  11. Today I have been bettered, hoodwinked, neigh downright tricked by my daughter.
    She “only” achieved a 2:1 in her Law Degree last year & so my ongoing attempts to avoid buying her a dog stayed on track. I do recall saying something along the lines of “yeah sure if you ever do better than that, the deals back on” as her plan at the time was to take a year off travelling before attempting to actually find work. However Covid put an end to all that and so she decided to sit her Masters. Today I get this:
    You said if I graduate with a first you’ll get me a dog! Well now I will graduate with a distinction in my LPC postgrad so that’s one step further me thinks…
    & then seconds later, this:
    Therefore as a graduation present I expect it to woof
    Getting out of this is going to take some seriously creative thinking...

  14. Spent most of today (and yesterday (and the day before)) hurling about smaller rural roads in Angus and Aberdeenshire on the little wee SB200. The traffic is getting too bad on the more main routes so the Supersport might be confined to the garage until the schools go back. I think it is made worse this year with so many people staying in Britain for their holidays - there certainly seems to be more clueless critters than usual polluting the highways, that is for sure.

    Most of the back roads are almost traffic free and many (but certainly not all) of them have excellent surfaces. My excuse for all this hurling about is that I am making fuel and exhaust adjustments to the little 2-stroke and since I don't have access to a rolling road then lots of road testing is the only alternative.

    Photo taken into the sun so didn't work too well:

    This was once the main road to Aberdeen, now it doesn't go anywhere at all:

    There are a surprising number of abandoned roads but most are not as large or as long as this:
