Picture Pages

Had a nice weekend. No rowing, which is good, as I needed a weekend to let my body recover. I've got 3 major races in the next 4 weeks, culminating in Women's Henley Regatta at the end of June, so that was the last bit of respite for a while. The calm before the storm, if you will.

I watched Pirate play cricket instead. It was good. He won his matches on Saturday and Sunday with sufficient ease that it was actually pretty boring to watch. So I don't have much by way of exciting things to write. So here are some pictures instead:

What were you doing in Clevedon? That's where my parents live!

Nice pics BTW.

It's where my chiropractor is. I cycle there from Bristol every fortnight.

Ta.

Don't be so modest. Tell the world that you played in an exciting cricket match on Saturday.

completely unrelated, I found a chaucer comic and had to share it with you! http://www.katebeaton.com/Site/History_Project_files/chaucer.jpg
it made me giggle.

Annie: Thanks! (I was especially pleased with that one.)

Val: it's not all like that, trust me. I just don't take photos of the 13 miles of B-road tarmac!

Dave: it was, indeed, an exciting match! though i can't take credit for the victory.

Oread: That is just all kinds of awesome. Thank you SO MUCH for the link!

Beautiful scenery..I guess that all that bloody rain is worth it because it certainly makes the vegetation happy.

You said that you didn't have anything exciting to write about so here are some pictures instead..
I am concerned that a dangerous precedent may be set and other Bloggers will start waiting until they have something exciting to write about...
part of the charm of the blogosphere is that sometimes the 'filler' posts end up being the most entertaining and revealing...
most of us are doomed if we started worrying about whether our scribblings were exhorting, comforting or interesting...
HA!

Your 'stuff' is always, always, head and shoulders above most of the material that I read but thanks for the lovely images...I am so thrilled to be experiencing Spring after that last Winter.

Global warming my ass.

I'm glad to know that the planet is keeping your posterior a comfortable temperature, Donn.

And thank you for the compliment!
