Lord Flashheart took me for a 2o minuter's spin over the Isle today in his Gipsy Moth to take my mind off the plaster cast and bruises. "It's all very well, old boy, playing Cupid over Maidstone Gaol " he shouted, " but that Da Vinci contraption just isn't a crumpet puller. Leave that sort of thing to Ace -Ads.

"Grab some supper" he said as two or three of them bounced off the struts. Glad to be back on sofa safely with foot up!

I may have a bit of a problem with concussion as a result of my prang last week, but I am sure that I read about financial problems at Ursuline on the 'suspended' Thanetlife blog last November or December before 'Thom the Morris 'was on to it. Perhaps we had our 'Drudge' in Thanet all along and we and the good Doc Moores never realised it?
