    My watch sales for local hospice

    This is Bob's son Lee. Sadly Bob passed away on Sunday 26th November at Keech Hospice Care, Bedforshire. He was without pain and with family by his side. I know he loved this forum and talked about it a lot with me. I just wanted to say thank you for giving him an outlet to discuss his love of watches, and thank you all who bought watches from his collection to raise money for the hospice. I've seen personally how that money gets spent and it really does make a huge difference. If you would like to make a donation, Bob had two charities that gave him enourmous support in his final months of life. Keech Hospice Care, where he was cared for towards the end, and MacMillan Cancer Support who were there for him from his diagnosis to provide emotional and practical support throughout. https://www.justgiving.com/keechhospicecare https://www.justgiving.com/macmillan Take care all, Lee

    My watch sales for local hospice

    I knew something was wrong last time we talked. I'm just glad the hospital didn't fob me off when I presented myself to A & E on Wednesday morning.
  3. I'm just back home from another stay in hospital where they discovered another blockage in my bowel and nothing more they can do for me except treat the symptoms. I thought the first thing I should do is get on with donating the money raised from some watch sales on here into the Keech hospice Many thanks to Roy for the facility , and thanks to all those of you who kindly donated money and overpaid for the watches. I rounded it up a bit to£340 donation page by bob pedder, on Flickr donation conf by bob pedder, on Flickr I would like to thank you all again, and for the DM messages of support, Bless you Bob

    That is very kind of you. Thank you. That takes the total to over £300. I will email you. I'm gobsmacked by the generosity shown on this wonderful forum. Thank you all.

    Ups and down an TWF W/E 1-10-17

    Thanks for the kind thoughts Roger. UPS A surprise weekend visit from my son who lives in Gibraltar. He's just arrived. Not feeling too bad health wise despite starting chemo (again) on Tuesday this week. DOWNS Chemo takes a lot of your time and I resent having to miss nature walks, etc because of it. 3 hospital visits in one week really eat into your time. Started to sort out my watch collection to sell off those that won't be given to family. Should see some in the sales corner on here soon.

    When you turn your toes up!!!!!

    I'm in this situation as you know Roger, and I still don't know what to do with my watches. Do I let my kids have one each? But then the watches are all not of an equal value and that doesn't seem fair. Do I sell them on here and give the money to McMillan nurses and Keech hospice? But then there is not much else for the kids to have to remember me by. I don't know what to do and it's the last thing I need to sort out as I've organised everything else in preparation for my departure. I really would like some ideas / advice from members on this.

    Our cat has been shot

    Martin, I am saddened to read this. I do hope you have reported it to the police.

    What Are You Listening To

    Seeing Paloma Faith earlier in the thread reminded me to play my favourite song of hers. ...and very similar to the above. Witch Queen of new orleans. Takes me back to nights spent in Antwerp disco's. Happy days!
