Saturday night and Sunday morning

November 6, 2016

last night I managed to get in touch with Mick Rehorn ex 10 Hussar who came to the Regiment in Munster ,I worked with him in MT and after Herford I lost touch with and his wife Shiela . If you remember we had a few ex 10th come to us in 69 before the amalgamation of the 10th / 11th Hussars ,like when us in 71 we had mates go to outfits ,then like me in 76 when D Sqn was disbanded in Edinburgh I ended up in the 14/20 KH . Now that was a great Saturday night ,but Sunday morning we had a visit by a weasel or stoat even a mink ,it killed 2 of my chickens . This living in the country has its advantages peaceful etc but there are animals ( like man ) that kill for the fun of it , Foxes are the so called bad guys but at least they only kill and take the kill to feed their young ,last nights visitors just killed leaving the dead chickens behind and as my grandkids named and played/fed these birds it's a bummer Sunday

Bob, the fox is notorious for killing all it can in a hen coop/chicken run, outside those two places it will kill more than it needs, and then bury them it has the same traits as an hyena, in that it will eat carrion that it has buried. I think it is the red eyed bloodlust that gets brer fox his reputation. you will have to step up to the plate and get a pest/vermin proof hen/chicken run, or set the proverbial traps, OR do without those eggs with a fantastic taste and look, for me the latter is a no no, so get cracking young man

Watford manager said it is six of one and half a dozen of the other, or was it  he is sick of one or hmmmm  trailing off into the distance, I couldn't quite make out what he was saying.   COME ON YOU REDS, YEAH.

What a score that was!! It was great to watch the new players who were given a run out in the match doing so well, and once Firmino and Coutino got up a head of steam it was all over for the opposition,  and I was pleased to see that the 3 new youngsters in Red came in and  scored today. The only drawback was the fact that the Kop Choir seemed a bit off key when they started singing, but not everything can be perfect ALL the time eh?? Ho Ho Ho.....
