Morning all,

Grey clearing and it's warming 35c rising as I press buttons.

Guests arrived finally having driven down from Madrid, after parking two pairs of slim ladies legs appeared from the car.
Sh1t thunk I one needs the bedding for the sofa bed which we don't normally supply.
"you know it's a double bed" he said tactfully and before he could add do you want the bedding for the sofa bed, she responded "It's ok we are a couple"
"Fine" says I.
A first that is of either persuasion.


Found Gammon Steaks in the better German shop so them with new spuds and peas tonight.

Octo-The link to the thread also had a link to a funny Jet Blue "How not to board video" which was good (and unfortunately true). I am surprised Cilla got off scot free-I suppose the old "don't speak ill of the dead" kicked in!

So why aren't they called Woodgers (like sandwiches and wellingtons)?

Thomas Nashe wrote in 1599 about a fisherman from Lothingland in the Great Yarmouth area who discovered smoking herring by accident. Another story of the accidental invention of kipper is set in 1843, with John Woodger of Seahouses in Northumberland, when fish for processing was left overnight in a room with a smoking stove. These stories and others are known to be apocryphal because the word "kipper" long predates this. Smoking and salting of fish—in particular of spawning salmon and herring which are caught in large numbers in a short time and can be made suitable for edible storage by this practice predates 19th century Britain and indeed written history, probably going back as long as humans have been using salt to preserve food.

I'm starting to like the cut of that Trump chap's jib.
Strange thing about they drones, everybody and their dog appears to be able to fly em wither they wish hither and yon, but the Police are not allowed to use em?
Puzzled of Gateshead.

what is boggies ?

Still over 30c here and looks even more over the bay.

The dogs, led by the mad pointer witn nearly dally in pursuit went for a ramble this evening, 3 hours romping round the countryside, culminating in cooling off in an irrigation ditch.
The subsequent hosing down made din dins very late. We now have a room freshener Eau de wet dog.

Good morning all. Think it will be a nice day. Slightly better sleep. Caught up with all the Strike back series last night. 3 cans of cider and seagulls woke me up.

Off to Vets breakfast club at 9am.
