  15. Thank-you all for the lovely comments yesterday I really appreciate them. Sami I'm humbled by your reply. Subs, Ronnie was backshift but he's off today so went to the club last night for a few hours... Karen, one reason why I posted that yesterday to give others mostly newbies Hope although I knew it was coming it still seems surreal.. Just reply to a few was at the club last night Ladies night in the Hall we were in the lounge which I thought might be quieter wrong! but hey-ho it was Ronnie's celebration too. Got a lovely buquet of flowers & chocolates from him, and in the Raffle he won a bottle of Rose from Valencia where we visit on holiday last year in Spain..
