    Default Todays ups and downs

    Went to Grantham to collect cat from wife's friend. Her navigation, even with satnav, tends to be too little too late, so the other side of Stafford she asked if she could drive while I navigated. No prob, pulled over, swapped round.
    A few miles up the A50, happily cruising at 70mph, people kept waving and flashing, noticed a tapping niose. Wife thought it was her car carrier basket in boot. Stopped to check, nope, it was my walking stick, put on roof when I got in passenger side , still there . I'll get some "stick" over that......
    On the up side, she got half way round a roundabout and a youngster tried to race round her inside then cut her up, she floored it and left him there. Further along the road we were both stopped at lights - it was a Focus ST He wasn't at all happy, shame.

    I've seen a few dresses blowing in the wind caught by the door on my travels, but never a walking stick on the roof! Can imagine people sat round dinner table talking about some bloke driving around with a stick on his roof now haha. Would have been brilliant if stick was still there for the little ST incident.

    Pmsl,during the A50 bit wife was playing with a 4x4 and an Audi, we'd overtake them, then they'd overtake us. I wondered why the 4x4 lot were p1ssing themselves laughins when they came past. That's 3 times now I've done something similar!

    why would you think it wasn't? Said ST on the back, looked like an ST - likely just caught him unprepared - I got taken once in the Omega by a Micra I didn't see coming.

    It was, we were on our way back from Oswestry hospital and my wife was trying to explain that Porthmadoc wasn't pronounced Port my dog, multitasking I never saw the Micra coming. Hasn't happened since!

    So, your wife saw this ST trying an overtake on the roundabout, so she gave it some stick?


    (See what I did there? lol)
