    We just returned from a nice and sunny 14 days trip to England !!

    This was the second time we visited England and like in 2009 we started with the meet in Shepton Mallet. We really enjoyed the meet in 2009 so our expectations we set very high for 2010........ and we were not disappointed !!!

    We enjoyed seeing most of the people again we met in 2009 and had a great time with the ones who were present in 2010 and not in 2009.
    It is a pity though that in just one weekend you cannot speak to everyone present

    This year we were accompanied by one of our granddaughters (Britt) and she still remembers a lot of you.
    She still talks about the magician she met and who made her a pink poodle of balloons.
    Amanda is also well remembered because of her involvement and of course...... the flying dragon on the flagpole of her motorhome.
    Lilly who played a lot with Giddy (Alan's dog, she really is a dog lover) Joy's dog because he could nt see, Bruno, (he is big isnt he grandma, even bigger than Giddy and Janos, sorry Kath Janos is the one name she quotes)

    But most of all........The Funsters Choir.... singing Happy Birthday for her

    Got this one on video tape :cry: Will try to find a way to upload this clip lateron. It would be a shame if not every funster could recognize and see the excelent singing quality !!!:Rofl1:

    Showed the video tape to her parents and they were touched by the way everyone gave Britt attention and spoiled her :shout:

    By the way, Martin, Ineke will have some more Dutch Black pudding with her the next time we will visit England, We will not take the raw herring with us, that was just a revenge for the haggis :Blush: But ShiftZZ, you can always sent us a PM if you want some :Smile:

    Our thanks to everyone present at Shepton Mallet and of course to Roger who made it possible again

    Paul and Ineke

    What a lovely picture, brought a smile to my face. Oh boy will that smile break a few boy's hearts in the not too distant future.

    Your video, easy way is upload to YouTube. Then The Whole World can see :RollEyes: If you name it motorhonefun_shepton it gets the site mentioned.

    I am glad you enjoyed the weekend, it was the best one yet and I did bring the sunshine as ordered. Britt is a joy to behold and your photo captures her perfectly for me. I hope we are as lucky with the weather next year, when of course you will not be limited to 2 weeks. I hope to arrange a meet for August in Devon when Frankie comes over so hopefully you will join us for that one first, hee hee.

    Hi,
    Enjoyed the Black pud but unfortunately missed the herring.

    I used to go to Amsterdam quite a lot in my younger days, with my sons and their friends when they were in their teens and it was always a treat to get the herring sandwiches from the vans. I do remember being the only one who liked it though.:Laughing:
