Post 998, barking and bridges.




Blog Bs5 is close to the thousnad mark!




It's been a while since I blogged and I have been a Facebook tart for a week or so. Also my remote blogging from Iphone has stopped working.




Back to form with this one, I hope.




A week or so back I had a lovely day off with BS9 and we spent it pottering about in Clifton, a rather elegant part of the city. This is the Clifton Suspension Bridge (1864) and we wealked over it and back before having a spot of lunch in a nice sunny square nearby.


A day or so after that, we met this dog and his chatty owner. Improbably, the pooch was called Vincent!

On the sofa.

I had a nice treat today when my brother called in at BS5.

He is not long back from a cycle ride to Spain all through France but
he did have to hightail back through France in a hire car to catch a
ferry as his flight was cancelled.

Anyhow, he is back now and called in today with his doggies. This is a
post-lunch scene with doughnuts!

Train action.

With this and that, and the Easter break it seems like ages since top
train action here at Blog BS5.

Today I am having a fix! I am blogging from sunny Birmingham where I
have changed from the Edinburgh Pendolino to the Glasgow one in order
to complete a Bristol to Lancaster run. Mid-morning travel is
civilised as there are few commuters and precious few mobile phone
calls taking place, full of the tiresome bullshit-bingo Marketing
phrases!

On the road...


My other (France) brother is currently cycling from London to San Sebastian in Spain this week, via France. You can check out his progress with his mates HERE. It's a charity thing and follows their Land's End to John O'Groats last year.

Keep going, fellas!

The SPI list


My Manila brother and I have an 'SPI' list of late - this stands for 'Shit pencilled in'.

It's a to do list, if you will.

Among the articles on mine:

Paint the bathroom walls
Decorate the hall
Synch' my Iphone properly
Tax the car....but this I have just done!


Get in.
