Well it didn't rain.....well not until the very end & then it was only a few spots. This year we made 14 people (17 if you include the dogs) and out of those there was only Sheila, Mandy, Pete & myself from last year. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves & we were all reasonably good with our picnics. Angus the 3 legged Westie stole the show and everybodys hearts, giving frequent and brilliant impressions of a Meerkat. Pete will post the pictures soon. I must apologise for the lack of 'get up & go' from Pete & I, it was all the fault of the b****rs who at 2.15am, set fire to a load of tyres which had been dumped by our back fence Friday afternoon. Thanks to the quick response of the Fire Brigade & for Pete using the garden hose until the FB arrived, we only lost 4 trees & will only have to replace a couple of sections of fence, it could have been a lot worse. Finally got back to bed at about 3.30am but only managed to cat nap for what was left of the night. Meanwhile, Mandy didn't know anything had happened until we told her about it this morning!!!
