One of my all time favourite countrymen. I was addicted to Out of Town as a young lad and never missed an episode. Last of a generation. :Hat: have read a fair bit about him in later years , he certainly had an interesting life ! Would like to get his biography / autobiography , can't remember the name of the book ?

We'll said Badger - same for me, a series I never missed and how I wished to lead a country life.

A true countryman to his roots.

I've openened a bottle I've kept back for awhile and will offer a toast and reflect on my feeble efforts to follow in his and his ilk's footsteps.
