We are the famous five ...... ( volunteers)

We are the famous five ...... ( volunteers)

Think Enid Blyton .. Think 1970s when TV immortalised the Famous Five and join in with the unforgettable theme song...

We are the Famous Five.. Tulips , Gins and San Moffy and VG the dogfish .... La la

And yes that is the Volunteer hut I am sitting in ... Due to cutbacks FA. Have taken the old volunteer hut for themselves and we have to share this....

So hopefully now there will be at least one volunteer about for a wider range of time...

So here we are Tulips123.... Gins...... Sandra99b ....Ladymoth and myself...

Have you turned into a dawg, VG - or are you swimming about in that blue, china bowl? :D

What a come-down - we'll have to save hard for a new Volunteer Hut :(

Being a dog is the least of our worries.... Tulips and gins seem to have changed sex... Still those short hair styles will be easy to look after I just don't know how I am going to cope with all that fur......

Yours panting

I've gone off on my bike with lashings of ginger beer, to look for a new Volunteer Hut.

I've started my quest in the stockbroker belt around Richmond. Some of their garden sheds look very palatial, and would suit us nicely.

If we disguised ourselves as gnomes, gno-one would know we were there! :D

then I ask someone where the rest of the famous five has got to.

He laughed heartily and told me I'd got mixed up with Swallows and Amazons! :D
