I envy you for being at the test match at Trent bridge. A keen player and follower of the game for many, many years I think that as a match it ranks about the best. My first County match i saw was at Worcester for the 1948 Australians, including Bradman.

Hi Colleen I was wondering if you were going to do a cricket one.Smile V1 is great love the shadows made on the ground by the team.
You could think they were doing it for the camera.SmileSmileSmile this is a nice set.

Who said Test Matches aren't exciting (my wife, I think GrinGrin). v1 & v2 are very good compositions in a fine selection, Colleen. Roll on Thursday.
