Oh how I laughed. Not sure my parents did though.
Shut that door.

Talk of family, talk of places I know....I can handle it.

Talk about Reeve the Baker? Holy crap I want to be in England right now.

I hope you keep us updated during your trip, I hope you have the most wonderful time.

Safe travels LiW, hope the time there really drags and doesn't fly by in the wink of an eye.

Two years almost, since I set foot in Reeve the Baker. Right by the City Cross. Maybe walk down to St Cross and collect the dole at the abbey door I'll say hello for you.

Off to airport in a few hours.

Nothing like a good sausage roll and $15.00 cup of coffee to get you going.

True, but it's either that or whatever Southern Trains has.

If it's Greggs it has to be a Steak Bake.

Hey, great idea SM! Lion, could you please sing a few bars of Ferry 'cross the Mersey while on the ferry going 'cross the Mersey. Could you also please have a pint of Fosters while in Liverpool. I wouldn't wash my socks in Oz Fosters, but it's very nice over there

Also I would like Lion to find the squishiest long jam and cream donut and eat it on my behalf!!

( remember Lion you can sort the weight gain out when you get back. Extra rowing will help)
