In his absence maybe Maggi should book the bus!


No hurry for that, Mark, besides, Ian has a special rapport with the Bus Co. Booking Lady, I'd hate to come between them .

Hi Maggie

The NE England contingent are planning to come in a modest charabanc as well - as the summer visits organiser I seem to have become responsible for this. All I can say is summer comes early in Dunblane! ;D

We'll see you all there

If anyone wants to email me a photo of them from their youth, then I foresee an amusing thread where we play: guess which wally, er forumist, this is? Frightening thought, isn't it? In case any of you think I may alreadyhave incriminating/daft photos of you in my possession.. just send money!

That's the idea, Fred. Are you sure this IS you?  Young, innocent, trusting? Really?
Keep your  photos coming in to me, Folks, I've received a few already....... when I get a bunch I'll start a quiz thread with them. Makes a change from playing charades at the office party, huh?

Well Fred, it just seems like yesterday and we all had long hair in those days - and the music.
