Oh' Sue!

I only ever wanted a Honda and I have one of those... What can you give someone who thinks that he has everything?

But no - one of those Nightingale buckles would fit nicely in Santa's bag drop....

Very best,

Will.
Ps.  I am no longer sure of your postal address Sue.  Maybe messages herein.

Hi,

I wish, I wish - can I afford it?!

We are both well and trust that you are likewise...

Mi internet is behaving oddly - awaiting a new modem.

Very Best,
Wilf

Plus!  One of these might be nice....

But then one doesn't want to overload Santa's sleigh, does one.....

Hi.

Ok - do you still have the blood?

That gear stick - ignore it!  We changed to auto maybe 30 years ago.  You can change any whichway you choose.  I like kickdown the best - Zoooom - Varoooom!!

alas no to the blood  -it was needed for cultures I was amazed at how clean and tidy the hospital was - useless info time TFTs needed sending to Argentina or posted off to the UK
apparently I have a 2.2 engine so she's pretty nippy and so quiet
Note to oneself - watch your speed 85mph down the A92 isn't good

Hi Sue.

Ours is named 'Fred' - I talk to him constantly.  Just tell him where I want to go and then mind my own business!! Auto.

Fast... Well, I do sometimes ask him to 'put the coal on Fred' if I am in a hurry.... Mojave Bronze Metallic. Loves to whisper up behind people - but is forbidden to run over them....  Nice. Tomorrow we go to Vamos (en route Rethymnon) for some Christmas goodies.. and a stop for a special sandwich on the way back...

Pam considers my behavior a little curios....

I once had a female Triumph called 'Heather' (don't ask) - low key growling twin, very quick!  But Pam hates bikes so.....

Will.

Still looking for Hospital/Nurses belt buckles that are attributable.
My F.I. badge is not available, however I'm looking for the Belize City Hospital badge.

Hi.

And 'Lo'  A nightingale sang once again in Berkley square - having first guided Santa to deliver a Nightingale (St Thomas Hospital London) nurse belt buckle to my much hoped for hands...

Utter Magic!  Have another magic carrot Santa!  And a few for your reindeers - and a large Scotch for yourself sir.  But finish driving the sleigh first...

Will
