Not the best of 'em. A certain propensity to fall over on the wrong kind of corner.. :grin:

Never had that happen. Did 40,000 miles in about 14 months in it. Did get a bit squirrelly in the wet

The picture is very impressive..
There was a series on tv many years ago about the Boswell family and , If I remember rightly,the opening shots were of a street with a large boat in the background..

I recall that or something similar on TV. It seemed unreal.

It's good to moan.

Not much commuting to work needed. :grin:

I loved that series (bread) their meal times were so like ours in the house us 4 grew up in. The big kitchen was the hub of our house, and meal times were very lively, like the Boswells were.  :yahoo:
I was watching a repeat of it on Drama not long ago.

loved the series - especially the long suffering young lady at the labour exchange
