Morning all,still in your pits. Another horrible,hot ,health hazard day,Ha ha. I've done work at both the Severn Valley and Tyseley,my late friend Derek Harrison,(he of the Snow Hill books fame) was always getting me work lining the carriages and tenders,in the old days if you were working there and known to the mainly volunteer staff you could more or less go where you liked within reason.

Phil, you are so right,yesterday was manic,last day of the festival,wall to wall sunshine,thousands of visitors,mainly from London as you say and everywhere packed to the hilt. I'm no spoil sport,but roll on the winter,apart from this weather does me in it is nice and quiet. We were absolutely mobbed in the Waggon yesterday,I finished my job in Rottingdean and by the time I got back to the Waggon I could hardly get in the door,and outside there was not a seat to be had (150) we did over 100 burgers and fries,and these are home made real steak burgers at £8.50 a time. Wish I was in Alaska.
Yes you do Signman, trickle down. The source of wealth in your area is those pesky visitors.
You and I should use anendlessstreamofvowelsandconsonants to form the words we will use to effectively assemble a forceful tirade of well constructed sentences which will aid and assist us in our tireless struggle to virtually eliminate verbosity http://brummiestalking.org.uk/

Thunderstorms forecast this afternoon,will freshen the air up thankfully. Phil, I came down to Brighton to run the Waggon for 4 years,got rid of the 5th missus,gave 3 houses away and decided Iwanted the easy life after fighting the clock for 30 years working to deadlines. So I never went back, I can't be bothered now to move.
