Well thank you Susie!!

Away we go

The Last Person To Post Here Wins Thread, general rules:

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread (use the red cross to notify them)
6. Go to 1.

I believe he took an instant dislike to the new forum and left.

A couple of hours and the first work day of the week will be complete . Only another 4 to go after that and I get a week off - not sure I could claim it's for good behaviour though ;-)

One of the problems of being retired is that you don't have a weekend to look forward to.

Everyday feels like Saturday. (Except Sunday which still feels like Sunday)

Of course you also don't have the "Monday Morning Feeling" :-)

Especially on damp and murky mornings when the M6 is a car park due to roadworks in Birmingham city centre stopping the A38M from moving inbound :-(

Ah yes, memories of the M25 "neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night could make that hellish road work right!!"

A little know fact, I was driving home on the M25 when I finally decided to give up my job and "retire". I wonder if it has that affect on many people :-)

Another lesser known fact - I was one of the first vehicles to circumnavigate the M25, and did so without stopping - try that today!

Clockwise or anti-clockwise and, if the latter, did it feel like going the wrong way round a really big roundabout?

Happy Friday everybody. Last day at work before a week off :-D I think the weekend conga line may start again later. Listen out ...

Both - on the same day, and both (just) inside 2 hours each, which is certainly not achievable these days!
