I received the above text on my blog management page. I do not get it I VOTED OUT I will no longer submit to the whims of a bunch of self seeking bastards in a foreign country. The BILL OF RIGHTS says in plain English I do not have to submit to any laws made after our government has surrendered our sovereignty to a foreign power. Nuff Sed!

So far this year.

Well lookee here. The Old Maffster is writing again. There was a time when I would not go to bed unless I had written something. These days I write little having no inspiration.

I have been here, in the Oxford/Thrupp area, for some months. A minor problem I had with my ticker at the end of last year resulted in several visits to the JR hospital until I got the all clear.

Since Last august I have been having trouble with my heel. this emanated with a spur right at the point where the tendons atached to the bone. If you have ever had this you will know it feels like walking on a drawing pin. If you have never had it just hope you never do. I was refered to the hospital on January 12 it is now June and I am still waiting.

Then following a family phone call I made contact with a table and seriously injured my Ulna collateral ligament in my thumb that took 8 weeks to heal sufficently to be able to move my boat.

Up to this point I had been moving sowly up and down between Oxford and Thrupp to comply with the CC rules so I could attend doctors and hospitals. Then being properly 'single handed' I was unable to move the boat at all. My friend helped me to a mooring where I could easily get on and off the boat and we spoke to CRT who in there best charitable voice told me to stay. When I was able to move I travelled slowly up to Thrupp.

So this week, Thursday, I set up to leave Thrupp all I need was a quick check up at my Doctors for a shortness of breath problem I had been having. Doctor wasnt happy and by 12 o'clock I was in the JR having more tests in 5 hours than I had had in the last 50 years. I was given the all clear by the time I left the JR at 5 pm. As you can imagine this curtailed my leaving on Thursday. I finally got away on Saturday.

Being the kind chap I am I stopped to tie up a boat that had the pins pulled. Whilst getting ropes out of the water my wallet fell in. I made a grab for it and managed to catch it befor it sank beneath the water, but in doing that my phone fell out of my pocket and sank. I was so pissed off it was the third phone I had had since October (broken glass).

I spent a night at the Quarry with friends and moved Sunday.

I am now at Lower Heyford for a few days before further travels to northern climes or maybe southern climes who knows, I will keep you up dated.
