So Gail is away to Nottingham for a few days, to visit Human Granny and also to meet up with some old friends for a short bicycle tour in the East Midlands region.
Naturally I assumed I would be invited, and was quite hurt when told that it would be "not practicable" and even "inconvenient" for me to join the trip this time.
No matter then that it is highly "inconvenient" to me be banged up in kennels and with no access to a computer for nearly a week.
It is also "inconvenient" to be deprived of a warm comfy lap to rest on of an evening.
Not to speak of the "inconvenience" of not being able to spend time with Human Granny and give her loving hand licks and be fed Pontefract cakes.
Dear friends, normal blog service will resume next week. Until then, I'll be missing you all. So "inconvenient", as I'm sure you'll agree...
