Well Hello Jean, how are you both getting on ?,
I bet John prefers driving his Land Rover to his bike and sidecar ( who mentioned wallace and grommet ) better in this weather anyway,

Hello sharkey, tell your Dad that Dave Halligan was asking about him, he was one of the best bosses on the metro,I was a supply driver at the time and your Dad got me out of all sorts of trouble, he is a true Gentleman,
I remember that someone bumped his car I think it was a Hillman Hunter he had at the time, he asked me to say that I had clipped it with my truck while in the yard at Christopher street, I agreed and he got the repair done, it was really funny at the time because one of the other bosses got his car damaged and asked me to say it was me but I wouldn't do it, so he gave me all the crap work for the next few weeks.
Give your Dad ALL MY BEST, Cheers
