    Yeah. I'm reluctant cos I've never used anything to support the camera and try to keep what I carry in the winter to a minimum. But going to have to give this a go. I realised today that this is the reason I've not really used the camera. Because before it was difficult and a bit painful to use and now its awkward and a little uncomfortable. So if a mono pod thingie is easy to manage (I'm kack handed at the best of times!!) then it's worth it

    The great and the good (all of them, not just these two) are very very good at telling us plebs that we are flying/driving/eating too much. They however always have an excuse.

    Not sure if I missed this but how did you manage to get road tax for it? I thought you had to be on the insurance database now.

    I went to dab my card on the reader and the barman just looked at me with a knowing smile.

    We were in Quaglinos's, by the way, so was always going to be trumpy.

    Cocktails are never cheap. IME a Death in the Afternoon is rarely less than a tenner.

    I remember sir having a great attack when you bought a round here in my local bar.

    6 drinks were 8€

    People who get arsey when I put my stick on their foot!

    i has one today, it seems that now I use a stick I am invisible to a certain type of quim,well the news he discovered was that he really was invisible to me, and I put my stick square on his foot and leaned on it!

    i nearly fell over when he pulled it away... squealing like a stuck pig!!

    It seems that suddenly I WAS visible, and that he was going to say rude words at me! I simply informed him that he could fornicate off, or discover the joys of anal penetration by a walking aid! This was at the hospital and I was in the middle of a less than fun day, which somehow made it worse.
    he decided that he would take my advice and left, which was lucky, as I couldn’t punch my way out of a wet paper bag anymore, but I still feel like I could!

    peripheral vision is really cool, I do hope mine returns,as I am a total liability when out and about!

    Fuck!

    Perhaps you'll find this amusing. it occured back when I had the health scare shit hit the fan - and before I sought medical attention. For the build up to the day in question, I had passed out and thought I'd just stood up to fast from being asleep. In reality, multiple TIAs and a mild heart attack had taken me down. Anyway, on to the event that I found rather embarrassing. I'd had just enough intelligence left to ask my wife to drive me to Sam's Club to pick up some items for my office. Which was a good thing because I probably would have killed someone if I'd got behind the wheel. I was waddling around pushing a shopping trolley and trying to look at something on the wall well ahead of me. My peripheral vision was, like yours, a bit fucked up, or it was just my awareness of what was going on almost right in front of me. There was some poor sap standing in the main aisle with his trolley in front of him - he was facing my direction and looking at a book. I tend to walk at a good pace in places like that so I can get the fuck out of them ASAP. I created a nice head on collision with my trolley and scared the living shit out of both of us. Missus Bwana saw it coming but thought I knew the guy and was fucking with him. I was reduced to mumbling an apology. I felt my face turn scarlet red. He never said a word, just stared at me with a big WTF look on his face.

    brilliant!
    i have also had some communication issues, I am SURE that the required words are coming out...and then I see the look on peoples faces!! It’s utter bollocks! Sometimes just the od word, sometimes whole sentences are made of random words, but in the tone of the required words. My lovely wife just looks at me and asks if I would like to try again, strangers just go very quiet!!
    hence I have virtually stopped going out, and hate talking with people. As I work(ed) in sales, this is somewhat restricting when it comes to employment. I hope this will return with my eyes!

    Trying to sell a car.

    FFS, it's a 400 quid snottter, if you ask nicely I'll take £300, it's got 6 months ticket and I'm 90% certain it'll pass another.
    Bosh, 300 quid for 18 months motoring, anyone would think I'm trying to sell a feckin McLaren for a million quid with all of the questions I'm getting and tyre kickers talking it down.

    This is the very reason I bloody hate buying & selling vehicles and normally avoid it like the black death, if it ain't gone by the weekend I'm taking it to a local common, packing it with fireworks and torching the shittin' thing.
