I saw your car Andy, but not you....did you park up and disappear to the pub?

Marge: Homer, I don't want you driving around in a car you built yourself.

Homer : Marge, you can either sit there complaining, or you can knit me some seat belts...

Things dont always go as planned!!

A real shitty day all round, so appologies to anyone who was expecting to see me today,

plan was to have the day off work and play with cars ( anne (wife) has Alzheimers so not easy to get a day out!), best daughter in the world Amy was to look after Anne for the day,problem no.1

Amy gets called in to work, Anne says , No problem she will be OK for me to pop out for a few hours..............phew. she is having a good day!

Problem no.2 we are short staffed and I need to work the morning, Thats OK we can close at lunchtime and I can still blast up the A68 and get to the show early afternoon, all goes to plan untill last customer of the day has a fall (68 years young lady pulled over by her daughters dog!) and breaks her hip !! ..............................999 HELP!................................eventually paramedics arrive (very very big respect for these guys and girls) and off to hospital they go, all this has confused Anne, problems just keep mounting up and I start to feel the forces of evil conspiring to prevent me ever getting the Esprit out to this show. It starts to rain heavy and I give up and think, well next year might be better!

Just had a few beers and a hot bath to relax,

Never mind, off on holiday next week !!!

AS it says at the bottom.....................Dont worry, be happy!!!

@ hippo: Yes, we went into Corbridge for lunch in Jane's car. Think I saw you leaving tho'.

@ Martin: Thanks for the call. Sorry for the hassle you had. But who knows, maybe you might've piled it up on the way over!

Anyway, pics to follow.

I enjoyed the run out, even if it was raining from time to time. I had thought about selling her and printed a "for sale" notice the night before, but I just couldn't put it on her. As the only Esprit there she got a lot of attention. Including a couple of dodgy blokes that were all over her and I thought were going to try and nick her! A few kids put their stinky fingers all over her too. :veryangry:

It was nice to see three Countaches parked together, a De Lorean, and a smashing vintage Roller and Corvette (pics soon). And it was great not to have to pay to get in with the Esprit.

All in all I think the show went well, and I'll be back there again next year (if fortune allows).
