Good news! I chanced upon "Fectric McTonne: A Caledonian Ovid Improved" by William McGonnagall who somehow got hold of Fectric's papers and published them in  single volume. Here is an unfinished ode called "The Spectre from Milford Haven sent to me by the Accursed Witch Queen". 

One day as I lay 'neath my cairn,
not doing much, just sort of starin',
it chanced my eye should fall upon
a ghastly ghost! Then it was gone,
Much vexed, I bit upon my lip,

Soon o'er me the ghost stood loomin'
and in a voice that seemed not human
it asked me quite politely will
I point the route, the way to Mill-
ford Haven but I said "nay"
and bade him be upon his way.

Why it was, I do not know

Bother, don't think I'm going to make it this year  Sad

Too much real life: loft conversion and new kitchen to sort out!  Cry

Anyway, have fun and I'll see you next year!  I'll just have to console myself with a Christmas order to Pendraken  Cheesy

Cheers!

It's all part of a new fitness regime: when you have to walk two flights of stairs to get the milk and then remember you forgot the butter the miles soon add upů Wink

Tomorrow will be general mooching about in my flash black Lance and Longbow polo shirt and my old school Lanyard with a Leman moniker. Sunday I will be in the BBB game wearing my olive green 10mm T shirt. Sounds like I work for J-P Gaultier. See you around folks.

Well the show is heaving! Have visited our hosts and picked up pre-orders and a few extra bits. Plenty of stuff to see, but am manfully resisting temptation. Not that I won't succumb at some point in the future.

I still want to know how Leman manages to fit in such a small t-shirt.

I'm sure that the weather will boost attendance, which is nice for the organisers, traders etc but not always welcome by the attendees. Last time I went it was hard to move around the main hall of traders and that was on a Sunday. The gaming hall itself wasn't too bad.
