Congratulations John. I know exactly what you are feeling - I paid our last payment 18 months ago - a wonderful feeling!  :beers:

The biggest and best pay rise you'll ever get, I was very happy to get rid of mine about 12 years ago.., although my last endowment was paid off just 6 years ago leading to a nice lump sum.

As a wild guess, I think it might just be bottles of fine, foaming ale from the 'Wee Coonty'.

Slainte!

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

You'll be 'bitter and twisted' if it turns out to be 'old engine oil' ;)

Nice rainbow over Chez Bealman this evening. Significant because it hasn't rained here for nearly two months!

With no rain I have to assume you've been peeing into the heavens again, George, in which case the Fire Brigade would welcome you
