  • Cordon, I done work you & Bonnie, just thinking of you telling me stories of your time in the air force. Had a laugh thinking of you watching a game rugby on TV one foot away and I asked you why you are sitting so close, you said "If those buggers get the ball I can grab it and give it back to us".
