Jam today and tomorrow

Dear all,

I realised a dream today.

A dream that is shared by all young boys, but takes time to accomplish.

Yes, I did something for the first time which just might change my life forever.

You've guessed it, I drove a tractor!

More impressively, I safely negotiated a number of small trees in the field (swerving to avoid them, not running them over) and kept the big orange monster out of the stream running nearby.

This has put me in a thoroughly good mood, increased by the fact I'm off on holiday to Spain tomorrow. I'll finally get to see Picasso's "Guernica", which has wowed readers of English coursebooks for years.

To celebrate my bonhomie, a short but sweet cartoon from the little mole:

More blogging in a week or so.

Man, I haven't heard from you in ages, how are you doing? I am off to Japan for 2 weeks as of next week - should be fun.

I drove a tractor (something like a tractor, anyway) on an RAF field when I was gliding. I managed, ridiculously, to ensnare a glider with the winch cable that I was towing, scratching the body and generally causing much strife.

I'm glad that didn't happen when you drove your tractor.

PS - hurry up and visit London!

Well done - I can fully understand your excitement about driving a tractor ;-)

I've never actually driven one, but I just digged out an old pic from when we would spend the summer holidays: http://www.flickr.com/photos/10512579@N00/438575571/

My grandfather is driving the tractor, I'm the 2nd from the left and the other kids are my sister and a cousin. Ahh, happy memories...

Anyway, have a great time in Spain and see you soon!
