Tonka thanks you


Thanks to all of you who have publicly or privately sent your best wishes to Tonka the Land Rover in his time of need. A special mention must be made of Grommit, Tonka's internet pen friend, who even sent a get well card (above).
Grommit is a Series IIa who lives in Australia and one day he hopes to visit Africa. Grommit's mummy and daddy, Jess and Alastair, would do well to read my last post about naming vehicles, but I fear it is too late for them. Anyway, thanks to all of you.
And in news just to hand... The Malelane Land Rover doctor advises that he decided to replace Tonka's piston rings (whatever they are) while he was busy fixing everything else wrong with Tonka's heart (engine), however the spare parts supplier sent him the wrong size rings. Tonka will be in hospital until early next week. He is in good company, though, as there is a Land Cruiser in the bed next to him.

Obviously in a public ward if sharing with a landcruiser.
Tell tonky boy to take out some private med insurance and then could get lucky enough to share a room with an ML Benz . Hooah
