Rainy Helicopter Day

The February 2016 mini beano. A yellow Met Office warning for wind and rain. Asda Full English where it’s scrambled egg. Costa Coffee to watch the rain and a very friendly welcome from the International Helicopter Museum.

The month of:-

Fried Bread
2 years in the rain
Tanks in the rain
Flooded roads
Prime speed
More food for Derek
Birthday in the rain
Bowie dies
15 and ready
Extra power x 4
And then there were two
Twitter Whales
And back to 7
T-shirts across the pond with snow
A fiver is not enough
A touch more rain
Lidl every so often


Coming in February 2016

More Helicopters and free rooms
