Friday evening

Dear owl,

I'm sure you had a good reason to be sitting in the middle of the narrow lane in the dark, but do you think you could keep a better look-out for cars? Initially I thought you were a rabbit or badger and that you would walk sideways out of the way. Imagine my surprise when you spread your wings and flew away!

Yes, I'm sure the screaching of my car's tyres scared you, and I'm glad you managed to take off inches away from my car, and your near vertical take-off was very impressive, but I would much rather not see it at such close range - well not when I'm driving a car towards you anyway.

I hope you had good hunting for the rest of the night.

Saturday

I was on the road at 6 AM, which is way too early to be up on a Saturday morning.

<rant>Could drivers please, please, please remember that the middle lane of the motorway is for overtaking cars in the slow lane. So go past whatever is in the slow lane and then, if there isn't another car or lorry you are going to overtake soon and there isn't a slip lane on to the motorway then get the f**k back into the left-hand lane. It's simple - just do it!</rant>

Had a good day at Faversham Hop Festival - we danced well, had a few minor mistakes but the dances worked well and had a lot of energy in them. I think I strained my voice shouting during them :) We even had some nice comments about the dances. I left after our last dance and headed around to my Mum's to drop off some stuff I meant to do last Sunday then went on to my flat and got my washing done.

Sunday

Relaxed in the morning with my contact lenses out to rest my eyes. Packed, went round to Mum's for a meal and chat then headed off down the motorway to Cardiff ... well Waterloo actually but every one will think of one of the other Waterloos :)

I was going to post about Katrina, but it is late so I'll do it another day.

Peace
peter

Come up to NY for the marathon and you can meet me there :) (I'll be the one at the back puffing along slowly ... I'm hoping to do it in under 5 hours)

Peace

Is that a "Hi whore Silver" and a ride off into the sunset as the masked rider ... or maybe a Hi whore silver lining by some pop group who's name has ridden off into the sunset.

I think it is the latter Hi whore silver lining by some pop group who's name has ridden off into the sunset. I like to be creative..

One of the very worst things to ever happen to me when driving was actually hitting an owl and having it take a direct hit with the front grill of my car. I, unfortunately, was picking pieces of owl out of my grill the next morning. :-(

Owls are gorgeous, we had one fly beside the car for a short time. It was broad daylight too. I know there are a few around here we rarely see them though.
