Nothing wrong with that Pete, and nothing wrong with being 'of few words' either if that's the way someone is.

I'm with Nick, I very much like going incognito anywhere I go! I haven't rallied engines yet but that is more due to long work hours but knowing me i'd be a nervous wreck leading up to it. I supply rose bushes to a chain store here and some of the stores have garden clubs and once or twice a year I have to do a talk on rose pruning to them. It is all little old ladies and they tear me to shreds! I tell you I never sleep leading into those talks!!

Though I like to chat I'm not good at anything 'official' such as addressing folk at AGM's where certain protocol has to be observed. When I became Chairman of a National caravan club (against my wishes but nobody else wanted to do it and, at the end of the day, it had to be done!) my first task was arranging the clubs 30th anniversary luncheon and AGM. I was expected to toast the Queen at a certain time during the dinner and also write and present several speeches about the club and its members, most of whom were old enough to be my parents and had once owned their own businesses (Solicitors, company directors, caravan manufacturers etc) who were well versed in protocol and sat there waiting for me to make an error. I drove a truck!
I got through it though, with plenty of adverse comments of course, but after three years I resigned as it was making me ill with worry and also emptying our bank account rapidly. So I concentrated on engines instead, no issues there with chatting to public etc.

Pete.

And where were the makers of said comments when the club needed a new chairman? Hands firmly in pockets I'd imagine.

Engine minding at Slough again - both days this time in slightly better weather.

Had promised myself that I would take something 'better' this year but ended up with Pakistani Ky-Ko style fan again, it does attract quite a bit of attention though.

Also took Higgins trike which Helen and I had some fun with riding around the field.

I'd like to find someone local I could accompany/help at a show to find out what's involved ready for when I show something myself.

Have you got a better picture of the fan?

Stuart.

This one is a bit better but it's just an ordinary hot-air engined 'Pakifan'.

Thanks, I've never seen or heard of one before.
