    Are you the pervert on a roadbike who got a little too friendly at the train station the other day and started telling me about how his nipples bleed when his jersey rubs? I'm not making it up, and I didn't appreciate it....

    Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo!
    Loud was the voice of the lonely rider
    Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo!

    Folks in a town that was quite remote heard
    Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo!
    Lusty and clear from the rider’s throat heard
    Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo!

    If waves are so important to you, why don't you ditch the bike and buy a boat :?: :?

    Might be, you too :?: .
    I notice your postings are not as upbeat as they were a few days ago. :wink:

    If only you could have kept up that unification stance a little longer, I was thinking of pulling Tony back and sending you at as peace envoy to Palestine .

    Well I did get rather `damp` this morning :) I have `history` with Palestinians from over 20 years ago, I doubt I would be a good choice at the moment :wink: .

    Ok, excuse accepted :wink: . Anyway you are doing a good job here, I think it has bottomed out now, the only way is up.
    I feel better after a few miles in the sun this afternoon 8)

    Cheers SNORRI, I reckon you're right about bottoming out , I know a few people are 'lurking' to check how things are going and some will return I' hope. Sounds as if you did better with the weather than I did. Got wet early on this morning (early rides are nice and quiet :) ) and went out again around 11.30 till around 2.00 but it was dull, no rain though a bit muggy - not very enjoyable, but a bit of censored makes the good bits seem even better :lol: .
