Anybody going to the Lincolnshire Steam & Vintage Rally this weekend?

One of the biggest and best rallies in the country. Usually attracts 240 engines and over 100 steamers.

We were booked in but I am having further 'medical issues', so spoke with Christine Newton this week and advised that we wouldn't be able to come.

Yes, van and trailer all loaded up and ready for the off on Friday. Haven't missed one since 1989, though only exhibited since 1995. Sorry to hear you wont be there Peter, several local 'lads' (using the word loosely!!) that I know will not be there either due to heart attacks (husband and wife both in the same week!) eye operations and yet another recent stroke victim.

It is left to youngsters like Mike and Myself to keep the flag flying......

Pete.

Christine told me about the couple with the heart attacks when I spoke with her on Sunday, really strange that, and they both ended up in the same hospital ward too.

We'll be there all being well Pete. I've just been explaining to Bert that he's going to "Boot camp" (dog sitters) again, he's not happy!

Ah, poor Bert. Bring him along next year and enter an engine in his name, put a coat and hat on him and folk will just think he is an odd looking kid!

See you there! I've just loaded the Tangye gas engine into the van. Do come and say hello, always good to put names to forum names. I'm the big bloke with the beard in an leather hat!
