    Morning all fellow retirees. Another sunny day here in Menaggio. Today we get the ferry back to Como. Others that are going to the wedding will be meeting up later on for drinks and frivolity this afternoon and evening.

    Morning all, the garden looks like it had a good drink last night, no I do not mean it looks like it has a hangover.

    Good Morning world. :hello: I'm fed up. Sleep has deserted me and I've been back to the bad old days for at least 2-3 weeks now, probably more. Been awake, reading, dozing, etc. since 3.30! :angry::sad:

    This morning I'm going to a spin class. A friend is in the process of becoming an RPM instructor. Today she will be making a video of her instructing a class which is then submitted to the examiners to decide whether or not she qualifies. As she can't take a paid for RPM class until she is qualified favours have been called in from cycle club members to come along and be the class. Should be fun.

    Morning all. Early start this morning, Mrs GM is treating me to a surprise weekend somewhere in sunny Wales. Best bit she said I can bring the bike!

    Morning folks. Lots of rain last night I see.

    Not a lot to report. Grandson went to one of his friends last night as our road was closed for road works. Both his and I will take quite a while to get used to him being mobile now :laugh: :hello:

    Good morning folks, bright and breezy here this morning, we had some serous rain last night, should do the garden good. I'm better than I was yesterday, back and hips quite sore though.

    I have been a busy boy. Out by 06.30 chasing/catching fish and emptying the pond. It approx 12'x6'x3'6" deep and it was hard work.
    Still about 9" of water left so I need to slit the membrane and let it gradually drain.
    I put a water lilly in years ago and the root system is unbelievable. I will have to get a saw to it and take it apart bit by bit.
    Its going to take days......then it all needs refilling with aggregate stuff.
    No cycling for me for a while :blush:
