    Seeing as you are in a boat, maybe flooding the wrong word to use?:)

    Bill,
    I would never make comment on anybody's grammar, I have read all your posts with great interest.
    The post was referring to you and little one playing on water and the last thing you would need was 'flooding'.
    Hence the smilie.
    If I have offended, I apologise, but rest assured I shall carry on reading.
    Geoff.

    Just back from the hospital appointment with the consultant he could not be happier that i have taken up kayaking agane
    He say that it will tone up my mussels and help to prevent a shoulder dislocation again by tightening up my mussels and ligaments that holed the shoulder in place.
    I have Ben taking it easay till i had seen him but the x rays show complete bonding of the bone and repair the screws are covering over with bone and are fully integrated with the repair.
    The socet shows no sign of damage there is no indication of any arthritic complications.
    It feals grate and cant wait to test it out now properly only ben going on the water for short periods of time i will now build up my activity.;
    to strengthen both my sholdrers.
    Ben wanting to try out my sculling and roiling but till i got the all clear from the dock was resisting the urge to do any damage.
    watch out all those river i have Ben away from for all those years bills back

    Hi Bill

    Its great that you are getting the wee man into canoeing, you will find that Slalom has changed a lot from your day, gone are the dedicated slalom boats, i believe you can turn up and paddle anything.

    I did more C2 than C1, we were premier div in C2 but not as good as it sounds, I think we even got to be ranked 4th behind Jock and Bluebell, Jamieson and Williams and the Smith's from memory.

    Happy days.
