Re: Saturday C

Barton thanks for the ride

I learned some things and enjoyed some of it very much

thanks to everyone for your patience in the pace line ( or in my case behind the line )

cheers

Re: Someone is being a jerk

time for naming and shaming:

1. this impostor / poser ( ask for the kit - obtained under false pretences - to be returned or retired from use )
