I would like to add my thanks to my servers, Tiger, Merowyn and Sigfus. 
This was Tiger's last event before heading off to the Air Force next month 
and it was certainly a pleasure to see him; Merowyn has always jumped in 
wherever she can help so thank you again; Sigfus has helped with the 
Longship breakfast before, but I thought he should see how it is done in 
more civilized company.  Well done, Sigfus, and thank you again, there just 
may be hope for you yet.

Cheers (and thanks),
HL Caitlin, Carolyn, Lyn, Mom, Grandma
So much to do and so little attention span to get it done with.

> Sir Godwin and Don Robert...Genevieve and I can hardly find the words to

> or
> a piece of advice.
> We couldn't do it without you....and that is the simple truth. Thank you
