Not only had I forgotten how to navigate myself round my own bolg [see what I mean] but it also suddenly became apparent that I had not posted anything whatsover in 2017.
Not good enough,,, could try harder,,, and all the other cliche's stolen from my school reports.
Well just to keep all informed on progress "we" are about to set sail [or row] for a bit of sunshine on the wonderful island of Malta,,, I was there a long time ago whilst serving in HRH's Royal Air Farce and am pretty confident that by now the locals will have forgotten what we got up to in Frank's Bar in Luqa village in the early 70's.
The pastures has "gorn sarf" to Croydon,,, the tool kit is packed and raring to go,,, the dog and cat are booked in with Easy-Jet and myself and the mehmsaab have been practising our strokes on Google Maps,,,,, we were going to blast through the Mont Blanc tunnel but then found out after mid October you can be had by the Alfa Male Carabineri for not having snow tyres,,, ha ha Luigi,,, if you think I'm buying a set of tyres to use just once going through a tunnel your mistaken,,, [I bet my old mate John Clawed Junkit has something to do with that bit of legislation] so we have decided a safer bet will be to go the scenic [ a cheaper ] route via Monti Carlos.
Plans are already formulating on what I can do when we finally get down there:::::
and after that then we have some serious modelling to partake of,,,, at the last count I have about 9 or 10 loco's to crack on with and a couple of boxes of wagon kits that have been gathering dust for far too long,,,, so whilst you all will have to wait a little bit longer I can honestly say that progress reports will soon be shooting off the press to keep you all up to date on exactly what is or is not happening,,, thats all for now and Merry Xmas!!!
