    I know you are teasing Fruity.
    It is a grey day today.
    I have a lovely idea for a new thread - a serious one sorry.
    May start on Friday.

    It's been mostly a loverly sunny day here again - are we heading towards a "normal" spring and summer or am I jinxing it?

    I look forward to you finding your tuit Fruity.

    A new Fred Tips?
    You go for it .......... my creative pot runneth dry.
    Besides which so few seem to bother it really does kinda make me wonder if it's worthwhile.

    Or maybe this is just a pre-Friday-yawn-can't-be-bothered moment?

    Tea and cakes with a friend this avo. I shall not need much tea.

    We picked up my car (The Beast) after having had some "advisories" done following its MoT test, and it was a lot cheaper than I expected.

    A bit like this one.

    The inside is a bit like this, but I have built a dolly so I can pull the back seat out and leave more room for a disabled buggy or two.

    Test drove it on the way back, and put a deposit on it when we found out it had been converted to run on LPG.

    I drove it home and my Lovely drove her car home.

    I have a chauffeur's cap that I used for MFT's wedding when I drove the Money Pit. I can lend that to Des for the evening.

    Alas I don't think Josephine can come out to play tonight.

    Hello!
    Fruity, I'm not sure if the leaky boot has moved or not - but I do know he's still there near the sea front!
    Surrounded by protective railings, coz he's been badly vandalised a few times over the years. Remade once at least IIRC.

    I avoid Clee like the plague in season (Mabo & Skeg too, it's not prejudice) and only get as close as Hewitts Circus where the big T is.
    It's the holidaymakers ........ the busy crush and the overwhelming Eau De Suntan-oil mixed with I would rather not say what; turns my stomach. That and you can't get anything done because they dawdle along and get in the way. Inconsiderate lot!


    Stitch-free? And an improved Beast without bankruptcy?
    AND tea & cakes .......... sounds like things are going well.


    Oh and that snow plough ...... No good here, we never get enough snow.
    Well almost never. (I may consider adapting it into a sand mover.)


    Loving the talking dog Tips - though I'm not too sure about you & Fruity sharing arms to drive The Beast.
    If it ever happens give me advanced notice ......... I will arrange a holiday abroad.

    Enjoy your wine.
    I may join you - from a distance.
    And as you say, it IS Friday.

    The Last Username have a lovely evening.
    There are only two places I know in Lincs, Stamford where my BIL lives, and Skeggy.

    Josephine needs to get her strength, I understand that.
