The lamp post!

Ah yes, fond memories indeed. I well remember that night, returning from my future better halfs appartment down by the racetrack, when my Chevrolet Impala drifted around the bend and I entered a darkened area. I found myself evading several Bahraini policemen in the middle of my carriageway concealed by the night!. "Nil point" fortunately but I noticed that the dark area was due to a lamp post having collided with a land rover. GL tells me that Al wanted to install a plaque on the replacement post, as he had paid for it. This was not allowed!

RIP dear friend.
