Well, yesterday really but I've been rather poor again the last couple
of days so I missed the opportunity to post.

Anyway, it was twenty years ago on the 15 September 1997 that the late
Charles Hankel of this parish wined (or rather, beered) and dined me in
the Falstaff Bar in Brussels, then saw me back to my hotel and kissed me
goodnight at the door.

Doesn't time fly? Umra was but a wean then, four or five years old at
most. Umrats have come and umrats have left us since then and some
reading this won't know what I'm talking about but its good to know its
always here to come home to.

But some of us will remember very well. I still think of him very
fondly indeed. Thanks for the reminder, Rosie.

TBH, I'm ambivalent about this one. I shall take this under advisement,
but I'm inclined to say no. Doesn't seem to sit quite right with me.

Blimey, those things take some turning over! Here you go:
"The things you have to do, Matron."

(As it's an exclamation, I'd replace the full stop with an exclamation
mark too, but I'm too exhausted after uninverting that comma.)

Well, yesterday really but I've been rather poor again the last couple
of days so I missed the opportunity to post.
Anyway, it was twenty years ago on the 15 September 1997 that the late
Charles Hankel of this parish wined (or rather, beered) and dined me in
the Falstaff Bar in Brussels, then saw me back to my hotel and kissed me
goodnight at the door.
Doesn't time fly? Umra was but a wean then, four or five years old at
most. Umrats have come and umrats have left us since then and some
reading this won't know what I'm talking about but its good to know its
always here to come home to.
But some of us will remember very well.  I still think of him very
fondly indeed. Thanks for the reminder, Rosie.
Him ?  ITYM them...

Rosie didn't sit quite right for a while afterwards either aiui !

Not what I was aiming for :) In fact I thought the later addition was
possibly more worthy, but of course the neoBTM's decision is final...

Likewise here; only a day or two ago, I remarked to Mrs. McToodles that
eating plums (from our garden) and some 81% choccie was very much Chankle -
even if I was eating them as separate items and not as choccie coated
plums.

He’s never forgotten here: we mentioned chocolate plums the other day and
he definitely was an Aldi/Lidli’er in the making. He’d have liked the idea
of a Lidl veg box!

He’s never forgotten here: we mentioned chocolate plums the other day and
he definitely was an Aldi/Lidli’er in the making. He’d have liked the idea
of a Lidl veg box!
Sincerely Chris
A recent veg box had 3 packs of leeks and some loose sweet potatoes amongst
other items in the box, we had leek and sweet potato pie yesterday (and
several more servings in the ‘fridge now;-) ).

Well, yesterday really but I've been rather poor again the last couple
of days so I missed the opportunity to post.
Anyway, it was twenty years ago on the 15 September 1997 that the late
Charles Hankel of this parish wined (or rather, beered) and dined me in
the Falstaff Bar in Brussels, then saw me back to my hotel and kissed me
goodnight at the door.
Doesn't time fly? Umra was but a wean then, four or five years old at
most. Umrats have come and umrats have left us since then and some
reading this won't know what I'm talking about but its good to know its
always here to come home to.
I remember Charles fondly, of course but I also recall your trip to
Belgium. Have you ever regretted it?

Yesterday was also one of my wedding anniversaries, definitely not the one
I regret.
