I hope it all goes well for you.
I'll be working in Scotland on Tuesday, opposite side to you. Got a day job near to Fort William.

MOT test.

Hi to all,

Well for the first time in eleven years my old Bedford has failed an MOT test holes near to the B-post in the door frame, so a lot of metal cleaning and a fair bit of welding to be done, most of it upside down.
Advised on an exhaust joint and a hanger and a small oil leak, well it is a Bedford made in nineteen eighty so it is on surprise, but a lot of work ahead.

welding work.

Hi to all,

Slowly getting through my list of fail points the biggest job was done today plating the base of the B-posts and the track-rod end, the surprise on the failure list was the front number plate not being on the front bumper, major fail point.
How things have changed since my day of MOT tester and diesels are in for a much toucher test now as well, first they say go for diesel now they say get them off the road anyway you can??
Next problem will be the retest time limit on it is now 10 days not 14, maybe we should put football goal posts on wheels so that the goal keeper can move them if they are losing a game.

Fortwillaim.

Hi Colin,

You seem to get all the interesting places, if you play cards don't play the nine of diamonds up in that neck of the woods or you will be thrown out of town.

Why the nine of diamonds?
I was supposed to be working up your way soon, over in Markinch, but it looks like I've been taken off that job now.

Retest booked.

Hi to all,

Welding done so I hope I will get the MOT passed second time around, so roll on 2022 and the old Bedford ill exempt at 40 years old, if it can hang together that long.

Hi Colin.

The nine of diamonds was the card on which the order was written to put all to the sword in the slaughter of clan Macdonald by the English commander while, ,playing cards at the headquarters in Fort-Willaim, Campbell of Glen-Lyon carried out that order in Glencoe.

Retest success.

Hi to all,

After a bit of creative welding and a track-rod end and an exhaust hanger I have passed the MOT for another year, at the moment on where to go until the campsites reopen.
