Visiting MR!

Yesterday we set off from Stourport in search of Narrowboat Matilda Rose, heading for Lower Heyford on the South Oxford canal we arrived at 11am to find Graham practising his F1 pit stop we approached in the car he was playing at being the F1 pit crews front jackman using his sack trolley as the jack - in the interests of authenticity we should have been approaching him at 60mph but we thought that might have spoilt the game somewhat - visit friend and 'splat' him in a country lane..perhaps not.
Anyway we parked up and got the sack of dog food out of the car - the real reason Graham had his sack trolley with him (unless anyone knows anything different..), and toddled off down the towpath to find the boat.
Floyd managed to 'fall' in the canal before we got to the boat so we arrived with a wet dog and had to dry the little tyke before boarding.

Happy Graham

We had a lovely visit and enjoyed catching up with our cruising buddies.  If all goes to plan, we will be rejoining them in the spring and heading off to the R. Nene and the Fens for summer 2012.

Delighted to hear summer plans. Watch out for stalkers!
David has a broken arm - we are on week six of a 12 week sign off from work - although he has returned to light tractoring duties in order to keep himself (and me!) sane!

Hi Amanda
12 weeks, goodness that have been some break!!! What happened?
As for next year, our 'stalkers' are not only welcome but expected!

Hi Both
We'd be delighted to see you, of course! We were just talking about you last night...

How many stalkers might you be expecting......?

Nb Caxton said...

We think 2 but could it be more than two Lisa?
