OH and I are going to the Isle of Wight on Sunday to have lunch at the Garlic Farm by way of a little celebration.

The last time I went there I took Wend and the last time he went he locked himself in the back of that van,

It will bring back memories Sharron, you of Wend and him of the inside of the van.
enjoy your trip.

I went to the IOW once on a 'Genes' thing.
A table had been booked for lunch - then, once we'd eaten, they tried to move us - for the next lot.
Unfortunately,their organisation and greed left a lot to be required.
There was nowhere for people to sit and drink (this was a pub), so we refused to move, as we fancied some after lunch booze.
Was that the time you went, Sharron?

No, the only meet I have been to was in a pub by the dockyard gate.

I took Wend over as a surprise for Uzzi when she was clearing out her mother's bungalow and, Wend being Wend, she drank too much so U had to take her all the way back to Brighton
