Have a very happy birthday, Jim! Hopefully whenever I get up to see Eric someday we can say hello to you too :D


Absolutely!

Thanks all for the birthday wishes. :)

Yes, a lovely night, but not sure how life can continue this way. Not wanting to put a damper on things, but apart from us there were but two others in the venue. A third came in and had a pint, but I didn't see him there for long. When the those two left it would have been empty had we not arranged our night. How can such a venue survive to put on ten or twelve kegged craft ales and four real ones every night? Either there's a lot of money around or there's a lot of debt!

Anyway, a great night, glad I was there, what the Hell happened to the seeds I don't know, but I've arrived without any, sorry Craig.

Yes thanks to all, nice to meet old and new again :-) & whilst we didn't get a photo of glasses raised we do have two witnesses that Eric runs for Metros when late!

As to the Seeds I recon the barman must have just picked the bag up thinking it was rubbish, what were they were seeds for?

Glad to hear you had a good night. :)

As it happens, I'm slightly delicate this morning myself.

Felt alright myself probably because I took it easy with those campfire porters, very glad to have made my bus home, less of a run than last time as well. Hope you've had a few cuppas and got yourself sorted out :)

Definitely a good night, apart from waiting about 15 minutes for the cash machine (lots of students drawing out tenners!).
Eric I will have to dig out some more borage seeds for you.

Just found them safe and sound. Had a top pocket I didn't know I had. Thanks.
