No cup of tea for you. I shall make one for Coops though because he is being perfectly pleasant.

Apologies, need to moan at admin as I hadn't received notification of the PM you sent last week.
They look great and a home could certainly be found...

I beamed when Corneliius earnestly enquired of me

" What is your bus called?"

Sounds like a good first trip Steve. Don't worry about not winning anything. It's not why you built Rusty. You built that bus for your family and have made sure through blood sweat and determination that your family have a fully sorted bus built to your family's needs. You wanted to make VF and you...

Hmmmmmm It's all gone very very quiet. Is there a big reveal coming up........??? Nothing to see here. Move along, move along. You might want to cover your ears though as the language is something else. :lol: In other news, I think the staple gun that he ordered was delivered today. :cheers:

Got to thanks you for getting me to a double century……... and also for putting the notion of TIG into my mind.

I've been TIGing for a couple of hours this evening.
