25th November 2016

Plus 4 and dry when driving in.

A rather disappointing day at Towcester. No Hugo Bevan and no winners.

A cold wind and a busy crowd braved the elements.

Our four runners did not exactly fill any coffers, although we did win a couple of best turned out awards.

My Cousin Rachel ran ok for a long way. Ascotdeux Nellerie ran better to finish 4th and I though Mikey Hamill gave him a very sensible ride; we were happy with Nellie. Chateau Robin ran well for a long way to finish 5th and Texas Forever jumped ok but was hampered and then pulled up. Not the best of days.

All yesterdays runners are fine this morning.. there will be other days..

Funny how you go through periods when it just does not go quite right for no particular reason.. That will change .

Talking change. David Bass progresses and hopes to be back in two weeks..

Bloody Black Friday. American rubbish but that has not stopped my in box being cluttered with offers..

Patricia Ruck Keene was here for a visit mid morning. Great to see her and my sister who brought her over.

Clare's smiling..as am I.. Archie home for the weekend  from his school in France today

We have a couple of runers today. Vital Evidence heads to Doncaster while Red Spinner heads to Newbury. For my thoughts please click here.

Christmas starts early.. hence Black Fiday.

A man with  a bald head and a wooden leg is invited to a Xmas fancy  dress party.
He doesn't know what to wear to hide his head and his wooden leg, so he writes to a fancy dress company to explain his problem.  A  few days later he receives a parcel with a note:

Dear  Sir,
Please find enclosed a  Pirate's outfit. The spotted handkerchief will cover your bald  head and with your wooden leg you will be just right as a Pirate.  The  man is offended that the outfit  emphasizes his disability, so he writes a letter of complaint..  A week passes and he receives another parcel and note:

Dear  Sir,
Sorry about the previous  parcel. Please find enclosed a monk's habit. The long robe will cover your wooden leg and with your bald head you will really look the part.  The  man is really incandescent with rage now, because the company has gone from emphasizing his wooden leg to drawing attention to his bald head.  So he writes a really strong letter of complaint.. A few days later he gets a very small parcel  from the company with the accompanying letter:

Dear  Sir,
Please find enclosed a  tin of Golden Syrup. We suggest you pour the tin of  Golden Syrup over your bald head, let it harden, then stick your wooden leg up your arse and go as a toffee apple.
