  1. Thank you Philippa. A good quiz.
    How did I get on ? 6 correct answers

    Last week, my beloved Amicus, a Golden Retriever, had to be put to sleep in Vilnius. We had him from 7 weeks and he reached the old age of over 12 years. He will be greatly missed.

  2. Smiles. You can always be relied on to get involved here! You’re probably the only person in the whole world to do this quiz on here, apart from me. 6 in bloody good, better than I did.

    I’m really sorry to hear about your dog. We share that grief within a month and I’m sure you will miss your’s as much as we miss ours. I buried his ashes in the garden, next to our other pets only the other day. Sad lot us animal lovers.

    All the best to you.

  3. Thanks Philippa
    I understand that Glynsky is descending on Vienna this weekend. Let us wait to see if he phones me.

  4. I’m afraid I failed miserably, maybe it was too much coffee or the lack of alcohol.

    Glynsky should phone you to buy you a beer for the success of Spurs over Arsenal

  5. Glynsky was here but unfortunately I have had a strong virus and could not go to meet him. I am sure that the Gentleman would have bought me a beer.
