    Looks like I wasted a lot of time boarding.

    You could have told me sooner.

    a dollop of 'blue tac' for the spy holes

    and repurpose the wood and screws used for boarding as a fancy table?

    butchers block? postmortem table?chopstick supplies?
    (like to place an order)


    unless you've welded sheet metal over entrances...
    repurpose and enter Robo-Wars?

    Now I'm singing 'bring back the dollop'

    To the tune of 'boiled beef and carrots'

    Are you?

    It's a normal dollop song.

    Americans wont understand it, as they still have their dollops...

    The British dollop is dying out.

    What is a British dollop? An American dollop is a spoonful of something amorphous such as whipped cream, softened butter, or jam.

    Yeah, not quite what I mean.

    I realize texting is an initial stage of courtship if you have "met" someone online in a dating context. Not the case here. The OP is a guy as are the other 4 mountain bikers, near as I can tell. An alternate approach (face-to-face, beer-to-beer, etc.) is needed before the OP should presume to have anything but an acquaintance relationship with these chaps.

    A British dollop is an original dollop.


    More a comment on word histories and such,some die out,some remain.
    America a good example as some words died out hundreds of years ago I. England,still used in America

    I was kind of in the same boat recently.

    One of the people still never responded.

    One finally responded but it was because she never checks the messages where I was sending it so that why there was a huge delay.

    The other finally responded after I sent another message saying "Hey can you see this message?" pretending that I am checking if they are getting the messages. They finally responded to my question, but they did seem kind of busy at the moment.

    Sometimes you have to accept the fact that people may have plans already for those days or just not feeling like going. Try not to think about it too much, maybe you will ride with them again soon and find out they had stuff going on during that time and that's why they couldn't get back to you

    No, I was asked by a friend I used to work with to go on a ride with them. On the ride the guy who started the group told me about the group on Facebook. He gave me a couple stickers and I’ve been in the group since. Typically only about 8-15 people show for the rides with about 5 random people showing pending on the location.

    Is this former co worker who is your friend someone you usually ride with? How connected is this person with other people there?
