FREE HUGS UPDATE



I sent the "Free Hugs" video to the whole membership of The Ermine Street Guard. Those attending our last display for 2006 (gets a bit cold around the knees after October in the UK)decided to go for a mass "hug-in" for this blog. (You see, Valonia, we really are quite nice, off duty!)

H - can't see me? Someone had to take the pic.As Secretary,I am The Guard's "official" photographer. Have a vast record of photos and hardly any with me in them!

Avus said...

Tongue in Cheek - thanks for visiting. Yes, there is a great affection for each other amongst our group. On the field we work as a close knit team, off it we are a "band of brothers". (where does that quote come from originally, then? Hands up anyone?)

Henry the V?

Vita said...

Oh, la. This made me laugh out loud. I agree with knowleypowley, but is it cheating if I looked it up? Henry V, act four, scene three.

Avus said...

Good stuff, k-p and Vita! Right first time (even if you did look it up, Vita) The St Crispin's Day speech, which always gives me a lump in the throat and a shiver down the spine:
"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers"

But... no bare legs!

Aren't you all so lovely. Where are the papers I sign for my "official" fangirl status???

Avus said...

V. Well you could always become an Associate Member for £7.00 per year!

You know? I think you should email this shot to the man who made the original free hugs vid. He's going for a hug world record at the moment!

Avus said...

H - do you have his email address? I could not see it on the site

herhimnbryn said...

Oh noooooooo I don't. Try googling him?
