    Yo Bev,

    As others have said, awesome to see you back and know that you're ok - and yes we were worried!

    Steve (Piggurs) has been pining for you, such is the effect your sexy chats had on him, and I believe the only way he coped, was to turn the pic of your legs into his screensaver, and dream of the day you returned!

    Anyway, as you very correctly said:

    Indeed, so never forget that, you naughty girl and always treat this place as your haven among friends and somewhere you can escape from the stresses of life!
