Same woman for 40 years.

She is not escaping that easily!

Back on topic, after much hunting around and research I’m also fitting an upgraded clutch in the old vRS.

Got to make sure it’s all ready for Cadwell Park wink

Christ on a bike, its like being in Doctor Who and you lot have travelled back in time to the 1950's allotment society. Bloody horrible greens and veg stuff that just makes you fart. When you come back in the next life, you'll all be bloody sheep.

Anyone for tea?

Talking about the next life, at first glance I thought you had built yourself a couple of graves in a DIY cemetery there!

All you need now is a nice marble headstone to finish it off.

I see your link to TVR there. Carefully nurtured marigolds and lobelia. Nothing less. wink

Glad I could help. Why wait until next year though, I’m sure a DIY expert like you could rustle up something nice & scary for Halloween couldn’t you?

With that nice little camp fire and billy can thing going on, I can see you are channelling the ghost of Robert Baden-Powell there (ex Boy Scout?).

Pop off to Poole quay - there’s a statue of him standing there looking towards Brownsea Island ( if the politically correct crowd haven’t chucked him in the harbour yet). Nick it, bury it in your grave, attach couple of wires, pulleys and rams or springs, then let him slowly rise at your next barbecue when everyone’s half cut and ready to believe anything.

Take pictures though. Good days like that are few & far between.

How are the squirrels doing Peter? I managed to get rid of the cat problem with the water canon but the squirrels ignore it. The little b*stards are digging up plants now. How did you catch them?

Iain, I made this simple effective trap.

Just knocked it out from a few bits of wood that I had. It has a bit of mesh at the far end and a simple cantilever type affair holding the trap door open. A little bit of peanut butter on the dowel that goes through the hole in the top. As the squirrel touches it it pops up due to a partial slot locating it in the top section of the top of the trap and the trap door closes. Squirrel humanely caught and then rehoused on some woodland a couple of miles away.

I was just thinking of getting it out as we have been squirrelless for about a year and one or two have just reared their heads. I can’t remember exactly but I think I rehomed about 13 last year.

I’ve got the idea from a trap someone made on YouTube. There are quite a few odd designs! Good luck!

They must have a fan assisted crack bong Al, as they seem to believe the factory refit is related to TVR.

Jesus wept. Who in the club has gathered all that fiction up. Does Les write the sprint now hehe

This is also a sign that the club is in destination F

Thank you.
Most reassuring and helpful, to the vast number (400 orders did they say) of worryingly patient potential customers, who have yet to reclaim their Griffith deposits.

By reading the article, should I assume that the TVR Car Club have bought out Uncle Les and the gang ?
I gather that from their references to;

'our partners in the Welsh Government'
'the first area we take possession of'
'We’re now busy working on finalising the internal layouts'
'We’re looking forward to getting on site'

The article is headed TVR Car Club. I didn't notice any reference to it being a third party statement.

To be fair, if it was first person we would be assuming all other directors had chucked it in and Les was doing it on his own.
