Joan wanted to go into Lancaster so I said I would take her. Grid lock in Lancaster due to a car accident. Road closed . Just managed to get out if traffic and get back home. Still spent over an hour stuck on the oneway system. Joan never did get into town
Bad luck Steve but look on the bright very little as spent.
I'm having lunch tomorrow with Vanita's three female cousins and one of their husbands.
Steve brought me a near new Barbour jacket he had picked up for £30 in a charity shop. New they are £150. It's lightweight so will come in for the Summer.
Off to visit dad later. It is always difficult to know what is going on. Dad tells you one thing and my brothers tell me different. He phoned just me to sat he was coming home but no idea if it is true or not.
Broadband changeover day today so I have done all the connections just waiting for it to be switched over from Plusnet to Nowtv.
I have unlimited data on my phone so I have set that up as my hotspot to use my tablet.
Went upto Drumlanrig Castle beats on the river this morning for the official opening of the salmon season on the Nith where they toasted the river with a bottle of Glenmorangie! Seems a bit ironic that its Drumlanrigs turn to host the event the year they make their river manager redundant! Doesn’t show a lot of faith in the river!
It's Ash Wednesday the start of Lent. People keep asking me what am I giving for Lent,my reply is, "Cigarettes, whisky and wild wild women". The vicar looked shocked at my reply. The guy hasn't got a sense of humour.
Some of Vanita's friends came round this afternoon for a nosy at Black Knight castle. I think they were suitably impressed.
Yesterday I was talking with Vanita's cousin's husband. They now live in Spain. It only costs £8 for a fresh water fishing license and you can fish anywhere. He fishes for carp in a reservoir nearby using sweetcorn and does well.
