All the latest.
News from the last few months, we changed our car at Xmas time,again we went for the latest model Diesel Citroen C4 grande Picasso, this model has a 6 speed gearbox, air conditioning, auto folding wing mirrors, Sun roof etc. Main problem is i don't exactly like it half as much as the older model.
On the home front my Grand daughter (17) Zoe is well Pregnant (not married) and is due to have a boy in late May. Our motorcycles are in the garage at the moment waiting for their annual safety MOT test, fingers crossed. If they pass this we should have them back on the road in about a fortnight, not much good to me mind you, as i'm not allowed to ride/drive for 5-6 weeks,bugger.
I should just about be well enough to help put on our 2013 (5th) Honda bike rally in N Devon in a month.
We have settled down nicely in our new (second hand) Caravan. We spend a lot of time here during the spring/summer months. Its a 19.5 feet Avondale Rialto 5 berth, with a medium sized awning to give us extra space.I will post pictures soon.
This post was loaded from my laptop which i'm afraid has few pictures jokes etc,
Joke of the day.
As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in the Nova Scotia back country.
As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and,being a typical man, I didn't stop for directions.
I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late.
I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around.. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I've never played before for this homeless man.
And as I played Amazing Grace, the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.
As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I never seen nothing like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."
Apparently I'm still lost....it's a man thing.
