    MOT day.

    My Talbot Express, c1991, is booked in for it's MOT at 11am today. Please keep all fingers and toes crossed to encourage the tester to pass it A1. It had a lot done last year by it's previous owners so now I've got the indicators working I'm hoping it will sail through.

    I'm not at all mechanically minded so won't be able to fix any faults myself - am seriously considering doing a course on first aid mechanics as everything gets so expensive once the experts get involved.

    Watch this space.....

                Hope the MOT went well and was suitably painless.

                  Made me laugh out loud, Glen.

                  Ok, guys you may all uncross what ever as Dobbie sailed through her MOT, :so happy:, with only a couple of advisories - a small engine leak which the mechanic said was cheaper to top up with oil rather than wory about having it repaired and a leaky rear shock absorber which will need replacing but he reckons I shoud get a 1000 miles or so more from it before having done. Shan't risk that far but can safely leave it until after I return from Bridlington.

                  All your good vibes must have reached the tester, so many, many thanks. Your support is tremendous and worth its' weight in gold.

                  Di.

                      Di Allen,

                      Is there still a fishing industry in Bridlington?

                            No idea but will let you know when I return.

                            I think it may have been part of the herring trail where the women followed the fishermen to gut the catch ready for sale. I remember seeing a programme following the herring from Aberdeen down to as far as Great Yarmouth. Some of the women were amazing, smoking pipes as they gutted! [wouldn't pass Health and Safety now].

                            We often holidayed there and my father loved his kippers - used to get a box iced up and sent home for when we got back - I hate fish and the smell of them cooking used to make me sick. I still shut my eyes when passing a fresh fish stall!!!

                              There is still fishing in Bridlington and the crabs from there south to the Humber are at least as good as the much praised Cromer crabs.I can remember the last of the herring drifters on the horizon on that coast in the early sixties around September time.I don't think the R.A.F.launches are there now but there is a good fish and chip cafe over their old boatshed!
