It's the Penny and Joe Legg Show!

Well, it is has been a busy time in the Legg household recently.

Yesterday we were at Weymouth, on the south-west coast, for the Veterans' Parade along the seafront.  We  made a weekend of it and took Phyllis, our campervan, out for its first proper overnight trial.  She passed but we now realise just how cosy she is!

Joe took part in the parade, this time for the Royal British Legion Riders Branch, which he joined last year.  He looked very dashing in his leather waistcoat and medal!  Over 50 riders took part, far more than in the same event last year.  They joined cadets, serving and veteran personnel as well as military vehicles and re-enactors keeping memories alive.

I, on the other hand, was at the Society of Women Writers & Journalists Summer Festival recently.  I was presented with the third prize in the Lady Violet Astor Competition for a Published Article, for my interview with the Commodore of the Queen Mary II, which won the Scroll Award 2009.  It was printed in Hampshire Life magazine last year.
