    Hello,

    This morning I made good use of the dry and sunny weather, as we had been told it wouldn't last. So I went out to trim the ivy around the terrace in front of my shed, as well as along the yard where the cars are parked. I also cut back some branches of the yew trees to clear the way for the lawn mower once we need to use it again (it's been so dry that all the grass has turned brown).

    After that I had lunch and a nap, did the accounting for the next bowling session, thankfully my last turn, and it will be a decade till it's my turn again.

    Then the weekly hoovering of the staircases was on the to-do list, and now I'm in the shed with a fresh pot of tea, biscuits and a newly mixed tobacco made of Old Gowrie, standard mixture and St. Bruno Flake (Germany-bought) in a ﹰParker Canadian. For much of the afternoon it's been raining as forecast, we should get some 3mm or an 8th of an inch, equalling about 300 more litres in the water tanks.

    I have never gone fishing, and only eat fish that doesn't look and taste too much like it. But I have a funny childhood memory about fish to share. We have a commercial fishing pond within walking distance, at least the distance that my maternal grandfather would walk when he was still healthy enough in the early 1980s. People can go there and do their own angling, or they can buy fish from the shop, so one day grandpa came home with a big carp, and my mother and sister got ready to prepare it. When my sister tried to cut off the fins, the dead fish started hopping over the worktop of the kitchen, and my sister screamed and ran away (she must have been in her early teens at the time, me six years younger). So my mother asked grandpa to prepare the fish, and when he cut off its head, he held its body, and the tail fin (if that's the word) banged on the worktop like mad. I think it was the last time we had carp at our house...

    Best wishes
    Markus

    Hello,

    Ready to watch England with a pot of freshly ground and brewed decaf espresso made to regular coffee strength, several tobaccos to choose, and two Peterson system pipes that will cover one half each.

    Starting soon with the new mix in a Peterson Supreme

    Best wishes

    No offence to others, but I cannot get excited about the soccer, even though I am English through-and-through. I have never liked this form of football.

    So, I'm reading and enjoying a mug of Yorkshire tea with a slab of the missus' famous lemon drizzle cake - I think she might be trying to see me off!

    This will be followed by a bowl of 2013 GH&Co Brown Flake (u/s) in a Comoy's Blue Riband:
