ON YER BIKE





The Beastmobile finally gave up the ghost and I had to be towed home with a banjaxed clutch.


I blame Mr C's canine familiar Lloyd , who ran away while on his walk and caused much racing up and down from the Beast's Lair to Dorchester to firstly join the midnight search party , then to go and spring Lloyd from Weymouth Goal where a kindly Lorry driver had dropped him off after finding the little blighter capering around on the A31 and causing a traffic jam at 6 oclock in the morning.

Of course the clutch went bang in the middle of a huge traffic jam so it took the recovery van flipping ages to come and get me .

Little Lloyd is sleeping off his big adventure.

The Beastmobile is now recieving the tender mercies of the local mechanic and hopefully will be restored to its former glory(a scratched ,chewed and dented , doghair filled heap) shortly

Miss Scarlet , Less is more or so we are told , but as far as the Beast is concerned more is better

Just my general greediness

I can't remember the last time I drove stick. But I do remember what a pain it is when the clutch goes out--happens eventually!

In the meantime, you ought to get a sled (I'm sure one of the Canadians can lend you one), tie them dogs to it, and have them pull you around town to work and errands.

Weymouth Goal?
Wow - Did you raise his bail money?
What with that and the mechanic's bill - you'll need to work extra shifts at Cafe C.

Why can’t you use your Supersport Mobility Scooter?

Is the clutch busted on THAT too?

That would be very cool
Mush Mush and that would tech that little devil Lloyd

Given the fact that you don't get much snow there, you'd have to use the summer sled version: with wheels!

Sorry, can't remember how to do links, so you will have to cut and paste. But looks like a blast and Lloyd would be so tuckered out, he's never run off again!

Perhaps you should put a turbocharger on your Zimmer frame.
