Plus 13 and drizzling when driving in.. A day of welcome rain?

Tom Bellamy was in for one lot this morning.

John Webber, Andy and Richard Sheppard were here second lot to see their horses Robin The Raven and Winter Glory and see their KBRP partnership horses Subway Surf and Espoir De Romay.

Nick Cook was also here second lot to see his KBRP horses Younevercall and Balleticon

Nick brought fellow umpire Russell Warren and friend Nick Rook; Nick runs The Stags Head which is a local pub to Mat when he is home in Nottingham

Nick could well be here all day as with the forecast being what it is, he might not be needed to umpire the T20 match between Gloucestershire v Glamorgan at the Cricket Festival in Cheltenham later.

Peter and Fiona Woodhall were here third lot to see their KBRP horse Does He Know.

Graham Potts called in for his Friday vet visit..

There seems to be nothing but gloom in the world at the moment. Trump, Johnson and now Richard Flint.. Don’t mention the word that begins with B.. British Open..

As we talking about golf..

She was a cruel woman ... but fair!  

A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a £20 fell out onto the sidewalk.

Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, "Ma'am, there are £20 notes falling out of that bag.”

"Oh, really? Darn it!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me, officer.

"Well, now, not so fast," said the cop. Where did you get all that money? You didn't steal it, did you?”

"Oh, no, no", said the old lady. "You see, my back yard is right next to a Golf course.  A lot of Golfers come and pee through a knot hole in my fence, right into my flower garden. It used to really tick me off. Kills the flowers, you know.

Then I thought, why not make the best of it?”  "So, now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, O.K., buddy! Give me £20, or off it comes.”  

"Well, that seems only fair," said the cop, laughing"OK. Good luck!

"Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?”

“Not everybody pays."
