Having been unable to access the board for just over a fortnight it is posts like LoL's and that of the Yorkshire follower that make me feel that perhaps catching up on missed threads has been worthwhile.
I normally follow and greatly enjoy Farmer White's contributions, but in my current mission I must confess to having skimmed one or two of them!

My experience has been similar to Bobstan's, as I was out of email contact for about two weeks. I trust I will be forgiven for not reading every single contribution posted while I was away, though I did make a point of reading FW's match summaries. And I particularly appreciated that positive and generous posting from our Bradford friend. He clearly enjoyed our Somerset hospitality and in reciprocation I can say that when I was unfortunate enough to break my leg rather badly in the middle of a cold winter over forty years ago when staying in his city (to which I was confined for the next six weeks) the kindness and warmth of his fellow citizens could not have been bettered.

Most of my time away from the sit was spent in Cornwall, much of it in atrocious weather. It was the week of the election and Penzance was full of posters for the (unsuccessful) Lib Dem candidate. I saw only one poster for a rival party and that was a Labour one sitting in the same window as a Lib Dem one.

Knowing of the boasts that Bagpuss has made of her speedy skill with the secateurs, I wondered whether she has now engaged in a new and profitable extension of her career on frequently seeing signs beside Cornish roads saying "Cats Eyes Removed".
