Hurricane Butler!


My tremendously good friend Seamus has just blown in, through and back out of Bristol in about two hours flat!

I was out for a run at 07.10 and missed a call; he and Stapes had just landed in Bristol on the way home from Turkey where they had been for a week. I picked the lads up at Temple Meads and inevitably had to park up while Seamus conducted a deal involving large amounts of folding. We all went for breakfast where the food and the coffee were on form but much more so the crew running the show; we'll be back there, I suspect.

Back to my house to pick up all sorts of gear that Seamus had bought before he went away and then a dash to the other side of Bristol to catch his train and ferry to Ireland, a trip I hope to replicate in the next ten days.

Got home, parked up and Dave who lives at no 100 and is married to a foxy Dutch woman asked me if I could knock on at his house to help him wheel a recently purchased piano down the street.

It's only Monday morning!

Oh dear! Now I feel a right Charlie. Just noticed the photo on your profile, enlarged and of course it is Winnie.

Good job FFF didn't get all my 'stupid' genes.

Hi Moannie, it's Winsto' as done by Banksy, a Bristol chap whose work I like!

Hope you are (both) well this Monday morning?

Still reeling from the news out of Tottenham. Quite a surprise at least for those of us over here. I will wonder about Spurs Karma though after seemingly swiping a manager from another team.

And a good manager it is too, Scargosun - even though they are a team of the second rate!

Now you've taken up piano moving?
Sheesh! ;o)

Sounds like it was all a lot of fun.

If you go to Ireland, I want to see photos... that's one place I haven't wandered to yet.

Scarlett: Check out some posts Mid June tracking back from 'On the Water' - pics and vids in a couple of posts around there; rest assured plenty of pics if I visit again.
