-Mansel Davies is one of the

-most familiar names on our roads.

0:00:040:00:08

-You'll inevitably get stuck behind

-one of their 150 lorries.

0:00:080:00:14

-But have you ever wondered

-how milk reaches your Cornflakes?

0:00:140:00:18

-It's 28,000 litres

-which is more than I could stomach!

0:00:180:00:23

-That's only one full load.

0:00:230:00:25

-But it isn't the only thing

-they transport.

0:00:250:00:29

-It's bye, bye to the Netherlands

-and hello to Belgium.

0:00:290:00:33

-Mansel Davies?

0:00:330:00:35

-The company is decades old and if

-Mansel wasn't holding the pencil...

0:00:360:00:40

-..he was certainly at the table

-when the first wheel was designed.

0:00:410:00:45

-Take pride in tailing

-these kings of the road...

0:00:450:00:49

-..because this series will prove

-that Mansel Davies was there first.

0:00:490:00:54

-It's Christmas morning and

-every sensible person is asleep...

0:01:020:01:07

-..apart from one man in his red hat!

0:01:070:01:10

-It's about 5.45am.

0:01:120:01:15

-The roads will be quiet today

-with a bit of luck!

0:01:150:01:19

-I hope to be back before 4.00pm.

0:01:190:01:22

-I'll unload the haul...

0:01:220:01:25

-..and then I can go home for dinner.

0:01:250:01:28

-It's quite a sacrifice to make sure

-there's a pint of milk on the table.

0:01:290:01:33

-I don't mind working

-on Christmas Day.

0:01:340:01:37

-The milk needs collecting

-and someone has to do it!

0:01:370:01:41

-There isn't a lot

-in my lunchbox today.

0:01:410:01:44

-I'm on a diet to leave room

-for my supper later.

0:01:440:01:48

-I hope to have turkey and

-all the trimmings when I get home.

0:01:480:01:52

-There's something different

-about working on Christmas Day.

0:01:530:01:57

-People tend to be in a good mood.

0:01:570:02:00

-I might get a tip from one or two

-of the farmers with a bit of luck!

0:02:000:02:05

-A tip?

0:02:050:02:07

-A Christmas bonus!

0:02:070:02:09

-It's the same for us

-365 days of the year.

0:02:090:02:14

-We've got to milk the cows...

0:02:140:02:18

-..and they need feeding too.

0:02:180:02:20

-We try to do it a bit quicker...

0:02:210:02:24

-..so that we can go back

-to the house to open our presents...

0:02:240:02:28

-..and have our dinner.

0:02:280:02:30

-It's alright, so far.

0:02:310:02:33

-Yes, it is.

0:02:340:02:35

-There's more than one farm

-to visit today!

0:02:360:02:39

-A lorry on the road means

-there's someone in the office.

0:02:390:02:43

-It could be mid-summer

-in Llanfyrnach.

0:02:430:02:46

-Everyone's in their short sleeves

-and ready for work.

0:02:460:02:50

-Merry Christmas!

0:02:500:02:52

-Good morning.

0:02:520:02:53

-Rhodri, Bedwyr and Osian

-are here to call the drivers.

0:02:530:02:57

-They are doing all they can.

0:02:580:02:59

-Three lads arrived at 5.00am

-to prepare the tanks for loading.

0:03:000:03:04

-I got an email last night

-at half past twelve.

0:03:050:03:08

-"Can you change the Aldi load for

-Dublin to deliver on the Wednesday?"

0:03:080:03:13

-Half past twelve

-that email came to me.

0:03:130:03:16

-It can be stressful as a lot

-of factories stock up on milk.

0:03:160:03:20

-We haven't had any problems

-but it's early days!

0:03:210:03:24

-There's bound to be delays.

0:03:250:03:26

-We'll be lucky if we don't get

-any breakdowns or any problems.

0:03:270:03:32

-Ho, ho, ho!

0:03:320:03:34

-It is difficult.

0:03:350:03:37

-It's Christmas Day and

-I try to work two days in advance.

0:03:370:03:42

-I've done this for many years...

0:03:420:03:44

-..and it's difficult

-at any time of year.

0:03:450:03:48

-It's just a bit easier

-when it isn't Christmas Day!

0:03:490:03:53

-The lads are hoping

-to finish here at about midday.

0:03:540:03:58

-The calls will be diverted to me.

0:03:580:04:00

-Sasha and I

-can take the afternoon calls.

0:04:010:04:03

-We're hoping to have lunch

-at about 1.00pm.

0:04:040:04:07

-That's almost normal, Stephen!

0:04:070:04:10

-It will be much later for Wyn Jones

-who has bumped into Dai Hands.

0:04:100:04:15

-"I bought a turkey called Jim,

-Christmas never worries him.

0:04:150:04:19

-"Every November, he'll always

-remember to go on a diet and slim!"

0:04:190:04:24

-Christmas in the cab!

0:04:240:04:26

-Let me show you the contents

-of my fridge in this lorry.

0:04:260:04:32

-Let's have a look.

0:04:320:04:34

-There's bread, milk and cheese.

0:04:340:04:37

-Oh, and I've got ham.

0:04:370:04:38

-I might have a big soup.

0:04:380:04:41

-Soup, cheese and bread and butter.

0:04:410:04:44

-That's what I'll have

-for lunch today.

0:04:440:04:48

-Someone's got to do it.

0:04:480:04:50

-You can't stop a cow

-from producing milk.

0:04:500:04:53

-Yeah, yeah.

0:04:540:04:55

-Do the cattle

-know that it's Christmas Day?

0:04:560:04:59

-No, I don't think so.

0:04:590:05:00

-They probably realize the milking

-has started earlier in the morning.

0:05:000:05:05

-They must think something's up

-because the farmer's early!

0:05:050:05:11

-Do you think they have a party?

0:05:120:05:14

-It's on the quiet.

0:05:160:05:17

-It doesn't look like a party...

0:05:200:05:22

-..but farmer and his wife

-share some goodwill.

0:05:220:05:25

-Thank you.

0:05:260:05:27

-Good God!

0:05:270:05:29

-Look at this then!

0:05:290:05:31

-It's Christmas today, boys.

0:05:310:05:33

-It's Christmas today, boys.

-

-Wow, look at this.

0:05:330:05:35

-Christmas only comes once a year.

0:05:350:05:37

-Wyn is our regular driver.

0:05:370:05:39

-He's here at least

-four or five times a week.

0:05:400:05:43

-We've built up a relationship

-with Wyn and he's helpful.

0:05:440:05:47

-They're all a friendly bunch

-from the Mansel Davies depot.

0:05:480:05:52

-It's rare for lorry drivers

-to get a Christmas card.

0:05:520:05:57

-Now then.

0:05:580:05:59

-Heavens above, look at that.

0:06:000:06:02

-Oh!

0:06:020:06:03

-Dai is speechless, for once.

0:06:030:06:06

-It was worth getting out of bed

-this morning.

0:06:060:06:09

-Yes, it was.

0:06:090:06:11

-Thank you.

0:06:110:06:12

-Merry Christmas!

0:06:120:06:14

-"Oi, calf. They're having a party!"

0:06:140:06:17

-If there's a secret to the success

-of Mansel Davies...

0:06:190:06:23

-..it's that the business has been

-in the family for over 100 years.

0:06:230:06:28

-Despite his age, Kaye is on the yard

-for sevens days of the week...

0:06:280:06:33

-..but the business

-is run by his son, Stephen.

0:06:340:06:37

-Every generation

-in the history of the company...

0:06:370:06:41

-..has had to step aside

-for the young.

0:06:420:06:45

-We're on our sixth generation.

0:06:450:06:47

-The sixth generation is starting out

-and I hope they want it to continue.

0:06:470:06:52

-Sasha works with the traffic team

-and she asked to work in the office.

0:06:520:06:58

-She's been here for six months

-and works from 7.15am until 6.00pm.

0:06:580:07:02

-She does what has to be done.

0:07:030:07:05

-I haven't asked her to do that

-but she just gets on with the job.

0:07:050:07:10

-Hello, Mansel Davies.

0:07:100:07:12

-I try to help as much as I can.

0:07:130:07:15

-I tell the drivers what to do

-and take bookings for loads.

0:07:160:07:20

-Take the L24 to Letterston for me.

0:07:210:07:24

-And then take the L74

-to Llangefni please, Gareth.

0:07:250:07:29

-She seems to enjoy

-the cut and thrust of it.

0:07:290:07:32

-She likes talking to people, being

-on the phone and organizing things.

0:07:320:07:38

-That's where her future lies.

0:07:380:07:40

-It's better than being downstairs.

0:07:400:07:43

-There's less bickering.

0:07:430:07:45

-If anything is wrong, you say it

-and that's the end of it.

0:07:450:07:49

-There's no need to argue

-and they don't drag it out.

0:07:490:07:53

-It's good to work with men.

0:07:530:07:54

-I couldn't work upstairs.

0:07:550:07:56

-Oh, meow!

0:07:570:07:59

-Stephen's wife, Shan

-is in the office upstairs.

0:07:590:08:02

-Are they lovey dovey on the phone?

0:08:030:08:05

-He's downstairs and I work upstairs.

0:08:050:08:08

-I ask him work-related questions but

-other than that, I don't see him!

0:08:080:08:13

-It works quite well.

0:08:130:08:15

-He doesn't get home until 7.30pm so

-that could be why it works so well!

0:08:150:08:20

-We do the invoicing up here.

0:08:210:08:23

-There's Lowri, Lowri, Lowri,

-Hilary and Ann.

0:08:230:08:27

-Quite a few of us

-are involved in the invoicing.

0:08:280:08:32

-The lorries bring the work

-and timesheets for us to process.

0:08:320:08:38

-Am I the only one who's noticed

-that Lowri sounds like lorry?

0:08:380:08:42

-They are all local girls.

0:08:430:08:44

-Nobody has had to move as they all

-live a few minutes away from here.

0:08:450:08:50

-In April,

-I will have been here for 20 years.

0:08:510:08:53

-It's convenient as I live nearby.

0:08:540:08:56

-Lowri Jenkins and I are both working

-on the farm direct debits...

0:08:570:09:02

-..but I do a bit of everything.

0:09:030:09:05

-I type up letters for Kaye

-and deal with the insurance.

0:09:050:09:08

-I cover for Carol in the wages

-department when she isn't here.

0:09:090:09:13

-I do whatever needs doing.

0:09:130:09:15

-Just don't make Carol angry!

0:09:160:09:18

-Did you say you wanted one sugar?

0:09:180:09:20

-And one black.

0:09:210:09:22

-I've came here in 1976 as

-a young girl straight from school.

0:09:240:09:29

-Friends went to college...

0:09:290:09:31

-..but you won't get

-a better education than this!

0:09:310:09:34

-Happy birthday, Hilary.

0:09:350:09:36

-You're 21 again!

0:09:370:09:39

-Yes, I know.

0:09:390:09:41

-I've got a few years before I retire

-but I doubt I'll go very far...

0:09:410:09:45

-..unless I win the lottery.

0:09:460:09:47

-That's a different story.

0:09:480:09:50

-Don't go too far

-because the lads need to be paid.

0:09:500:09:53

-This is the easiest job

-after doing the wages.

0:09:540:09:58

-It's quite relaxing.

0:09:580:10:00

-It's very therapeutic.

0:10:000:10:02

-I think about the world and his wife

-whilst doing this.

0:10:020:10:06

-The figures need to be ready by

-Wednesday before payday on Friday.

0:10:060:10:11

-You're like a machine.

0:10:120:10:13

-I don't know about that.

0:10:130:10:15

-The batteries run flat after a while

-and need recharging.

0:10:150:10:20

-You're in the right place

-for a jump start, Carol.

0:10:200:10:24

-There we go.

0:10:240:10:26

-That job has been done

-for another week.

0:10:260:10:28

-Scott is my grandson.

0:10:310:10:33

-He's doing his A levels but hopes

-to go to university next year...

0:10:330:10:37

-..before coming back

-to the business.

0:10:380:10:40

-He got his driving licence and has

-been driving a car since he was 17.

0:10:400:10:45

-He's been driving a tractor since

-he was 16 and uses it like a car!

0:10:460:10:50

-I started spreading lime

-when I was eleven.

0:10:510:10:54

-It was a good place to start.

0:10:540:10:56

-I was too young and too small to

-go into the garage or drive a lorry.

0:10:570:11:01

-Spreading lime was the easiest place

-for me to start.

0:11:020:11:06

-It's important

-to come up through the ranks.

0:11:060:11:09

-I wouldn't want him to do it

-in any other way.

0:11:100:11:13

-That's the way I did it.

0:11:130:11:14

-I finished school

-and started bagging coal.

0:11:140:11:17

-I worked my way up.

0:11:180:11:20

-It's an important part

-of the business.

0:11:200:11:23

-It's important

-to start at the bottom...

0:11:230:11:26

-..to get the perspective

-of our workers.

0:11:260:11:29

-I'll earn more respect

-by doing this.

0:11:290:11:32

-They won't be able to say

-that I don't understand...

0:11:330:11:36

-..because I've started

-in the same place.

0:11:360:11:39

-We all start in the same place

-and are all equal.

0:11:400:11:45

-Scott has been coming to us...

0:11:450:11:47

-..since his feet

-were able to reach the pedals.

0:11:470:11:51

-It's about 7.30am

-and a school day...

0:11:510:11:55

-..so he'll have to go

-to school later.

0:11:560:11:58

-This is extra-curricular

-as they don't teach it in schools.

0:11:580:12:02

-It's more beneficial

-than the national curriculum!

0:12:030:12:06

-The headmaster of the school

-in Cresselly has been on the phone.

0:12:080:12:12

-Yes, it's time to go back.

0:12:130:12:15

-I told him this was

-extra-curricular.

0:12:150:12:18

-A lot of children in school haven't

-worked a day in their lives...

0:12:200:12:24

-..and haven't really grown up.

0:12:250:12:27

-By working, you mature quicker...

0:12:280:12:30

-..and think more like an adult.

0:12:300:12:34

-It prepares you for the world.

0:12:340:12:36

-Scott is interested in the workshops

-and engineering.

0:12:370:12:41

-He plans to do a degree

-in engineering.

0:12:410:12:44

-A degree is a step

-in the right direction...

0:12:440:12:47

-..but how is he coping

-with the work?

0:12:470:12:50

-He learns faster

-than anyone else in the family.

0:12:500:12:53

-He's very intelligent

-and can do everything we ask of him.

0:12:530:12:57

-A reliable team is essential

-for the success of any business.

0:13:130:13:18

-Mansel Davies has a willing

-workforce on its own doorstep.

0:13:180:13:22

-Generations of the same family

-have worked for the business.

0:13:220:13:27

-It continues to this day.

0:13:270:13:29

-We employ as many local people

-as is possible.

0:13:290:13:33

-Everyone who works here

-lives within 25 miles of the yard.

0:13:330:13:38

-They live in this village,

-the next village and Crymych.

0:13:390:13:43

-One worker's grandfather

-has recently retired...

0:13:430:13:47

-..and he was with us

-for over 40 years.

0:13:480:13:51

-His son came to us

-when he finished school...

0:13:510:13:55

-..and his granddaughter

-drives for us too.

0:13:550:13:58

-I've worked for Mansel

-for two years.

0:13:590:14:02

-I left school and went to college.

0:14:020:14:05

-I came to work here

-as soon as I finished in college.

0:14:050:14:10

-Dad and Dat-cu worked here

-so I've grown up around lorries.

0:14:100:14:14

-She always enjoyed coming with me.

0:14:150:14:18

-As she got older,

-she enjoyed doing some driving.

0:14:180:14:22

-She'd move the lorry

-whilst sitting on my lap.

0:14:220:14:25

-I'd come back

-and unhitch the trailer.

0:14:250:14:28

-She'd jump into the cab

-and drive the lorry to the yard...

0:14:290:14:34

-..fill it with diesel and park it.

0:14:340:14:37

-She gets on well with the lads.

0:14:370:14:39

-She's just like me and enjoys

-a bit of fun and some leg-pulling.

0:14:400:14:44

-I was apprehensive at first.

0:14:450:14:47

-There's only a few women here

-and I didn't know what would happen.

0:14:470:14:52

-I told her

-to give as good as she got.

0:14:530:14:56

-That's exactly what she did...

0:14:570:14:59

-..and people think the world of her.

0:14:590:15:02

-They can't do enough for her.

0:15:020:15:05

-I've grown up

-around a lot of them...

0:15:060:15:08

-..so it was a bit strange

-when I started out by myself.

0:15:080:15:13

-I kept looking for my father.

0:15:130:15:16

-I was a bit worried

-because I'm a girl.

0:15:160:15:19

-I thought they would be

-a bit wary of me.

0:15:190:15:23

-They let me get on with it...

0:15:230:15:26

-..and don't offer to help me

-because I'm a girl.

0:15:260:15:30

-They let me do it

-and we have a laugh together.

0:15:300:15:33

-The lads talk about lads' things.

0:15:340:15:36

-I just laugh

-and go along with the banter.

0:15:370:15:40

-You can't take it to heart...

0:15:400:15:43

-..or you'll worry that you're

-disliked but it's just banter.

0:15:430:15:48

-They all have

-a lot of respect for her.

0:15:480:15:51

-She can do the job as well as any

-of them so deserves their respect.

0:15:510:15:55

-She's as good as anyone

-on our workforce.

0:15:560:15:59

-I prefer doing this.

0:15:590:16:01

-I don't care

-what other people think about it.

0:16:010:16:04

-I don't know why there aren't

-more people doing it.

0:16:040:16:08

-It's an easy job

-and isn't difficult.

0:16:080:16:11

-You have a good laugh too.

0:16:110:16:13

-It could be scary because

-you're driving something so big...

0:16:130:16:17

-..but it's like riding a bike.

0:16:170:16:19

-When you get used to it, you know

-what you're doing and it's easy.

0:16:200:16:24

-To get under a lorry...

0:16:240:16:27

-..you could be pumping

-until your legs turn to jelly.

0:16:270:16:31

-Thankfully, they have a few tools

-for the job.

0:16:310:16:34

-We're using the lift to

-raise the lorry to change a spring.

0:16:340:16:38

-One of the springs

-have broken on the second axle.

0:16:380:16:41

-This is known as a column lift.

0:16:420:16:44

-They fit under every wheel

-of the lorry.

0:16:440:16:47

-Each stand can lift

-about 7.5 tonnes.

0:16:470:16:51

-They have Bluetooth

-so don't have any cables.

0:16:510:16:55

-We can use up to eight lifts on the

-same setting or just use one or two.

0:16:550:17:01

-We can alter the settings

-so that they move individually.

0:17:010:17:06

-It's state-of-the-art equipment.

0:17:060:17:09

-Gethin loves his job.

0:17:100:17:11

-You wouldn't find me under there

-even if it is state-of-the-art!

0:17:110:17:16

-I find it easier

-when I'm doing an inspection.

0:17:160:17:19

-A pit is better for some things

-but I like the columns.

0:17:190:17:24

-It was one of the sections

-of the spring.

0:17:260:17:29

-This can replace the broken one

-and hope everything is alright.

0:17:290:17:34

-Yes, there's a tool for everything

-under the sun.

0:17:360:17:40

-Kaye was lucky to get wheels

-when he started in the 1950s!

0:17:410:17:45

-I came out of the army

-and came home in 1956.

0:17:500:17:53

-I drove lorries with my father

-at first...

0:17:530:17:56

-..before expanding the business.

0:17:570:17:59

-The railways closed

-in 1962 and 1963.

0:18:000:18:03

-Dad had an operation on his back

-and had spinal cord damage...

0:18:030:18:07

-..and planned to sell the business

-in 1964...

0:18:080:18:11

-..but I offered to buy it from him.

0:18:120:18:15

-It has changed a lot

-and we now run about 180 lorries...

0:18:150:18:19

-..and have a workforce of 300.

0:18:200:18:22

-He's a great role model.

0:18:240:18:25

-Sasha and Scott worship him

-and he worships them.

0:18:260:18:29

-Dat-cu has been a massive influence.

0:18:300:18:32

-He's someone I admire

-because he's worked so hard.

0:18:330:18:36

-He's done so much.

0:18:370:18:38

-It grew from five to 130 lorries

-before Dad took over.

0:18:390:18:43

-All the lads admire him...

0:18:430:18:45

-..whether they have been here

-for five minutes or 40 years.

0:18:450:18:49

-I raise my hat to him and

-hope to be just like him one day.

0:18:500:18:54

-This influential figure has reached

-a respectable age today...

0:18:550:19:00

-..but I doubt it makes

-any difference to him.

0:19:000:19:03

-This is from me.

0:19:040:19:05

-Thank you very much.

0:19:050:19:06

-Thank you very much.

-

-That's fine.

0:19:060:19:08

-How are you today?

0:19:080:19:09

-It's just like any other day for him

-as he was still here at 6.00am.

0:19:100:19:14

-The girls put up some photographs,

-made a fuss and got him a cake.

0:19:140:19:20

-It sounds like a right old shindig.

0:19:200:19:23

-No, I've never believed in parties.

0:19:230:19:26

-Someone needs to share that message.

0:19:260:19:29

-Hello, how are you?

0:19:300:19:32

-She's been busy cooking.

0:19:320:19:34

-Yes, sausage rolls.

0:19:340:19:37

-Don't drop it.

0:19:390:19:40

-Don't drop it.

-

-No, I won't.

0:19:400:19:42

-It's a picture of our first ever

-Volvo with the number JDE 535L.

0:19:430:19:47

-A Volvo sales director brought this

-from Warwick the other day.

0:19:480:19:52

-It's a shame

-to cut through the lorry.

0:19:520:19:55

-We're going to cut it and eat it.

0:19:550:19:58

-There's a candle

-for every ten years.

0:19:590:20:01

-There's eight candles.

0:20:020:20:03

-You've worked it out.

0:20:040:20:05

-I didn't count them.

0:20:050:20:06

-I didn't count them.

-

-That's why I counted them.

0:20:060:20:08

-The team is determined

-to celebrate Kaye's birthday.

0:20:090:20:14

-He's coming now.

0:20:140:20:15

-And for someone

-who doesn't want to a party...

0:20:160:20:19

-CHEERING

0:20:190:20:20

-..they've laid out quite a spread.

0:20:210:20:23

-Do they need to twist his arm

-to have a glass of fizz?

0:20:230:20:27

-He was shocked to see

-what people had done for him.

0:20:270:20:30

-He doesn't like it

-but enjoys the attention.

0:20:300:20:34

-He's about to get

-even more attention.

0:20:340:20:38

-Alwyn Humphreys

-has arrived with a special present.

0:20:380:20:42

-Who's having their birthday today?

0:20:420:20:45

-Kaye!

0:20:450:20:47

-Kaye Mansel Davies.

0:20:470:20:48

-First, I'd like to wish you

-a happy 80th birthday...

0:20:490:20:54

-..but you're also Salt of the Earth.

0:20:540:20:56

-Congratulations to you.

0:20:570:20:58

-CHEERING

0:20:580:21:00

-This is the longest that Kaye

-has been away from the yard.

0:21:000:21:04

-If he can't stop work today,

-when can he do it?

0:21:040:21:08

-Amidst the celebrations...

0:21:080:21:10

-Where's Kaye now?

0:21:110:21:12

-Yes, he's escaped again.

0:21:130:21:15

-He's on the yard

-more than he's in the office.

0:21:150:21:18

-He must walk miles every day.

0:21:180:21:20

-I just check

-that everything is being done.

0:21:200:21:23

-He's often in here.

0:21:240:21:25

-Too often sometimes!

0:21:250:21:28

-It's his company so we do our best

-to repair everything.

0:21:280:21:32

-We keep things running.

0:21:330:21:34

-I'm better than I used to be.

0:21:350:21:36

-I'm here every day by about 5.45am

-and might be home by 7.30pm.

0:21:370:21:43

-I don't know about

-that bit in the middle.

0:21:430:21:46

-He knows everyone

-and they all get along.

0:21:470:21:49

-He preaches sometimes

-but everyone understands each other.

0:21:500:21:54

-Everybody respects him

-and he's generally very good.

0:21:550:21:59

-We all argue but he's the boss

-at the end of the day...

0:22:000:22:03

-..and everyone respects him.

0:22:040:22:07

-Behind every great man

-is a great woman.

0:22:070:22:10

-How long have you been married?

0:22:100:22:12

-How long have you been married?

-

-It's been 56 years.

0:22:120:22:14

-What's he like to live with?

0:22:140:22:16

-No comment!

0:22:160:22:18

-No, it's very easy. He spoils me.

0:22:180:22:21

-He's a bit of a workaholic.

0:22:210:22:23

-He's a bit of a workaholic.

-

-He is a workaholic, yes.

0:22:230:22:24

-Early in the morning

-and late at night.

0:22:250:22:27

-He comes home, has dinner

-and goes to sleep.

0:22:270:22:30

-Perfect.

0:22:300:22:31

-Fifty-six years of marriage

-and five minutes of conversation!

0:22:320:22:36

-You can go home as it isn't

-every day that you turn 80.

0:22:360:22:40

-How do you feel?

0:22:400:22:41

-How do you feel?

-

-Fine.

0:22:410:22:42

-You look wonderful.

0:22:420:22:43

-You look wonderful.

-

-Yes, but I'm a bit older.

0:22:430:22:45

-He definitely isn't going to retire.

0:22:460:22:48

-He doesn't know any different

-and I wouldn't want him to retire.

0:22:490:22:53

-This is his life.

0:22:530:22:55

-I hope he can keep coming here

-for a while...

0:22:550:22:59

-..and that he stays healthy

-so that he can do as he pleases.

0:22:590:23:03

-Nobody expects him to retire

-but does he?

0:23:040:23:07

-I can't afford to retire.

0:23:070:23:09

-I've got to work.

0:23:100:23:11

-The place wouldn't be the same

-without him.
