Exhaust, windscreen, bonnet, fresh air vents

A rare weekend without a gig so I spent the whole of Saturday, from morning til dusk – gardening. The good news is that I’m now up-to-date with the hedges etc and apart from some normal chores and an hour’s work, Sunday afternoon could be spent in the drive. The outside toilet has been home…
