We have decided that the boat trip thing would best be left until the summer - not a bad idea. Therefore I thought we can all go ten pin bowling this saturday afternoon. Anybody whos interested, let me know by wednesday and I will book up a few lanes.
For this months activity I thought we could hire a canal party boat and go cruising for an evening around Birmingham. Obviously to make this worth while would depend on the number of people who want to go.
2 months to go until this years Tour Of France commences. Bradley has vowed to defend his victory of last year and go one further by also winning the Cycle Around Italy, something not many people ever manage to do.
Last year Bradley was ably assisted by team mate Chris Froome who remains on the team and staunchly vowed to, also win the Tour Of France.
I quite fancy going to The More Festival in Venice as the Bieannale is on at the same time, so I had a look at flights and I could go to Venice for £40 return from East Midlands, bargain I thought but then looking at accomodation I discover that it's £30 to even stay in a ten bed dorm which isn't even in Venice proper, this makes a five day stay rather costly especially if you factor in the the cost of a festival ticket. I'm looking at £350 before I've even bought an overpriced pint of beer.
This morning whilst lazing in a semi awake stuporific doze I dreamt that Nuisance my ex cat had learned how talk. To start with she could only say "Puuurrrfect" but then very quickly became a very fluent indeed. She had got herself a pet parrot and was keen to get her hands on hundreds of pet parrots which she was intending to use to construct a castle for herself.
Report of the evening for the benefit of future Joe on the occasion of his 79th Birthday.
Back in those days we mostly still used telephones and the internet to communicate so throughout the afternoon I had been receiving reports that Eileen & Sophie were in the process of missing every available method of transport from their home in Oxford ( before Global Warming so you could still live there without deep sea diving equipment ) to Birmingham. This was before flying cars had been invented so in the end they managed to get on a train.
