Wait 'til you get mine! :lol:
I started to write a few notes, the keyboard got away from me and all of a sudden escaped seals seemed easy. I am now up to 20 pages, need to edit it, find the photos and videos (which are currently stored in NZ whilst I am in North East China (don't ask but the beer sucks...)
But Terry (Man we are BOTH still breathing!) reminded me of a few more...
Be VERY patient...

Actually I wondered if this was the right column to be answering the comment about forthcoming events but I just pressed the 'post reply' button! :?
but Mmmmmmmmmmm! Never much liked talking about me. However as I mentioned above I am at 20 pages and counting, not sure where you could put that length here...let me know. :lol:

Now back to the mud and sweat here...

Sounds a bit like elephant time at Windsor! (But without the beer)

Hello Tez.

If you read this then you will remember me. I am afraid it did not all end well with us :cry: Who said life was easy :twisted: It was what it was and it played a part in my life. It was a hard winter, loosing Snappy loosing the whale to Hong Kong and working under pressure to deliver.This is life :arrow:

Hello Chris.

I cannot place you but I was around during the time you were there. Who is the person in photo #8 holding the cub? Did he live on the park at the back around the old converted horse stables?

Al the best.

Hi Chris, well you soooooooo remember meee!!!!!!!!! Its Amy you were best friends with my Brother funaly enough called Kris. you had the beatles on your left and the richards on your right. I lived in the first bungalow we had the bigest one because we had the big family. We would call our little area ''the circle". Do you know what happend to that lad called Terry he was a little mental, then there was Jonny a large kid, or What about Chris Low? :roll: Man wish I knew what they were all up to. What about hamed do you remeber him he was funny, he lived just off the top car park next to the indoor play area i think. You liked crisps and coloa and you were always on your computer. I remeber that masive white dog, and that little pug dog, think that was your nans. We would run all over the park triing to catch that big white mountain dog, people thought a pola bear had got out :shock: , not that there was any in the park, but hay.

Hi Chris! Well wow never thought i'd ever get the oppertunity to speak to you again. Hope you remember me it's Vicky. I lived in the park for a couple of years till i was about twelve, my little sister was called Emma & my Mum & Dad are George & Cindy. we lived in the big old looking house, we had an Alsatian dog called Atlas. I remember your big dog that used to run away all the time, i think his name was thorn or something similar. We had such great times in that place, they are probably some of the happiest years of my life. We were all like a big extended family. Our dens where ace especially that one we built right at the side of your house. I've since met up with Gary & Amy Walton. the last time i saw Gary was about six years ago & Amy last year. i am on my mum's computer at the moment but here is my E mail address; would really love to here from you,
Take care
Vicky xx

Hi Chris

I knew you Dad and Mum; I worked at the Park in 77 - 79. What I remember most is that they had a mastiff dog called Suli with a hare lip - she was so beautiful and soft.
I used to work in the bottom office and my name then was Janet Doughty, my brother Eric had a part time job and your parents would have known my mum Betty as they used to go in the paper shop off Clewer Hill Road called Courtneys - do you remember it?

I now live in Slough and married one of the security guards from the park
