Back in harness - Shelby's  B  I  G wedding over [ 9th. Sept ] and Siovhan's 50th [ 22nd Sept ] ........... some ME time now !

Six of the Tales have been finalised, proof read and ready to go. I'm planning on doing at least 4 per month now that I'm cracking on with it. They are taking considerably longer than I anticipated as they HAVE to be absolutely correct, and as far as memory allows - accurate !

If any of you over 60's have any relevant pix you'd like to submit, I'll see about getting them rendered by artist pal Ian Cunningham. Or indeed ANY of you that might have pix of dads, Grandads, etc. on or with their bikes. Probably best to send direct to my e-mail address.

Still undecided about the actual book format - cost will no doubt be the deciding factor.

I've got two more - one is a confirmed singleton and the other is probably off to work abroad before she settles down. They're worth though eh ???

OK, I'm tying up all the loose ends as we should be into the final stretch by 2018 year's end.

I need permission from you guys who responded, made comments, added stories to take some of them as quotes to add to the tales.

Maybe simpler if anyone isn't happy with that - to let me know ?   8)

There's probably about 50 spoken for already just from you kind folks hereabouts. As before, ANY bought by you guys will have a personal message and be signed.

I'm going to leave it until the end of the month to take instruction from anybody who declines to have their comments used.
