Cool Cats Mate

After the introduction of Cool Cat meet his mate. This afternoon I've got half an idea for a very detailed bit of work. I'm still working it out in my brain.

Cool Cat

Cool Cat says "If the milk turns sour he ain't the pussy to drink it". Or is that dialogue from a film. But this Donny Cool Cat needs a brew a refreshing beverage.


I admit readers I'm not very good at cooking; I wanted to share that with you readers in the tree of trust on this September morning. I'm good at making a brew though!

On my travels yesterday I bumped into Rory Bremner, discovered a bookshop that Nigel Havers frequents. The housewives love him. I  checked the Whitecube gallery and a host  of galleries down cork street. I've got me a brand new flat cap to rock this autumn a new scarf maybe required next. Plus my road bike is mended.

Bike Repair

Well readers I've had to take time out to take my road bike to get some new parts fitted. I've took it the the cycling legend Dave Marsh in maltby, south yorkshire. I spotted a photo hanging in the shop of a young Malcolm elliot. Who at 48 years of age was the last British winner of the national tour in 1990 and whose career stretches back to the 1980 Moscow Olympics. He has currently scraped into the top 10 on the current Tour of Britain happening this week. I liked reading that after yesterdays stage Bradley Wiggins donned training kit and rode the 25 miles home to Chorley rather than travelling in the Garmin -slipstream team bus.

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard................... But this lad needs a brew.

Make U Smile

Routing through some old sketchbooks this drawing made me smile. So I scanned and drew it again digitally I fell in love with it after drawing it maybe a year or so ago.


I rediscovered this 80s gem its a lego racing car which is part of my collection. I love lego from the 80s. This grainy photo was taken on my mobile phone.

Hello Donny?

Well readers if you ever wanted to see a slice of "Booze Britain" in all its glory look no further than visiting Doncaster today as race week reaches its climax with the St leger this afternoon. The people of Donny sup some stuff today thats a fact. And looking out my window the sun is out today so it promises to be a good one. I'm taking it easy today to be honest I didn't feel 100 % well yesterday.

Get renting or buy the dvd "Shifty" with daniel mays, riz ahmed and jason flemyng its a great british film, with a good soundtrack. Shifty is an action packed 24hrs in the life of a young dealer on the outskirts of London. 

Ladies Day

Well I popped across to Salford very swiftly early doors, on my return to Donny, I'd forgot we'd reached the calendar event that is "Ladies day" for Doncaster Race week. It was too much for this single man it was a sea of legs and cleavage and big hats on my return to the train station, as the ladies were off to the races.

Wednesday, 9 September 2009


Well i was thinking to myself on the bike I'd have liked to have gone away this year. Maybe todays hot weather has led me to this image. Anyhow I need a cold can of pop today.

Last few days I've seen articles in papers and online about words / phrases used in text and email making it into the dictionary. Got to confess when I first came across the word lol at the end of an email from a fella I did worry a bit. But I laugh out loud when I see it everytime now.

Lazy Oaf Blog

Readers this evening I found out I have my illustration up on the Lazy Oaf blog visit find me with eight other including sir Bob London we like his work at Heighton HQ. Reet kettle on. We continue.


I've just read that a place in Doncaster is trying to raise the cash to buy some lions from a zoo in romania. The way things are managed in Donny let alone animal enclosures; one would escape and I'd be confronted by one on a bike ride and have to demonstrate sprinting skills on the bike on par with Mark Cavendish.
