Cowart's Common Room
Party Post

Our last one on here and the end of an era . . . there was so much I was going to say - but each time I do I find myself welling up - so much has happened so much fun and laughter and not forgetting the comfort offered and support in the time of tears and of course the passing of our very own Woozle . . . so I shall just simply say thank you one and all - it has been amazing - and we may have moved to a new Skool - but we can make that amazing too . . .

So raise your glasses and let's toast our very own PURPLECOO

And now let's Party Very Happy starting with our Skool Anthem

Westerwitch's Avatar Eeek where did Fennie go

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Yes, what a wonderful time we have all had; what a journey it has been and I guess we are all now moving into a new phase of our lives. Some of us are moving to upper school; some are leaving school or involving themselves in Facebook or whatever. But if this school is to remain, with its memories and with its easy functionality, lets not entomb it in aspic. Can we not hold special events here. Hire it out for functions, as it were; for birthdays and at Christmas?

Just a thought - anyway, to all of those friends that I have got to know and for all the support and understanding I have received I say thank you and I raise my glass to all of you.

As Jane said a post or two back the occasion calls for some serious 'huggage' - I like that word.

I think we owe a toast to Country Living without whom none of this would have happened.

To Green Ducks everywhere - you are (almost) forgiven.

Re:
Tiggywinkle's Avatar Hello everyone, Don't know why I'm welling up, but I am. I would like to say thank you to you all for the fun, laughter and tears we have had together, and the joy of meeting Frances in New York, and the happy get together in Harrogate in 2009. I would also like to congratulate our dear WW who has dedicated so much of her time and created this lovely site. A big thank you to AA on the creation of the new Site. It is sad to see people move on, but I'm sure we will all settle down in our new school. Now where's Rosie with all that Champagne?

Re:
Ivy's Avatar Even though I wasn't a member right from the beginning I knew a lot of you lot from the Country living site. I then joined Rural Muse (so to say our sister site) but missed some of the familiar friendly faces. This site has been through difficult times and some of its members fell off the wagon left right and centre.
Now again the exodus has started, which I think is very sad.
Leaving this site is like loosing a dear friend. I am sure that the new site will soon be buzzing but it won't be the old coo with so many members missing. You see I am , for various reasons , not in party mood and thus I will not join in tonight, but will raise my mug of tea to those who are and were Purple Coo. How did we say? See you on the other side Crying or Very sadCrying or Very sad:cry

Re:

Sometimes the closeness of the founding members can be a little intimidating but I've found my corner, made some memories and consider you all to be friends. Sip, sip. Blow.

And, I'm looking forward to new adventures and new friends at the new skool. Just keep the address tucked into a safe place.

Like Camilla, I have much to thank you dear people on PC for; how you have supported me through good times and bad, and surgery, ill health etc etc etc.. too many occasions to list!

Thank you Westerwitch, AA and those of you who have set up the new site and the others through the years, and to those who have been involved, helping to run them.

I have had some great meet ups and holidays, and made some really good friends. You are all very special people.

I have to go and get eldest from work in a while so won't be around much through the evening. But I just wanted to raise a glass (cup of tea at the moment) say my thank you's and and wish every single one of you well.

I will see you very soon

Big hugs and thanks to you all for the last four years. I've registered in the new one but time is at a bit of a premium at the moment as it's full on Granny duty. The kids are both working and attending training courses so Toadygran is the first port of call nearly every day. It should ease off soon.
Does anybody know how Carmen's Jimmy got on in the Marathon?
I raise my glass to each and every one of you. It's been a blast.

This year's been - and continues to be - quite challenging in many ways which is why I haven't been around very much.

So for now, thanks to WW, HS and their family and friends for all the hard work here. Thanks to all the dear friends I've made here. Farewell for now. Cx

Re:
Arosebyanyothername's Avatar He's back! Hi Fennie. What a jolly time we are having. Have seen so many old friends and some firemen, Johnny Depp, an AA man - he was here wasn't he, or was that someone else?
Anyway before I go to bed I should just like to say this to everyone -

This is a splendid place Ė was a splendid place but the splendidness is moving, so if you have enjoyed the comradeship on this site for the last four years, come with us. Many of the same warm, funny, inspiring, dedicated people will be there but the new school will be sadly lacking if you are not there. You helped to shape the old school and we now need you to help build the new one.

There is a learning curve itís true but it can be fun learning new things and there are people to help you find your way. Westerwich and AA have worked hard on the infrastructure and we now need to deck the halls and put some of the love and caring in the building that we had before in the old school.

I have very much enjoyed my time on PurpleCoo and have met some delightful people - a big thank-you to all of you and I hope it all continues in the new place.

See you there!

Every one-
Great Party-Sorry to be late,but tagging along.at last on the bottom,for now.

Thanks 'WW' for giving us this grand site and all the happy times shared.

Camilla for making our 'Owl thread' so very special with the lovely photo's and wonderful mustic.
And such an honor to count her also as a close,dear friend.

We will all miss this old Coo,but I hope more of us will be able to join us at the new site.

I also was a member of CL.UK and met some great friends there-traveled a bit,but ended here and found a true home and more great new friends,as we will at the new Coo.

Must leave,as it is only supper time here across the pond.

Have fun.

Re:
Lixtroll's Avatar OOOH YES Grouse and accordions!! I know a song about coos :
One morning in the month of May
As from my cot I strayed,
Just at the dawning of the day
I met a charming maid.
I met a charming maid.

"Good morning, fair maid! Whither," (or it could be Withy) says I,
"So early? Tell me know."
The maid replied,"Kind sir," she cried,
"I've lost my spotted cow."

It goes on a bit from there, involving some rather hot stuff in flowery dells and whatnot, but they do find the cow in the end - let's have a singalong with WW's accordion!

Re:
Blackbird's Avatar I'm back and just in time it seems- clean glasses and some cold champagne to see in the new day.

I took a couple of minutes to read the last bunch of comments and wow- nothing like coming into a party in progress.

Posted by: Blackbird on 21st Apr 2011 at 12:02AM

Re:
Blackbird's Avatar So here we are, dear Camilla. It's been great to see some of the old cooers but there are still some faces missing.

Re:
Blackbird's Avatar There seems to be chocolate every where. And some odd bits of clothing. Hmmm

A hen party and a wedding sound totally fabulous though- the best of good wishes for you- WG. and a solstice wedding too! ( I wrote weeding first but I'm not so far gone that I didn't catch it first.)

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Hi BB . . . and thank you for the song Camilla - I still miss Freddie

Posted by: Westerwitch on 21st Apr 2011 at 12:10AM

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Hi Blackbird, yes, miss some of the Cooer's, but hopefully will be able to stay in touch with them and through their blogs also.

Posted by: Camilla on 21st Apr 2011 at 12:10AM

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Yes I too miss teh Cooers but between their blogs and FB we can still keep in touch and hopefully some of them will oneday join us again on the new site - although a lot of faces have vanished from here - but will leave a message to let everyone know where we have gone

Re:
Blackbird's Avatar I haven't made it to Facebook yet although I've heard that I'm in the minority. More than half of the americans have signed up- seems impossible to me.

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Queen was my absolute favourite Westerwitch, he was sooo talented, this song is one of my all time favourites, still miss him, never will be anyone like him ever again. My son is potty about Queen music too,

Posted by: Camilla on 21st Apr 2011 at 12:14AM

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar I find Facebook great for keeping touch with family - I talk to Wildchild in Australia a great deal.

Yes Freddie and Queen were amazing - there will never be another Freddie Mercury and Queen without him is just not the same.

Posted by: Westerwitch on 21st Apr 2011 at 12:16AM

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Thanks for a great party, even if I was not here for all of it, here's to the next year.!

Off to post Owl Post over in new skool now, see you over there, if not, sweet dreams to you.

Posted by: Camilla on 21st Apr 2011 at 12:17AM

Re:
Blackbird's Avatar What do you think WW- shall we turn out the lights or leave them on for late arrivals?

There's enough fairy dust here- all mixed in with the chocolate and sloshed bRandy slammers that clean up should just happen by itself. Well- that's what I've been told.

Posted by: Blackbird on 21st Apr 2011 at 12:21AM

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Let's just dim the light in case anyone pops in - also need a little light for the fairy dust to do its work - night night all - we certainly gave the old site a good send off.

Posted by: Westerwitch on 21st Apr 2011 at 12:32AM

Re:
Blackbird's Avatar sweet dreams to you WW and I hope that Rosie has a great birthday tomorrow.

Here's to many more years of Purple Coo and the very best of wishes to all the cooers- past, present and future.

Is there more in the bottle?

Posted by: Blackbird on 21st Apr 2011 at 12:35AM

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Nope all gone . . . unless - oh look here is one more - but I have been here since 7.00 pm so I am really off to bed - Camilla has just put up the Owl Post on the new site - so maybe take the bottle over there Very Happy Night Night.

Posted by: Westerwitch on 21st Apr 2011 at 12:40AM

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Just popped back, typed a message here, but somehow my text disappeared, my fault.

Night Night Westerwitch, sweet dreams.

Re:

Shall leave our Purple Chaise Lounger for us here in the garden, with little lamps outside on too.

See you in the new skool everyone.
