    Just booked a flat in Benidorm for the last 3 weeks in Feb. Was thinking of taking a bit longer to get there, though it is only 1100 miles from Calais.

    The weather is beautiful down at Zahora Salopian and as we speak they are thinning the tree canopy out in anticipation of your arrival

    With the price of Spanish booze can't completely discount it.

    We are down to our last bottle of Soborano. That is one smooooooth brandy. There is a cafe on the front does crepes to French standards, with a coffee and brandy that is one excellent mid morning snack.

    There is a Dutch owned cafe nearby, does the huge Dutch pancakes, that's lunch sorted.

    Life can be so hard. I must say it looked a lot better than this in March...

    There once was an optimist Salopian

    Whose plans often failed but he'd have hope again

    So down to Toulouse

    He travelled with booze

    To find JJ's people all over the place so his sneaky plans were ruined again and I don't care if it doesn't scan or rhyme... OK?

    Good.

    JJ :Cool:
