    There was a young, bearded chap coming down the path from the Outwoods rather fast yesterday, just as I was starting up the path (rather less fast). Would that be Billy? He was gone before I could say "Hello"!
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    Quite possible, although it's difficult to compare my memory of a face that flashed past so quickly with a picture that doesn't show the face very clearly!

    First time out in tights this autumn and a good job as a dog bit straight through em and through my undies lucky just glanced the skin, the owner got all edgy when I said he should have it on a lead until he realised I was checking the hole in my pants to see if I was bleeding, being a dog owner myself I know dogs can be a pain in the ass but I would imagine that I’m not the first runner that this particular mutt has reared up at, on the plus side, a lovely evening for a run, 4 miles with Mrs DTR who’s just finishing off a cold then another 8 myself joining a load of fields and footpaths with as little road as possible. I love the Autumn

    Edgy, after it had bitten you? What does he feel justifies needing a lead?

    I think he thought it had just tripped me until he saw the hole in my pants, it was on a footpath but it was clear that I as ran past it was shouted back to them as it maybe has previous form, I didn’t have time to slow and stop before it tried a chomp, Mrs DTR reckoned I should have asked him for the cash for the tights just glad I wasn’t in shorts.
