Best Toy Ever


"There is nothing- absolutely nothing- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in a 6x4, all terrain, off road vehicle. "

As Ratty would have said to Moley, if he'd stopped arsing around on the riverbank and gone for an insane, mud-spattered jaunt through the Wild Wood in a Gator.

Officially the Gator belongs to the wardens. But if they leave it unattended, with the keys in the ignition, they know full well that McColleague and I will be off. Well, if they didn't, they do now.

If it hasn't got a ladder-rack then it's not much good at present is it?

Taking and driving away?
I hope you are insured.

Hello, Fleago - I don't know how I'd never spotted that before! It is so like the Banana Buggy, especially when dangerously overladen with big hairy creatures in funny hats and glasses.

Cogidubnus - true, its usefulness for certain tasks is limited, but I have to do something to relieve the tedium of waiting for repairmen!

Stitchwort - who needs insurance when you have the phrase "it was like that when we found it"?
