    Glad you enjoyed it Lex.

    We've spent a couple of afternoons at a canal-side pub this week. - Very enjoyable and surprisingly quiet.

    Sadly, Monday we are to attend Mrs R's mother's funeral. She was 86 so had a decent innings though the last few years were not of the best quality.

    We're OK thanks Lex. Mrs R's mother's health hadn't been good for a while, so although a bit of a surprise, it wasn't exactly unexpected.

    After the problems earlier this year I thought we'd lose my mum first. IIRC our fathers died within a couple of weeks of each other. - But that was 20 years ago.

    Today's funeral was a bit of a non event. The ceremony was very good (non religious) but the sisters from the two marriages are as divided as ever.

    It gets stranger; I was following a BMW last week, and the driver used their indicator at 2 consecutive junctions. I nearly crashed!

    Having become a BMW driver (I know, I know!) I can tell you that I do indicate. However, I have noticed that other drivers do tend to give me a wide berth and treat me with suspicion. I have also noticed that BMW and Audi drivers seem to be very poor at indicating and lane discipline. -The darker the car, the worse they seem to be.

    I followed another BMW today, which happily refused to indicate & tale-gated the car in front. I felt a bit of normality return to my life.

    Anyone else spot the Red Arrows skirting North Coventry just before 1300hrs today?
