I have a disappointments diary this year which lists all the bad things which have happened on particular dates and messages such as " If ignorance is bliss, why do you look so sad?"
However it states that it is 30 years ago today since Shep died!
Thought I`d share that to cheer you all up.
By the way - great run out to Wymeswold yesterday in the Mog - going like the clappers after recent service.

I'll never forget him climbing Nelson's Column - scary stuff, particularly when he reached the overhang. H&S wouldn't allow it now - and neither would the BBC insurance. Spare a thought also for the cameraman, who got no recognition but had to make the climb ahead of Noakes.

I think I would burn the diary before I commit suicide.

Burn a present - with my Yorkshire leanings?!!
Anyway it makes me realise how full my glass is when that of others` is nearly empty + it`s a good laugh.

Well wait until You are 88 like Me and all We old timers talk about is what pills we take for our Blood Pressure. BTW: I take one baby Aspirin, 5MG of Lisinopril, 50MG Metoprolol, and 40MG Atorvastatin. Today My Blood Pressure was 156 64 70.

Can't wait until "Beer Time".
