......is doing just fine. I have just got back after spending a very enjoyable day with him and Andy (Boffin) along with Sheila.

We went for a drive and introduced Marty to some lovely old italian motorbikes, along with some good old fashioned British summer weather (lol), and then had a nice lunch together.

Thanks to Andy and his good lady wife Sheila for their hospitality and here's to a safe trip back to Vancouver for Marty.

Sorry to say that neither Steve nor I took a camera with us.

 

I had the good fortune to spend last Monday with Marty as well. I took one or two pictures then, some on my Canon 400D, but mostly on my (crappy) cellphone.

Marty stood in front of Hawker Siddeley Nimrod R1 XV664 - ex 51sqdn RAF, on which I spent several years of my RAF career.

It was good to meet Marty and to see Steve again. The weather was not kind, even for England. but the company was warm and enjoyable.

 

It was a shame that events conspired to prevent us riding together, perhaps another time.

Marty,

It's all in the grimace ...... Lol

A photo paints a thousand words.

 

Since you left we've had a drop of rain and it's been a bit breezy...........

 

Enjoy the rest of your trip and remember ...... Wherever you go .....there you are.
