Don’t drop the egg!

My Father (and egg carrier) in the “Egg and Spoon” motorcycle race on a BSA Bantam 125 in the 1950s…..uncomplicated fun in a less complicated world.

Rat trap!

Went to the Boomtown Rats 40th. anniversary concert in the Olympia, Dublin last night…….great gig with Bob in flying form and as irreverent as ever but Lord save us, I must be getting old, it was sooooo loud, my ears are still ringing this morning, ok I’m getting old but really enjoyed the night. More please.
