Crikey Bobbity, Coliflower won't be very happy with you....Taumarunui.
Song, "Taumarunui on the main trunk line" I think.

And OKK, you are not wrong, cups and saucers are huge money. Every refeshment room nation wide ( and there were plenty) had their own insignia on them and this is what makes them very, very collectable. In days gone by, many a man has walked the main trunk lines looking for them. As kids we used to use the saucers as flying saucers out of carrage doorways for fun....could not break the buggers.

Cheers

I could waffle on for ages about what it is that makes me me. But I'll spare you - suffice to say that after a significant brain injury, one's never quite the same person again. Not better nor worse necesarily, but definitely different. I was who I was, and I am who I am - fortunately for me, I'm happier with the latter than I ever was with the former.

How great that is G/racer..you are showing that positicve side again, and I admire that.
interesting though isn't it? it shows how our brain affects who and how we are.
