    So took one of the myriad grand kids on the back for a bit of a ride out today

    Ended up jumping the chunnel and had lunch in France just for the hell of it

    Four hundred + miles later and we got back home
    Nan asked her how it went as we had 'been quite a while'

    She replied with a one word answer, but it was good enough for me..

    AWESOME

    ( Hate the constant use of the word but gratified she enjoyed the wee jolly )

    500 miles would just make it a round trip Dover for us. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Would have loved a granddad like you, but mine was a traditional flat cap one

    One of mine thought more than 5 miles from where he was born was exotic and the folk not to be trusted..... the other traveled extensively, we blamed the Romany ancestry and it was wonderful when he took my sister and I along.
