Looking back it appears I've been at this lark for four years now. I'm the first to admit things have been a bit patchy lately, and at present rate of progress will do well to see out the month, let alone another glorious year, and looking around the "'sphere" I'm beginning to feel a bit nervous. Seems four years in, blogs can start to get a bit time expired and dwindle away to nothing. This simply wont do. I've barely got enough material here for a chapter, let alone a sidesplitting Herriot style memoir or two to see me right in my dotage.
At this rate I'll need to start recycling material rather like a certain teller of Tales of Boy Wizards to see out the time to retirement, only I'm not allowed to go bumping off characters just to revive interest in the franchise now am I?
So if any of you dear, fantastically loyal, vastly talented readers have any amusing GP related anecdotes you're happy for me to shamelessly plagiarize, you know what to do.
Seriously though, four years in, although it's a bit neglected, this old place is still home. I do intend to keep going at whatever rate time, inspiration and real life will allow. After all it's been my safety valve when things get me all hot under the collar, it's introduced me to a fine bunch of people, some nearly as mad as I, and it's done wonders for the old ego, just to know a few of you out there actually want to stop by and read this stuff.
So here's to another fun packed year ahead, and god bless us every one!
