The quiet sniggering is because it was about 1:30 when we got back from the pub and everyone was due up at 5:30 (or 6:30) for the coach

After the last go we had to pack up as we were abused from the other corner :thumbdown:

Some people should tuck the bottom edge of their nightshirt into their sock suspenders ;)

The hero of Albuera can wear what he likes..!

All though it has to be said of the weekend that Griff was certainly one of the most sporting chaps there and damned fine company.

I refute that insidious accusation!

Thanks, but I thought EVERYONE there was thoroughly nice and added to a great atmosphere, brilliant event. Have I already said that?! Everyone helpful and despite language barriers, the locals, inc the horse suppliers, were V nice too. Shame about the travel and I'm sorry to have not bumped into, or rolled over, the reknowned J Waller!

Strangers in the night. We must have been only a matter of yards apart. Thankfully I was on a top bunk and so avoided anyone rolling over me. Another time Griff. Apart from getting there and back it was a splendid event.

Fly next time John..!

I had done another battle, participated in step rolling, flown home and done a days work before Carli and Spud got home.

And I think you were less the 10 meters from Mark in the sparts hall.

As much as I would like to argue with you (well, not really, but it makes a good opening line) your are spot on the money there.

Full marks to the horse suppliers and their patience (and ability) to hold conversations in mime.

If adding 'o' onto the end of every word and gesticulating like an epileptic windmill in a gale is your definition of 'mime' then yes, they did a great job.
