Reports from Annangrove show that the crowd visiting Bob yesterday was bigger than was expected...
I'm told that just over a hundred arrived and there was a lot of catching-up chatter among people who rarely get to see each other. Someone also took their car along to join with the others Bob has built.
Bob finished the day delighted to have had everyone there, though he felt he'd like to have had more one-on-one time with each of them.
Among the crowd were some we know here, I've seen a photo of Bob with Brian Lear.
A barbecue cooked plenty of sausages. When the snags arrived, Bob looked at the quantity and said, "What are you going to do with all of those, you won't need that many, surely?" But need they did, just two sausages left at the end of the day, while they ran out of bread rolls and one of the sons-in-law had to go up to the local shop to buy more.
Bob's daughters and their respective spouses took along cakes and it seems everyone was well-satisfied.
This morning Bob said he felt very good about the whole thing, but his thanks went to Kerry Smith and the others who did the work and organised things so Bob just had to prepare the cars.
I'm hoping someone will turn up with photos...
