Summer is here!

Well, it was, anyway. As Grandad I've been riding Oscar from Sheffield to Maldon on a fairly regular basis so my son and daughter-in-law can continue to work. Oscar is consistently returning over 80mpg and actually achieved 98 recently. Of course, English summer being as it is, riding a motorbike can be damp and less than delightful...
Yes, I am still writing and am up to chapter 8 of the latest Dulcie episode, the chapters being longer than my usual so I wouldn't be surprised if 'Wild Geese', or what title I end up with, doesn't end up one of my longest efforts. Please don't hold your breath waiting, though. It's slow going!
I've been taking the opportunity to visit the Imperial War Museum Duxford on my way home from Maldon. If you haven't heard of it and are interested in aircraft, I'd recommend googling it. Actually, I'd recommend visiting. Examples of aircraft ranging from WW1 RE8 to SR71 Blackbird and an impressive collection of land warfare equipment too. Duxford is an active airfield and you have a good chance to see warbirds flying.
