I'm only guessing Willy, but I reckon that Paul might very have done this deliberately ;)

Here's my effort:

I had grand plans, but then time and other responsibilities ran away with me.

I've no idea what you're talking about   ;)

Especially as 'quote' deleted your post Paul. Lord knows how that happened. Sorry  :uglystupid2:

Oh, I get it, you were deleting it at the same time I was trying to reply. :legit:
