I have been very busy since my last trip and have had no time to post anything so this will be a very quick one, at least the post will be very short, however uploading the photos took bloody ages.
As usual the phone or the computer has changed something without asking me, I used to send photos from my phone and they would appear in my in box but now they remain in the sent box. Now call me old fashioned but I would have thought that if I have something appearing in the sent box I would expect it to also appear where I sent it, at least that’s what happens if I send something to myself from my computer, why the phone has a mind of its own I have no idea!
Anyway, getting to the point we went to the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club Concours at Burghley House which also includes Bentley’s, here is a photo to prove it.
We had a fabulous weekend meeting friends chatting and generally enjoying ourselves.
For good measure a photo of Burghley House!
About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin
I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent.
Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work.
I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise.
I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013.
My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie.
I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes.
I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage.
My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.
I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1

The photos are great – and definitely worth the lengthy upload! This sounds like a fab day out.
Yes it was a good weekend, but the reason I was busy was getting ready for another trip which we have just come back from, in the fullness of time I will post the story.
Looking forward to it!
I must find time to read your Ruth Ellis story.
Being an ex military man I would want to line up the bumpers with the rope!
Yes the chap who lined us up was a little casual but there were over 1000 cars there, I expect after a while he dropped his standards so he could go for a quick pint.
Can’t argue with that!
