    I think these babes are too small for KarenW to be interested,she only likes them when they hit 200 pounds weight these were about 2 ounces.
    Somehow I missed this thread and updates while I was away in Scotland with only very limited internet access.

    Ian - I'm really sorry to read your results weren't what you were hoping for and hope this doesn't mean anything too serious or bad....

    As for those small bunnies playing with your shoelaces, I can share the joy of this. And remember, if you'd ever like to sit in a garden surrounded by big happy bunnies lolloping around and chewing through your shoelaces (and shoes) then you know there's always a driveway here complete with tap and free hook-up. We're perfectly positioned for touring the Wye Valley, come and go as you please or just sit and fuss the buns. The offer is there and I very much hope you'll accept it.

    Your on-line persona seems very confident, friendly and attractive. Just get out there and talk to people. You'll easily make friends - maybe not find a soul mate - but so what? There's a nice Spanish saying that goes "mas vale solo que mal acompaƱado" and you being a linguist (I think - or at least very knowledgeable about languages) can soon work out what that means.

    Just keep on making new friends - forget about being solo or not.

    I have found having a very small motorhome seems to be a great introduction - everywhere I go with my C15 people come up and talk to me - ask me questions, (what does it do to the gallon? what "facilities" has it got? or tell me that years ago they had one and how much they loved it.
    its true that its better to be,under some circumstances,solo,but it is also true
    el hombre busca a una pareja, como la polilla de la busca de la llama.
    So,I will keep hoping and looking.Meanwhile,I have a lot of meets and a big rally to run. see you in a field somewhere,Im the one chewing a grass stalk

    Hey, come on, Ian, we're all routing for you! I remember our first meet and you greeted Carole and I as if we were lost souls-and we were. You made us so welcome. As everyone has said, you have a lot of work to do, many rallies and meets to organize, so no slacking. We won't allow it, or I won't come to the xmas meet. So there!
    Chin up, mate.

    Graham (and Carole)

    Hi Ian sorry to hear about your results but that won't be an excuse to get out of organising a few meets next year! We need you to keep us in order. Missed you in the Cotswolds but hope to catch up soon.

    You are a star at organising such lovely friendly meets and just so glad that you stepped across that chasm all that time ago! Just take it easy.

    To top it all the change of wiring to the telephone (relocated elsewhere in the house) led to the broadband going down - only got it back today with change of router/cables etc...

    Yes visit to caves deffo on...

    I am sorry to hear your news, Ian. I am very pragmatic about life, if you wake up in the morning, that day is gifted to you. There are no guarantees for any of us! Carpe diem!

    You are a lovely man and you were very kind to us when Aud had her op. One of the pleasures I look forward to when we come for a meet is an Ian Hug - I'd put it in the top three of Best Hugs In the UK, in fact, I can't think of a better one so that makes you No 1

    Love to you,

    Barbara Anne and Audrey!

    Ian, you have so many friends here and we're all routing for you. Don't let the 'black dog' sit on your shoulder for too long, send him else where.
    During those long hours before dawn get up and make a cup of tea and think of us... that's enough to send any 'black dog' howling away!

    Di.
