Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Can't happen ed. The fudge-packing mintiness goes on for ever.

Not that there is anything... wrong... with that.

Right, you snarky, Yank bastard, you deserve a thoroughly good thrashing for that comment.

I shall run it.

Wearing rubber gloves and a breathing mask.

Just like you and Abdul do on your secret "weekends away".

The Mallard is quite similar to the engine used for the Twentieth Century Limited, the New York Central's overnight luxury train between Chicago and New York City.

There are still scheduled trains with sleeping cars on that route, but the Twentieth Century Limited was faster and more reliable. :evil:

Arrived today and never run since it was first purchased, the Hinton Manor has a few white spots behind the chimney stack from the polystyrene packaging. Easily fixed and with a lovely story behind it :)
