My seasonal "summer" thread.

Postby AyeYerMa » Tue May 07, 2013 7:47 pm

Just thought I'd ask again chaps & ladies, what will you do during the long summer days when you have no rugby to occupy your chat centres?

My latest fetish is for mechanical gramophones, so I might restore one or three. I've found my mechanical level with the gramophone, electronics I can do to a reasonable standard. Mechanical stuff.... I'm not so good at. But I can manage gramophones and I like them, so... Gramophones this summer.

Will probably sneak off to Italy at some point to waste some nice Italian chap's 7.62 NATO for a weekend.

I think that's it this year.... Getting old.

Kerry in July Spain in August, tending to horses and donkeys in Millisle. That apart following Rory Best's captaincy in North America and watching the Rugby Championship.

Activity here will be writing huge quantities of old ballix on diverse subjects on the backroom lockin

USA in August but a bit of golf over the summer never goes amiss. Fills the time nicely.
You haven't seen me at my best yet. Let's be honest, you probably never will.

Off to see a re-enactment of the battle of Waterloo in June, then speaking at a couple of conferences in Vienna in July, then I have got two friends from California over in August who want to see the best of Ireland so any good suggestions greatly received.

Transfer-Siberian railway journey with the better half, looking forward to three weeks of good food , wine with the occasional vodka chucked in.

Mock not ye who is playing "my little pony" this summer! >threaten

Come the winter a man is happy that he had the foresight to go into his wood and drop a few trees and lay them out to season. Come the first frosts it nice to fire up the chain saw and take a flask of Tay into the wood and put in the logs for the winter.

Rome/Naples in June; Spain in July; as much time as possible watching the Ashes.
Volunteer at an animal sanctuary; it will fill you with joy , despair, but most of all love, unconditional love of the animals.

I would imagine that the smell of Guinness and Gin could well give the game away.And the atomic half life may disrupt the natural balance of things.
