Didnae make it out tonight. My lower left leg and ankle have stopped working and have swollen to twice their normal size and I have run out of skin- even thinking about waking to the fridge for another beer hurts. I think its a bad reaction to an insect bite but Dr Drew thinks its DVT and I will be dead by sunrise.

Oh well, shit happens. If Drew is right and I am on borrowed time I bequest my collection of bikes to clan MacRetro. Just one condition, after thrashing the living daylights out of them, they are all cleaned and polished back to perfection and tucked up in a warm garage with a fine single malt as a nightcap.
Oh-oh, I feel the delerium coming on.

So long my friends.

Si

Just read it :shock: we have a word for that type of fella up here "headtheball" if you are in the lounge or "f@ckwit" if your in the bar! I had to stifle a laugh when his other personality joined up just to agree with himself :lol:

you did well, I tend to revert to the " ah f@ck off mate" school of debate, a little known philosophical school started just after the stoics dispanded in Greece :roll:
