I think it's wintery Britain. Not be long now to see the Dafs peeping through the ground. Roll on Spring.

Great whimsical photo Mick. Looks a bit like me after shoveling. We are getting buried under 2 to 3 feet of snow here

Ernest I was away on holiday.

And reason he didnt have a nose is because we had no carrots, b ut next day I built a snowman that was stood on its head and bought some carrots so that one did get a nose.

Ill put his photo on the Forum photo section.

Mick, I`ve looked at your photo and also your video`s of your Shearings tour in a Grand Tourer - great stuff.
I`ve been on 91 Shearings Tours. The first to Newquay in Oct.1996 and the last to Strathpeffer in May 2011. All but two were in the UK - had a day trip to Dublin in March 1997 and 10 days to St.Anton, Austria in May 1998.
My first coach tour was 7 days London in July 1953 with Smith`s of Wigan - didn`t put the cost in my diary!

Ernest I used to go down to Smiths depot at Standish lower ground to look through there rubbish dump for foreign cig packets.
