It was plus 1 and cold for the time of year! There was quite a frost last night..

Weather wise it was not much fun yesterday. A cold bitter wind..

Here I was yesterday morning thinking that this coming Friday was going to be a red letter day.

All last week the racing gurus reckoned that Flat Racing was going to start on Friday.. Something to look forward to..

But if I did not have a runner then I had the chance to go fishing on my time share beat on the Wye at Bigsweir..

But Boris has put the kibosh on an early return to Flat  Racing. Now it will start in June .. and that all depends on the large letter R

I have not been fishing anywhere this year for obvious reasons, but it is my week on Friday so I was really looking forward to being allowed to go fishing..NO chance mate.. The Bigsweir beat on the Wye is in Wales!! Their rules are not like Boris’s…

It was a bit of a treat to watch some jump racing yesterday on Sky Sports Racing  from Compiegne in France. The ground looked similar to what we raced on all last winter.. Today it is flat racing from France..Grass and all weather.

Did you manage to put names to yesterday sporting picture.. They were.. Jim Laker, Rod Laver, Bob Willis, Barry John, Serge Blanco, Johan Cruyff, Godfrey Evans, Bobby George, Katarina Witt, Franz Beckenbauer, Pat Jennings and Lester Piggott.

There is another picture today.. Keep guessing..

John Hickman sent over his vet report

My urologist's office called the other day and explained that my scheduled appointment would now be done over the phone due to the corona-virus.
One hour before the scheduled teleconference, I was instructed (via email) to administer my own urine test.
I was advised to simply go outside and pee in the back garden and observe:-

If ants gather: DIABETES.

If you pee on your feet: PROSTATE

If it smells like barbecue: CHOLESTEROL

If your wrist hurts when you shake it: OSTEOARTHRITIS

If you return to your house with your "hero" still outside your pants: ALZHEIMER

It's as simple as that, folks  - well for men at least !

I think for the girls you could add -If you topple over - PARALYTIC
