And a bloody good soup it was too

The chicken was delicious, the beer was put aside and the wine came out, 5% to 14% you see where this is going ?

Tsu was ASTONISHED to find a vegetable she liked and added it to the list

1: sweetcorn ............... Check
2: Peas .................Check
And now peppers as well !!!

Dinner was finished, and we retired once more to the watch the sun set and generally lark around,

"Fancy a rum and coke Cody ?" said Gordi, "Just a small one" I lied, and so began the evening.

We FINALLY cracked the whiskey I took up an partook of a dram or 2.............or 3 etc.

It all gets a bit blurry after that LOL.

Gbro you're a gent for having us and being such a good sport,

The next morning was like World war Z !!!!

Hiya Cody!

Hiya Elae and Lianne!

Congratulations both on your exam results! We have heard so much about you. (All good, your Dad is very proud of you indeed

Sunday morning was HARD!!
But, given the amount of alcohol that we had consumed, I think I got off fairly lightly on the hangover front!

Mrs C kindly offered to buy breakfast, so we headed just along the road to “The Dancing Midge” cafe (which used to be MY off-license (liquor) shop back in the day!)

The weather seemed to know that our weekend gathering was drawing to a conclusion, because the skies were getting grey now, with just the odd glint of sunlight peeking through and sparkling on the waves in front of the cafe.
Breakfast was superb! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and then we wandered off for a short walk and sheltered in one of the brick shelters built for that very purpose! (Sheltering!!)
I found a poster in the shelter which read “Are You Housebound? Then Phone This Number for advice and......” ???? If you’re Housebound then how do you get to the Shelter to read the poster???

Our thoughts quickly turned to heading home, and a quick check of everyone’s departure times confirmed that Jane had to be at the Train station in Glasgow first, then a couple of hours later the rest of the troops would be leaving from Glasgow airport.
So, we trotted off to catch the ferry back to the mainland, and said goodbye to the “Mysterious Island”.
We had a bit of a laugh on the Ferry, sitting beside a guy who was having “one last beer” before hitting the mainland again!



Then we shared a big hug, and headed off to drop Jane at the station in Glasgow.
After a very quick fly-past drop-off of Jane in Glasgow, we headed out to the Kelvingrove Art gallery to show Cody the fine wood work that surrounds the entrance way.



The last port of call before the airport was Glasgow’s Riverside Transport Museum to see the Tall ship (which I mistakenly thought was the Carrick, it is in fact The Glen Lee!). A few quick photos, and then we had to go to the airport to say goodbye.




I can honestly say that I had a wonderful time throughout, and that the company I enjoyed was first class. The generosity of spirit and material gifts was just amazing, and I cannot thank my fellow shed-dwellers and gatherers enough for making my weekend so special!









THANKS GUYS!

I remembered to thank Chrissie and the Boys too, for letting me go to the Gathering in the first place, and they LOVED the gifts that they received too!

She is lovely and totally unique and hand made by an artisan who used to sell them in Buckfast Abbey, so her energies are wonderful.

Buckfast Abbey

One of my favourite energy spots in the world....I miss that place
.
Although once I move down to my girls, it will be do'able on a long day trip!

I can't tell you all how much I have enjoyed the pics and tales of your amazing trip! Reminded me of my many trips to a quaint little seaside town in Rockport Massachusettes . How I miss the ocean, and I am from the ocean State Rhode Island. LOL

Hi, yes that would be brilliant, thank you! I would try very hard not to bore you all rigid, and keep my Picts to myself, lol!
The next time you're all in Scotland I'll definitely drop by for some tea

That was an unfortunate accident!
I was merely practicing my booty-dance (from Tsu's video that doesn't actually exist - ahem!) and your window just happened to get in the way... a bit...


PS - Sooooo glad that you'd finished your Salmon & Eggs by then!!! Could you imagine trying to clean THAT off the inside of the glass??? LOL

Tsu, may I ask you a question please?
Why a white surrender flag?
Why your location the sea floor?
Why mood HMS Hood?

I can only read the three in combination meaning that you are saying HMS Hood surrendered to the Bismark in Scapa Flow and and went to Davy Jones Locker in shame.

HMS Hood

Would you mind explaining please? Confused

Well all too soon Sunday came around


It was like a scene from world war z in the flat 4 zombies and one of our number was missing!!

Fluffy needed to do his morning ablutions so I took him out for a walk. "Be careful Fluffy" I said " I'm in no fit state for heroics.

I'd spoken to soon, no quicker than I looked away to save Fluffy's blushes I heard a panicked bleating. I spun on mt heel only to see Fluffy in the jaws of the crocodile !!!!

*WARNING Graphic images*




I had to think quickly...... I grabbed Fluffy from the jaws of death at great personal risk, but we couldn't leave a man or even a sheep behind.

We swam around the crocodile with Fluffy in a life ring. Irerplaced the ring but Fluffy refused to budge in an almost catatonic state


It was time to leave


I wrestled Fluffy from the ring and we set on our way home


We said our good bye's to Jane and headed to the airport. We thanked Gordi heartily and headed on in.

Fluffy seemed particularly excited about something muttering about travelling the world.


So we had our last meal and a final toast to you all,

we said a very sad goodbye to Tsu and Fluffy and made our weary way home.

Exhausted, but with a memory of new friends met and a weekend to remember for the rest of our lives


Gordi, Jane and Tsu

Our heartfelt thanks for such an amazing weekend, I can honestly say that we can only remember 1 other weekend that was as much fun and that was my visit with Rod may it be the first of many.

Chrissie and the boys

Our heartfelt thanks to you as well, firstly for allowing the Gathering to actually happen.
And secondly for new friendships made.
Your Husband and dad is one of the most amazing people it has been my pleasure to meet, and thank you for giving him up for the weekend.

We hope to meet you all as a family in the future

Cody and Mrs C
