Yes back in the day was a great place to be but the pace of life is faster now than ever and I don't think that many of our heroic efforts to change society came to much other than the fact that a woman can now get a pint in a Manchester pub, that's one of my main achievements not much of an epitaph unless you are a CAMRA campaigner. I got the latest Southdown model Atlantean from EFE today, looks fine, they can't go wrong with Southdown but I wish someone would do East Lancs bodies and open up Eastbourne buses for my collection, a nice Leyland, AEC, Crossley etc would be fine 50s or 60s whatever. Mandy's new super light sporty wheelchair is being collected Thursday next week, they'll make sure everything is set correctly, we'll have that for France which will save Mandy from long periods standing or enable her to look around more comfortably, it will of course take time to get used to.
The van is now fixed at the Volkswagen dealers in Manchester, Trafford Park, Mandy ill pick it up at 7.30 tomorrow morning, I'll drop her there and then head off back down the M56 motorway to Ellesmere Port and crack on with the changes to the new training courses we've instigated today and sorting out training bookings for next week. Its a bank holiday day here on Monday, weather for that looks pretty grim, not bad in Sri Lanka except the thunder and lightning showers now and then. I'm still hoping for another few hints on the Japanese material, this is the one I'm most stuck on any suggestions?
