    Sorry all you northern Z-ers but I can't make it up there tomorrow as I've been in Hospital and told I can't drive for 24hrs. So good luck in your tinkering and don't wear Tony out too much he's no youngster and needs a snooze by 2.30pm. ( Just like me) I'll be thinking of you all, be carefull use a drip tray,use th stands and don't leave Tony's torch under the Z when you let the jack down.:bag: OH and no fighting!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm Ok Dave just waiting to on some biopsy results. I'm finally on medication for something that's been bothering me for 7yrs. Perhaps now I can go and have a pint of bear after such a long time steering clear of it. Thanks for tbest wishes. Most results today were good.:thumbsup:
    See you soon.;)

    Another great session courtesy Tony at todays meet with Shirl supplying the gratefully received food and drinks carried out to a high standard. Happy bunnies leaving at the days end with ailments sorted amid much banter. Pictured is Steves (@Bozzy) having his air bag light turned off using Richards diagnostic software in his laptop. Much thanks @t-tony :thumbsup:

    Thanks to @t-tony and shirley for looking after us all so well today, the hot chocolate, mince pies and sausage rolls went down a treat :hungry:.

    What a nice surprise to see the zed shed h.q boys there as well, I didn't know you were going to be there, really good to see you all :thumbsup:.

    A big thank you to Richard ?, for using your lap top wizardry to turn off my air bag light.
    I feel quietly confident for the imminent m.o.t now :).

    Quite a few new faces there as well, sorry if I didn't say hello to all of you, I've not been too involved in the forum this year, so lost track of who's who.

    Steve.

    Surprise! Was lovely to catch up with you today @t-tony, and of course meet Shirley as well. Thanks for the copious amount of tea, coffee, mince pies and sausage rolls. The breakfast rolls from your local cafe were superb as well, some nice local sausages I'm guessing.

    It was nice to also be able to kick back on a Saturday and not get my hands dirty, although I did manage to get some grease on my hands early on. So much room in your garage, and so darned organised! Also nice to see some oldies and a few new names today.

    You do the ZedShed name proud with all you do for the community :thumbsup:
