It’s good to hear from you, Bristol Rob, and to know that you are continuing to take daily exercise. I have walked for at least twenty minutes every day this year so far and shall continue to do so until the grown-ups forbid even that innocent practice. We have a large common within minutes of home and I go there most days. The trouble is that one encounters hordes of loud-mouthed dog walkers, who gather in clusters (against all medical advice) and shout fatuous remarks at each other, such as “Isn’t he lovely?”. Which in almost every case the snappy, ugly little brute manifestly isn’t. As they (the dogs, not the owners) crudely sniff at one’s shoes, their chief function appears to be to impede the briskness of one’s walk, rather undermining its purpose. I know there are some on this site who are dog lovers (sorry, Bagpuss). In case anybody hasn’t guessed, I am not among them.

I respect Bobstan’s recipe for positivity and he has probably already guessed that it is enthusiastically reciprocated. Incidentally, with diminishing opportunities to sit on Gimblett’s Hill this season, what is going to happen to Bob’s tan?
