Hello everyone, its about hour 16 of my working day up at 4 this morning and one the 7 o clock flight to Aberdeen, long queues at the security in Manchester airport, always very bad that early as its all the business people like myself going off for meetings. Anyway I had a couple of bacon baps that they do in the escape Lounge and then up we flew, plane was early, bus was outside only i had to get some money from cash till as I'd gone casual but left dosh in suit trouser pocket. The Versa of Stagecoach shook rattled and rolled very swiftly but i wouldn't have wanted to go much further in it, seats very comfortable and it was clean but the blessed noise it made especially revving too highly at lights or held in traffic, its only £3.50 return from the airport for the day. It took a short while though and I leapt out at Marchisall college stop but the weather was cold and wet but as I had an hour to kill I had my still camera and took a few shots as I wandered eventually down to the docks. There is only so much walking that my knee can stand so wandered in for the meeting, not the first nor last but hot drink and biscuits were much appreciated as it was so cold. The meeting was productive, I'd swapped dieting days, really didn't need dinner when i got back but can't tell Mandy that! One of the delegates had the same hand problem as me only further on with two operations which had been quite successful, full details ensued which I will try to forget and I will NOT be watching him do it. I walked around a bit on my way back as I had much of the afternoon to kill, my colleague I think was tied up doing some urgent training, again the walking after airport corridors etc was too much, I've got a few nice shots but Aberdeen on a cold wet November day is fifty shades of grey only someone has already used that , oh well some photos and some of the Metrolink shots I've uploaded on Youtube plus I'm still making progress with the West Yorkshire Regional Bus archive DVD.
