Off to Florence for final excursion of the year. :cool:

 :cool:

Nice, hope you have a good time and aren't too affected by the storm after-effects.



PS say hello to Florence for me if you bump into her.

As per usual, caught a flight delay but that is alright. :D

And thanks, both.

Only spotted one other cyclist in the forest earlier this evening; no MAMILs so it must now be properly Autumn.  :bowler:

Doing vey little of any outdoors stuff at the moment; next week's 'highlight' looks to be limited to a train journey to Warminster in Wiltshire.  :lol:

My outdoor stuff lately is pretty mundane. Lots of yard work raking leaves or more often mowing them up this time of year but I've been getting a good deal of exercise doing that. I also walk some, which I enjoy.

In the spirit of my newfound englishness...took a ramble around the English countryside on a nice, sunny afternoon.  Lots of nice public footpaths within range of the house.

Welcome to our quaint country, that's in the precess of breaking apart.

Oh and you'll need one of these  :bowler: when you go fully native like Garbon has.  :P

Delayed coming home yesterday by a 'herd' of donkeys walking calmly over a ford.   :bowler:

Unusual to see ten of them together, normally I only see solitary or small family groups of two to four.

Wild donkeys? in England?

What a country.

What's a ford? (Googling only talks about the car company).

I woke up at 4:30 this morning so I could fly to Germany to present a report to two people. I'm at the airport and likely won't be home till at least 9.

I think my body is too old for this. :weep:

Why no video conference?

I don't know. This brand team always has us fly, while for other projects for this company, we are allowed said virtual meetings.
