"I could bring some local produce but it's still flapping and gobbling at the moment ...."

I could get myself banned for following that one liner up Stu

I want to see what happens if the lights go out in the pub whilst we are all there.

How many are going to stand there and deny having any knowledge or skills

Far too much information for a flagrante delicto situation.

Do I detect a rash of iphone texting on this forum nowadays?

Could be interesting. I repaired a cat box on a night out once with a circular saw and nails after 2 shots of absinthe and 8 pints

I have to admit to two of us once fixing a ventilation panel in a poultry shed when more than two parts to the wind. One of the wives drove and I can't remember who's but I can remember arguing over which one of us was more capable of getting the screwdriver into a terminal on the din rail.

Just typical that the one night when we all went out, one of the farms decided to have a breakdown.

I haven't got a label maker any more. I found that out yesterday

But, I wrote to PE magazine a little while back and now I'm hoping like mad that I wrote a star letter

Now that's optimism madam

When I was a kid I spent a bit of growing up time around Pirbright. I was mates with a local kid who announced one day that he was getting a new Raleigh Chopper bike.

It was all a bit far fetched, given his background and circumstances, and it turns out it was first prize in a Xmas colouring competition - he'd spent hours not going over the lines etc and was totally convinced he was going to win this bike in time for Xmas. He was so wound up about it in the end that my old man and a few of his squad went and bought a chopper so he wouldn't be blown away Xmas morning. I recall a few of us tipped up our pocket money as well

I guess to this day he may well believe that he won the thing

Funny how something triggers a memory - I'd forgotten all about it

Sorry I can`t be there with you lovable lot but I will be raising my glass to you on the appropriate date.

I would be nice if in the new year we could organise a few "Shin Digs" in various parts of the country to let a few of us forumers meet up and have a laugh.

Some of us are not handy for the capital, never been on TV or in magazines
