    Week 25- Essex bunfight - but surprisingly compliant and good humoured. dodgy bit of romford and have to doubloe park the porsche- give a barmaid the keys and am amazed when it is still in position on return.

Get to watch one of our decent childrefs last 10 mins. on adjacent pitch- maintains his cool (excellent Tcuping) as homers hammer at and over tryline for elusive winning score.He had arrived worringly close to k.o which ...

    week 20 -new year's day -no game but day at the london parade as am lunch host to 16 Texas CHEERLEADERS (it's a tough job but...). torrential cold rain but the gutsy daughters of the republic are one of the 20% of partcipants who go the distance (finishing like drowned but pretty rats).
