After a holiday away, coming home and hearing mother-in-law (just 94) in hospital after a fall and diagnosing a bleed on the brain, in a coma, dying three days after we return, help sorting the funeral. I just saw a picture of a rusty van, I went into my cabin and using scrap plastic-card and a few other bits built this in a daze really. I think it would be 1/32nd but that's not important at present.

Thanks Foxer. My mum went when I was 42 at 82 years of age, I'me 71 now. Both Dad and brother had colon cancer so dad went when I was 27 and brother when I was 50.

I hope to live to my grandfathers age of 96, but we'll see. Stay positive!
