I’m a regular at our local Bannatyne’s gym, usually visiting for a couple of hours between 0630 hrs. and 0930 hrs. – a lot of members going before they start work. The remainder are oldies who begin early simply because they sleep badly and an early start isn’t a penance. Half a dozen of us end their visit chatting in the Jacuzzi or stopping off in the café for a cup of tea and a chat.
It was during such an adjournment that a ‘Jolly Boys’ outing to North Norfolk was planned. All early risers and a reasonable weather forecast we set off last Monday at 0600 hrs. in pouring rain, four old reprobates decided that there is no such thing as the wrong weather just wrong clothing. There should have five of us but he was a Scotsman and therefore unused to rain – he had looked out of his window, saw the weather and decided that he had to visit a friend who had been admitted to hospital.
