Lions Tour 2017


Good morning. A chum at the rugby club has come up with a welcome diversion. He’s suggested a number of us sign up for the Lion’s Tour to NZ in 2017. His cunning plan involves a modest monthly remittance to a central account, which ought not to be too onerous and with the bonus of having started three years in advance the womenfolk ought by the time of departure be completely at ease and desensitised to the idea of their men folk disappearing to the other side of the globe for two to three weeks. I’m in, although looking forward I can picture the scene of standing by the front door on the day of departure with bag packed only to hear Mrs Flashbang call out, “and where do you think you’re going?”
