    I see unicorns all the time on my way home from the pub (although sometimes the line of view is blocked by a brontosaurus !!)

    That propeller thing though, ... now that is weird. :eek:

    Honestly, can’t look at animal inflatables the same way after the Dolly the Sheep at the Nativity episode some time ago

    I do remember seeing an inflatable sheep once with a jar of Colmans mustard in its 'orifice'.

    Whatever he's drinking, I want one. Far more importantly though, I want exclusive marketing rights to sell it all over the world ... (and looking at the world today, is it ever needed.) :teef:

    It was a biker weekend in Abersoch.
    As you know these things happen.

    Any four year old should be able to cope with "The Age of Reason", it becomes difficult as you get older.

    Abersoch seems to ring a bell with me, but can't remember actually going there. Racking my brains now ....

    Cracking place, has its own microclimate for much of the year.
    Weather usually much better than expected for Wales.

    North Wales, and Snowdonia in particular is my old stamping ground. I always thought how lucky we were in the West Midlands to have such a vast mountainous landscape just 2 or 3 hours drive away. My old man used to choose various routes to get there (when we got there, stop at pub, then pitch tent, not really the best order of business but there you go) from the classic Shrewsbury A5 route to a more convoluted expedition that took in Eccleshall, Market Drayton, Overton to join the A5 at Llangollen. I did that route a couple of years ago and I have to say it was a pleasant countryside drive which also allowed me to take a look at Ternhill where I started work straight from school billions of years ago.

    I think Wales has got it all .... :)

    I use the A41 for the Holyhead runs and am always amused by this sign at Tern Hill.

    Anybody in between can just take their chances?

    When I was there it was a helicopter training school !! Noisiest bloody things in the world when you're up alongside them. :o

    The Welsh border juts out when you go that way, and you start seeing ARAF written on the road surprisingly quickly !! From the centre of Stafford to the Welsh border in that direction is less than 30 miles as the fly crows. :eek:

    I used to use that route occasionally to go to my caravan at Llangynog (near Bala) but couldn't remember where the border actually was.

    Google maps kindly showed me this image.

    What an unfortunate time to take a loo break :)
