    Hi
    I've been a member for a while, so I thought I would introduce myself.
    As you can see my name is David, took early retirement about 3 years ago, well I think work retired me. I use to work at The University of Leicester on the management side, until they gave me some money to go away. Before that I worked in industry and before that 20 years with the good old M.O.D. (Navy). The lovely Carole retires at the end of the year after working as the Operations director for a Union for the last 25 years. Then its off in the motorhome which we call "Get lose Gretie" By the way we always wave to other motorhomes, it's great fun.

    Hi Vad, still trying to talk Carole round to getting a cockapoo, the only problem is we have one child in New Zealand and another possibly moving to the States so we would want to visit them for quite a few weeks a year and would it be fair to put it in kennels for weeks or months at a time?
