I'm now editing the three truck DVDs , first of the production line comes Ross ON Wye A40 roundabout, superb spot, great lads and lasses on the lorries, lots of hoots and toots and flashing lights or were they trying to tell me something, couldn't all be evacuating Scotland already fleeing the Salmon fishing in the Yemen, anyway what does a dam in Yemen really have to do with Scotland, is it a Scottish name, after a fish, could be an Irish Salmon or even Canadian, perhaps he should be leading Quebec. When I was filming in Bolton at the 'old' bus station , well its not old until the new one opens but give it time its all happening, there were some jolly nice people there, no hassle , even stopping to pose, everyone friendly giving the old thumbs up to Stagecoach dominated places and there rude gestures. Well you have probably guessed what happened, yes eventually the rotten apple gets to the surface, the bus had actually gone to my right, I was still waving and giving thumbs up as next bus was coming around, the driver in front leaned back ( bus obviously knew where it was going, guided busway in Bolton bus station?) and gave a gesture not with fingers up but that of clasping something and going up and down, dear chap isn't it wonderful to be talent spotted as Bolton Bus Depot plonker of the year and put First back on the scrap heap in my estimation. What is it about bus enthusiasts that brings out such venom. I saw the Ribble liveried bus from Stagecoach and the First Lancs United but the latter in the distance leaving town as I arrived.
Back, yes my back, I bet you are fed up hearing about it, still not that good but not very bad, just blooming well hurts but I can't see it getting better over night and at the weekend Mandy will do the driving so I can get back on the painkillers. We have decided to cover the Crich Tram Museum celebrations on the Saturday and to have Sunday as a day of rest, would have liked to cover the Mersey running day but really with Sri Lanka following on behind Showbus I'll not have another chance to rest until mid October after Bridgeton weekend. Some of the latest Youtube uploads, must get on with the DVDs, lots of new stock for Showbus, if you want anything reserved ring or email. All the latest DVDs are now on EBay and of course this site, Amazon well they seem to have gone to planet Zog at present.
