Default Greetings from a long-lost friend!

Hello, everyone!

To those of you who remember Jeff Rice's forum "The Canteen" from the 1990s, I'm "Percy Tebbs." It's amazing how much time has passed and how much has changed since that forum closed, but my enjoyment of Are You Being Served? certainly hasn't changed.

In fact, just a few days ago I received DVD sets of the series, the sequel, and the movie. I've been laughing myself hoarse since!

I look forward to reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones here.

Greetings!

Welcome! Grab a drink and settle in. Lucas has the key to the executive drinks cabinet and I think Sonosun and Greg are running amok in their vinyl chaps. It's all go at AYBS?+!

Welcome aboard! I can't remember what username I had for The Canteen. It might have been Hugger Humphries.

Hmm... that may sound familiar, but, on the other hand, I've had quite a few other things to occupy my thoughts since that forum closed, so, unfortunately, I can't guarantee that I remember such a name.

We have CDs now, but those pesky downloads everyone's raving about are cutting into our sales. I keep getting requests for something called an "eye-pod"...
