Would you believe it, not 10 minutes after posting this I've got news of a funeral I would need to attend in Yorkshire frown

So it rules me out I'm afraid unless it could be on the Sunday 14th...

Good meeting up with you albeit rather briefly. Some story there with your drive shaft Rob! Only took me 3 hrs to get home despite pigs running free on the M6 south of Lancaster!

Great effort on your part Alan and sorry you had to leave so soon bow

Thank you for supplying the plague of flies upon our arrival at Drumlanrig laugh

You also missed some serious sound effects from a certain red coop....



What pigs, the porcine or the cop type?


Thanks again, Photobucket.

Great to catch up with you guys again, respect to Alan for the effort to come up from Warrington for just a couple of hours.

I just thought it was a bit late for the campers to still be snoozing in their tents so a customary wake-up alarm was called for laugh


This is how it should have come out of Torino!
