if you would like to re-cap. At our age we are all supposed to have a mental or written "bucket list"; a list of things you would like to see or do "before you die". I am not sure why it is called a bucket list but my mental one includes plenty of pricey stuff we are never likely to achieve now that we are no longer DINKYs swimming in cash (African Safari, Mountain gorillas, terracotta warriors and Great Wall in China, drive a Mk 2 Escort (preferably red and with a POO 505R number plate) with respectable speed through a Welsh forest stage... that kind of thing). But one item which I should have ticked off years ago is the archery and now it seemed I would finally get this done.

technique here (flappy sleeve, 4-finger
grip, stance etc) but I had not yet had
a proper lesson.
|None of your bendy yew tree wood |
for us. A modern "riser" .
|'Caging' the balloon north, south east and west|
|I pass the 700 Tweets mark on 'my watch'|
