Around Again

One year from today and the London Olympics 2012 get under way; That will soon come around I'm quite sure. I read earlier that Bradley Wiggins is gonna attempt both the Tour de France, then go straight into the the Olympic camp. That man has unfinished business on the TDF and I hope he fulfills it. I'm hoping next year; I can be in Paris next year to see that drama unfold along with thousands of others...

In The Wild

I've drawn the above especially for Mr Drury this is my version of something we saw out in the wild of Paris. Reet now I need a brew so the kettle is going on reet away...

Hopes & Fears

Well here is a little dude taking the Mickey... I love this character it makes me smile. I've been doing a load of drawing on and off today listening to tunes. Thinking about all my hopes and fears; any how we continue....


Well over the weekend I visited Paris to see the end of the Tour de France; which I thoroughly enjoyed. History was made by that man Mark Cavendish the first Briton to win the green jersey. I ate some good food even breaking away from consuming Burger and chips for a little while. I saw some great artworks, market stalls and attractive ladies along the way on my Tour. The French they love there wine, millions of bottles must have been supped that weekend in Paris. By eck; I missed having a brew or two over them few days.

Well todays stage on the TDF should be a belter; with that mountain they have to climb and some snow may be on the cards. I shall be interested to see who gets up that mountain first today. I'm thinking the Schleck's may do a old "One, two and make a snowman", up that mountain today.

Easy Now

Everyone is either going on a holiday or been on one; it seems when I'm bumping into folk around Costa Del Doncaster. I got caught up in some rain on my bike first thing, but them lads on the TDF tomorrow may see some signs of snow on that big mountain they have to tackle. Meanwhile a storm is on the cards in Donny tonight.

Here you go readers some dialogue that is said by millions of men on a daily basis with there online adventures or is just me... Today in my neck of the woods it's once again been raining; but I did find out "Sex, Lies And Handlebar Tape" the biography of cyclist Jacques Anquetil the first five times winner of the Tour de France is out in paperback. Now that man did love boobs....

Mr Bowlegs Not Bojangles

Well yesterday it just rained a lot in my neck of the woods. My dad announced musically he only likes "SeaSick BoB", I couldn't be bothered to correct him and waste time. I did enjoy yesterday's stage of the TDF, it was good to see young Swifty finish inside the top ten. I think we shall see good things from man from South Yorkshire over the next few years in the TDF.

Ice Cream

Yesterday I read an article about favourite haunts and cool hotspots to visit in Paris. One such listed a great saturday afternoon is to be had roaming a flea market for antiques, books and other wares; but it advises to complete this task with an ice cream.

Rudding Park Hotel

One of my prints "The Meeting Place" is now hanging in Rudding Park Hotel, in North Yorkshire it's a swanky looking place. Yesterday I caught the highlights of yesterdays stage of Le Tour, those riders are indeed hard as nails, those crashes were bad.

To The Church

By eck there were a lot of crashes on Yesterdays stage of the Tour de France. I have to admit Cav, G, and Wiggins are my heroes. I wonder what drama will unfold on todays stage. Reet it's time for a brew then some sorting before more drawing.

Cannot remember the last time I saw someone with a skateboard. But perhaps I'm getting old and not in the cool locations to see skateboarders. Its been another busy day for me in Donny nowt much more to report but; I'm loving the drama on le Tour already.

Le Tour

It's that time of the year once more the Tour De France starts once again today; 198 riders competing for that coveted yellow jersey throw in some zany fans along the way it all makes good drama. My predictions are Wiggins will get a podium finish and young Ben Swift will shine on a stage or two. Cav will no doubt do the business on a few stages aswell, I'm hoping Cadel, Ned boulting, and Liggett will provide some comedy moments.
