When I retire I will steal hats
It turns out the owl is doing its own stuff and doesn't need my stories.

The water pump - update
Sunday, December 21, 2014
Oops - water pump again!
His patronising tone and attempt at humiliation went over my head at the time, but he was quite convinced that the pump I wanted was in the box in his hand even though an amateur at the well known game 'snap' would know the difference. Fortunately someone else working there seemed unfazed at a women holding an engine part in her hand and sorted it out.
I think I will do a spot of internet shopping for this little number this time.

The other place in a different boat
In a moment of inspiration we found ourselves in Cambridge and discovered a member of our party had never been. There is only one way to see Cambridge and that is by punt.
Time constraints were tight as we had promised to cook father luncheon. So we called James and Amy on Willow and asked whether they were close so they could join us. I left a message on the answer phone.
James and Amy joined us for the return trip.
Several years ago I was fortunate enough to have an invite to join James and Amy (on their previous boat Lucky Duck) on a maiden voyage up the backs (here) and this was the first time since that I had been back. Wonderful.
