    Great fotos girls. Yes, its been quite a week for all of us romancers. I was just about dead on Saturday morning. I won’t mention the parking ticket we got at the Festival of Romance as it might take the bloom off the occasion. BTW – was the room really THAT PINK ????

    Bet that river level rose when you lot got there (even I have no idea what I mean by that – a bit like the old cordwainer conspiracy…) ‘Nuff said.
