No, Jacqui, don't leave him behind - just tell HIM to bring all the things HE will need e.g. his tankard, the kettle to make you an early morning drink, the washing-up liquid and HIS rubber gloves to wash up after he's cooked for you and ... the children, plus the dog to accompany HIS walks .....

You just make sure you bring yourself and your lovely voice.

See you there,

Polly

Just for the record, I did not 'forget' to take the tankard, I chose to leave it behind. Just as I chose to leave the kettle, the washing-up liquid, the children......
Might choose to leave the husband behind this year!!!

Well someone has to provide all those things that everyone forgets ~ even if it means going back home for them! Now, last year we had to go home as so many people wanted to see the new [very old] house we had bought so we had to have the state visit!! We always go into Tavy to get flowers for the pub and it's a good excuse to visit the Cheese shop and the amazing amber stall in Tavy market! I have been up the Tor before but there's early and there's EARLY!!!!!

Polly, What was that about "get a spare tankard because Jacqui forgot to pack Brian's." I wish!! I was left to drink out of damp glasses all weekend!

Morty, I do early. Catters do before lunchtime. Jack and Zak were on the way back when I set out. Damn, does that man never sleep?

I could be doing the walk later this year, Jessie takes a while longer to wake up now. I wasn't expecting him to be up to it this year at all, but he still seems to be ready to take on the world, al be it at a slower pace than before.

Cats, shame on you!!! I guess you can claim exemption this year because you've been ill - but i've never seen or heard any evidence of your going up to the top of the tor.

Now, the speciality cheese shop in the local town, or back home to feed the cats, or to the florists to buy flowers for the landlady. or back home to get the forgotten Bendigo, or get a spare tankard because Jacquie forgot to pack Brian's ... etc., etc. Yes, you've done all those. Admitted you don't need an excuse this year to get out of it - but you better have a good excuse next year!

What about the 'dog' show this year? Do Jack and Zak finally get to win the lookalike owner and dog class?

I'm not sure what time catters call early, but I think I was back on the campsite last year before they set out. It was too damn windy up by Widgery Cross to hang around too long.

Cats. On the way back down, I think I met part of your awning going the other way!!!

Seriously. If you're going to do the Tor walk, expect a round trip of about 2.5 - 3 miles and a rise of about 500ft from the ford in the stream (River Lyd) to the cross. It's worth the effort.

cheers

Oh Polly! Poor Jack! He turned his hand pretty well to corn dolly making at the weekend, after a few false starts. In our house, The dog will do anything for Choclate (even though it is a poison) and Kevin isn't allowed it 'cos it's ALL MINE!!!!!!!!!

Count me in for the weekend - but out for anything on top of a Tor first thing in the morning. I'll send my proxies - Jack and Zak instead! Jack will do practically anything for chocolate - Zak musn't have it (being a canine it's poison to him).

Don't on any account - if you value your ears and sensibilities - let Jack sing. Lovely man, can turn his hand to most things - but definitely not a singer or a dancer.

See you there,

Polly

Mudgather? Nay Lass, You'll find nought up there but rocks and sheep sh*t! There is a bog gather part way up, though. Would that do?

It looks like my annual (weather permitting) jaunt to the top, is going to get crowded and noisey this year. At least the noise might drown out the sound of my wheezy old lungs.

see yer there

All booked up & raring to go, my first time but wanted to come along for the past few years!!

Will the Mudgather on the Tor be a goer? I heard a suggestion it'd be before breakfast which is a challenge for me. Can Catters do chocolate before breakfast?

Hope all is well, positive thoughts {{{{Cats}}}}

We'll be there, possibly minus Tamsyn, as she has exams - and may still be getting over the shock of having her gorgeous long locks cut off this afternoon!!!!!!!!! (she still looks Gorgeous though!)
Cheers, Lucy
PS I started a rumour about a mudgather on Sunday mroning on top of the tor, hoping someone will take on the organising bit? Last year it was Snuffy, Selchie & me (and Amber & the other Hawker & a lark - who we serenaded with 'The Lark in The Clear air' if I remember correctly - well it was early in the morning!!!!!!
