    Not a problem, which do you want to enter and I'll move the others to another area - theres a long standing unwritten rule about not entering sheep photos though ;)

    Running out of pictures now, but Frankies saved the day and is my entry for the month.

    Trying to watch the look on his face as he was gripping his seat was such fun. I don't think I frightened him as much as Miller though. He couldn't get over it!

    Having witnessed him having two VERY, VERY near misses within 14 hours I'd sooner be with Miller anytime.

    He made me laugh so much. Sweet guy.

    :)

    It was sooo funny. He'd over shot and so rang me. I talked him back to the main road and he turned left onto the wrong side of the road heading towards a car. I thought he was being funny and making a joke... but he just kept coming!

    I did tell him that this used to happen to us in Florida, not so much nowadays thankfully but just sometimes after we get back it's a little strange.

    The next day while following me he tried to take out a Transit van. He got mixed up at a junction and didn't realise that the van was on the main road and he just pulled right out in front of it. It was a minor road and so he just got flustered. But boy was he lucky!

    I was really pleased to hear that he'd made the John Barleycorn in one piece. It was a relief!

    Alls well that ends well.

    :)

    Was that a Golf he was driving, very reriable, very tough as old boot. If I remember correctly. Just as well. He will be in the hands of an airline pilot tomorrow so he'll be fine. He told me today that when he woke he assumed it would be 7.30 ish but it was nearer 11.00 so he must have been wrecked to sleep through till then. But what a time he had.:D
