Plus 15 and dry when driving in.. rain around later.

I did the weekly horse/owner videos last night while walking round evening stables..A change of view from when they are normally taken on Saturday.

Supper last night with an old mate Preston Rabl..Sarah, Preston, Clare and I all met up in the New Inn.. I have not been there since it was refurbished.. excellent evening in great company. A day too early for my favourtite bird..

David Bass was in this morning to ride out..

David is still smarting over the fact that he failed to make the final 15 for this years Strictly Come Dancing.. I don't believe racing has had a representative since Richard Dunwoody..

Joe Golding was here third lot to see his KBRS horse Lets Go Amigo.

The mornings exercise finished early so that Mat and all my team could glue themselves to the TV screen and watch the Lionesses play their vital must win match..

An Irishman was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his wife, who was looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she’d like as a gift.

“I’d like to be eight again,” she replied, still looking in the mirror.

On the morning of her birthday, he rose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her to Adventure World theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Roller Coaster, everything there was.

Five hours later, they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling, and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a McDonald’s, where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake.

Then it was off to a movie, with popcorn, a soda pop, and her favourite candy, M&Ms. What a fabulous adventure!

Finally, she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed, exhausted.

He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, "Well, dear, what was it like being eight again?"

Her eyes slowly opened, and her expression suddenly changed.

"I meant my dress size, you idiot!!!!"

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong..

Have a good one and see you on Monday..
