Took my cousin out to lunch. She was born in 1918.   Tom

Lovely end to a lovely day. Crisp winter coastal run, and down to the beach for a stroll at sundown.  Happy new year all, Deggers

You obviously have got the wrong end of the stick about Roger, the last thing he ever is is evasive, quite the opposite in fact.

I thought you had looked into historical posts on this forum, if so you would have seen Roger was always the life and soul of the party. Unfortunately due to sticking up for an underdog who was very badly treated by the club on one occasion Rogers enthusiasm has wained somewhat.

As you get older you tend to look back and see what you think was reality, what appears as black and white is not always a true reflection.

Yes, I totally understand! Maybe I am not being very articulate and, if so, it's always best to try to be clearer. By "elusive", I only meant that I don't see photos of Roger, and that is a pity, when I look at these photos of your TR. Whereas, I enjoy reading his posts which are always interesting and teach me things I am not very familiar with. 

As to the reason for stepping back, I understand. It seems a pity this kind of thing tends to happen in a club, any club, including the TR Register. Myself, even without knowing the ins and outs, I would side with Roger who is always so kind and helpful. These qualities, in my opinion, are most precious in a Club, and should be duly valued. I do, and apologize if what I have written has unwittingly caused offence. I hope these words of mine mitigate it, since for me people like Roger and Alec Pringle are the Club and always will be.

What a superb building! And doesn't your TR4A look just right? 

Modernism at its best, and a beautifully restored. Even the slab serif typography looks smart. Whoever spaced the letters knew how to do it well. ("A regola d'arte", we'd say in Italian).

Was this a famous meeting place back in the day, even in the 1950s, perhaps, do you happen to know, Sue?

Yes David, back in the day The Ace Cafe on the North Circular Road in North London was a famous venue where Motorbikes met up.

Music of the time was played here and this was where the youth of the day would start there run outs from.

The same things happen here today and music is till being played on an old Juke Box, I’m sure more info’ is available on Google.

They have themed days for motor bikes and all different classic and non classic cars.
