    Grey and a bit damp here. Had to set the alarm to wake me for the Friday Fry Up ride - that's just a name, we dumped the breakfast a long time ago.

    Pushed myself to get up but it will be great on the bike. :bicycle:

    Blimey memories of my parents first TV, and the Billy Cotton Band Show on Saturday nights.

    Morning all up a bit early this morning to watch this come through New Barnet on it's way to York. 20190111_092421.jpg
    60103 the Flying Scotsman.
    Now back home drinking tea. Going over the fields with the dog shortly. Followed by a trip to the chiropractic for a service and then meeting my son for a burrito and a beer or three at lunchtime.
    I have a meeting of the escape committee this evening for more ale and a curry afterwards. Life is sweet.

    Morning all.
    I was up at 06.30 today then read that post about imagining Drago's Y fronts. It made me ill and I had to go back to bed.
    I think its still Friday although its possible I blacked out for 24 hours.
    Weather seems pleasant.
    Fresh fruit and yogurt for breckie then some exercises...... the bike, weights then situps.
    And then.........I have no idea. Might just have a really chill day

    Earliest I've been up this week - 9 o'clock. Slept right through Mrs. jg's alarm at 6 o'clock.

    Did 25 miles on the bike before breakfast and bumped into an old club mate. Had a blether about who's doing what to who these days and who's still getting out on the bike. Glad to hear that all the old gits who were riding when I was a club member are still going strong.

    Going to fit some security lights for the in laws as they are convinced we are being engulfed by a massive crime wave. They don't get out now and their world view is formed by lurid headlines in the local rag. Apparently someone five streets away had their shed broken into last week - a sure sign that society is crumbling.

    Then it's off down to Elland Road to see Leeds arrest their traditional Christmas slump by beating Derby County. Can't wait.

    What type of coffee do you drink?
    I used to drink just the occasional one as I dont really enjoy granules. Since buying a pod machine I have a mug most mornings.....its very yummy :smile:

    Right, my weapons are shiny and oiled. Despite watching Red Dawn 141 times there are no signs of any Commies wanting to invade.

    Off to walk Muttley again, the Search and rescue training tonight.
