Hi all Another busy weekend has just passed. And I was fortunate enough to go to Wimbledon on Friday, and watch some matches on Centre Court! Woohoo! I almost didn't get in as I had forgotten I had a multi tool in my bag and at the bag search when you first enter I was told I would need to be escorted to 'Car Park 8' (sounds like a code name for an interrogation room!). Fortunately they agreed to just dispose of the item. Then I left my bag under my seat on Centre Court and almost caused a bomb scare and evacuation! And then I managed to upset one of the dignitaries form the US Tennis association, so all in all an eventful day (and I got to see some great tennis) Picture is of centre court before the play got under way.

WOW - this needed no impromptu? I am amazed, however did you have to scare the whole of LONDON with your shenanigans? You can be glad you got off so lightly mister - We have been loving the tennis, the football in Europe and now the cycling in France and when thats all done Olympics waiting for us.

Hi Lany :) I am blessed, my sister in law is in the army and was selected to be a steward for Wimbledon on centre court (Wimbledon use the armed forces to provide their stewards) so she was able to get us tickets. Hehe, I'm loving the sport this summer (winter for you).
