Nice one, Alan. That Easter was quite something, wasn't it? Di and I met a lot of nice people at the parties. Sadly, we were so new to the scene that most names, many from this Forum, didn't stick.

But thanks to Jools and his slide show on disc that I got from him after the event, I can at least picture the Crazy Canadian. There's a snap of her rockin' the night away with my equally, if not crazier, daughter Katie. It was taken long after Di and I had given up and tottered off to bed.

I think Priddy was also still standing, and, reputedly, the last to leave.

Cheers...

Nice pictures Alan. Mike, at that week-end of the SOC send-off, was the young lady who wore a Harrison Ford type hat any connection to you?

It is all a bit secret at the moment but If you are a gambling man i would put money on it. Watch this space and I am sorry for making you spend loads of money on a RIB !!!! Alan P
