Enjoyed your write up on Mike Davidsons (DLRA #1) Flat Attack Liner Goggs  :cheers:

 Thanks Graham, I did the story on Ken Izzard the midget racer too. His son Geoff is a lurker here. If you wanna know what tough is Ken is 90, he broke his neck last year when he fell over carrying his shopping ( only broke one egg), still works on the TQ midgets, lives at home by himself. His driveway is steeper than any surface I feel comfortable standing on, he really is a unit.

Oh good. Grumm got it.  :roll: You coming over this year? If it helps, I have a toaster that automatically burns toast now.  :lol: Wayno

hahahaha Hey Wayno, can you start ageing some steak, we expect to be Salina bound after the salt...... and breakfast at Mom's, you can have your own toast :|

Take a little northerly swing and see Treit and myself.  We'll buy wine to go with your steaks.

Turn your GPS upside down and left for right and you will arrive at our place.

I clicked on that and it said it was like 10 minutes long. I said "I'll never watch all that". But I did. Didn't I?  :roll: Wayno
