interesting! put me down as a highly probable please; came thro barnstable yesterday on way from NEC -we were aiming for atlantic village [discount shopping outlet] the roads are atrocious with deep potholes everywhere but at least the local council are in evidence with many road maintainance workers repairing various parts of the atlantic highway.
The show was excellent but weather so cold and snowing on tuesday-wish they would move show to spring/autumn.

it would be good to meet some 'real' people, so yes we are interested and available. What normally happens at these meets? If there is anything such as 'normal'. This would be our first meet - David & Judy

no sex here we`re british!!!! and its devon, we got far too many children already and you can only serve if your sober.

do you prefer malts from the west coast or from the east of scotland or irish.

Hi Dee,

Should that be Hi Dee Hi, I wonder?

I might be able to make it this trip but nothing is finalised yet. We have Bath Championship Dog Show on May 28th, Southern counties Ch. Show (Newbury) on 5th June and 3 Counties Ch. Show (Malvern) on 11th June. If we are having a `barbecue summer` then it would be nice to pop down after the last show.

I am not keen to do Devon and Cornwall at the height of Summer (for obvious reasons), so we will do our best to get down there in June.

We will require a red carpet and the finest steaks for the Whippets. You do not need to make a fuss for me and the wife. As you can tell, we Northerners take our dogs seriously.:D

It is 23.58 pm and I must log off before midnight.

See you soon.

Has anyone got the gps coordinates for AJ`s street?

I need somewhere to empty the cassete and waste water (and let the dogs have a crap).:)

AJ will not even know I have been there, unless its warm and the wind is in the wrong direction:p

Although I forgot about the dogs digging up his lawn.:D

And crapping.

And pulling his plants out.
