I have to admit you lot were fairly easy to spot when I got there the first time! - just looked like chicken people!

It is a little too far for me - googled it the other day - and with hindsight, should have popped along to the last one in the Cotswolds!

The drivers side front wheel on my car is flat as a pancake, seemingly the valve is broken and the seal on the tyre. I may also have damaged the wheel itself just in getting home last night, so I have no transport!

Hope everyone has a lovely time tomorrow :-D

Lovely to meet up with Karen, Sandy and Bob yesterday. Thank you all for a lovely afternoon and for all the wonderful presents.

My dog thought the huge knitted chicken was very odd, Bob, and gave it an intensive sniff and a gentle nibble. Wiggy was still up when I got home and so I rushed in with the Garvos, Karen, and she thought it was fantastic! What a lucky hen she is. I'm gearing up to get her to write in the Henpals log book, Sandy {rofwl} - that was your award-winning photo, wasn't it?

Bob, I do hope some more cakes got eaten after I had gone, because there were so many. You are too kind and really spoiled us - also with all the chickening bits and the bananas! I shall try them out on Wigs today.

Thank you all - you are so lovely and generous and it was such a pleasure to meet you. {hug&kiss}

(Sorry about Wisley! Can't believe I didn't notice it was the Flower Show and we all had to park miles away, and then the coffee shop wasn't much to write home about. )sh)

Still had a good time though, even with the hordes of oap bus trippers camping out and arguing on the next table (HP there was a MASSIVE domestic not long after you left). Drama. Not to mention the incessant fussing from the little old lady next to her who Sandy nearly lamped. Very short fuse, that there Sandy {rofwl}

Bet you can hear the scouse in my writing now eh?? :-D

Bob took the cakes home and I hope he got to eat them, as last time the chickens had all his apple pie when he dropped it on the floor. Bob, I think I'll make you an apple pie next time. By the way Bob, pm me your address as I'm going to send you something you desperately need for your new zealand trip.

For info here's a link on the health benefits of dried marigolds for chickens: http://www.fresheggsdaily.com/2013/09/m ... s-and.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Glad Wiggy liked the garvos - I thought she might )eat( And yes I think the pic was Psycho Olive.

See, now I just want to hear about that domestic!
And I want to know why the little old lady was fussing.

It did make me chuckle when you called me HP yesterday )like(

HP sorry Penny :oops:
1st old lady "you have been vile towards me today'
2nd old lady …silence
1st old lady ' I don't know what your problem is you havent spoken to me'
and so on with 2nd old lady ignoring her…
3rd and 4th old lady sat by them, one of them asked what was the matter, other one said stay out of it!
Always amazes me it dosent matter how mature in ages some people are they can carry on like children who dont know better >dum<
Karen , I did lamp the old lady in my mind, I love old ladies but not particular on them when they all queue at the loos before they get back on their coaches and I want to go!
HP it didnt matter we clashed with the flower show still a lovely day. Those cakes

I was lucky to escape a 'glamour' shot but this is what I wore

I was surprised Bob,Karen and I were not investigated by the wisley security, we were in the field in the pouring rain well Bob off loaded strange looking plants, fruits and worms and white powder from his van to our cars {rofwl}
Lovely , lovely day and did you realise Bob and Karen it was exactly a year from our furst meet up?

Was it really a year? I had no idea!

I'd forgotten about the dodgy dealings in the distant car park :-D good job they didn't spot the white powder!

The little old lady decided to fuss around with the chairs, moving them right behind Sandy and practically blocking her in. It's an odd sight, people in soaking rain macs eating ice cream cones while practically sitting on our knees {rofwl}

Yup, I thought the same thing as I drove home with a poo bag full of DE!! I can explain officer...

I'm sorry I missed all the drama {rofwl} it sounds like it all kicked off after I left.

I would say there's some odd folk around, but as we were sitting there with two huge knitted chooks and a singing hen, and us all talking non-stop about our chickens, with three of us armed with our chicken bags and Sandy in her brilliant Henpals T-shirt... well, I'm not sure we are in a position to judge. I wonder what they were saying about us {rofwl} {rofwl}
