Enjoy

Thanks Gents,

And congrats to all those who also been around a decade or more. I'm sure like me you have made some great mates along the way.

Took my wife out for a cracking dinner last night, so inadvertently celebrating. We were quite shocked at the bill but then she pointed out all the Bourbon I had drunk..

Cheers,

Roy

This prompted me to look. Will be 10 years next spring for myself. That has gone by quickly. What struck me back then as well as today is the vast knowledge of this entity called the forum. It has been a pleasant ride here in the back seat.

I had to check too - 12 years next month, so still just settling in

This forum has pretty much carried my hobby.

Thank you to everyone!
