Post by Gary » Mon Jul 31, 2017 8:44 am

If he knows where, but cannot say. But CAN reply to tell people their guess is wrong, surely all we need to do is play 20 questions to get the answer?

Then we'll all know, rather than noone knowing.

Not sure they'd want to go Cyprus if they spend 3 a bit months there every 7+ months :lol: I will added the bolthole is not meant to be in the UK. Guessing it's likely last overseas bolthole for the TGRF.. :'(

You certainly did NOT annoy me. I guessed your circumstances so thanks again for the input. (My reference to the dreaded Leeming was a bit of dry humour anyway)

Is that based on rumour, guesswork or just wishful thinking?

31 are currently on op shader, so when they get back I guess a period of well earned rest.
