Racing on Little Muddle! Is that allowed?

 

 

Anything over a walking pace is considered 'racing'.

Racing through the station, even Encombe, ok.

 

Racing into the station, worrying, as it implies a stop!

 

Of course it could be the driver's going for a handbrake turn, to avoid hitting the wall.

I think it was a spelling mistake. What he actually meant to type was 'rating' into the station. Quite what rating into the station is I'm not too sure. Perhaps the more learned members of the committee may have an answer?

A fine heritage if I may say :drinks:

One cannot be too careful in one's choice of family!

Although, despite in my youth living on licenced premises and with other family-run pubs within easy walking distance, I do drink very little ,usually only with a meal , and I don't remember when I last went to a pub just for a pint. ( saw too many people fall down the steps on Week-end nights!)  Being a pillar of virtue I never smoked either. :angel:

I used to envy people who smoked... think of the money they could save if they gave up smoking.  I never had that option!

 

Sorry ...Off Topic!  i do envy Kevin's skill with the camera.

Rating? Is that what the Winslow Boy would have become if he hadn't been thrown out of Naval College?

I gave up smoking when I went to University, because I found that I couldn't afford to smoke, drink, drive a car and go out with women. I'm still not sure whether I made the right choice...

Given the Little Muddle record with opening doors to date, vide the engine shed, I do not feel this will end well.

I've nothing against Plymouth personally (far better than Portsmouth), but as ex-Navy I have to confess that I was once a "snotty".  Casting my mind back, I suspect a few people had an aversion to me then as well!

I think that most people have an aversion to something or other. I, for example, have an aversion to apostrophe abuser's.

Paraffin and a wire brush for extreme cases.

 

The manor does look well there, even though it has more wheels and a lot more cab than I am used to. As usual I am drawn past it to see what is in the rest of the picture!
