AND - - It's my EPZ Second Birthday today - - and I didn't realise until I saw the two stars!!! Wink

A bit late for me on a Saturday, but what the heck!

Been a fab day at the Airshow, gr8 to see lots of EPZ friends, and put faces to names at last!

Well worth the VIP tickest - - had an absolute ball - - got BigCol fast asleep on our settee now, after a few ales and an Indian takeaway = = well, that's life!

Catch up soon - - thanks for looking - - off to recharge both mine and the camera's batteries in preparation for tomorrow Smile

Cheers!

Stunner Fran - have my award in appreciation. Last time I saw sharp arrowes like this was with a certian Mr Hensons shot. This might not have the colour, but I love the diagnal comp and well... its just spot on really isn't it?

Hope you had a good day. The mod with Mark looks a little damp :-(
