TUESDAY 14th August
A very busy day and it was pleasantly warm and quite humid. By some quirk of nature we did not get any rain ehilst Lakeside and Windermere were subject to a torrential downpour! Ulverston is blessed! The Jag was due for it's MOT and the job was done by Mike at Greenodd Garage. It passed of course! Lovely , lovely car! It's such a pleasure to drive. I love everything about it. Pehaps not so keen on the MPG ( 24mpg ) but that is a minor consideration considering all it's other advantages. UC was teriffic last night. The Cambridge team were electric! I risk a forecast that they will be serious contenders for the title. I wonder if Corals are offering odds?
MONDAY 13th August
Another lovely weekend. Had plenty to do on Saturday morning not finishing work till about 2. Then watched some racing on tv and stayed in for the evening watching Dad's Army and then had a thorough giggle by watching Fawlty Towers fro the umteenth time. Hada good lie-in on Sunday till about 10 then up and apout. The Weather Forecast was not good which was a pity as a bowling match has been arranged. I got there as arranged for 3 and 20 or so otehrs also showed up. We had a great time but go rained off when the thunderstorm started at about 4.30!! Great fun nonetheless. Cocktials @ 5 v Others!
FRIDAY 10th August
Thusday was a lovely day in Ulverston with it being Market Day and with lots of good folk milling about. Something really special about it. Of course there are lots lots of Buddhist monks still about as there is a big convention at Conishead Priory. So its a very cosmopolitan town right now. It was the Farmers Quiz and naturally some of the Best Team Names were Boris related, but the Best Team Name was; " I've just ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon. Let's see what comes first". The Rollover was WON! Yes! £162.00 won by Ferus Cassidy who correctly told me the year that Frank Sinatra died. A very good win!
