Nice trip out to the bottle bank turned into a brisk chilly and invigorating round trip to Totnes, readying itself for it's Christmas late night shopping night.

Filled up with fuel 23mpg must be backing off a bit with the damp roads. Every time I get back in and go for a run it reminds me exactly how special these 8's are and how lucky we are that Peter made it happen on his watch.

PeterJ mentioning his misted dials earlier reminds me to say this has never happened to either of my Plus8's a 94 and a 99. The 2009 4/4 Sport was a nightmare in the autumn/spring/winter for misting.

Out early in freezing sunshine, but no salt on the road thank goodness. A bit of greasing at Techniques, too many miles since the last application in September and a check on the non-working tacho. Just a chafed wire. 65 miles.

Short 25 mile run to drop her off to Allon White. Rev counter light decided to start working, but not the counter itself. Rear brake light packed in. Heavy rain all the way, and with a misted screen could barely see anything. Still fun.....

Short drive this morning but not a good one. Went to a funeral of an ex rugby team mate. The weather was terrible and they had to close the road to the crematorium due to flooding. Got through ok but we had to leave by an alternate route.
These “events” are becoming more frequent.
Dropped the car off and went to the wake in the rugby club. Meeting up with mates and good reminiscences was a nice way to move on. Lots of photos on display....most not embarrassing! blush

Grey and drizzling today, but just couldn’t resist a short blast over to New Quay for a coffee. Nice view upstairs in the cafe looking over the bay.

Golf trolley strapped to the luggage rack, bag of clubs in passenger side, nice drive to and from golf course, whole round with the same ball. Car still outside, and will probably be the only Mog in the Crispin car park for this evening's Tormog noggin.

Same luggage set up as me but no need for the electric trolley as mainly 9 holes in winter and a lighttweight trolley instead of the electric. Twice a week winter knock with the senior sectinon with usually 40+ out playing.

And yes, as expected, the only Mog at the Tormog Noggin. Who'da thought we were a Morgan Sports Car Club? I think we might introduce a fines system!

No driving for me this weekend. Rev Counter needs replacing and it's the angle drive that's broken, not the speedo cable frown frown
