    Also late to the celebration. Never been busier, today painted a garden gate, finished decorating the living room, paddle boarded for an hour, slept for half an hour with no remorse for wasted time, and finally had time to read a few WT posts. I agree with Larry about helping the better half, teamwork makes life a lot easier when sharing the same roof for most of the time.

    Well done, Rob.

    Thanks Paul,

    I am of the same mind, working to the "a job shared is a job halved" maxim to allow us both have the most amount of 'play' time

    I wasn't sure where to post this but here is as good as any since it relates to my retirement.

    Those who have been around a while or who attended Chris's exhibition at Locomotion last year will recall this painting.

    I have long fancied a loco cabside plate and I have looked at a few at shows/railwayana events but I haven't really been in a position to buy before.

    To my surprise and delight a cabside plate off 60114 came up recently and I was able to negotiate the purchase of it as my retirement present to myself.

    I am not certain that it's genuine but if it isn't I don't care, I love it for its association with Chris's painting and that's enough for me.
