Strange you should mention that - a pal of ours, a big, burly joiner who mended boats on the river, vanished one day not to be seen for several years until a group of local girls on a hen-night discovered him in a Glasgow club wearing stockings, sussies, the lot!
It must be something in the lemonade up there...
Have a Lemonade then?

Hi Bill

how did the Coniston visit go ?

Were you tempted to put on the suit and dive the depths, or were you satisfied with Great Ale at the Black Bull and decent scran !!!

We didn't get there. Carl's family came to stay with us for a few days so we postponed our visit to Coniston. Soon though...

Go there this time though. Took the wife and kids and did some catching up. The weather was very kind indeed and I had a look inside Pier Cottage for the first time. I also quizzed Robbie about the intake blanks but he doesn't know where they went either. best to make some new ones, methinks.

Got lods of athmosphere hasn't it Bill. The Wife and I spent a couple of nights there in 2004, I think it was. Great waking up and looking down the lake from our room. We were in the top room above the boathouse. Fred & Jo
