An old friend of mine now a CoE ordained priest said with stunning honesty when asked about his cancer and the death of his grandchild through it, how that tied in with his faith ,' I know that God has a plan I just don't know what the bloody plan is.' Anyway I came away so glad we had visited and although still wet we had an almost empty road back north, Saturdays have some advantages.
The work on installing the model vehicles in the cabinets goes on, all the temporary storage boxes have now been unloaded, the vehicles are roughly grouped but fairly obviously won't all fit into the spaces remaining but a good few will and I hope to squeeze the commercial vehicles and cars up a bit and house at least one more region. The rest can wait phase two of the room which will be about 13 feet long mounted on my media storage drawers up to the ceiling but able to house larger themed displays and dioramas. Meantime when this phase is done I'll take a break from building and get to grips with the new cine film scanner which is still untried. With everything off the floor by the end of the coming week ( I hope) I'll be able to access the old tape resources and get the Bus Spot Ultra Sunderland completed ready for Christmas, I'd like to get at least one more in that series ready but not sure what to pick for the treatment.
Our slide show tonight covers the visit to Redditch, infamous now for the attack by the Diamond / Rotala driver. Notifying the traffic commissioners of that and many misgivings passed on to me is another job to do. I'll also update my to do film list to the end of the year, those locations I miss will just rolll over to 2020. Next weekend is the centenary of the birth of my adopted mother, Marion ( Massie) as well as being on armistice day.
