    Well, seven months after Rosie munched her gearbox ten minutes after getting off the ferry in Dunkirque, we finally have her back!

    Eight weeks to get her repatriated and five months to track down a gearbox means that we missed a summers-worth of fun, so we have a bit of catching up to do.

    After a recommendation from Welsh Winger, we talked to Mike Chubb at http://www.no1gear.com/ who specialises in ancient Fiats, Citroens, Peugeots and Talbots and he was able to sort us out. Have a look at his website when you need bits and pieces - his place is an Aladdin's Cave and he was really helpful.

    Thanks to Welsh Winger and the others who responded to my plea for help on a previous thread.

    The road now beckons again and its time to bring the blog up to date. Good job I've just started my semi-retirement!

    That's a long haul. Hope it wasn't too expensive, though with the fuel costs today it might well be cheaper to just keep swapping gearboxes than actually running them.

    Le Renard: (....)Tu cherches des poules ?




    - Non, dit le petit prince. Je cherche des amis. Qu'est-ce que signifie "apprivoiser" ?



    - C'est une chose trop oubliée, dit le renard. Ça signifie "créer des liens..."




    - Créer des liens ?




    - Bien sûr, dit le renard. Tu n'es encore pour moi qu'un petit garçon tout semblable à cent mille petits garçons. Et je n'ai pas besoin de toi. Et tu n'as pas besoin de moi non plus. Je ne suis pour toi qu'un renard semblable à cent mille renards. Mais, si tu m'apprivoises, nous aurons besoin l'un de l'autre. Tu seras pour moi unique au monde. Je serai pour toi unique au monde...


    When will you visit me then? You still have some work to do to get me "apprivoisée":BigGrin:

    Waiting for you and Kay!.... and The Rosabella!!!!



    Amicalement

    Frankie, thanks to you as well for your lovely offer this last summer. We're already planning our next trip to France and Toulouse is a definite.

    Mais, pourquoi souhaitez-vous pour être apprivoisé? Le renard devient très triste à la suite d'être apprivoisé. :Sad:
