Plus 11 and raining when driving in.

We had a bad winter at the cricket and yesterdays first Test against Pakistan at Lords started in a similar vain with our Captain scratching around like one of John Disney’s chickens for runs and then he slashed away to be out.. Not a good start.. Good old Cook slightly saved the day. A full house at Lords as always for the first Test of the summer..

Talking Cook..Nick Cook in good form yesterday and Mat having showed him his horse Balleticon enjoying his holiday then went for lunch at The Wheatsheaf.

Graham Potts was in this morning to check over the new horses and see some before they go out to grass.

A meeting late morning with my yard sponsor Dodson and Horrell to discuss their feeds and on going relationship with Amie Hicks..

We have two runners today at Worcester.. Robin The Raven and Commodore Barry heads there.. one wants fast ground and one wants softer so this rain might suit one if not the other.. For my thoughts on their chances please click here.

Heading to Worcester? Take note.. IF YOU ARE USING THE M5 PLEASE TAKE THE EXIT AT JUNCTION 6 - ROAD CLOSURES IN PLACE AROUND JUNCTION 7 Expect delays and allow extra time for your journey.

May 25.. another notch on that turning wheel.. it is only a number as Mrs B reminded me..

Anna Hunt sent this over..

''Severn Trent Water this morning announced that people need to conserve water........ showers rather than baths, no hoses in the garden.''

What planet they are living on I really don't know after the amount of water that has fallen this winter! Anna

Hi, Fred, this is Ben, next door.  I’ve got a confession to make.  I’ve been riddled with guilt for a few months and have been trying to get up the courage to tell you face-to-face. 

At least I’m telling you in this text and I can’t live with myself a minute longer without you knowing about this. 

The truth is that when you’re not around I’ve been sharing your wife, day and night.  In fact, probably much more than you.  I haven’t been getting it at home recently and I know that that’s no excuse. 

The temptation was just too great. 

I can’t live with the guilt and hope you’ll accept my sincere apology and forgive me. Please suggest a fee for usage and I’ll pay you. Regards, Ben

Fred's response: feeling so angered and betrayed, Fred grabbed his gun and shot Richard, killing him. He went back home and poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa.  Fred then looked at his phone and discovered a second text message from Richard.

Second text message:

Hi, Fred.  Richard here again. Sorry about the typo on my last text. I expect you figured it out and noticed that the damned Auto-Correct had changed “wi-fi” to “wife.”  Technology, huh?  It’ll be the death of us all. Regards, Richard
