On Sunday 26th November 06 we went to the mini show held at Malvern, here I met Craig sutcliffe an his son Kyle.


Also I met Kaum and Sue.
The lovely lisa or as she is Known on the C,B Queeny from Peterborough. We chatted to her every time we were in Peterborough delivering concrete railway sleepers, then one day out of the blue she turned up. I had to have a cuddle, she's sweet.                                                                                       

   Hi lisa xx


On the 28th of January 07 there was a mini show at Bingley hall show ground at Stafford here we met Samantha. She took quite a fancy to my cousin Moxey. It was his turn to get a lovely cuddle. Moxey was on security duty overnight looking after the minis. 

                "Hi Sam lots of love"

Malvern show 07 cold but dry on this sunday morning. Rapped up well tho was Karina Smith who warmed me up with a cuddle. With Karina was Lewis an Martin, they came up from Abergavenny but had a slight magical mystery tour before they got to Malvern. Hope you got home ok.
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, especially when you meet a lovely lady like Jean. Phil an I delivered some railway sleepers to Walton on the Naze (on the east coast of England about 10 miles south of Felixstowe). We had to wait for another lorry to arrive so we went for a walk around. Phil was taking some photos of me when Jean an her husband approached us we had a chat about my web site an Jean was happy to have her photo taken while her husband hid behind Phil. As you can tell the it was a tadge ruff that day.          Jean thank you.xx 


Here is Sarah, who works as a hair stylist for Pure white Hair & Beauty in Henley-in-Arden. I popped in to see if I could have a make over.

On the afternoon of the 16th March 08 Phil an I were on our way back from Malvern mini show when we saw in a pub car park a mini min on the back of a trailer. Well we had to have a look. Just going in to the pub was Alastair Moffatt an his friend Gemma Price, we stopped them to have a chat.  They had just come from an autotest display.

Phil an I was asked if we could take the Maine Special to Hockley Heath fate on the 12th July 09, so we did. While enjoying a relaxing lounge around we was approached by the Police, Phil moved gently away to leave me to do the chatting. It was all right they had popped over to have a shufty at the Maine Special. Phil plodded back just in time to take the photo. PC Jenell 7574 and lPCSO Shale 30649, Colin and Wendy for short.....

Well what can I say about Kryss AKA Geerah, she was our savior when we got to Florida. Now I won't go it to much detail, but due to "dodgy" instructions on how to get to where we where stopping we took a few wrong turns an ended up at a garage where we met up with Kryss who very kindly led us ther rest of the way with her Scooby Doo to our holiday home.  Thanks Geerah xxx

The Keefers, I met them in the Disney Hollywood Studios. Phil didn't ask where you came from.

Donald n Jennie Gaither from Huntsvilly AL USA. Here we are sat in the USA Pavilion at Disneys Epcot in Florida. Jennie had spotted me at the Hollywood Studios the day before, so she called across, so I went across for a chat an a cuddle.

While Phil an I was having a look around the Disney outfitters in the Animal Kingdom, Linda (left) asked if we needed any help. We was ok but it soon become a great photo opp with Linda's work mate's Rob and Mo.  

This is Sam who is a Safari guide at the Animal Kingdom. Sam drove us around earlier that day, we then bumped in to Sam while Phil n I was on the way out of the park, so as you know me I couldn't resist a cuddle.

Back in England again. Phil had a problem with his lorry on Thursday the 21st Jan about 4.00pm, A head light bulb had blown near to Newbury on the A34. We was heading back to the yard when a VOSA car that was sat on the side of the road pulled out when we drove past... yep you guess it! They pulled us over into Chieveley services an wouldn't let us go until the bulb had been changed. Phil explained to them that he hadn't got a spare an he could not see that the garage would sell them due to they are smaller then normal head light bulbs plus they are 24 volt. Luckily parked up near by was Cameron in quite funnily the same lorry with the same colour cab and writing as Phil's. Cameron had a couple of spare bulbs, so Phil bought one off him. Cameron popped over to see if it worked an I had my photo taken with him. Thankyou Cameron we would of been stuck with out you.  

Delivering to NWF Wardle near to Nantwich Phil and I see Chrissy in the weighbridge. Chrissy used to be a truck driver for Eddie Stobart, she was one of his first lady drivers...
