Thanks Ian, caught that one many times when going fishing in Newark and the 209 to Fiskerton

Proper bus, the picture might have been taken on the stand as it looks like Mansfield Station in the background

You reminded me Fly when you mentioned "Smell nice too" went on a Brylain bus out here from Lincoln to Boston and back, I thought they had a toilet on board judging by the smell of the thing,found out later the bus was used as a school bus first thing in the morning to get the little darlings to school and they just have a pee behind the seats,Only in Lincolnshire

I often used to wonder why they sold maggots in pints, I know you could not count them out but you could weigh them so why come up with a pint or was it just a readily available volumetric measure

There's a stall on Newark market that sells them with the peak at the back. You probably wear the tradition frontal peaked Lincolnshire style.

I got one of those caps from Newark market too. The problem though, is they're often seconds or faulty. The one I got had the peak on the bleddy side.

The man said it was a genuine Burberry. Now I think about it it was double faulty.. the plastic bit with the bobbles on wasn't even on the back, it was on the other bleddy side!
