31st August 2018

Plus 7 and dry when driving in.

The last day of August and the few days of summer?

It is for Archie who heads back to school over the weekend.

Cricket has played a huge part of his summer which for me has been special to watch. We were all young once and this summers memories will be with him for ever..

I am sure in 20 years time they will be remember the heatwave of 2018, but I wonder where the world be by then?

It is all about family life and with my daughter Pandora getting married to James Lovett in just over 3 weeks time, and my owners open day the weekend before September is going to be a busy month. 

Clare and I are meeting up in Cirencester tonight with the happy couple to meet James’s parents, who are over from New Zealand.

Cricket, well the 4th Test certainly has been interesting to watch.

Another batting collapse by England and then youth takes over in the shape of 20 year old Sam Curran, who saved the day and some of our embarrassment.. The TV cameras now get so close to the players that they fill the screen.. The concentration on young Sam's face says it all..

Anyway we will move on.. No runners today for us and in fact we wont until probably Perth on September 10

A vet in later as normal .

Getting a Hairdryer Through Customs.

An attractive young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the Priest beside her, 'Father, may I ask a favour?'

'Of course child. What may I do for you?'

'Well, I bought my mother an expensive hair dryer for her birthday. It is unopened but well over the Customs limits and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there any way you could carry it through customs for me? Hide it under your robes perhaps?'

'I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you, I will not lie.'

'With your honest face, Father, no one will question you.'

When they got to Customs, she let the priest go first.

The official asked, 'Father, do you have anything to declare?'

'From the top of my head down to my waist I have nothing to declare.'

The official thought this answer strange, so asked, 'And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?'

'I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused.'

Roaring with laughter, the official said, 'Go ahead, Father. Next please!'
