The driver needs some dentures, he has a West Country accent and one or two teeth in his head.

I can't understand a word he has just said as he spits into the microphone.

The man sat opposite me has just tried to get out of his seat while his seatbelt was fastened, his son leant over to help him and cracked his head on the luggage rack

Old couple in front getting out the G&T with lemon slice.

Left the house at 9:30 am to meet the bus at 10:30 am at Goole, it's now 12:30 pm and were at Tibshelf services

A grand total of 40 miles. I drove 33 to meet the bus

You sound like you're bored out of your brains having quite an adventure.

Why the F, Why the F, Why the F?

TBH I would loved to have been on the bus with you.

HOWEVER - I think you chickened out and there were no songs or collection.

I am SO disappointed.

I see the away team are playing the rather controversial 3,000, 4,000, 3,000 formation.

That was a splendid concert, up to the usual Billy Joel standards

He played tribute to Joe C0cker...."With a little help....." Took the pizz out of Elton John, always good, and played a brilliant version of "Highway to Hell" with his roadie on vocals

And his lead guitarist sang "Nessun Dorma" brilliantly, accompanied by Joel on piano. Excellent.

Two and a half hours of brilliant entertainment.

Now a fight through traffic getting to the hotel at 1:00 am to be greeted by a wedding party
