By Chertsey Bridge looking over the Thames at the campsite
My girl - van in London by the Thames - note the blue TWA mug on the table
Lego man, my hero
My girls in Wales last week, brilliant shot by my son in law
Brighton in the rain
Em at birthday celebrations
Jenny, birthday girl with beau Andy
I put them in the order I was thinking - the one from Wales was taken last week but it is stuck in the middle.... tricky to get them in order I have noticed.
Have a good weekend you all, off on my travels again this weekend :)

I am after a photo of Bonteheim... learnt all about that building today, apparently the boys lived there until Sept 63 hence I did not know what it was.. being there 64-67
I have nearly finished the NL and need a photo to go with an article - the swing bridge could also be an option... knowing a lot of you guys were there before then you might be able to help.
It is raining here in Dorset - thank to you all for posting reunion photos, I have used as many as I can for the photo gallery.

This arrived from a friend of mine today and I just know you need calming, so I am passing it on to all. I intend to try it before I go out tonight!
Subject: Finishing things
I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me today, and
we all could probably use more calm in our lives.
A doctor on TV this morning said the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you
have started, So I looked around my house to see things I'd started and
hadn't finished. So far I have managed to finish off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle
of Sharrdnnay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of wum, a pocket of Prungles,
tha mainder of bot Prozic and Valiuminun scriptins, the lars of the chesescke
an a box a shocletz. Yu haf no idr how bludy fablus I feel rite now. Plaese
sned dhis orn to dem yu fee ar in ned ov iennr pisss. An telumau blody

BEST EVER SENIOR CITIZEN JOKE
A little silver-haired lady calls her neighbor and says, "Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get started."
Her neighbor asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"
The little silver haired lady says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster."
Her neighbor decides to go over and help with the puzzle.
She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.
He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says,
"First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster."
He takes her hand and says, "Secondly, I want you to relax. Let's
have a nice cup of tea, and then," he said with a deep sigh ............
“Let's put all the Corn Flakes back in the box.!

A bit of England
In honour of all guitarists
I visited yesterday with my daughter, it poured with rain and the traffic was horrendous but the flowers and gardens were beautiful. This is only a flavour as I took 127 pictures, some are on facebook :)

Spot the van... we were one nighters so stuck out on a limb.
Ashwell, had butchers, bakers and a candlestick maker, three pubs, one church (could have been more but never saw it) a historical Spring and voted best village in 2010.
No I don't get commission on promoting small English villages but worth a visit, nice campsite too.
