But not close enough to see the pride of possession eh?

Seriously good hand gun James.

way diminishes the strength of the enemy." Niccolo Machiavelli

Nice to see you got my "wardrobe malfunction" - I went steaming in to the first scrap and my bloomin' hose decided to fall down! :D

I waved to Jack, but everyone else studiously ignored / avoided looking at me! - guess it was a case of not recognising me with my "clothes" on!!!!

Becky gave Albie a HUUUUUGE bone which he duely demolished that same evening - he was very happy on the sofa that night I can tell you - bar some very noxious farts...

We left Rufford just as the air helecopter arrived - who got flown away?

It drew bigger crowds that the first battle!!!! MOPs are obviously baying for the sight of blood!!

I think you have a different definition of nice to the rest of the world though..... :twisted:
None of the ideas expressed above are really mine. I get them from Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.
