From those photos

Posted from 84.65.137.16

It's rather obvious that there's not much of interest on the A272...I suppose love works in strange ways?

Richard - are you going/able to take me to Crawley v Accrington Stanley on Saturday? And are you interested in a £35 return flight to Brno and associated possible major concentration camp activities, 7th-14th June? And are you interesting, as I just mis-typed?

What about the ducks

Posted from 84.68.188.52

that decided
other things they'd do?

well..

Posted from 81.86.87.69

the ducks that flew
in number, were few

And surprisingly

Posted from 81.77.83.140

I came back as exhausted as after the last epic journey to that part of the world.

Where are the pictures,
Of the ducks that flew?

An(other) Ode to the A272

Posted from 81.77.30.18

Will go ahead on Saturday, I have ordered a laminated piece of card on which we can write and erase our verses as we go!

He doesn't REALLY care does he?

Ed says: "I do still have Tony, and I have his next stop lined up already. I am so sorry for being rubbish on getting pictures online. I have them, but I've
been feeling lazy and haven't uploaded them... will get onto it in the
next few days."

Matthew

Posted from 61.247.247.206

I have emailed Ed to find out

Not wanting to sound like a nagging mother

Posted from 81.77.153.98

But where's my little Tony?

your answer

Posted from 81.86.89.174

will be on a postcard leaving soon

Actually

Posted from 81.77.70.133

You should write a letter to the Times of India defending your position. Do they have a letters page?

I always wonder

Posted from 81.77.70.133

How do you find out about these articles? And about this site being top on google for varoius things?

a british gentleman?

Posted from 81.86.88.240

let me say that whether or not fox hunting stays banned will not affect me. I thought it was important to let everyone know

erm...

Posted from 81.86.88.240

To be honest, I don't think it's going to affect me at all. I don't some, I don't drink much, I'm not a pensioner and I don't have a young family. Inheritance tax planning is all in place and I have no intention of moving home. So, for me, a non-event. It most certainly will not influence my vote at the coming election.

"SUN readers reacted with fury yesterday at John Prescott giving the green light to illegal gipsy camps.

From Newquay to Newcastle and from Carlisle to Crawley..."

predictable!

In my defence

Posted from 84.66.78.39

I wrote a message when I got home from work, as I tend to do. Then, to my utter amazement, I found that we were only one away from 3000. How could I possibly not comment on such a momentous event?

Matthew

Matthew

Posted from 61.247.246.20

I mean, from 2998, 3000 is but a speck in the distance.




Clearly.

And let me apologise now

Posted from 84.66.90.185

For sending matthew a text at midnight/some bizarre time in Chennai last night. Hopefully it didn't wake him up, we shall see from his demeanour when he returns.

When the random message is

Posted from 84.66.90.185

matthews tomorrow night for food board games and general low level merriment

it makes me sad that I will get no low level merriment tomorrow night. Or in fact for several months/years.
