Hi Dilwyn,

Cheers,

Looks lovely. May lead to reduced QL productivity in the Dunbar household from the 20th... :twisted:


I suspect you may be right there Dilwyn. We get him home at 9 weeks, so I suspect carnage will reign.

Cheers,

Re: Happy Birthday!

Thanks Dilwyn. There have been some weirdness on the forum recently as chr$ found out and reported. It looks like it's not completely fixed. ;(

The afore mentioned present arriving on the 20th is:
