Should be an enjoyable day today. Off to town first thing, have a nice breakfast in my cafe in the Bull Ring, pick up veg's for the Rabbits. Later on were off to town for the St Georges Day celebrations finishing off with the St Georges Associations concert at Symphony hall. (It's like the Last Night of the Proms on a smaller scale). Always a good day and the weather looks promising which always helps.
Phil, done it more times than you've had hot dinners, used to leave the Avenue at closing time,Friday, drive down to Brighton with a couple of girls ( always had to stop on the way for them to have a `P` against the back wheel, )leave Brighton Sunday morning, about 2 ish and into work for 8, nearly always ran out of petrol, and had to leave our watches in exchange for a few gallons, and go back next week to pay and retrieve them. The good old days, couldn't do it now-I've tried.

Sounds more or less like my own young life, as you say I couldn't imagine doing it today. When I think of some of the places that I woke some mornings. Sometimes I would get out as quickly and quietly as possible. Other times I stayed for a couple of days.
