Hi Stephen,

great to hear from you. Your remark about wearing smart clothing on public transport reminded me of when I worked on Camden Lock Market at weekends. For a time, I went for a heartstopper breakfast before starting to put the stall up, then tried to live more healthily for a while. Then, I gave in, yielded to temptation and went back to the caff.

"Oh, hullo," the manageress said, "haven't seen you for a while..?"

"Yeah,"I said, "I've been away."

The look she gave me told me my secret was safe with her and I had inadvertently earned greater kudos........

We are a reasonably benign bunch, and tend to gather either in the Upper Compo or Ed0 behind the bowler's arm at the Nursery End, while some shelter from the prevailing wind in the Allen.

After play, Kev takes his wallet moths for a spin to the Tavern, and we come along to spare them the daylight. On days 2 and 3 of a CC game we get quite a few of the players come in, and the Lawman tends to be there as well. As long as we don't get too anorak'ish with them, they tend to be happy to chat.

Please keep Kev away from the water jugs on the bar, as Simmo's shoes are still drying out.
