Morning folks,
Traditional slow start has been had. Now drinking coffee and getting ready to go out. Nice and sunny so a walk by the river before meeting the Mrs in town.

    Just been out back with my chopper, both hands firmly on the shaft, laying into some logs.

    Will go for a ride, once it thaws out a bit.

    No cheeky chopping for me. Just getting on the gravy train (again) for document procurement.

    Toots birthday party later.

    My toots was 6 yesterday. It's not her party it's a classmates party. How opportune ? That saved some cash.
    Don't worry, i'll learn to walk and squeak at the same time with the best of the miserable dour tight fisted local populace.
    Seems like you only get respect if you're tight, can drink 50 pints of an evening and still stand up. eat chips all day and wear a football top (of a any religious denomination of your choosing) when it's -10.

    Mine's six in May and the boy's four next month.

    I think the house next to mine's for sale. No football tops over here :wink:

    And exactly 10 years 'till you need to buy a hockey mask and a chain saw.

    Been out, got tyres changed on Strifeys car, bought replacement grommets for the pond pump/filter thingy. Supped a bucket of coffee at Costa. A few more jobs, spot of football and then it's round to next doors for a MILFtastic 40th birthday party this evening :)

    Nice end to the physio session today (other than the additional exercises he gave me) gave me a thumbs up on the progress and told me not to come back for a fortnight, must be doing something well.

    Just back from a glorious ride. I love bright,crisp winter afternoons.

    Now pondering whether or not to try out the Brooks saddle i was given by a mate a few years ago. Nowt wrong with my current saddle mind.

    What say the collective wisdom of bottom bracket?

    Which Brooks is it? Some of the better one's are pretty pricey. Mind you, i'd pay a small fortune to get my bony 4rse comfy on a saddle.
    Chuck it on and suck it and see (not literally or you might be mistaken for a local).

    Why change to a saddle renowned for taking time to break in if you are happy?
    Unless you enjoy that kind of thing.

    Just to see what the fuss is all about. It was free, so not that bothered. If it turns out to be a pain in the backside, I know that I can go back to a comfy one.

    It's a Team Pro, like this one

    To be honest, I've never had an uncomfy saddle, apart from the charge spoon, which I think I sold on to someone on here.

    Perhaps it puts him in an abusive mood. We've gone full circle.

    Bizarrely I tried not to be abusive in this thread, would have been too easy.
    To show how personal saddles are I get on quite well with my Charge Spoon, but have several I didn't get on with. Maybe Mr H would like them. Never tried a Brooks. Done fancy spending that much to find I don't like it.

    Spent some of my tax rebate on a new ski jacket as the other one was knackered. Time for a bit of Thai take away before the neighbours party :)

    annoyingly i ended up owing the thieving bastards money again, wouldn't be so bad but i really resent funding fuckıng parasite brexit voters, they should pay their own way not leech off london

    tried the centurion lounge at dfw, brekkie ok but ffs only one glass of real bubbly per cardmember, one!!! i had to settle for domestic chandon thereafter, which actually was ok

    currently in the delta lounge at atl, meh, staying non-alcoholic until onboard and the bubbly resumes

    i hear uk is a bit nippy, still hoping to go for a ride on return, seems ages

    ffs guy at the next table is crunching icecubes from his drink

    i have zero tolerance for people who make slurping/crunching/snorting noises during food/drink consumption, they should be taken out and shot, in the face, slowly

    As this place is the home of pedantry I feel I should point out that bullets are pretty ineffective when travelling slowly.
    Bloody freezing here, get the plane to head south. Going to watch the boy playing rugby tomorrow, standing around in a cold field isn't ideal. I'm going to cycle there but will have to carry a warm coat for standing around.
