'ning

dawn is lightening the sky behind the volcanos, shiny bike has been assembled and soon i ride

was 30-ish yesterday, nice to have sun and warmth after another poor showing by the uk weather this summer

bought 84 cans of beer on the way from the airport, only realised last night the wonderful news that due to a special offer all 84 have an extra 14% of beer, that's almost an extra twelve cans, chin chin

bit more shopping later, then it will be sunbed time
my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Ciao

    Sun is shining but a tad of breeze but absolutely nothing to moan about. Off to work for an hour then chill in' with BAmbino - should be grand.

    Ciao for now.

    went up to yaiza to check everything works ok and sip the first cafe solo of the trip, then back through los hervideros, 'the swoopy road of pointy death' in the notably compact local dialect, nice 40k loop

    the sun is shining, as i zoomed along i laughed out loud and my shiny bike howled to the volcanoes that gave it birth

    Surely this thread should be called 'Womble Wedding Saturday' given that Seano is signing his life away again today.

    We're deciding what to do in Sixfingerland before headed home.

    Run a few of them over. 30 mph is enough or else you'll ruin the front grille.

    Keep up the prose sungod, Hemingway would be proud of you.

    Me still recovering me. Non stop rain for 2 days. I see MF's back with his different perspective on things.
    Laters.

    I'd forgotten about that, poor chap.
    Traditional slow start has been had, now sat on the couch mustering energy to sort some stuff out. Going for a celebratory meal tonight for the boy's AS results. He's certainly not a chip off the old block in that respect mercifully.

    Off to the King Power later to watch the Champions of England hopefully hand out Wenger's P45.

    Backs a little better , only hurts after prolonged periods of being sat down, Think I ll have plenty to be out off my seat about later despite the Taylor report.

    Car boot sale at the Ship in Wells really is something quite special on a Saturday Morning Stevo, You might find something " Fluted" for Pinno but it will be off a lawn mower.

    P.S Stevo only joking , don't do it! its like the shop in Royston Vasey.

    Had to dodge the craft fair at Burnham Market as well. Went down the beach at Cley in the end then drove home. Have a good one next week - if you're still there next Saturday, there's an 80's revival gig at Holkham featuring Big Country, Go West and Level 42 :)

    That's a Cracking Idea Stevo, get it patented before Tullio gets the machine shop in Vicenza knocking them out along side the corkscrews ( need something to do now the Romanians are making all the " proper stuff " )

    Will be at the gig in Holkham. I know a way in via Burnham Thorpe that Lord Coke aint got covered. And fancy getting some better value ofF the Earl of Leicester after the Kings and the Clowns of Ashburton grove did me for nearly a one'r and no bloody entertainment today.

    Easy:
    1. Tim is sneaking into an 80's gig in Norfolk because he's too tight to pay the entry fee :)
    2. The Leicester-Arsenal game was shyte.

    The first phrase you learn is 'Are you local?'

    Up here, the moment you walk into a pub, you're thrown into a pub quiz: "Who the farq are you?"

    Until now I was thinking more like the pub scene in 'American Werewolf in London'.

    Thanks for helping our less Erudite friend Stevo.

    Basically Lord Coke the Earl Of Leicester Owns Holkham Hall in Norfolk were I m going to attempt to slip the wire and re live my youth next week ( although I ve well and truly given the bloody game away now )

    And yes the Leicester Arsenal game at the King Power Stadium Yesterday was indeed Shite! and cost me £98 for me and the Father in Law ( A Leicester fan ) to attend.

    Although seeing Bellerin's challenge on Mussa , back , The Foxes were probably more robbed than me!
    Pukka Pie was only £2,80 as well, but no Bovril.
