Well me fave optician Morticia has done her thing and pronounced Casp as having 20:20 vision :) which is quite remarkable considering just how long-sighted I became after operation 4 (albeit that was planned).

Read whichever line you can see comfortable she says and I read the 20:20 line, then the one below that and was about to start on the very bottom one as well :)

Still got "smeared" vision (like you write something with an ink pen and accidentally smudge it before it is totally dry - you can see clearly what is there but also a smearing around the letters too).

Methinks I will start leaving the glasses off now and again (I can manage fine on the PC without them) to "train" the eye into working again, after all it has spent 10 years doing not a lot.

Things are good indeed and will still get better - so next visit to Bristow town will be in late April. Maybe next time our respective partners will make it too?

Only thing that spoiled it was playing sardines on the train from Brizzle to Newport cos the dopey gits only put two carriages on when there was enough peeps to fill 4!!
Now what should I put here?? Let me have a think.....

Strangely enough, you're not the first person to suffer that indignity on our local trains - I don't know if your local news covered this story about the fare-strike last week? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/bristol/6269875.stm

A slight aside, and later than the possible meet, but Eileen and I are in Bath from about 22th-28th May.

The weather should 'hopefully' be starting to pick up by then - maybe you won't need to open "Ray's tow-you-out-of-the-shite service" this time?

It was MW I did 'that' to... Ray hasn't had that 'pleasure' yet.  >:D

It was Little Solsbury Hill that I just about killed him with.  :)

A glimpse at an OS map will tell you why he didn't like it very much. :gig:

188m to the trig point  :hysterical: :hysterical: :hysterical:


This is where I've been Map link

Parked the car at about the L of Penyrheol, across to Upper Race, following the track across to the farm NW of 'Race' then up onto the moorland along the fenceline that runs between the Upper and the Race. Now that is a hill .... a Welsh hill
