Plus 9 and dry when driving in. (minus 2 yesterday)

Diamond Gait did not run at Kempton..We were not happy with her after a weekend of snow.. Instead Norman, Clare and I had lunch at The Wheatsheaf..Although I am sure Norman would have preferred Kempton, our replacement lunch was good.

We are not running First Flow at Sandown as originally planned.. Ground a big issue with the word watering not being ideal..

So we are hoping to go to Huntingdon for the Peterborough Chase and see if the extra distance will help.. if it does then it will help find other races in the future..Either way ground conditions are certainly far from ideal..Waiting is an option, but what for.. especially as Ireland have similar ground problems?

A married man George  was visiting his secret girlfriend when she requested he shave his beard.

“Oh George, I like your beard, but I would really like to see your handsome face .” She said

George replied, “My wife loves this beard, I couldn’t possibly do it, she would kill me!”

“Oh please? The girlfriend asked again, in a sexy little voice.

“Really, I can’t”, He replies. “my wife loves this beard!”

The girlfriend asks once more time and he sighs and finally gives in.

That night George crawls into bed with his wife while she was sleeping.

The wife is awakened somewhat, feels his face and says,

“Oh Michael, you shouldn’t be here, my husband will be home soon!”
