Just back from two weeks in France where I chanced upon this. Plainly, Philly is too embarrassed at the size of this acquisition to gloat about it here - and his missus has probably no inkling of it yet...

Well Done Chris!!!
Nice to have you back-hope you had a great holiday!
See you found my lil forest-was waiting till it was a little more mature before gloating (about another 30 years......... :lol: )
best regards
Monsieur Phili :D

Thanks everyone for the welcome back here - feels good to be back although France was great. I just have to shed some unwanted avoirdupois brought about by over-indulgence and then when I can tie my own shoelaces again I will feel quite back to normal :lol:

Chris, I know what the food can be like over there. This is the type of take-away we over indulged in.

Aaargh. Wow betide anyone who comes anywhere near me with a prawn sandwich now - I'd probably rip their arm off... :shock:

What you can't see from the photo are the oysters, cockles & welks that were underneath all those prawns, shrimps, langoustines & crabs.

For reference ordered from the Continent Supermarket in Courselles, Normandy but you will have to wait 'till next year as they only do them during the summer holidays.

Why would anyone want to eat a plate of bait???

(You may guess from the above that I don't like seafood - I work on the principle that if I wouldn't want to pick it up when it's alive, I don't want to put in in my mouth when it's dead!!!!!!)

Andy,

Your photo makes me want to jump on the next ferry back there!

Meanwhile, this photo makes me realise how far I have to go in woodcarving. This is from the choir stalls in Auch Cathedral
