American loose on the canal is NOT causing any problems.

We set off from Cassio bridge this morning and have reached Apsley. All i can say is that Jaq is a born boater, give her the tiller and within 5 mins her steering is spot on and entering/exiting locks needs the minimum of  reminders after  my showing her how it`s done at an earlier lock.
The Jet Lag  has kicked in but a daily pm nap is slowly eroding the tiredness.

 Now on day 3 of my non smoking and it`s hard and a big effort to resist the call of nicotine is  being helped by Jaq`s presence.

OK off to the shower now as being collected by friends for dinner.

How wonderful to see Jaqueline enjoying the canals with you! A dream come true!

All the best to both of you for your new life together!

What a great smile Jaq.
Enjoy this brief visit for a taste of the rest of your lives together, and have a great wedding back state side. A heart-warming story indeed.

And Les, if the fags are giving you grief ... go to the doc and ask him for "champix".... you will stop !!

Hi Jaqueline, and a big, big welcome.

Rule 1 = don't fall in.
Rule 2 = don't lose the windy
Rule 3 = relax as much as you can, open a bottle at every corner and enjoy yourself, you are home now.

PS. Look over your shoulder, we're not far behind (Cassio bridge lock)

Hi Les, Carrots help with not smoking. I`m not sure why but they helped me back in 2002. Best to both of you.

Hope you showing Jaq the 'proper' way of entering a lock, and not the 'Les' way - I remember the squashed buttons and squashed bike!!!! Easier with two though!!!!!!!!!!! See you soon.

Jaqueline ... so fabulous to see you confident and smiling at the helm! Alone too! It's even better than your dream Jaq. Can't wait to celebrate and play at your wedding. Eh gads...what a story... better than a romance novel because it's real! And Les ... chew those carrots, toothpicks, gum ... what ever it takes. She's worth it and you are too.
