Yes, Calvin is a god of the underworld! And the puny inhabitants of earth displease him!

Yes, Calvin is a god of the underworld! And the puny inhabitants of earth displease him!

(Monday) Well, I did look pretty stupid but having washed and donned my amazing orange sports kit then added a plastic bag I set off on yesterday's run. It didn't go too badly. The sound of the pinto's hooves, Rocksta, Doug, King of Pugs, the ocarina and bugles guided me in the right direction to the end. Plus, the bag on the head obviously rendered me invisible to all dog walkers because I didn't get knocked over again. Phew!

Until tomorrow - follow the pinto!

(Here's my photo.)

Morning Dozz, d'ya know Ive learnt something today. For years and years I have always thought it was "God's own County " Fancy that , I bow to your superior knowledge, Sir. Oooh you are so brainy Dozz, its scary :-) xxx

Oops, misspelt that one - well spotted. I could say I was just testing to make sure you were paying attention, but no. Mea culpa.

So it is County ? Ah, okay, that's good , I am not as daft as I look :-) xxx

Yes, you see, I'm not infallible. My full title will be, until I next change my mind - The Supreme Leader of God's Own County and All Surrounding Outposts. Possibly a bit lengthy so may be altered soon.

Ha ha , yep it'll definitely catch on that one ! :-) xxx

Are you insinuating something. (Or, as nan would say - incinerating.)

Reply

No Dozz, honestly , not me , Im not incinerating , although I could maybe do with a trip to the knackers yard...

The swimming's prob my strongest discipline - it must be the onesie!

Reply

Huzzah!

Glad you managed to stay upright, but I hope this doesn't give you ideas for the triathlon for the discombobulated, running for 30 minutes with a plastic bag on my head really doesn't appeal - especially in the heat. I ran for 32 minutes today - longest since end of March. Woopdedoo.

Many congrats - a definite woopdedoo! Possibly a hooded swim today because running certainly was hot.

Reply

Hooded swim quite dangerous these next few weeks, no danger of dogs but kids are on school holidays so danger of being submerged by floats and jumped on if I don't have access to 360 degree vision. What about a nice swimming cap - with white daisies? Still need my goggles as I canna see underwater (or swim for that matter) without them. Am planning on going at the end of this week for a practise.

Reply

Undecided about bag on head - maybe I'll cut a hole in the front and have it like Green Arrow's hood. I reckon if it coordinates with the onesie I might pull it off. Good luck with the swimming.
