Stephan, formerly known as The Staff, has been on this property for thirty-three years! Since 7/7/77. How time flies. I was a mere child at the time. [}:)] :D

I've been on this one since 1/7/88 and you are right - how time flies! Cough - I wasn't a mere child though and even less so today but I love my place with a passion and a hate all rolled into one! Had been thinking of selling and just today I decided not too as I can't for the life of me see what I can replace it with. Town? - shudder!

Wow that is a long time. Well done :)

This place we have here is the longest I have ever lived in one spot in 57 years. We've been here for 10 years and love it.

A bit off topic but I remember the date 7/7/77 for a totally different reason - I was partying up at Pamplona at the Running of the Bulls on that date. That date has always stuck in my mind.

I really was a child on 7/7/77, visiting my English relatives, running around waving flags at the Queen for her 25th anniversary of coronation.

Stephan just feels old. [}:)]

[}:)] So could it be Isla, that Stephan was born there, is only 33 now, and you are older than he?[}:)][}:)] Toy boy seems a better name than staff![}:)] LOL

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

No, he's OLD. He was leaving school just as I was starting. When I was a teenager, he was just some old guy who lived up the road. I met him properly when I was a young adult and really liked his farm. [}:)]

That would be right. :D :D [8D] I'm kind enough to let him hang around to cook my dinners, cut gorse, castrate calves and stand behind 700kg cows to push them into the headbail. Fortunately I can also keep him believing he's the luckiest guy on the planet.[;)]
