    You call that moss on a little used car.

    You should count yourself lucky you don't live where I do.

    Roof of the house to the rear is covered in the stuff and the local Magpies take great pleasure in picking it off and dropping it on the conservatory roof.

    Sends the dog daft and has SWMBO nagging me to clean it off .

    Yeah, same problem, the birds pull it out of the guttering and dump on car parked underneath.

    Guess that's another job, get the ladder out and clean up the gutter above the driveway.

    Today, the sun was out, and it was dry, so I went out to fine something to do on the car.

    But all servicing is up to date, all known faults already fixed. Hmmm, how about a proper Sunday afternoon wash and polish I thought to myself... ...but would you believe it, I was all out of polish...

    So I took it for a leisurely* drive around the north Cotswolds instead. And very enjoyable it was too.


    *Apart from when a Merc driver fancied his chances, when I had to put an element of effort in to show him who's boss.

    I think it was a newish C class, but couldn't tell TBH. I only saw it in my mirrors.

    (looking at your location) are you sure its not the webbed feet inhibiting your driving? The skin grows quite quick when you go too far east

    //edit: Actually, Wisbech might be in Cambridgeshire, so you might be safe



    Poxy vBulletin, why does this site use that utter piece of shite , doesn't allow editing of posts using update MS Browsers. Get rid of it, overpriced junk. Rant over
