Safe arrival

The bus was on time, the train was not busy to say the least …

. . . it was on time and the views were good . . .

. . . and we arrived in good time to wish our daughter a happy birthday and give our granddaughter a hug.

All in all, a good day.

      1. I didn’t stay in the insurance business after 1966, but always had a journey to work – notably 19 years from Newark to London where most of my clients were

  1. That is definitely a train that is not crowded. I’m wondering what comes above and below “Standard Premium”. In my simple mind something is either “Standard” or “Premium”. It was easier when we had British Rail and First and Second Class. Things have never been right since they changed the First Division to the Premiership. Football, as we will see in the next few weeks, is the root of all evil.

    1. There used to be first class, second class and cattle class as far as I can remember. Regardless of the misuse of language, I like the standard premium as it gives me room to stretch my legs. I don’t watch enough football to hand l have an opinion on it but I do love turf technology these days. Modern pitches are things of wonder.

      1. I once had a look at improving a pitch by incorporating rubber crumb (reclaimed from old tyres, and the same stuff they use on artificial sports fields) into the soil. Several places had used it and it supposedly -improved drainage and helped it thaw quicker because the black crumb heated up faster. In the end we didn’t progress with it and I don’t think it caught on because of concerns over plastics and chemicals. As you say, a thing of wonder.
