I would like to say a big thank you to Wayne and his lovely wife Sarah for making me so welcome when I 'popped' in for a too quick a chat a few weeks ago. After my first brief visit Sarah very kindly let hubby know I had come calling and after travelling to and returning from Turkey I had a very small window of opportunity to visit once more. On 'phoning Wayne he generously dropped what he was doing at met me at his pub. I thoroughly enjoyed the eighty minutes spent in the ex-champs company and I just wished I had had more time as I left without asking a few pertinent questions such as 'who did you enjoy wrestling and conversly who didn't you enjoy wrestling'. Well, maybe next time I'm over from Down Under. Wayne, Paula, thank you once more!!

Cheers, John.
