Mainly For Brummies But All Are Welcome To Join In The Birmingham Fun & Chat
RE: OPEN ALL HOURS - 33
This is the place where Brummies used to chat about Birmingham old and new along with anything else that interests us.
We have Quizzes, Pizzas, Local History, News, Politics, Wedding Cake, Plum Pudding, Champagne, Easter Eggs and, above all, Respect for our fellow members.
Feel ok just a bit off so may have a little rest later.
Sun shining and blue sky but turned colder now.
Dreading Feb as that can be a nasty month but the bonus is it is my birthday next month and our wedding anniversary,oh and valentines day so we normally do something nice..the way things are going maybe a take away LOL
Don't forget Valentines day Gents if you have a special lady in your life.A woman always likes a card not a lecture on how commercial it all is.
Trying to think of something nice for Jim but he has pretty obscure tastes so always difficult.

Well I used to have a Licence that entitled me to drive any vehicle from A through to K, a HGV class 1 and a Certificate of Competence to enable me do drive any tracked vehicle. I also had a Certificate of Professional Competence to operate HGV's and Plant. I think that would pretty well entitle me to drive anything on the road in the UK.
I have drove some vehicles that my little short legs would hardly reach the pedals without stretching to see over the windscreen.

I didn't drive much at all, it was just something I needed to be able to do. I was never keen on it, I was quite happy doing what I did best sitting in the office, visiting sites and pricing up jobs. Thats all I did for the last 25 years of my working life. There were a few jobs when I had to be on site to keep an eye on things and there were also a few jobs that I chose to be on site, but I always left the driving and machine work to others.
