    Nice picture Susan, even managed to get the photographer in shot in reflection in other half's sunglasses!
    Know what you mean about noses - I have inherited mine from Dad's side - but I can't see much wrong with yours. Character makes a face, doesn't spoil it.

    That's not nose, that's character. Think of the Duke of Wellington.

    I could fancy myself winning Waterloo..however being called Beaky (WHY am I sharing this I ask myself) at school made sure my ego never got out of hand!:)

    Funny how similar circumstances influence us with unsimilar results. The shape of MY nose made me acquire some good fighting skills at school..

    Look, the weather was adverse in the British sense of the word. A bit rain, and visibility decreasing along with wind increasing up the hill. Now you can't miss PYF in August even if you try to, but the point was that we descended the hill on the east side and spent the night under canvas by the northern reservoir. (Please don't tell the National Trust.) For that leg, map and compass was appropriate equipment. You can probably see my compass as well as my knife dangling from my belt, in the pic.

    No, that was a bit optimistic. In this one, though, you can see knife and compass overlapping by my right hip:


    So, your point is B)?

    And the shape of mine made me a comedienne... or a bit of a joke(r) whichever you wish to look at it.

    I'm sorry, Drew, for once you're wrong:
    If you look closely at the pic in my last post you can see the green plastic mug hanging at my left hip, clipped on with a carbine.

    The kit was indeed in shit order - I'm impressed you can spot in this pic that I'm soaking wet, wearing worn-out windbreaker bottoms ! :blush:

    There is a T-shirt advertised in the old motorcycle magazines rather parodying the ownership of old British bikes. Henk on the WM20 forum (who I had previously thought of as a friend) has photoshopped a picture of someone pushing an old clunker into the campsite at Ouistreham and used it as a title page.

    I'd only lost a clutch lever screw, and now it's plastered all over the internet.:unsure:

    No, no, you've got it all wrong. The headlamp is so bright that I had to fit a blackout mask to it !

    The blame for the push lies with me going out with loose nuts (No, Susan, that's not painful either, and I always have some spares in my pockets !:) )

    This may not appeal to everyone but here is a photo created by my brother, the demented police officer.
    He sent the photo to my oldest son on his 27th birthday.
    Clearly, the intent, using a picture taken when he was a boy, was to cast some doubt on his lineage. I believe he captioned it as "Spawn of the Devil".

    Made me laugh!
