I'm still watching the repeats, Mr D. They broke the mould when they made Fred.

I'm not a frequent consumer of alcohol, however, 2 pints of the local 7.3% draught cider is enough to prevent me from being able to walk along a straight line.

My brain remains 'intact' but my legs will not function normally.

Am I a Wuss?

At your age I'm sure you have figured out that you're not, just human.


However you have raised a hankering for a glass of Scrumpy and while I'm at the memory pub - a dinner plate sized Yorkshire Pud with the crater filled with good brown gravy and a great sausage.

He must have been one fit bugger. Damned if I would be walking around up there even if I had three safety harnesses on.

Good day all. Well we've had our bit of sun and back to a long weekend of rain, yes including Presidents day.

Strangely enough the Instrument tech Sgt at Ludgershall when I was there did the same thing. He was medically downgraded to P3 LE. Flymos and toes obviously have a passion for each other. His wasn't in good enough shape to be sewn back on.

Something nearer Mr D for history.

+6C, a gentle wind from the SW and CAVOK.
Looks like we have a cracker of a day ahead.

Kippers and an apple to follow for breakfast and I'm just about to
head off for a stroll around the village and enjoy the morning air
before all the traffic starts to spoil it. Too good a chance to miss.

Morning peeps, red sky to the west here,
Great link Mr Nigel thanks, collected most of those pics over the years but didn't have the Pigeon one.

G-CPTN, after two pints of 7.5% scrumpy legs are allowed to
wobble.

A very pleasant walk has been had around the estate. I'd
underestimated the time at which les ouvriers set off for the
fields though. Plenty of traffic. Having been a shift worker I
never hit the rush hours apart from coming home after a night
shift. I knew there had to be an advantage to living a socially
isolated, sleep deprived lifestyle.

Morning folks. Canny weather oot there at the moment - lots of bright sunshine.

I remember Byker before it was knocked down - it made Walker look up-market.

Today is Theo's fourth birthday - doesn't time fly?? One shall have more tea before today's tasks are detailed.

Good morning all.
Partly cloudy and +7C and little chance of rain this morning so
we have decided to walk into Derby along the River Derwent today.
It takes about 3 hours as it's about 11 miles but it is a
pleasant route along the riverside and through Elvaston Country
Park.
The nice thing is that at the end of it there is food and drink and a
comfy bus to take us back to our starting point.

It is FRIDAY

Jó napot! Continuing gloom but definitely warmer. Hungarian lesson today. Thinking about Fridays I always thought before I retired that weekdays & weekends would just blur - far from it, still get that Friday feeling & weekends really feel like weekends!

Funnily enough, yes! Can't explain that.

One is living the life of the unsupervised male. No more vegetables, have a beer whenever one feels like it etc. I can even fart - right there on the sofa while watching Top Gear (get thee hence QVC and The Voice!) on the TV - without going to the bathroom. Q: What's the point of making the bed in the morning, if you're only going to mess it up again the next night?

Only three weeks then I'll have to behave myself again...

Good morning to you all.

Today is the anniversary of the birth in 1871, in Sheffield,
of Harry Brearley who is credited with the invention of
"rustless steel" (later to be called "stainless steel").

As regards the weather, +5C overcast and just plain dull.
I may, just may, venture out into the garden today.
