What a hoot of a weekend.  The thongs were very good eh Richard, not to mention the singing by young Charles and the old Crooner himself!!  Even the little black number was entertaining - certainly kept the guys awake anyway!  Many thanks to you all for great company, great food - on diet from tomorrow.
