Oh, look – another insipid sports metaphor. We can’t really escape them, can we? But I suppose I can take solace in the fact that I don’t know what it means or what sport it’s from. I think it’s jai alai…

Anyway, this is a photo from a recent outing with the Tardy Mr Bugg, who’s supposed to provide the entire story, so I’m encouraging you to click on his link and find it. I would link directly to the post itself, except that he hasn’t posted it yet as I write this, so this is only to his main blog – I’ll correct it when he finally puts the post up.

While waiting, you can bask in the warm glow of my voice (well, you know, compared to certain others, anyway) with the podcast that I just added, below. We’re entering the slow season, and this is a reflection of it, but also hopefully a source of further news within the next two months. We’ll just have to see, won’t we?
