fine place indeed and they will be given a right royal reception when they arrive. By the way Fred you mentioned Dunc and Mrs. S. were going great guns, well hair on them as that is one thing we do not get much of out here are the authorities are very strict about the women but where there is a will there is a way and leave it to me to find that way.
