You may or may not have noticed (or care) that I have not been posting on the Chariot recently for several reasons.
A) Mrs FEEG had that operation that nearly one in four ladies end up having, not for any sinister reason but more because of fighting a losing battle with gravity. I am sure the ladies here know what I mean, and the gents do not want to know Anyway, to help her with her convalescence, I was doing my blue-arsed fly impersonation dashing about after her and have not had too much time to post. I am glad to say she has now fully recovered and is as fit as a fiddle again.
B) I was on the organising committee for a big college Alumni Reunion weekend and that took up a fair bit of my time and energy. We have now held the weekend and it proved very successful. I even met a couple of girls (well, mature ladies now) who were on the same course as me at Uni., and whom I have not seen since graduation.
C) We have just returned from a visit to our son and daughter-in-law in Washington DC. As our son now has dual citizenship, he can vote in the forthcoming presidential election and as he is a member of UKIP, you can imagine his chagrin when the local Obama campaign HQ was set up in an empty office at the end of their road. Anyway, apart from that we had a great time, doing many things we have not done before in DC. One particularly good trip was a tour around DC in a DUKW, an amphibious WW2 truck converted to carry passengers. We saw some parts of DC we had not seen before, and when the DUKW went into the River Potomac, we had an interesting river cruise as well. Particularly as there is a pair of breeding ospreys who have built a nest on the pillar of a railway bridge there and have some chicks. (Before you ask, no, I did not get any photos, my camera had a flat battery!)
Anyway, after all that, I hope I will have more time to annoy you all with my trivial posts again!
