Bloody lucky to get this close, I have heared they release the hounds at 50 yards, the farmer on his quadbike rode past us en route and did give us that sideways glance that said " FUPP OFF" townies

We need eggs and things, I would have shat my pants if someone had answered the door :roll:

Not the attitude I'd been given to expect from the H.E. Bates novel I'd read...

There are only 3 valid reasons why anybody should be lurking around Tailbert

1. You are lost, and blame the sat nav, exclaiming, I knew it was a mistake having Eric Cantona as the prompting voice.

2. You are an escaped mental looking for a disused barn to hide in.

3. You want to knock at a strangers door and shout " we need eggs and things "

The thing that I have noticed is, the first two reasons sound at least more socially acceptable than the third. :?

Good shots, indeed. Never been there myself.
The only program I'm likely to get on is the fucking news.

There's this local type hanging about. Got into a bit of a tiff and she threatened me with a bunch of dead squirrels' tails.
It was rather amusing actually. When you came into the house we thought you were her and that you cleaning your boots was her filing her nails

I normally am, apart from the odd splash of pink.

I look fucking tired and haggard in that photo too, on account of having to get up in practically the middle of the night. Hence the dozy expression. :|

You look lovely :)
They found him wandering round Regent's Park with a cheap bottle of sherry...

And like a fool I mixed them and it strangled up my mind, and now people just get uglier and I have no sense of time...

Thanks Withwine.

Erm... there's loads more photos, none from the hall though, as we didn't even go there on that particular trip. Went to the phonebox though, and the bull gate.

I'll post some more when I can be arsed going through them, that's if oomska doesn't first.
