Hi Guys,

I know I didn't turn up today, Today has been pretty shitty even by recent standards! My aunt had a car accident (at 87!) and that's caused a great amount of grief :roll: She's OK though, Just car damage. Sorry I couldn't make it! :oops:
Glad to hear your Auntie's OK - not to worry about today - always another day to ride! Main thing is she is alright. :thumb:
Oh my God, what's happened? I don't know man...I just got here myself!

There again......true story.......a few years ago, when my Auntie & Uncle were still alive (84 & 87 respectively) I went round to visit them to see how they were.....when I arrived, they were both in a state of visible distress. Concerned, I asked them what had happened to upset them. It turned out that they had been involved in a "road rage" incident when they had gone out to do the weekly shop in a busy suburb of Birmingham......some idiot in a car had been driving tight up behind them, swerving about, flashing his headlights and sounding his horn aggressively. On the approach to a roundabout, he had swerved in front of their car and accelerated away, causing my Uncle to have to brake suddenly. I said "it's very lucky you didn't have an accident". My Uncle replied "yes, we would have if we'd been going any faster than 15 mph".............. :shock:
Oh my God, what's happened? I don't know man...I just got here myself!

Can only do Friday, unfortunately.
I might be able to juggle the meeting ;-)
Can't do the 20th, funeral to go to. :(

What are your thoughts for Friday, weather does not sound too promising.

Just seen the local forecast for Friday. not good, rain most of the day so I think we should give it a miss.
