Saturday 10th March:
Its a wet mild morning and the plans for today have gone out the window owing to the rain. I was going to put a new roof on the two puppy sheds in the field. We have plenty of work to do other than that. We have a load of waste to take away where it come from I don't know. We will cut dogs nails and get a whole lot of bits and pieces. We will finish early today as Newcastle United have a massive game at 3pm. We need three points like an alcoholic needs a drink. If we don't get a minimum of four points in the next two games we will need a miracle to stay in the Premiership.
ON THE OPEN RACE SCENE IN THE UK WE HAD ONE WINNER SWIFT MILEY.
TONIGHT WE HAVE THREE RUNNERS.
AT TOWCESTER: CINCINNATI, CAPPOQUIN JACK AND WHIZZY WONDER.
Friday 9th March:
We have had heavy frost overnight so there wont be any galloping or hunting. Kamil is away for fish and that's us fully stocked up again. We will probably walk a few hounds and wash the silver van.
Its three years today since my mothers funeral. Like anybody who loses their mother I think of her every day. There was never a lady who worked as hard and she loved a laugh. I would ring her between once and a dozen times every day for the last 30 years. She could talk about anything dogs, horses, football, politics, business, people and places. She was nobodys fool and worked up until she was 88 and loved it. She loved talk about the past businesses we had; the fruit, potatoes, shops, buses our competition in business, people who had worked for us. She was always happy and never complained. She had a load of good sayings which would fill up two journals. She would also tell you off if you did wrong. She was 4 foot 11, 8 stone and frightened of nobody which is amazing as she had been the victim of serious crimes on two occasions; tied up and robbed in the house and she was in her 80's and two louts tried to steal her handbag which she wouldn't give up. Lucky which was a miracle family friends were passing and nearly murdered the two louts. The police were more concerned about the two louts than my mother getting mugged. I suppose this is British justice and modern policing.
ON THE OPEN RACE SCENE IN THE UK WE HAVE SIX RUNNERS TONIGHT.
AT CENTRAL PARK: SWIFT THOR, SWIFT MILEY AND JILLYPOPS.
AT ROMFORD: OH NONONO, OH YESYESYES AND JOVIAL MONK.
