The Mighty Boosh

By richardwheel  
First morning on the WASP on tour/suffolk meet saw me driving from sheffield at 2.30 to meet up with paul, fran, kate barclay and chriscj. I was told to bring wellies but didn't have any so turned up in the usual walking boots. Not the best plan. 2 minutes in and I was soaked up to my knees. Anyway, for the rest of the weekend I've been styling some very fashionable tesco carrier bags as waterproof socks Smile

Anyway, I think it was worth it....

Certainly was worth risking wet feet to get an image as good as this! I like the way you've caught the wave crashing against the low sun.

Well, you spent long enough trying to catch some of these, I'd be disappointed if there wasn't one this good ... however, there is, so I'm not Wink

Great timing, pleasure to be in your company as ever Mr W [jnr]. Catch up with you soon.

22 Feb 2009 7:42PM
crikey, that was quick to hit 30 Smile

Ian (newey) - wait for some of pauls others, he's only teasing with that one, trust me.....and another thing, I didn't look stupid Grin

It was a cracking weekend Kate, I enjoyed every minute of it. You'll be glad to hear as I'm a tight northerner, I've dried out the bags ready for next time (smells a bit fishy though Tongue )

Good to meet you Adam and Clive, hope the shots of the mill have turned out good for you,

I'm not your son if thats what you're wondering martin Wink it's just that Mr W was taken by yourself and as I'm the younger of us both, I seem to have adopted the junior part (them two are a bit wierd aren't they Wink)
