Re: Mid-summer Bits and Bobs

Always good to see Keighley, I have a cluster of cousins around there, Settle as well though dad was born the other side of the river in Giggleswick, grandparents are buried at the village church. Quite a local then, eh? No rain here either and it's 29C at the moment. Lots of watering to do tonight...
