The idea was to take Donald back to the crash site. Not sure why though, I'd have thought he'd have had quite enough of it by then. But the weather was shocking and waves were literally breaking over the deck. Poor Carl was the only one without an overcoat but there's no way he'd have let the side down so he stood there taking waves in the face wearing only a suit. Silly boy...
Betcha he'd be only too glad to stand and get waves in his face now-and we all wish he could too-stern stuff that wee guy!

Carl and I reckoned we couldn't have got any wetter if we'd thrown ourselves in the lake as soon as we'd arrived and that was in no way an exaggeration. After the funeral we went to Windermere via Hawkshead to buy dry clothes, changed in the public toilets at the ferry landing, (smelly as I recall), then crossed to Bo'ness for the wake where the pair of us sat at the bar with Tonia and got bladdered on white wine. Well, Tonia and I did. Carl never touched a drop. How the hell you have fun drinking diet lemonade I'll never know and will likely never find out now...

Wish there was a thing called a pisscam-records people getting steamin then plays it back to them next hungover shaking morning showing them how bent out of shape they were!- :twisted:

All together now " OH, I'M A HAPPY ANORAK, I'M A HAPPY ANORAK" :lol:

ps. Pier Cottage........... that guy was a right HAT !
Imagine how pee'd off he'll be when K7 returns to the lake! All these people standing outside his house, pointing and taking pictures quite legally and nothing he can do.

Oh, we will not be standing anywhere near his house for more than one reason, believe me !
To add to Bill's point of not going there now or in the future..... it makes good sense to launch K7 from elsewhere anyway because although historically PIER COTTAGE should be the place, I doubt it (or the old geezer) could cope with the crowds and technical requirements required for the team.
So Novie.... looks like you and your baseball bat for security are out of a job. :lol:

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...

hi Bill

so whats on the agenda for your Coniston visit this week ...

Are you plunging into dark lakes with a wet suit ?
Or having a few Lemonades in the Black Bull ... ?
Many Miles away, there's a shadow on a door, of a cottage on the Shore, of a Dark Scottish Lake.....

Just a quiet weekend with the family. No diving but perhaps a lemonade or two.
