    ^cute pup. Looks very healthy too.

    My mom's dog Seis (Spanish for 6) would've been 9 this past July. He passed in Nov last year. I still miss him sometimes.

    ******
    Thanks for the pics. Glad you & the kids enjoyed your holiday. Cheers!

    Really enjoyed the TR Mr 90 thanks for posting. That's a great price for that there London though. Stayed in The Danubius in St Johns Wood (near Lords Cricket Ground) and paid 140 per night in May last year. Twin room breakfast not included. Good transport links, but since I was going to watch cricket at Lords not essential.

    Just stay away from the area they call the mean streets - the long room at Lord's.

    The last time we went back it was at the start of August. Arrived in shorts and t-shirts.

    The first morning was to the shop to buy a bubble jacket, pink fluffy jacket, furry fluffy lined boots (hers, not mine) and woolly fokin' hats.

    Woolly fokin' hats!




    It wasn't a style competition. Notice how I mentioned this was the last time we went back.


    And yes, I'm 5 foot 10, and no snubs, you don't have a passport.

    Yet you made your daughter sit down and took the picture from underneath you. More like 4'11" runt.

    Unless you can prove it, it does not count. You being a runt is well documented and provable.

    At any rate, I will green you because you showed a nice family pic even though you tried to hide the fact that you are a stumpy leprechaun.

    There's probably a few where I'm swinging her dangerously over the edge by both arms.

    ^ But that's no proper leprechaun hat. If you're interested I think I may have something more suitable in my 'Santa's little helpers' costume bag?

    ^ She could have stubbed a toe, Reg.



    Me Ol' Dear is about as good as taking photos as the weather gods are at doing August, bless 'er.


    I also have absolutely no recollection of such a sweater. The only possible explanation is that it was the nearest thing to the clothes shop check-out at 9:01am the day after we arrived.


    Summer, me arse.

    ^^^ Bloody hell, by using the iPhone measuring app, you are only 7 seagulls tall.

    Nice idea with the cropped photo.

    Lulu - Do me a favour love, pretend I'm swinging you by keeping 1 foot on the ground.

    Mini Lulu - Why dad?

    Lulu - Just do it and you get an ice-cream.
    Black diamonds? I shit 'em.

    Arsenal copied it for their home kit this year.


    But yes, that really is a diabolical use of 99% polyester.

    Definitely, the "bacon and egg" clad chaps were certainly raging after Bairstow managed to get himself stumped. Wouldn't let me in the Long Room anyway as I don't go to cricket matches wearing a collar and tie, dress shoes etc and didn't go to Eton or Harrow for that matter.
