  1. Thanks Dave, very nice of you… and your right opportunity did knock, unfortunately i couldn’t find the door ..

  2. Happy Birthday Alan ! – Good ‘eavens, it must be almost 50 yrs now ? Where the hell has it all gone ?
    Do you remember Dave’s big, old, former Hants & Dorset, red and yellow chequered bus ?
    And his ‘no girls on board’ policy ? 😉

    Best wishes and may you enjoy many more Alan.

    • Thanks Graham, Yes fancy seeing you here and i think it’52 years. … and how could i forget that bus, i wondered where he got it from, i assumed it was ex RN .. we eventually found out why he had a no girls policy .. great to hear from you again ..
