well, I'll probably take a USA flag. I have one hanging in my bedroom with a British Flag, but I'll probably buy a new one to "deface".

If I write anything on it, it probably won't be too original.....more like "Go Davenport".....or "Lindsay Rules the Court"......or "Lindsay, Queen of the Courts".....you know...those sorts of lines.

You know that large tent I bought? Well, I'm taking part in a 24 hour event as part of the youth group that I lead and I've desided to give it a try. I'm going to "pitch" it in the church hall....so that I can segregate myself from the teenage runts to try and get some sleep! If it is too big then I might think about getting a smaller one - but it's a good oportunity for me to try it out!

I'm definately going wimby! Perhaps book a few days off from work during the fortnight.

One last thing.....if (or when ) Lindsay makes it to this years final, how many of you are going to join me in buying ground passes so we can be present on the grounds during the finals on the saturday? If we're vocal enough, maybe we'll get a mention

Thats a great shout..........Henman Hill ( i know we all dislike......but I guarentee you on the last saturday he'll be no where to be seen )......is a great atmosphere to watch the final live on big screen!

I htink the tickets are only £5 each too......should have no probs getting in either...im sure we can sort some thing out!

Oh, yeah, I was also thinking what the hill could be called when we take over and I did come up with Lindsay Ledge too!

Looking up some extra words in a thesaurus I came up with; Davenport Dune, Davenport Drop, Davenport Drift, Davenport Dome, Lindsay's Landslide, Lindsay's Levee, Lindsay's Limit, Lindsay Levitation, Lindsay's Leviathon, Lindsay's Lump (a strange one ...mmm maybe not!), Lndsay's Load....ok, so with some words the Thesaurus gets desporate, but you get the picture

Any of these that you might like? We would have to make known to the world what the hill should be called - it might get us noticed on TV I can see the Headlines: "Lindsay fans come out of hibernation and into the Limelight!"

Banners:
I hate henman, Tim who?, Tim is crap. Also lindsay rocks, lindsay kicks ass, those sorts of ones!
I want a little caricature of linds punching tim.
Or perhaps we could wear tower of power tee shirts, with our collection of usa flags.....
Anyone got any ideas, i have never met any lindsay fans at wimby, but i think we really should!

Well, I'm working on some photoshop illustrations of Lindsay, so I will see if I can make one that looks like Lindsay punching Tim. Might have to leave it with me for a big as sometimes I get adjitated with the computer when it doesn't comply!

Well, I've whipped something together for you, regarding the cartoon. This is only a base image that I've put together to work from. I thought I'd post it so you can see what I have in mind. I have some other ideas along the same lines but will post them as I go along.

Remember that this is just a "base" image and later it will look more like a 'cartoon'.



Hope the image works

I wonder why other people can see it but Becky can't?! I can see it, and I persume GS can too.

I don't have a lot of time right now because I have to go to work, but I will try and upload it as an attached file tomorrow.

Bye for now,
