A big weekend coming up in the Barbel world,well the Barbel Society world anyhow.As mentioned last month they have a meeting of the great and the good tomorrow,to thrash a few things out.
Alas the "mystery guest",has had a knock back.Apparently two of the current committee resented him being their, to offer an alternative view.One reason is that he is a lapsed member,the other is that he was indiscreet(happy now Bob),in mentioning it and that it ended up on this blog.Well you two who ever you are ;-),he did not mention it to me.Another chap did.Anyway the "mystery guest" shall now be walking the Malvern Hills,with his young "Skief".Lucky escape old chap.Not all the committee shall be in attendance,as some will be away on a little soiree with others BS folk,no doubt having a good old natter.I hope though Mr.Frampton starts as he means to go on.Good luck Rich,I think you may need it.
This song is for you,mate.Mystery Guest,not you Rich.I'll do a dedication another time.
Also my lot will be at home to Chelsea,and I can't see further than a loss of 3 or 4 nil.I'll be at Stoke away next weekend the 18th,for a good day out.Such a welcoming place is the Potteries,when you visit for football.
I shall instead be on the river.I did want to have a go for a few Roach on proper tackle,but it looks set to piss down on Saturday.So I shall be stuck under a brolly,hoping for a Barbel or two.In truth I'm a little bored with Barbel now.But trotting a float in the pissing rain is not my idea of fun.In fact my Biggleswade correspondent said in the week"I don't know If I'll cast a line for Barbel this season,the whole scene gets on my nerves now"And he has a point I think and I'll come back to this another time.
That's about it.As ever it being Friday I'm off for a cupla pints.So enjoy your weekend and I hope you catch.
PS Happy Eid to all my Islamic readers,such nice and misunderstood folk.
