Out of the ether, all you lovely people, hello and well met, hope every
one still clinging to the wreckage, they finally found
me out after 32 years in the air and grounded me, flew
south with American cousins but BAS wont have me not
surprising with mother superior still in charge grin,
she's done well for a primary school teacher with a
rubber fetish. Damn it i have missed you all wonder
where Mex Merson, Howard Platt, Gerry Lawson are now
.ref history being r/o skeletons I can do particularly
the funny ones see doggerel BAS club letter 34 , also
why is Nigel Leader-Williams not yet prime minster, and
Howard my dads still alive and still my hero. Sea ice
fast and plateau clear sledge dog days remain most dear
