Sad this morning. Laughing and joking with friend and workmate on Friday, he's dead on Saturday. Our tight knit band of five rheumatic reprobates, all ex-forces and retired from further careers and none in the first flush of youth, is a man down. Mad as a box of frogs mind you. Only last week we were barreling down the A16 from Calais to Paris when we got a tug from the motorway patrol. He jumped out telling me that he could speak the lingo having served ten years over here. I sat wetting myself as he tried talking to them in rather poor, vernacular ridden, German. Situation was resolved by changing a rear marker lamp and by me telling the by now bemused Gendarmes that 'mon ami il est en sortie de l'hopital psychiatrique'.

'Night winger.
