cold, depressed by closed rivers and the oncoming xmas onslaught ? here’s a little something that should distract you for at least a little while. regular readers will already know of my lack of affection for this Halford character but that doesn’t mean that he was all bad. the book is after all a classic and well worth the read, specially at work or hidden away in a back room during family festivities.

  1. Swearing it could be , but i’m usually more into shouting loudly profanities after missing a take while fishing . For the last 3-4 years with a couple exceptions i would never drink more than a beer mate, so if i swear its in a sober manner 🙂 also i didnt get drunk since 1995 when visiting a friend in Ireland, it wouldnt be too polite if i didnt get drunk:)

    • i don’t drink at all and have been to Ireland several times and i’ll go there again as its nice to be somewhere knowing you’re the only person that makes any sense !
      anyhow, let us know when your book comes out. the World is holding its breath.
