Plus 11 and dry when driving in.

The Ladies final on Saturday was won by a non seeded player in Marketa Vondrousova and she is going to celebrate by having another tattoo!!

Yesterday’s Mens Final was about the best I have ever watched.. 5 hours of tension and a great result for tennis with a 20 year old new star Carlos Alcaraz.. Frankly watching the first set I thought it would be all over with the hour!.. Stage fright or in awe of his opponent..A new generation of star players.. Carlos is only 20.

But at 17 and three years younger the Boy Finals was won by a Brit in Henry Searle.. The first time for 61 odd years.

It was a great two weeks of sport and now this week (starting on Wednesday) we have the fourth Ashes Test to look forward to at Old Trafford...... Who will England pick?

Talking Ashes.. The Ladies Australian Team kept hold of their earn.. Exciting match it was but Australia beat the English Ladies..

Saturday was a tough day for Norman Carter as his horse Astro King was beaten by the shortest of noses possible in Saturdays John Smith Cup at York..

Jane Birkin has died..Je t’aime...

Monday morning and some very fresh horses.

Mark and Rachel Burt were here third lot to see their KBRS horse Isle Of Gold.

One day a husband was chiding his beautiful blonde wife about leaving her keys in the ignition of her car.

“If I take them out of the car I lose them,” she reasoned.

“Yes dear, but what if someone steals your car?” the husband countered.

“Oh that’s okay,” the wife chirped happily, “I keep a spare key in the glove box!”

To finish.. Happy birthdays to Laura Ruck Keene and Marcus Armytage..
