Well we left this as late as possible in the event that things may have changed.....  it looks most likely that we will not be able to make it to Salhouse this week end.
 Louise has recently had her Gaul bladder removed and though she has made good progress she is still feeling a little discomfort. Its sad for us as we missed last years due to house moving and were both looking forward to meeting you all.

 Before anyone says come without her its more than my life would be worth and the hamsters would mutiny Laughing . we both send our apologies especially to those who have worked so hard to make it happen.

I believe there may be one or two boats paid their £8 overnight fee that may not get there, Tony is now down to a dinghy after two of his Freeman's have developed faults !
Steve with Chickadee is a maybe at present, hope you make it Steve.
The £8 fee is for overnighting ,  day charges are £1.50 up to an hour, £4 daytime over an hour.  Anybody coming who wants to stay o/n and hasnt paid may be able to take over somone elses paid fee and reinburse them ? Just a thought ! Discuss with Prof or me on the day.  Derek

(Hope that's OK Prof )

Hi Maureen, thanks for the update, I am sure you will be well welcomed to Salhouse by the other forum members.  I hope you have a great day and the weather is kind to you.  Prof Pat will be helming my boat, any forum questions, ask him.  Any technical questions, ask anyone who is there, someone will have the answer.  If no questions, mix and mingle at will, share stories and company of the other Freeman owners.
Move to Houston is going well, thanks for asking, weather is not a problem here (unless100+F and high humidity could be considered a problem).
Have a great day on Saturday.

Removal of the gall bladder although quite a relatively small operation is complicated by its position in the body, so my sympathies are with Louise. A pity that you won't make it but perfectly understandable in the circumstances. A friend of ours had her G b removed and it was a long time before she was 100%, but worth it in the end as the pain was indescribable. Hope it goes well for her.
Edit: the person I was referring to had open surgery, if your wife had keyhole which is more common now the recovery time is much shorter, sorry if my comment was alarmist !

You all have a great weekend at the meet, sorry I couldn't attend, daughter wouldn't be happy if I wasn't at the alter tomorrow to give her away !!

Bit stressed at the moment as it's a double wammy wedding do with part one a garden tea party at our house in the afternoon, never seen so many gazebos in a garden !

Weather is on our side here in the Worcestershire and hopefully will be for you as well sunny

I WILL catch up with you all for a meet one day, just this one and the Thames one were all double booked I'm afraid. Did contemplate coming down Sunday but i'm 180 miles away and by the time I got there you would all be starting to depart for home I would think,


Have fun, and best of luck with return adventure home Deano Very Happy
