Time has shown it would be foolish to publish a list of the ambitious Summer plans I have for our friend. But then, what is a man who makes plans for an SU at all, if not a little bit soft in the head?

My next blog post will offer some detail on the 50th Anniversary Tour for those who have asked for it. Does anybody know how to bake a cake?
I meant to tell you too, a test run on the now time-honoured 'Kingsbridge circular' has proved that the manifold gasket replacement had been a success. No more the deafening chuff. So at present, I'm feeling confident about our friend's ability to meet at least some of her special 50th Year commitments.
Yep - another really foolish thing to say...
