Well, I was a tad older at the time, but still wasn't there. And with a little luck, here's a picture of the book.

I'm not going to outbid you, because that's cheating and I know you.

Did you know that they served crap dinners at your pub? The beef was definitely not fresh, and the Yorkshires were Aunt Bessies as were the spuds.

**** it, £60.

Aunt Bessies indeed........................

All, I find I'm going to be stuck on Tuesday at 1900 in a place where I'll have no internet access. So I'm going extend this to Wednesday evening at 1900.

Sorry for any inconvenience, but I think that's probably better than bringing the end of the auction forward.

And it's still with Princess Dale at sixty beer tokens.
