OK Coop.

We will catch up with the old devil at some point.

What about his 'Minder' Sandy? does she fancy another EB outing?..and yourself of course!

Regards Bill.
I'll pay Ralph's entry fee with mine when I get round to calling in one Thursday night before Christmas.

Or the upcoming open GT meeting if I can make it.

Sandy says she's only driving the taxi
