Oh, b****r. I navigated away from what I was writing and it all fell into a black hole.
Anyway . . Thanks to Biff saying I could stay in the man cave, I got an extra day in the sun, and anyone who showed the slightest interest in the MacRib has had a recounting (as time has passed - increasingly incoherent!) of the story of everyone's involvement.
Whisper has only stood still long enough to drink his current cup of tea - and then he was off again, making sure everyone on site knows about the rib and the auction.
I've had a great few days, met loads of lovely people, and acquired yet more tan lines on the already impressive patchwork quilt across my shoulders.
Thank you to everyone involved, in all your many ways, in getting to this stage. Next weekend is going to be awesome!
