Plus 10 and dry when driving in. A very different feel about todays weather.

There is a very different feel about this country this morning after the terrible scenes in London on Saturday night. What shocking images on TV. Thoughts for families and those involved.

Thoughts for Dandy Nicholls family. Dandy 'the sprint king' died aged 61 yesterday and again thoughts for his family.

Yes a shocking weekend but life carries on as was saw last night in Manchester. I had just about heard of Ariana Grande two weeks ago but that changed last night. Her concert was brilliant..she is some strong young lady having watched her last night.

My Sunday was spent in Patshull near Wolverhampton celebrating Marek Kwiatowski’s birthday and impending move down under. I did well to get away in one piece..

Monday morning . Matt back from 2 weeks holiday which means that Clare And I can slip away for 4 days. So Kerry is left in charge of the blog.

Sam Burton and  Alfie Martindale rode out this morning.. Two budding amateurs?

Horses out in the field don’t like this weather and start moving around and playing.. Hence two returned from the fields with cuts…Why is it that horses always seem to get in more trouble when out at grass than when in their stable?

We have one runner this afternoon at Newton Abbot. Such A Legend and David Bass team up and for my thoughts on their chances please click here.

A nice clean one before I go away..

An old blind cowboy strolls into a bar one day. Without knowing it, he has actually entered an all-girl biker bar by mistake.

He wanders over to a bar stool and asks the bartender for a shot of Jack Daniels.

He sits there for a while, then calls out to the bartender. “Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?”

At that point the entire bar falls deadly silent.

In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says, “Before you tell that joke, cowboy, I think it is only fair, given that you are blind, that you should know five things:

1. The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat.

2. The bouncer is a blonde girl with a club.

3. I’m a 6-foot tall, 175-pound blonde woman with a black belt in Karate.

4. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weight lifter.

5. The lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler.

Now, think about it seriously, cowboy… Do you still wanna tell that blonde joke?”

The blind cowboy thinks for a second, shakes his head and mutters,

“No… Not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.”
