Dear Bobby and P50

The term Rumsters sounds very slick. Would this make a good alternative name for Runcar News, such a "Rumsters Quarterly"?

Why does everything have to be Americanized nowadays?

Shouldn't that be Americanised? :D  -ized rather than -ised is an Americanism.

Or were you being facetious? ;)

ZZZZZZZZZ.   The word can use either spelling.

How about Bobbybubbles continued use of ect instead of etc. the abbreviation of et cetera or etcetera?

Why do I keep thinking of Yul Brynner in The King and I?

Hi

I thought it was "bald as a coot" or is it just that different areas have different analagys?

Our Essex coots are hairy things but our badgers are completely bald! Incidentally so are Essex Rumsters as you will see when blob posts the group photo from the show today, fheeew what a scorcher! P50 fried his spam but I kept my hat on. It has to be said that the Schmitt's stole the show.

 What fantastic day, got a ride in both Schmitts and a Scootacar, cheers Bob, P50.


Let loose of the M25...

My KR looks a lot better in the pic!  Cracking easygoing day with no drama.

Essex RUM chapter flew the flag well.  Cant complain that my Schmitt was nudging 70 two up on M25!

What fantastic weather!

Hi

Great pics.

P-D off  :( with not having my car back yet, I know I said fix it in your own time, but getting fed up of not having the car now, so going to chase it up tomorrow.

Will be out there with the sunroof rolled back soon.

Hope the weather holds ;)
