It was great to catchup with you Ross, even if it was only for a chat for a few minutes.
Sounds like you had an awesome trip.

Beers,
Doc

Pumpy had us laughing all w/e - I'll post a more detailed chapter later when I've got time - but in the meantime here's Pumpy with Tony's dog, which Pumpy thought was a greyhound - LOL - It got the moniker of "Pumpys little helper" from there on in

oh and the "tamworth flier" is my ex husband in law's dog if that makes sense.

He comes and stayes from time to time.

It was the best.

The flier, AKA "jimmy" came into the room (and If you can imagine this said in a pommy accent) Pumpy said...........

"as it got a bit of greyhound in it"

All over your honour.
