Well done on 100 - but much moreso good luck to your (must be very understanding, strong and patient) wife.

Jings,I am so very humble with all the heartfelt replys from all of you,I was going to post a seperate reply to every one of you,but that would take forever and also over inflate the amount of 1 views & 2 posts & thats not what I post for.
So once again from me & Elizabeth many,many thanks...............................and yes, to all who asked Elizabeth is in a good place just now.

Thank you Elizabeth & Willie........................glw.

Congratulations Gammy. I always look forward to reading your reports - the humour, the drama and sometimes a few wise words too. Looking forward to reading 100 more. My best wishes and prayers to Mrs GLW too :)

That was a great report and very moving.

The pictures of the horns are superb. I thought we had a clear (ish) day when we did it but your views were quite exceptional. Well done on your 100. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Well done Willie and AlanS. Just goes to show that we read these reports day in and day out and never realise all the things that go on in the background, the trials and tribulations of daily life that we all have to cope with. Sometimes that's what this walking lark is all about, getting the time, the peace, the perspective to deal with all that life throws at us and get through it. And by the sounds of things that's what you and your wife have done.

Not often a report moves me Willie but yours did. Great achievement for you personally and glad to hear your wife is in a good place just now. You're a very lucky man.

PS. Very, very jealous, those pics are brilliant! :D

Excellent stuff my friend. Glad both of you have FINALLY reached the century mark :lol: Certainly wish I could have been a part of this adventure.

As always, I'm thinking about you and the Mrs and I wish both of you the best. I'm also thankful that she was nice enough to let you come out and walk with me when you clearly could have been doing more household chores!

Congratulations on reaching 100 :clap: :clap: :clap:

The clag lifting for those truly stunning scenes was a surely a well earned reward for all your trials and tribulations that you and your dear wife have endured over the past few years.

Well deserved. :D
