CAS Vintage

I'm back!
Sorry for the late post for this week's challenge over at ATSM but we were disconnected when BT fitted a new line to our neighbours! At least they came just over 24hrs after the fault was reported, shame they disconnected us in the first place! However our land line we have just discovered, is still in fault!
It has shown me how much we have come to rely on our internet connection, the phone you can just about cope with.
Anyway as the young technician has just left I better get on and finish this post!

Over at ATSM our challenge is
