That car was fantastic although I once remember him pulling up behind me while I was running a steeplechase and then speeding up in order to get me to run. My reaction was to sit down and he gave up and gave me a lift back! Always hated steeplechases.

I came to a Old Blue's Day in 2007 and was amazed to see that the Trees on the Avenue, were the same as I remembered them ----------

I first saw them in 1940 -- 38 years after they were planted ?

So at 20 years old --- you get the point ?
