    well we have just arrived back and so a big thankyou to Chrisboyo and the ramjamband.

    Had a great time in General Camping with a field all to our selves, just got to meet Maddie at long last, We missed the Bois, but now I have seen your avatar I did see a couple of Bassets being walked.

    The boys survived their survival weekend and when we picked them up they had been eating worms fried and nettles, and stank of smoke. :help:

    So see you all at Stratford and get booked in this time.:BigGrin:

    We enjoyed meeting the 2 of you too. Nice to put faces to a name and meeting up for real.
    We had a nice time in the general camping area and met up with some friends for a bbq.

    Also just home from Newbury, via some rather blustery sections of the M4.
    2hrs 20 mins to get there, with a short stop. 3hrs 10 mins and no stop to get home.

    Add my thanks to Chris & Liz for some sterling work over the weekend.

    See you all at Stratford.

    Home at last - as Peter says, it's a tad windy out there. M40 was a bit scary!

    Thanks Chris & Liz for hosting another great meet! Great to see some new faces too.

    Think we may have made a few converts to the bonsai guitar too :Rofl1:

    I too have reached home safely.

    Reality has struck and I'm looking at a pile of washing and ironing prior to going back to work tomorrow :Doh:.

    I'll definitely be checking the calendar and booking up for more shows.

    See you all soon!!!

    For those that do not know

    For those that did not know.. we had a cook up under Landy Lovers awning.. The Griffs, Toffs G, Land Lover and ourselves.. we had 3 cookers going it a double burner coleman, a cobb unit and a gas top ring burner.. and every one bought chicken.. I was cooking chicken for 2 hours or so.. these was so much chicken Landy Lover and ourselves had it for dinner on Sunday and Ezzie had a good dozen chicken thighs (meat off the bone) for her dinner Sunday night.. I hate the sight of it. Mind you we did have ribs, steak (from Landy Love) and sausages .. lots of loverly sausages from Gillypigs.. recommended.. Jersey Royals potatoes and salid.. plus from Cathy (Toffs G) chinesse dumplings (very good they were to).. plus oceans of wine.

    So I bet this time we will not see any chicken.. oh never mind, we can always cook it again.. great weekend. really enjoyed it.. So Ezzie meet the Welshbois Bassett Hounds.. Ezzie also meet Dax (the German of the .

    Hoping the Stratford meet will be as good. we really enjoyed the met.. and Bill sorry for all the stories.. but it made my weekend to find someone else that served in the Civil Defence Corp.. There I was thinking I was the only odd ball... (sorry BIll) hunting out the badge tonight.

    thanks Chris and LIz also

    Thanks for the rally Chris and LIz.

    enjoyed it.. we had a great time...

    meet so many old and hopefully some new friends at Newbury.

    Hell of a drive back to Tunbridge Wells, The wind was bad.. I am very glad on Sunday we took the awning in.. I doubt it would have been there this morning.

    But wind aside it was a good weekend. Just finished unloading, dumping the blank tanks and refilling the water tanks for next week at Stratford on Avon.

    Loved Stuart and his 'happy clappy band'.. even if I had to be penetance and try and play his little instrument.. OK I suffered Stuart... but it was fun.. at least a lot joined in whicle some just used there cameras.. oh yea, sorry JJ for waking you up so early.. mind you I think you were still a sleep at 11.30 when we left this morning.

    Bob, Sue and Ezzie the St Bernard..:Eeek:
