He's not getting any of my Born in the Borders beers, whisky or Rioja this year. And he owes me and Muley a bottle from last year. Plus interest :wink:

No, it was the red wine what done it. Anyway, more fool you for pitching your tent downwind ;)

Anyway Mark, you'll be pleased ~ it's a Woodstock revival weekend ~ period hairstyle isn't mandatory but you've nailed it anyway. ;)

You'll need to wear the afro wig Scott - baldy heids weren't around at Woodstock :twisted: Get that denim jacket and those loons dusted down :wink: I can get some period/Woodstock clothing from Karen's thrift shop if you want ?

Kaftan, Afghan coats, headbands, John Lennon glasses anyone ?

Just back from a rock week in the sun - Bonne Jovial, Dizzy Lizzy, Iron 2 Maiden, Dirty DC, Stated Quo, Shitesnake etc... so well oiled up for the Silverstone music.

I suspect we'll be in our usual spots, either near the Cobras/bogs/showers or, if its hot, over by the hedge

With all that sun my hair has gone a bit manic so look for the hedge by the hedge :lol:

You, Mark & Jim. 3 cars do not make a parade. We had a Lotus parade 2012 iirc, looking at photos I had 6 M100 ahead of me and I'm sure there were more behind, a dozen of us for sure. See you soon . :drunk:
