Travel by Train?

Good morning to all Lifestyle Support Guru followers! I have some very important advice for you today about TRAVELLING BY TRAIN, although the advice doesn’t come until the very end.
First of all, let me set the scene…

Wine Tasting

Wine Tasting

You are in your local Ale House (after a very convivial wine-tasting) discussing potholes – yes, topics of conversation are sparkling on Friday nights! I won’t bore you with the full details because you may wish to get hold of a razor blade or a long piece of┬árope by the end and that wouldn’t be a good way to start the weekend.
One of the company mentions a particularly nasty pothole a mile away and someone else in the company (who may have imbibed a little more than is good for him at the wine tasting) asks why the council doesn’t just cover the pothole with a PIECE OF PLYWOOD…

You will find there is a LONG SILENCE after this as the rest of the party tries to imagine how useful a piece of plywood would really be in making a large, deep pothole safe.

You then ask how this plywood would be fixed to the road and are told (in all seriousness) that nails or superglue should do the job…

Another LONG SILENCE…and then the conversation turns to another fascinating subject (it may have been about watching paint dry or traffic lights changing colour, but I was busy searching for the razor blades in my bag at this point).

And what does this have to do with TRAVELLING BY TRAIN you are asking by now. Well, the ‘engineer’ who suggested the plywood ‘solution’ works for a large, well-known, Derby-based, train-building company…helping to BUILD TRAINS!

So my advice? Next time you’re thinking of TRAVELLING BY TRAIN, get the car out instead (and carry a large piece of plywood with you!).
