Plus 17 and dry when driving in.

Not as hot as expected yesterday although the cool of the garden was welcome when lunching with Phil Andrews and Stuart and Luce Ballantyne at our local The Frogmill..

I mentioned yesterday that Aiden Murphy and I were not planning to attend the Goffs Landrover sales.. Now the Irish Goverment have said that unless you have travelled from a 'green list' country or have quarantined in Ireland for 14 days prior to the auction you can't attend. That sorts that in one!.. Seriously bad news for all those selling and the two sales companies..

Moving on to today..

David Bass, Chester Williams and Ciaran Gething were all in this morning.. We worked a few and jumped Mon Palois, Doctor Haze, Thibault, Diamond Gait, Fubar, El Presente, Station Master, Rhosneigr, Sadlermor and Drumreagh.

Stewart Wright's son Jack and daughter Alice were here third lot to see Stewarts KBRP horse Dansant Express.

Debbie and Tina Hanson were also her to see their KBRP horse Shinobi.

We have one runner over the weekend at Uttoxeter tonight. Yeavering Belle heads there and for my thoughts on her chances please click here.

Are you looking for a 2 horsebox for the winter? If so please give me ring as we are selling my trusty Theault. A lovely horsebox which has done 140k miles and regularly serviced and well maintained.. Only for sale as my new one will arrived something in September.

I always buy a new horsebox when the last one is 3 years old and then that becomes my second box..

Murphy showed up at Mass one Sunday and the priest almost fell down when he saw him.  He'd never been to church in his life.

After Mass, the priest caught up with him and said, "Murphy, I am so glad ya decided to come to Mass. What  made ya come?"

Murphy said, "I got to be honest with you Father, a while back, I misplaced me hat and I really, really love that hat.  I know that  McGlynn had a hat just like mine and I knew he came to church every Sunday.  I also knew that he had to take off his hat during Mass and figured he would leave it in the back of the church.   So, I was going to leave after Communion and steal McGlynn's hat."

The priest said, "Well, Murphy, I notice that ya didn't steal McGlynn's hat.  What changed your mind?"

Murphy replied, "Well, after I heard your sermon on the 10 Commandments I decided that I didn't need to steal McGlynn's hat after  all."

With a tear in his eye the priest gave Murphy a big smile and said, "After I talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' ya decided you would rather  do without your hat than burn in hell, hey?"

Murphy slowly shook his head. "No, Father, after ya talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' I remembered where I left me hat."

Have a good weekend and see you on Monday.
