"Marinated spare ribs and spatch-cock chicken ok for you Madam?" I asked as I cracked my own beer and stacked the braai, "Bring it on boy, I'm hungry!" she replied.
The spare ribs took the hunger pains away and there was no immediate rush for the chicken, Janet prepared some garlic potatoes and we cracked another beer, damn it was good!
Any doubts I may have had about staying home instead of going for a ride were certainly cancelled out by the lunch we had, I don't think we would have had a better meal in any restaurant.
Somebody had one of those "Oh Shit!" moments in the bay this past week, this was the sight that greeted me as I was driving down past the two hotels on Friday.Not a nice thing to see, I know the owner of the boat but I haven't spoken to him lately so I don't know what happened, probably a broken mooring though. That's one of the ever present dangers of owning a yacht and one of the reasons why I have never bought one, I have done plenty of sailing as crew member on various yachts and have really enjoyed racing but I have never wanted to own one, way too much maintenance involved - I'll stick to biking.
Talking about which; do you think this babe rides this beast? I have my doubts, she looks way too petite to handle that monster, look at the size of that back tyre! And it looks like there's a whole bunch of nitrous bottles on the back too, scary stuff!
The FA Cup pool competition has suffered a bit of late, I wasn't able to meet Frank on Friday afternoon due to pressure of work and the last opportunity that we may have for 2009 will be on Thursday afternoon, Christmas Eve if I can get finished in time. After that my family will be here with us for three weeks and I will be playing against my Son-in-law who takes no prisoners, I need all the practise I can get!
