    More like "found in action" than missing, eh?

    po you’ll have to wait as I say hi to my buddy first.
    With love back in abundance.

    po, What has to be done will be done.
    ive never given up, well nearly yet not quite so as our Dubai family were the last in the place a week ago now I fully expect it to look like a bomb has gone off.
    I may be wrong but I doubt I am.
    Our so to speak next door friends Cille and Giles I’ll call later after he finishes his docs duties and let them know we are on our way.

    Being easier for me we will fly into Chambery rather than Geneva as from Chambery it’s a easy straight autoroute to Bourg St Maurice. Through the town a sharp right and 15 Kms then a left and up the mountain.
    We should be there about 1300 hrs on 15th, can’t wait.

    Good to read you are off sliding and getting some mountain air, sure it will do you both good, I am sure you won't behave and may drift from the blue to red, skiing is so much easier than walking.
    Can always lend you a zimmer if it would help (ducks and runs) could set up a snow plough and put a pair of mini's on

    John

    Well, since I was discharged they can chase a dogs tail as
    Good news
    To hell with the consequences we are off to our French hut on the 15th and to hell with scans and The 90 day Egyptian prat As I’ve told them the 25th isn’t convenient.
    So folks, my GP in answer to my question is there any medical reason that would stop me going skiing. Answer Insurance.
    Thats sorted so no problems then.
    It will do Annie good to get away as she’s having a rough time at present waiting for more scan and blood results.
    So, as I now can walk albeit it at a slower pace approx 500 yards I consider myself capable.
    Wont be doing the blacks or reds so sticking to the blues and greens and if I fall so what.
    So missing in action for 2 weeks from 15th.
    Baz
    Excellent. I am sure skiing is the best medicine. Have a great time.

    Thanks one and all, indeed I am sure we shall all enjoy whether it’s snow or shine.
    John, I think I’ll pass on the Zimmer if you don’t mind as it sounds far to complicated fitting a pair of blades for my puny brain.
    Zim,
    thanks buddy, methinks dropping a length from my loved and well used K2’s may be called for. I can always use DIL’s 163 cm after I adjust the bindings for my footbed length IF they will extend that far.
    Otherwise it’s pop into Intersport and ask them to fit me up.

    Good news, after speaking to Giles, Cille popped next door to check over the place and messaged Anne to say all was clean and tidy, remarkable !, although as I guessed the wine and spirit stock is practically non existent although the freezer is well stocked.

    No worries Giles is doing a top up from his vast stock and believe me he does have a huge stock.
    Food and essentials will be in the fridge courtesy of Cille nipping down to Bourg for us and dinner at their place Friday evening. All of a 50 walk.

    Saturday Giles and I with our ESF mate Maurice will I’m told nip off and get some easy runs in. I’m guessing the other two will be riding shotgun on a Just in case basis knowing Giles, whilst Cille and Annie catch up on events.

    Isnt it wonderful to have true friends even though they are French.
    End of this dissitation.
    Barry
