Me too!

Hehehehehe.
I've now realised it's impossible to visit Jonty's house:-

a. for less than five minutes;
b. and leave with less DW memorabilia than you came with.

(i.e. thank you very much for the card, Jonty! I hope the little miss is feeling better!)

Sorry for the delay, So much has been happening which has prevented me from organising the next meeting, and unfortunately .....still is. Hopefully things will settle down after the Easter break, then I will sort something out, even if it means we do it all at my place again.

Again apologies for the wait :oops:

We also have a possible new member in the form of "Joculator" who has contacted me and asked if he can come and play with us at the next meeting

Thanks for the invite Jonty, now you have decided on a possible date. I look forward to meeting the rest of the group. Bit of a while since I lived in Mackemville, are the trams still running on time near your area? :D

Sorry mate, trams no more! as they were limited to less than 30 miles per hour, the sprogs around here were able to remove the wheels (whilst still moving) and sell them for scrap :D The couple we did have left, have gone to Beamish.

He he... Well I hope it's still no more than 2d to get to your place Jonty. I was five when the last tram was taken off the tracks in 1954, but if anyone else remembers them as great clanking beasts, that were surprisingly always on time in all weathers, here is a link to a bit of nostalgia.
