Is it me? Last Tuesday my wife, who walks with the aid of a walking stick, had cause to visit Exmouth Health Centre and, afterwards, we decided to walk into town.As we strolled down Long Causeway, a car horn sounded, causing us both to start. We turned and saw a car waiting to turn into the driveway which we were crossing. It contained a lady.A bit further along, we espied the same lady walking across the car park.

"Why did you sound your horn?""You were walking too slowly."J Wilson,1 Ellwood Road, Exmouth.PS: I don't think we will be ready for Beijing - will have to get in training for 2012.
