RE: [greenwichcyclists] DRIVING
- Sorry, will try & not be so flippant in future....As regards tonight, again sorry, but even if I left work "on time", I struggle to get home, washed, dinned & out to anywhere before 8:00. Also, as I haven't seen much of my wife lately due to working till passed 8:00, she will not be very happy if I go out tonight to a cycling meeting. Perhaps when I have that dream job near home, all this will change!Please accept my apologies.CharlesCharles January] -----Original Message-----
