Visiting a friend again to check emails...you tell people they'll have to phone or write, yet they still send messages online!!
A phoneline will cost us about £1 a day...for the massive 4.5 to 8 Mbs....but at least it will be worth it, when we can afford it!!! So for now we'll carry on with occasional visits.
I really miss blogging, sharing thoughts and images, contacting friends all around the world.
Spring has at last Sprung here in Ayrshire, but the breeze...and sometimes strong wind...is still on the cold side.
We ventured to Yorkshire last Monday...after two hours driving in the rain The Pirate phoned a friend near Darlington...where it was nice and sunny! We left the rain behind after Appleby and Barnard Castle and had a day's grass track racing at Richmond until 4pm when the rain caught up with us again.
It was my first effort at racing on grass...it is very unforgiving, strength sapping, hard work but also fun! A very good way to get fit for racing on a wooden track.
I first went to watch the grass track racing at Richmond in 1957, when we lived above a bike shop on the A1 in the middle of Darlington.
I saw Reg Harris racing, but what I remember vividly was seeing the sun and moon in the same sky!!
The next time was last year, to help the Pirate race there. Then we had a bit of all sorts of weather, including a snow shower!!
