Just started a little prep ahead of this evening's party in, on and around the Mess. Life's too short not to be partying because, as everyone knows, the dying process starts from the minute we're born.

Odd that it accelerates every Thursday evening.

Exactly, Keith. Honestly, I've lost count of the times I've started out on a lap of the Mess, and not made it to the end without stopping because a camel, cow, horse, turkey, goose, or 'gator has wandered into my path.

Usually receive abuse from Gandhi when this happens, too. He really can be coarse. So very very coarse.

Another splendid race meeting at the Mess last evening, but it's now Friday and a long queue has already formed outside the chip van. Inspirational advertising is clearly responsible.

As my chum Gandhi asked last evening: "Why deprive yourself of illness when you can spend all day eating chips."

As a chap who dislikes imperfection I've been on a quest to produce a flawless slot car for far too long. Things always go wrong during building, and even tiny things annoy me. Most folk wouldn't notice these mistakes, but knowing they exist is a constant source of irritation, which is why I intend to succeed this year in producing a good 'un, even if it kills me, which it possibly will.

Perfection! I wonder if it exists.

Such a beauty! Dark blue and grey mohair. Very elegant!.

At a glance ... dual port with 40 Websters, 009 Distributor with the Bosch's blue coil (hiding back on the bulkhead), extractor, hi amp alternator, and BRM alloys.

It followed me home. Can I keep it? Puhleeeeeeeeze!

A potential slot project below but... Dare I take a dremel to the 917 (a static model) and the Beetle, and cut both down the middle, before joining the front of the Beetle to the rear of the 917? It might well make a unique slot car, but whether I can bring myself to perform such butchery remains undecided.

I've never thought of myself as a yob, but this is getting perilously close.
