Dec-16-16  offramp: Hebden, Flear, Arkell ... The great old names...

<I have had playmates, I have had companions,
In my days of childhood, in my joyful schooldays,
All, all are gone, the old familiar faces.

I have been laughing, I have been carousing,
Drinking late, sitting late, with my bosom cronies,
All, all are gone, the old familiar faces.>

  Domdaniel: <offramp> Quite. Somewhat to my surprise, I've never played a tournament game vs Hebden, Flear or Arkell ... though I've played in tournaments alongside all three of them.

  Domdaniel: <When you grow tired
Of the friends you make
Never ever turn your back on them
Say they were the best of times
You ever had
The very best of times
With the thoughtless kind.

We dress conservatively
At the best of times
Prefer the shadows
To the bright lights in the eyes...>
