The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

I know it's miles away, but i might pop along who knows?

Weather will depend, not that i'm bothered about a dirty car (tis filthy still now!)

but because driving 4 hours home from oulton park last time was a mix of seeing

nothing and aquaplaning at 90mph into seeing nothing. That M6/M42/M40 is no fun

miles in the wet.

:D

Aside from that i might get up early and come. will see.

:D

Yeah, weather permitting, i.e. ice/snow and I'll be in the Discovery.

Think we may make this one, weather permitting.

Paul if you,re coming from down south I,d hazard a guess that you will be coming pratically by our house, if you and Vicky fancy a early morning coffee you are more than welcome, or anyone else coming in from the South area for that matter, let me know and I,ll pm our address.

Paul,

Be good to see you again up North lad!

Howard,

Your baby (and I'm not interfering) but perhaps a belt down thw A53 toward Shrewsbury and the either the A49 to Whitchurch or over the border(passport control) to Wrexham. Demon Tweaks would be a good stop but I don't think they open on a Sunday

sounds ok , already thought about heading towards Shrewsbury, lets see what the weather has in store.

You are right Demon Tweeks is not open ... shame would have been a good run not a bad road from Whitchurch, prehaps sometime next year

Would any one like to have lunch if so I need to know some numbers fairly quickly please and I will try and sort a table somewhere...

not yet sure if I will have my car back by next week end but fingers crossed

Howard,

Whilst I don't want lunch, have you booked it at the Gingerbread man ? Just wondering what venue we'll be finishing up at, thats all.

Cheers,

Hi All,

This is my first post in a lonnnnnggg time.

I'm currently Esprit'less after I sold my S4 a while back, however would love to come along if there is a spare seat? or if not, just to come along and chew the fat over lunch with you all.

Does any one have any objections? It just seems daft seeing as I live in Telford and we don't get to see too many Esprits around here.

I've only seen two in my time, one early G car in MacDonalds, Spoke to the driver. And a guy who was selling a yellow GT3 - I went along with the buyer to help cast an eye.

So it would be lovely.

If not, then I'll just have to nip down to Paul Mattys and see if I can get something for the weekend.... ooooo suit you sir! :lol:

Cheers,

John.

My extreme apologies, but I'm not going to be able to make it, owing to the fact I forgot my wife has pre-booked me for a day of painting and decorating...

Wishful thinkg I could have gone..... I'd totally forgotten.

My apologies and hope to get out on the next one.

Thanks for the offer though.

see you all soon,

cheers,

JC
