    The marquee stared filling up at around 8:30 pm, funsters coming together, chattering, some drank coffee, others had beer in cool boxes that clearly weren't needed as it was decidedly nippy. A regular Funster gathering. Later some music was supplied and and a few of the ladies had a dance and the inevitable sing-song ensued. :BigGrin: Most funsters were in bed by midnight, but a small group waited up for JJ on his return from Wembley. Just after midnight, the headlights of the car illuminated the marquee. 18 hours after JJ left the rally area, scared that Stoke were going to"nick it" He was back in the marquee, the swagger and the smile were both large. :Laughing:

    A few loud ( too loud sorry:Blush: ) choruses of "Congratulations" and "Blue Moon" ensued and we listened to JJ's story of his trip to Wembley and the kissing of strangers at the final whistle.

    Very crispy bacon please, and only half the bread roll. Preferably dipped.

    Ta.

    PS if I supply the tomato, could you fry it in your bacon pan for me?

    They were delicious as usual.

    What ever the provenance of the bacon, the pig died for a nobel cause.

    Sounds like you had a brilliant time JJ.... just had a phone call from Camaerthan (Peter and Neil and then others) telling me how you impressed them.... but no JJ:cry: on the end of the line. Sorry the weather wasn't better but it doesn't seem to have stopped most of you having a brill time. Have a safe journey home.:thumb:

    Thank you to Jim and Sian for looking after us at this show albeit a very small affair this year not sure if due to change of date or the change of organisers but the company was great:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Weather could have been warmer but we still enjoyed the fresh air and the bacon butties which were great

    It was great meeting the new funsters and those that popped in for the day(sorry to have missed you welshbois perhaps next time) we arrived home this morning we are only an hour away from this venue:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    ps have tongs that were left behind...... if you are missing them please pm me

    Thanks to all Funsters for a good weekend. Also thanks to Jim for the bacon rolls. Thoroughly enjoyed them, still getting to know Funsters as this was only our second meet. Shame there was not more traders at the show as the camp site was was busy and the car parks were full every day. Looking forward to the future meets we have booked.
    PS Bear say's thanks for all the attention you gave him, and he will be back for more.

    We have just arrived back home from the Carmarthen Show. Despite the chilly weather we had a great time. Our thanks to Jim & Sian for marshalling, to PeterH for the Welsh Cakes, and to all of the Funsters present for making it such a good meet. We are now looking forward to Misterton.


    Brisey & Pam.
