Sleepwalker joined the forum about a month before I did. In her relatively brief 2 & 1/2 year stint as a regular on the forum, she became it's heart & soul. There were some really fun times here in 2011 & 2012 with her at the center, encouraging everyone to post pics & share aspects of their lives while always being an uplifting person. Emma did that while going through a lot of tumultuous events in her life but you'd never know anything was troubling her. It was a sad time for me when she left the board in January 2013 because I also lost a pet & my grandmother passed in the same week. I've been friends with her ever since via email & sending each other gifts, as well as for 4 years now on FB. I'm not sure I'll ever experience anything online like the experience I had in those first couple of years & meeting a great friend like Emma!
Emma also owns Ray's old car & calls it LOLA so she's even more uber cool!
LOLA is in the shop getting some body work done so let's all wish her well!
Happy 10 Year Anniversary Sleepwalker!

Happy anniversary, Sleepwalker! I'm so glad I got to know you through this wonderful message board -- can it really only be 10 years ago? Just goes to show that a love of the Kinks brings together the best people!

Thank you everyone for the well wishes 😀 Especially John for his kind words! I'm impressed that I remembered my password for logging into the forum, it's been awhile! A lot of things have changed for me since I joined the board but a couple of things remain the same - the Kinks are still my favourite band and I still have Lola! As John said she is in the garage at the mo having bodywork done and will be there for at least another couple of weeks but should come back looking great. I don't think I had a driving license last time I posted here? I passed my test four years ago 🙂 Still going to the Konvention in London every year, although who knows if it'll go ahead this year? 😕 Nice to see some of the old gang are still here, does anyone ever hear from Powerman I wonder? Anyway, thanks for remembering me 😁
