIP Mynah. You were a forum gentlewomen who managed to stick around despite all the doggerel and as many have mentioned, keep everyone entertained with your stories and witty observations.

A sad loss indeed.

One of mynah's passions was cooking. She invited me for lunch one Saturday and the kitchen ceiling had collapsed the previous evening. It was quite fun picking pieces of ceiling out of your food. I think some how Murphy is related to mynah because if something went wrong, mynah was in close proximity. If she wasn't dropping plates or falling (not intentionally) over people during our lunches, she would come out saying what was on her mind and would have everybody sitting near us crawling with laughter and she would try and look completely innocent.

Poor mynah can't even berate countryman Hansie for being a dick, given she'll be in a different place to him. No

Horrendous news, brings a lot of trivial things into perspective. RIP Mynah.

There's a welcome return, even though it's such bad news that brought you back.

This news has somewhat spoiled my day.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Mynah's dry humour, and interesting take on things. I will miss her contributions to this mad-house.

RIP dear lady.

I'm never far away, just not crickety at all anymore. Still enjoy a lot of the people here though.

Kind words BD, thanks Smile

Jill, sad that you have gone off the cricket. I supposed that's partly just existential fears on my part though. Time passing, old passions passing away, and all that.

On a lighter note, How are the horses?

I never enjoyed Jimmeh. I was a firm Gough lover.

I didn't move on after 2005 and from then got less and less interested. Still check all the scorecards and enjoyed a bit of TMS this summer but the passion has gone.

Horses are ace. I'm off to the provincial finals next weekend. The cowgirl dream is on track :-D

I think Lardy was confusing you with Mel (of Tennis Racket Brand).


Pity pity pity ... you lost the love of cricket.

but yee-haa!!!! on the horse front.

Expect some ribbing on here re: Cowgirl dream.

Have you elegantly doffed your cap at the ball as it takes middle your stump to the boundary?

Wow. I would almost make a point to read a topic where she'd posted regardless of subject. Genuinely will miss reading her posts but will look through the articles she wrote.

... only in the Jimmy-loving sense; I don't remember a lot about Mel Y, just Rachel's (on screen) scorn.

Maybe it's the time in Canada that put you off, Jill. Not many opportunities? And of course, new interests.
