SHIELDS-CON I - THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS

In lieu of me actually getting round to editing the Hi8 footage into some semblance of order (fat chance!), here are a few choice screen-grabs from our weekend of hedonism/sadness in Portmeirion in honour of Paul's impending nuptials.

And I still think A Matter of Life and Death is a great film....

The Unusual Suspects: Richard Augood, Allen Lamey, Chelsea Lamey, Nick Cooper, Paul Woodward, Simon Wellings, Paul Shields & Charlie Heppenstall. "Yay! Let's go and scare the day-trippers!" Chelsea rediscovers the terrors of walking on cobblestones in high-heels.
"You can see our house from here!" The Not-So-Green Dome - more grey, really....
Paul in threatening mood. Simon auditions for the CIA. Chelsea - The Girl Who was (Frozen to) Death!

ABOVE: No. 6 enjoys a brisk early morning walk in The Village....

RIGHT: Paul fails miserably with his Patrick McGoohan impression, but demonstrates a remarkable similarity with the statue of Atlas. Well, with the globe, at any rate....

Loitering with Intent.... "Extreme close-up - woah!"
Paul fails to secure a picture of the cute bird.... How it should be done!
The impressive bust that Allen couldn't resist getting his hands on - modesty forbids using that picture.... [This amusing caption-space for rent!]
Yes, you can take the bloke out of Australia, but you can't take Australia out of the bloke.... "Are you sure they'll let us in the restaurent looking like this...?"

Oh no! I hit "zoom-in" instead of "zoom-out" by mistake!" The Pagoda - "But what's it for?!"
Amazement all round as Chelsea thinks she's spotted the one Welsh person with a sense of humour... but it was a false alarm. "In 1967, Patrick Mc-Goo-han came here, to Port-meeery-on to record The Prisoner, a series that run for just 17 weeks and left the country baffled!"
"Stars are falling!!" "Father, get your weapon!" and other sadisms....
"Bunch of arse!" Charlie in an elequent mood. Not my best side....
Chelsea, who just couldn't be arsed taking her Girl make-up off! Richard distraught as Some Like it Hot is voted a better film than Taxi Driver.
