Not been home long, thanks to Booby and Chrissy for a good day. Angie well enjoyed it and now wants her own fronty! ..... Andy, see yer selling the 2.8 already, cash be okay?
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Comments on 'O-no' the truck may be left here

Wow, that was a good day/night :lol:

As others have said huge thanks to Chrissy and Bobster for their hospitality and this mornings bacon + egg butty :wink: And thanks to Audra for babysitting an inebriated BoxCleva last night :drink: And to the mad chef and his assistants on the BBQ.

Cracking night last night a few drinkes were had . Poor Horseygirl must have wondered what the hell she had walked into :twisted:

That's about all for now as my energy levels are somewhat depleted :oops:

Looking forward to the beach party now 8)

I've not been myself for a couple of weeks but you guys sure are a great tonic.

It was great to catch up with old freinds and make some new ones. Once again the catering, from hosts and guests, was spot on; hot drinks on tap all day and the curry just hit the spot.

It was good to see that Bobby eventually managed to find some down time to to rest in a deck chair with a refreshing pop and join in with the banter having done some marathon work on Drifts' truck.

"That looks big enough"
"Nah, lets make it bigger"

All you need is a wire brush, a hammer and a sparkler.

Image Image
Nice hat... Hey, I have one like that.

Entertainment took many forms:

Image
"Michael row your boat ashore"

Image
"Three words, first word, three sylables"

Image
Which one's the dipstick"

Image
I wonder how long that'll stay there for ?

Whilst the following are not directly Frontera related, Chrissy was good enough to introduce me to the other loves of her life:
