O
And French too !!
That's the spirit Stuart. I DO LIKE THIS PLAN, exept the fact that all the teachers are mountaineers

Manos,

Don't tell ME about getting old
I'm not a bachelor being in Athens

Then explain the large mountainous Waves to the teachers

If you still can't get it together then I'll come over and drive your RIB for you so at least it doesn't get bored

cheers
Stuart

Next window is likely to be late Spring 2003.
Let's keep in touch-would be thrilled to have you aboard.

I have a similar problem. I cannot get out in my SIB as often as I like because it means I have to leave the wife to look after my disabled boy Robert. It makes me feel guilty leaving her to cope however I know that I need time off. The only saving grace is that Peter my youngest likes the boat and nags me to go out but it is difficult.

Love the idea of a totally spontaneous "lets go for it approach". I am sure it works with your terrifically well adjusted family.
Wouldn't work with mine though.
Oh, we would get to Herm OK, specially with me at the wheel, BUT.........
when we get there..
THE WIFE will have forgotten the tents and camping kit
THE KIDS will have forgotten the food (and more importantly, my booze!)
I will have remembered a vital meeting with my Bank Manager THIS VERY AFTERNOON
And we will receive a tearful mobile phone call from our youngest, asking why we left him on the refueling dock and don't we love him anymore?

It cannot be that bad. Someone like you who has run a huge empire - don't believe a word of it.

Empire? Ruddy hell! First we have JK as GOD. Now we have Brian the Emperor.

Any more Deities, Dictators, Despots, Moguls, Aristocrats or members of The Royal Family hiding out there?

David Manning - Duke of Dudley?
