I have the books, hard & paperback though some of my paperbacks are looking a little foxed as I've had them for 15+ years and they've been passed around & read many, many times. I have one stamp, calendars and the pewter Death & Granny figurines. I also have the UU cutout book that I'm not game to cut out.

That UU looks amazing. And Johnson's organ! What are those brown & gold hardbacks Dug?

Although the big question is, Was the beer any good?


What are those brown & gold hardbacks : they are Unseen Universtiy ones SisJ which the F&SF BOOKCLUB issued for a while there were 18 of them in all ,the beer was quite good but these ones are unopened it was launched at the 2006 Hogwatch in Wincanton.

Yep. Me too. I think I am waiting til I am retired and old and kids are out of the house before I start it though.... but since they are planning to put the retirement age up again this time to around 70 I suspect by then I wont be allowed sharp objects. :( Doubt they will let me have GLUE ! :roll:

Catch-up... you and me babe... we shall have to book into the same nursing home when we get on in years..... do it together.

The kids can use the sharp things and cut out the shapes for us on visiting days while we sit back and eat our grapes. If we are lucky they might bring us choccies (soft centers of course... those hard centres tend to stick your false teeth together and we dont want to choke half to death and scare them off.... wont have anyone to do the cutting out if that happens)
