Eyup varly, i see that Mark Cavendish has retired from racing, he was very good at bends and avoiding potholes, i hear he learnt those skills in Douglas dodging the horse poo on his bike.

Horse poo VG for roses and cheaper shovelled off the prom than bought. Therefore little left to bicycle over. Mind you at that speed he might not be able to stop before becoming a horse's arse stopper.

Can we all expect a comprehensive trip report in due course?

No, but Sir W's quite good at picking a tune why not try humming it to him?

(Perhaps not while he is at the calliope, though, every toot aggravates the Chief's condenseritis).

Just later Trusty brawler. feeling a bit woozy from dodging all the Canine excrement around town on my Bike.
My Dog has a three kilometre walk and waits till he gets home before evacuating his canine bowel.
disposed of in a proper manner.

Report, Yes.
Comprehensive, No.

Far too much time spent in the Bar after dinner discussing strategy and tactics, most of which I've forgotten.

M'Lord Varley doesn't demean himself with mopeds, he has minions for that sort of thing. No its the gold Roller for him, a personal gift from Mr Rolls and Mr Royce no less.

When the vehicle was delivered he found two golf tees in the glove box, on being advised they were to rest your balls on before driving he replied "feck me, you guys think of everything"

Tank yew I'm here all week.

Eyup Billyboy, hope i am invited, with you being 81 today it will be best not to ask too many ladies to your party as you need to get to 82, another tip is don't drink more than two pints as you will fall asleep in a corner and miss out on the cake. Hope you have a great day rgds rustytrawler.

Best wishes BB for your 81st. Well done.
Your kind invitation to the PAX Lounge is accepted. I assume that there will be the usual abundance of Coke No Sugar and Vegemite sandwiches.

BB you appear to have two birthdays every year so no need to overdo the fare. Chips for me, Roo Steaks for YM and steamed Galliard for RT.
What in the name of all that's holy is a Mini Bar? GD1 or 2 never had one, only fit for 2 star hotels.

Sir W, my apologies. I too was at a birthday party yesterday and so missed this extra set of congratulations. 81 too, no one boasting that mightily at our gathering, nonetheless weather and company excellent. Hostess rather petard hoisted as had sworn all to secrecy and told biddy-in keep day free so that he could have choice of treats for the day. He awoke hoping to steer a visit to the motor museum (Jurby) only to be told he was staying put till the cake had been cut (and the rest of us half cut).

Butchers bill so far this year is light. No fatalities amongst either racers or bike visitors. A few have come unseated but worst so far is some broken bones. Nasty car job on mountain Saturday with two in hospital. Another as yet scantily described accident delayed road closure on Sunday (first race-day). No racing yesterday - too many birthdays. Low cloud delayed start today and from the sound of things there may now have been a false start. Fingers crossed it will stay relatively bloodless.

(That is Sir Henry to you, Bahco-bonce, surely one plumber should not be so disrespectful to another?)
