"1432.... outside R3... bus to Maidenhead, train from there". "Umm... don't you think it may have been a good idea to tell me that before I buy the TRAIN ticket?". "I can give you a refund". "Good, please do so". So sorry guys and gals I won't be seeing you in London today. I'm sure you'll have a good old laugh at my expense (I'm certain that I would if roles were reversed) and have a couple for me. Must remember to check train schedules next time.

:cry:


If you'd got the bus to Maidenhead we'd now most likely be on the same train. Would've been an adventure getting home, though.

mind you, nothing new there.

Y'all have fun now!
Sadly, we had a prior commitment and can't make it. Stuck in the TX hill country, I'm afraid.

And that was it really. I'm fucked if I'm relying on a bus connecting at Maidenhead for Didcot late at night - pissed.

Sorry guys. But it just wasn't meant to be.

Missed my planned train by watching Palace lose again, so will be 30 minutes later.
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

Sorry, Carol, that you endured my whining about life at Peterborough City Council. But thanks for listening. Always a pleasure to meet you, and every other BCBer on our nights out in London.

My first Jolly in some time and a refreshingly lovely experience. Great to see lots of old faces and a new one (Quix).

It was a fab night. Thank you all for being so welcoming to Michele (those of you who were still there when she arrived)! She may or may not join BcB. Perhaps she could just be an honorary Lundun JU member? :)

Great photos! - especially the one of Carol and Marion, and the one of Johnny on his own, smiling.

I've got more Disky product

a label like Dutch Disky

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"

Normally, Disky are clever at repackaging

Nonsense, Andrew. I asked you how you were getting on! Hang in there.
