Trains and Boats (we flew the planes earlier in the month)
Well not strictly true that we flew the planes, just call is (creative license).
This was an offer too good to miss out on one of our listeners Damian invited us on board the old Italian fishing boat he is restoring, as I already said too good an offer to refuse especially given the weather was glorious for our trip South.
We had a superb morning onboard with a welcome of bacon sandwiches, what could be better? (I guess something like tofu if you are a veggie), mind you we dont worry about that, who doesnt enjoy the smell of bacon cooking as much as the bacon itself. Incidentally one of my sisters who is a veggie reckons she could still eat a bacon sandwich when she smells it cooking. I know exactly what she means!
Now as luck would have it as we were sat on Damians boat when an old steam train went past the top of the marina, it turns out it was on what is the oldest and busiest heritage line in Europe. David made the decision we should catch the train somewhere a decision he could well regret as he had to put his hand in his pocket to pay for the quite expensive trip to the seaside.
An excellent day out which we hope you will enjoy with the podcast, of ocurse if you have any ideas for a future show then please let us know.
Enjoy the trip. Toot Toot
July Special from Cotswold Airport
This is a special OB of our day at Cotswold Airport in Wiltshire. It is the largest independantly owned airport in Europe, originally known as RAF Kemble it was where the Red Arrows were based from their start up until their move in March 1983.
If you pass the airport now you are more likley to see upwards of 50+ commercial jets such as 747 etc. For as well as being an operational airport it is also the home to Air Salvage International a company started over 25years ago and has developed into a hugely respected global business offering professional asset management services to banks, lessors, insurers and commercial airlines.
Join us on this fascinating show as we are guided around by the CEO and MD of Air Salvage International Mark Gregory.
The world of Old Gits in July 2022
Well its the summer season for us Old Gits, although of course other parts of the preverbial, may well be celebrating winter! All that really matters is we have our shorts and tshirts, all creased and probably way best their very best (some would say not unlike us Old Gits).
As its summer I am off outside to enjoy the sunshine, given that we don't see a lot of it in the UK. You just do what is easy for you that is grab a relaxing spot, something enjoyable in a glass and put headphones in or ear pods (see even Old Gits no the latest tech words).
More importantly enjoy this months podcast, which for those who are desperate to know will shortly change to a weekly podcast.
Blimey, as Old Gits, time never stands still, neither do we. Here is our June Podcast
We realised that whilst we had produced our first outside broadcast since the pandemic hit, we had failed to incluude the show as a Podcast, even though we had managed to run it as part of our weekly radio shows.
Pin back your ears and be ready for our tour of London, (well all the FREE bits after all we are Old Gits and on a very tight budget, well maybe one or two of us are just tight!) For those listening around the world, London is the same as any Global capital city, over priced and over hyped and fortuately enough for us over here, otherwise we wouldn't have visited.
As we always say, enjoy the Podcast and remember, thanks for listening and spending part of your valuable time with 3 Old Gits, consider it part of your helping the aged in the community.

Have a good month
