Morning :? :( . For some stupid reason I'm getting ready for work as a colleague has been taken ill. Just as well I'm all packed and ready to go for tomorrow,s. C2C adventure. Will be missing young oxo,s cup final match later today :evil: hopefully they will win again this season. Upside is I get a big pork based breakfast as consolation for turning in at short notice and double time. Enjoy your day peeps. PS H that beef looked tasty and black coffee all the way, cappuccino is preferable to a macchiato. Double or triple espresso is the way forward.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    The beef looked very rare.
    Yeugh.

    Very dull here again. Off swimming. Update later.
    Hilly TT in the Giro today. That'll sort the men from the boys.

    Laters.

    .

    :D

    Would have been criminal to serve it any other way. You folk who have spent time in Africa have an aversion to rare meat, which is understandable.

    A bit of wandering. Teatime flight, hoping for no delays.

    Its good to have rare beef once in a while, like after going to stay with friends who are vegetarian. This is despite me once getting a bad dose of the trots from a steak tartare in Paris many moons ago.

    Chilling with Muttley and supping a coffee. Some jobs later then pack for my little Madrid work jolly.

    Morning folks,
    Wife still away so more bike fettling, just lashing it up for the time being and looking at frames in the background.
    That beef of H³ looked utterly lush, reminded me of this:

    Just back from my race. Was up at 5 worshipping the the porcelain so didn't do that well, although I think the weight loss made up for it a little :cry:

    The GF was supposed to be getting the train to meet me afterwards, but somehow managed to miss it despite having 90 mins to get to the station (It's 30 mins walk, 10 min drive).

    Well done Thistle. Pinno a well cooked steak should have just stopped mooing
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • veronese68veronese68 Posts: 24,662 Lives Here
    Quite right Oxo. And again well done Thistle, unlike a steak. Is it wrong for this bone idle barsteward to tell TLW he should MTFU?

    Good vet could have that back on its feet.

    that looks lovely but does the question of - based on decor and other diners - whether that picture was taken in 1976.

    This is true, the man’s a fool. Should we hashtag him?

    Lounge, bubbly, hanging about. Smelling like a tart's boudoir after mrs H3 doused me in pricey fragrance.

    She's trying to tell you something.

    Are you going to join the mile high club on the way back?

    better than smelling like Ugo the Unwashed.....

    Old Spice or Brut 33?

    The MFs always get a quick spray of something as they go through duty - generally pot luck based on the colour of the bottle.

    No mile high on a skanky sweaty flight. I had Anna Netrebko soothing me on my noise cancellers. Her rendition of Barcarolle with Elina Garanca is quite exquisite.

    It was Tom Ford's Oud Tobacco. EUR 200 to smell like old holborn, though the dry down was very acceptable. The day I spend EUR 200 on fragrance though, is when all the jamon, queso, vino, hookers and blow have run out.
