Plus 4 and dry when driving in.

It was certainly wet here yesterday. Rained virtually all day..

My highlight of the day was a trip to Oxford to watch Archie play in a cricket match..reduced to 25 over due to rain.. Set 159 to win, his team won with 4 overs to spare.. great cricket and a proud Dad..Archie was caught behind for 55.. his first 50 for the first X1..A winning Captain..

Moving on to today..

Gary Tardi was here mid morning to see his horse Little Chunk.. His other horse Kilfilum Cross has gone off on his summer holidays with Timmy Murphy just up the road.

John Stanley was here late morning to see his horse Bandon Roc.. BR was our last winner of last season and we discussed plans for the new one now that he has gone up a further 4 pounds to 119 for winning last week at Towcester.. his 4th hurdle race on the trot.. discussions took place in The New Inn At Coln..

Badminton Horse Trials started yesterday.. The biggest sporting event in the UK.. crowd wise..

Keith Francis sent this one over..

An Alabama pastor said to his congregation, "Someone in this congregation has spread a rumour that I belong to the Ku Klux Klan.

This is a horrible lie and one which a Christian community cannot tolerate. I am embarrassed and do not intend to accept this.

Now, I want the party who said this to stand and ask forgiveness from God and this Christian family."

No one moved. The preacher continued, "Do you have the nerve to face me and admit this is a falsehood? Remember, you will be forgiven and in your heart you will feel glory.

Now stand and confess your transgression."

Again, all was quiet.

Then, slowly, a drop-dead gorgeous blonde with a body that would stop a runaway train rose from the third pew. Her head was bowed and her voice quivered as she spoke,

"Reverend there has been a terrible misunderstanding. I never said you were a member of the Ku Klux Klan.  I simply told a couple of my friends that you were a wizard under the sheets."

The preacher fell to his knees, his wife fainted, and the congregation roared.

Life is Short, Smile While You still have Teeth.

Give me an Amen Brother!!!
