Mr. Mark Smith aka 'mds141' and erstwhile contributor to this forum alighted on Newark this weekend - and more specifically chez moi - to get a lick of paint applied to his window surrounds in a sort of pre-NEC fettle. Anyway, we did that (looks nice) then took in (some of) the delights of rural Nottinghamshire in our respective Citroen BXs. Intermittently, we drank coffee, ate cakes and moaned about how crap everything is these days and how nothing is 'like it was in my day' - which of course it isn't: it's much much
worse. What with the sunshine, the delights of Gunthorpe lock (I might suggest it as a venue for an East Mids CCC meet a some point - it's very nice) AND moaning about how everything
about modern life is absolutely shit - there was much to feel cheerful about.
That isn't a strange man with a big head looking out of Marks BX - it's just a photo in a newspaper.
'Wow, look at those two lovely Citroen BXs. You don't see many of those knocking about these days do you?' I expect quite a few people said that while we were driving around, but we didn't hear them - we were too busy moaning about how the whole bloody world has gone to the dogs (which it has).
