Yes it's late, much later than I would usually blog, but I wanted to share with you all our evening. I have mentioned in the past I think that Mike recently got in contact with an old friend (also called Mike). They had been friends from the time they could walk into trouble but lost contact over 35 years ago. Over the last few months we've met up several times and enjoyed tales of scrumping, cricket games up walls, getting to (and back from) Weston-Super-Mare on £1 of petrol (3 gallons I'm told) and of course the ball hunting and storing. They collected up balls (their origin shrouded in intrigue) and kept them in a garden shed. The shed was so full they fell out and they had to block the windows up.
All in all we had a fantastic evening. I am so very pleased that Mike's flight was delayed by a week. If it hadn't been put back, we would not have had this evening.
