Stop, Collaborate and Listen...

So the FleetLoc Beer and Pizza evening was a sham, and many apologies to the people who signed up for it believing it to be real.

In honour of Colin's birthday Rosemary organised a surprise. Be at Colin's castle at 5.30pm sharp she said (Beak ignored this, of course) for a surprise event. We were bang on time, and credit where it's due Colin gave a very good attempt at pretending to be glad to see us.

We piled into the mini-bus, the driver of which had been sworn to secrecy, and we ended up going over to Tongham where Rosemary demonstrated that yes, a FleetLocer really can organise a piss-up in a brewery. The Hogs Back Brewery to be precise.

The tour took in the various stages of the brewing process, but all that really mattered was that we drank ale by the jug load and were horribly, uproariously drunk by the time we made it to Col's favourite Chinese restaurant.

After eating two plate loads of crispy duck, spilling red wine over Rosemary's dress, annoying all the other diners with our behaviour and Lyndsey having her picture taken with every available male we retired back to Colin's castle and listened to his Rap records. Oh, and he gave us an up close inspection of Glois.

Word to your mother.
