    Football shirts stretched over an over ripe beer belly. And don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against beer bellies

    I Hate.....

    Can I get a half of lager ? can I pay on a card ? Heard in the Woods End. Changed his mind 3 times whilst we patiently queued behind him. Wrong on so many levels.

    Why do people have to turn around before they say something ?

    Oh eck, I used to like his posts, seems like quite a while ago. Spoke to him once, we passed on the river, he was heading for Geldeston, seemed very keen to get to the pub. Life is short, drink it whilst its fizzy !

    Well done Doug ! Look forward to seeing it on the water, good time to get it under the bridge at the moment. Hopefully our new boat will also be attending.

    Moorings During The Busy Months

    We invariably arrive back at our home mooring to find it populated by fishermen, I always approach in the same manner. Stop mid river, turn the engine off, and politely ask if they will move whilst we go up river and turn around.Very rarely do they move without protesting, "why can't you put it further down ? ", "why can't you fish further down, you lazy b------ ?" is what I would like to say, but usually have to explain that unlike them, we pay a lot of money every year for that bit of river bank. I imagine that a percentage of my mooring fee,also pays to clear up the rubbish they invariably leave behind ! Sorry, that nearly turned into a rant.

    Anyone For Hickling?

    We went through Sunday 5pm, about 6'7", reckon we could have got through one of the smaller arches either side.

    So, sat on my lovely wooden boat looking at a glass of malt whisky about the age that I learnt to drive, I know how wonderfully fortunate I am. The fact is ,to get RT to Beccles needs a fair bit of graft. I for one am up for another go, and feel sure that one or two that experienced the first weekend are feeling the same. So Doug , What’s the chance ? Cant believe as a self employed old grump, I am offering my somewhat restricted talents for free. must be something in the Norfolk water ( read beer )
