It’s been an emotional few days. My second in command’s Dad has been here for a few days. We’ve introduced him to the Bridge (hotel) and, last night, to the Tuns. And some other stuff.

A really nice bloke who appreciates hills and old stuff. We’ll be using his house as a base for a night out in Stamford soon.

He’s currently en route to Kings Cliffe (via Peterborough) his first train trip in 40 years.

We’re in our local right now, waiting for confirmation of his arrival. And I’ve noticed a minor typo.
