Lol. No, it means "and he can write it". I was going to put something dirtier but decided to be more conservative - after all, it is Sunday. ;)

Nice going scooter. 39 years in the same job is difficult to comprehend.

I guess you know how to do it by now?

Good for you Scooter. I've got another 10 years to go before I can hang up my season ticket, city suits, shirts and ties. Frankly I can't wait. Enjoy your semi retirement :clap:

Nice one Scooter. More time to tinker with the scooter and plan out your day trips eh? 39 years sounds like an aeon but I imagine it has flown by. So, what's the plan for the next 39 years? 8)

Congrats Scoooots

Can i have first Dibs on any dark (prefer Blue) jackets, and a tie.......

reason is I have just qualified as a "County Umpire" for Table Tennis...........and they are rather keen on how you dress on court.....only i have no jacket........and they thought i was joking when I said I'd need to go and buy a tie !

Enjoy your retirement....

@ jm

I'm fairly sure I will have croaked well within the next 39 years. The way I have abused my body I'll be very happy to make the next 10, hence my decision to go partial now.

I'm certainly looking forward to planning some road trips on the scooter for when the weather improves.

@ james

I don't do suits, well only weddings and funerals.

Hope you are able to get that top down soon.

Where the hell are you going to stash the hard top by the way? They're a lot bigger than they look.

The top is going to have a rack to "sit" on, but i have also seen a large "rucksack" type thing that hangs on the wall......It's about a £100 sqid or so, and I thought might look nice over the fireplace in the lounge !

getting the car in the garage, moving 8 years worth of cr*p out of the way, is proving a little tougher than 1 imagines !

but a home will be found soon, as a drive with the wind around my ears is due (had to say ears as the "hair" would not be that truthful ! teehee
