How's your day?

The early ladies cycles had strings threaded around the rear mudguard down to a bracket near the wheel hub to stop the long skirts being pulled into the rear wheel, you can still get the clear plastic skirt protectors to fit rear muguards,

A wee Scottish boy goes into a cake shop and says to the baker ‘is that a cake in the window or a meringue?’ ‘You’re right’ says the baker, ‘it’s a cake’.

BK, try saying 'a meringue' out loud in a sort-of of Scottish accent.   It's a question...

To my wine addled brain, this was amazing ...

Was watching “Bosch”earlier on Amazon, based on novels by one of our favourite authors, Michael Connolly. Mentioned to the missus that another author I like, James Lee Burke, has a main character who has an adopted daughter called Alafair. Burke himself has a daughter called Alafair who is also a novelist.

10 minutes later 2 characters in Bosch, meet in a cafe. One has a book and you can see from the cover that it is by ...... Alafair Burke!!

Oo-er, spooky! Wonder what the odds are? Too late to buy a lottery ticket!

Very strange. I've looked on Prime video and can find Bosch ( thought it was just a film didn't realise it was a series) and started to put it on my list to watch another time. Apparently it isn't available here. I was searching on ipad. Looked on laptop and its available. Its going to take me a long long time to watch them. Hope they are good.

Took the bike out for a spin this morning and headed through Melton Mowbray. Big mistake, there were crews surface gritting from the Grantham Rd with tail-backs at rolling traffic lights. Loads of bikers but most taking it very easy. One muppet trying to overtake too fast and came down and scrawked his pride and joy, no injury just hurt pride, you can't believe some folk.

 

Clouds of dust everywhere, not good news for quite a few in the opposite tail-back. Classics, at least half a dozen Rover P4s and some Triumphs all polished up lovely, getting caked. I bet they were spitting, passed more heading towards Melton as I rode through, must be a show somewhere. Some folk won't be happy.:(

Reminds me of the time I was driving over the Tomintoul Pass in teh Cirngorms and I caught up with a string of cars all doing around 20MPH behind a caravan. I had been in the mountains all day and just wanted to get home so, knowing the road well I realised that if I didn't get past right now I would be stuck on a series of bends for the next umpteen miles. So, off I went haring past them all, only to find that fresh road chippings had been laid and that the leader was going slow to avoid sliding off into the valley below!. A few slurring slides and I was back in control but with a rather big dent in my pride.  However, I was past the mobile road block and saved at least half an hour on my journey.

We like them, Nonna. Only thing is, each series seems to be an amalgamation of 2 or 3 novels so there’s a lot going on and it’s sometimes hard to keep track.

The novels are excellent - in my opinion (and I’m told I’m hard to please!)
