    Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff Red?
    Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs! ๐Ÿ˜
    ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    To quote Alice (๐Ÿ˜ฎ?)

    "You are old, Father William," the young man said,
    "And your hair has become very white;
    And yet you incessantly stand on your headโ€”
    Do you think, at your age, it is right?"

    "In my youth," Father William replied to his son,
    "I feared it might injure the brain;
    But now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
    Why, I do it again and again."

    "You are old," said the youth, "as I mentioned before,
    And have grown most uncommonly fat;
    Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the doorโ€”
    Pray, what is the reason of that?"

    "In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
    "I kept all my limbs very supple
    By the use of this ointmentโ€”one shilling the boxโ€”
    Allow me to sell you a couple."

    "You are old," said the youth, "and your jaws are too weak
    For anything tougher than suet;
    Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beakโ€”
    Pray, how did you manage to do it?"

    "In my youth," said his father, "I took to the law,
    And argued each case with my wife;
    And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
    Has lasted the rest of my life."

    "You are old," said the youth, "one would hardly suppose
    That your eye was as steady as ever;
    Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your noseโ€”
    What made you so awfully clever?"

    "I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
    Said his father; "don't give yourself airs!
    Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
    Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs!"

    Doug - "You are Old Father William - yet you constantly stand on your head (hands?)" - Don't know why but that saying sprung into my head with your remark about the crick in the neck - only happens to us old folk - had to bend sideways .................

    How about a picture of the boats you acquired MH & Chris W - they seem to be really good looking models - would very much like to see what they look like

    There were two articles in MMI. In May 2007, which is easily missed as the subject is of the sailing dinghy "Swallow", the author mentions MYD and Paul Edby. In the June 2008 edition of the same author Chris Chambers wrote a more comprehensive article entitled "Perfect Lady".
    Since writing my original request for information I have acquired one of MYD's Norfolk Broads Cruisers. Although it has the same sail number as Perfect Lady mine has the name River Lady ! No other information came with it.

    I am the proud owner of a River Lady class yacht (Sail No21),purchased as a semi kit from MYD in July 2004.I only know of two others,but there must be more !! .In 2007 I read an article by a chap called Chris Chambers in Marine Modelling International magazine.In it he told of a person in South Africa buying the prototype and myself owning my model called Sophie ,I can only assume he got this information from MYD.The last time saw anything in print about MUD was in November 2011.This was on model Boat mayhem forum .
