19th August 2017

Plus 12 and dry when driving in. Loads of rain again last night..No happy farmers around here trying to cut their wheat..

Terrible scenes on TV from Spain yesterday. The world is not a happy place. Life goes on and that is what we have to do.

Jockey Tom Bellamy was in for a couple of lots this morning.

Super mare Winx just gets up in Australia.. That was her 18th winning race on the trot.. Harry Bailey was there and he met my old boss Max Whitby...

The cricket or day/night Test match is going along well. England well in control.

Alistair Cook another double hundred. But it is oh so sad to watch the West Indies, who used to be the best side in the world, look so dejected, hands in pockets and frankly not motivated.. The days of Viv Richard and co long gone and now just memories of great players..

Cricket is a game that features heavily is my family and yesterday afternoon I took Archie to Hawks bats where he chose his new bat.

Imagine the fun a young boy has when it comes to choosing his bat and having it made to his liking.. Yes a very lucky boy.. A big thanks to his granny for this wonderful birthday present..

Love him, admire him or did he ruin your Saturday nights..Whatever, Bruce Forsyth was an extroadinary man and gave his life to entertaining us..

Here is another old one for the weekend..

Jane and Arlene are outside their nursing home, having a drink and a smoke, when it starts to rain. Jane pulls out a condom, cuts off the end, puts it over her ...cigarette, and continues smoking.

Arlene: What in the hell is that?

Jane: A condom. This way my cigarette doesn't get wet.

Arlene: Where did you get it?

Jane: You can get them at any pharmacy.

The next day, Arlene hobbles herself into the local pharmacy and announces to the pharmacist that she wants a box of condoms.

The pharmacist, obviously embarrassed, looks at her kind of strangely (she is, after all, over 80 years of age), but very delicately asks what size, texture, brand of condom she prefers.

'Doesn't matter Sonny, as long as it fits on a Camel.'

We have no runners this weekend.. Have a good one and see you on Monday..
