I forgot to mention, that we had to dial 999, ahd call an ambulance out the other day. A cyclist (called 'Gordon') fell off his bike, into the river. He was wedged between Chas's boat, and the concrete of the bank, and just laying there stunned. He'd hit his head on the way down, and when we fished him out, he drifted in and out of consciousness.

When they arrived, the paramedics opened his bag to look for ID, and we all noticed a very nearly consumed bottle of famous Grouse whiskey, which we surmised was the reason why he'd taken a tumble in the first place. Hope he's OK. But he's not been back for his bike, yet.

Thanks to Andy & Zoe (Nb 'Vigorina') for helping.
Hope you are OK, Gordon.


  1. hi son is all well as you have not posted for a few weeks now plus the post from me about your wedding anniversary still has not appeared, dad.

  2. Hi Dad. Things are fine with us, but down behind the lock at Sonning, the comms signal is very bad, so I haven't been updating much. When we move off down the river, situation should improve. That, and as you can see, we've been busy looking down holes.

    Cheers for the congrats, we had a nice day.
    Sorry to hear about the football.
    Should get yourself a dog. :)
