On friday, Whilst sorting out her clothes for our holiday er on board found £40 in old ten pound notes, changed them in the bank Saturday morning, spent Saturday afternoon! It's obviously the ". Money finding/spending seaon" . I wonder how many forumites are speculating now where there could be treasure in their house?

In Lanzarote. We decided to go back in October so I never changed back any money.

Unfortunately business got in the way and we did not go back. Years later when we were moving from Bucks to Norfolk I found a wallet with £250 in worthless pesetas.

What you have never missed etc.

Surprised to see this up here in flat cap land, not bad for Woodfordes, bit like Ghost Ship. Wood be better without the sparkler though (just to upset Trevor) :default_norty:

Was proudly watching the eldest son do his Geezer Butler bit in Leeds and had some very refreshing and quaffable "Yorkshire Lager" which hails from the Great Yorkshire Brewery out near Pickering. A good night was had!

My day yesterday: 6 hours 48 minutes in the cramped cockpit of a glider (I'm too tall for this sport)
flying a 511 km pre-declared task around Hamburg airspace.  The last leg was into a head wind
finding me South of the river Elbe short of 200m altitude to get home with a bunch of
windmills threatening to put nasty cuts under my fuselage.  After several tries under dying
clouds (at time accompanied by a stork) I found a thermal to provide the necessary
height gain as shown to be needed by the onboard Nav system plus a bit to spare.

Saturday left home 12:00 ish, drove to Yorkshire, Knaresbrough to be exact, got there at about 16:30 which in a 34 year old landrover is good going.. very hot trip though,

Imediately given I nice cold pint by my brother, and we sat on his verandah overlooking the river.., 18:30 wandered along waterside under the railway viaduct up to the venue for my Brothers 50th birthday party. They had  hired a hall, which luckily has a enclosed court yard out the back. The court yard was all decorated up, a band (in which his wife sings occasionally) and disco on. Vast amounts of food available,  large amount of their friends plus their daughters friends. A very good night.

Got back around 12:30, to bed in the back of the landrover, (they had so many visitors their daughter was in a tent in the garden). 

04:30 sunday morning got up, setup the woman in the black box with instructions for home, and set off in the nice cool air, by 08:00 all windows and vents open in the landrover.

One idiot Porche driver coming down Leadenham bypass the wrong side of the double white lines...

Got home around 09:00, went to bed for a couple of hours...
