  1. He's looking well Alex. Has he recovered all his mobility?
  2. Well done Vicki. Keeping the flag flying for legal lurcher work until we're all forced to become criminals.
  3. Great account Bosun. Hope your rabbit situation improves. There aren't as many here as there used to be but still plenty for a few runs.
  4. While am at that place al think about it but a won't get steamed up aboot it.
