Obviously an Aubergine
I think on the whole, you'll be OK.Musings on a dull Saturday in relation to cycling and significant others.
I stopped to offer assistance to a cyclist with a broken down bike at the roadside this afternoon. He politely thanked me for stopping and said he had called his wife and she would be along very soon. As I got back on my way I realised this had been the response on two previous occasions when I'd offered assistance. This caused my thoughts to wander, as a single guy with no 'phone, it made me wonder if I should be cycling beyond walking distance from home. If I'd had a wife and 'phone, would she have come to my rescue that time I was immobilised with a front axle problem in an unpronouncable village in the Czech Republic some three weeks into a tour with no particular destination in mind? Or perhaps more importantly would I ever have been cycling in the Czech Rep if I'd had a wife?
Aye, it makes you wonder.
I dont have 'a wife' yet still seem to cope OK in these situations, however far from home.
A modicum of mechanical skill, ingenuity, and even the neck to ask for help occasionally, has carried me through many a situation whilst on the 'open road'.
Perhaps, having 'a wife' makes one go a bit soft...
Thank youI can trebuchet over some normandy-style slow-cooked pork, mashed potato, apple sauce and braised red cabbage if you want...
I got hungry first, so it was mixed roasted veg, a medley of kale, Angus chipolatas, and onion gravy
Just room for a couple of squares of dark chocolate now..
You know the stuff with the freeze dried raspberries contained therein.
