Dag and I go to Temple Newsam house and get a personalised tour! Very interesting.
Siz arrives at 12:30 Dag and I collect him from the station and then go to the Royal Armouries for a couple of hours.

Buddy arrives over London.
Dag, Siz and I collect Buddy from Leeds Bradford airport.
Home and then off into Leeds.
Dinner at a Korean BBQ restaurant.
Across the road to the bowling ally. Where Siz foolishly asserted his skill prior to playing the American.
Then back across the road to Witherspoons where some alcohol was consumed. Decided to go home anb continue alcohol consumption. Than played Cards against Humanity. Much was learned and much laughter was had. At 5:30 Siz headed off. He was very, very merry!!
Woke up. Limited pain! Result!!!
Lazed around. Siz went home
In the afternoon Dag, Buddy and I went to Kirkstall Abbey and the Abbey museum.

Then on to The Maltings a very fine 'Free House' (it can sell any beer it likes) just south of the river Oose.
Went into York Minster. They wanted £10 each to look around. F**k that thought the atheists
A lot of Awwwww! With a stuffed bear next to her.
Then onto the Jorvic centre in central York where Dag was right at home.

It started raining then so we came home.
Sunday we went to RAF Elvington.
Hurricane at sunset.

Dag with the hat he bought in York. You can make your own mind up about that.
Then we came home, collected my wife and went out to a vary nice Chinese restaurant that only tried to kill Dag 4 times (he's allergic to shellfish).
Final bit of evening and then bed.
This morning took Meg to airport and Dag to station.
I haz sadz
But was a great weekend with lovely people (surprisingly enough even Siz!).
I will add more photos as they come to light.
