Is that the one with the legendary pirate treasure?

What a few days I had last week, felt like I got the Trifecta up.

On Thursday I got a text inviting me to book my jab. Took about 3 seconds to get that booked & I was a mite surprised how quickly it cheered me up. Booked it for 0810 on Saturday.

On Friday my Contract was renewed for another 12 months. I had been told some time ago it would be, but even so, I was whittling to bits about it. And then, with hours to spare, it all came though. Happy days. That – all being well, God willing etc – will take me into my 16th year with them. The jobs I’ve had since I retired in 2004 is incred but who could ever have predicted a decade & a half with Sky? And it all began thanks to Phil Q.

Saturday morning I was as excited as the annual “off to Vegas” day. Arrived at the jab clinic 30 minutes early & the whole thing was just perfect. Think they’d hired the local Women’s Institute girlies for all the non-Medical admin & usherers, & they could not have been more friendly & helpful. I maybe spend too much time exposed to the rough & tumble of the internet world, & it was all such a contrast. Boris & Co have made a complete balls of the virus response, but here, at the ground level, it could not have been a better experience. I had the Pfizer jab & had no after-effects except I was absolutely buzzing. The whole thing lifted my spirits wonderfully. After the jab I had to sit in the “recovery area” (a tent) & it was full of elderly ladies & gents, all chit chatting to each other as if they had known each other all their life.  It was like turning the clock back half a century, everyone so friendly & no edge.   

Then the rest of the weekend was live updating the SPT Online, the biggest MTT Sky Poker have ever staged. 5 figure guarantees are rare there, but this was a cool £100,000, & it made just shy of £140,000. The Update got over 11,000 views, which is a tidy number for that forum. Two long days though, with Day 2 finishing at 0320 this morning, so I was physically wrecked.

Today? Flat as a pancake, the dreaded adrenalin hangover. This adrenalin stuff is the nuts, it enables us to do so many things, but the cold turkey is agony.

Talking of Red, he mentioned eating dogs last week, & it reminded me of this photo. So many questions, most of all why so many peas?

Thats great news, Mum has her jab on Wednesday and I'm over the moon about it. Give it a few months and we might have plenty to smile about this year over here.

Talking of mysteries…..

You’ve all seen this clip of Mr Trump’s (ex) Official White House Spiritual Adviser, but does anyone know why that geezer just keeps walking back & forth across the stage?

Butchered? This week I am going to be posting a very ambitious argument for it having been a good (or possibly borderline) call because it was a PKO and I could win four bounties. Given my co-author also thinks I butchered it I don't it will hold much weight, but hey ho, PKO Poker Strategy is available in all good book shops now

By way of a conversation starter, I posted this amazing photo on the Live Update. Bet that lot could tell a story or two. I chatted to Mr Channing about it a few days earlier & he remarked how interesting it was that 10 of the 11 are still with us.

I laughed far too much at those peas. I think I might be hysterical.
