Went to pub seven minutes away. First time i've managed to walk all way without stopping for shortness of breath and bad back. Don't think I'll play walking football tomorrow night. Walking football is football for over 50's, with no running allowed. It's surprisingly good standard, and you get a bit of a work-out, even though you're not running. Fresh air and exercise. Not bad for anyone over 50. Give it a go. Just type your town walking football, and you should get clubs in youur local area.
Spoke to Alice down the pub. Very down to earth. She's looking forward to her month in Australia. Also spoke to Sam the new barman, and James, local lad. Nice boys/men.
Also spoke to Mr X., a Glasgow man, a builder and highly intelligent.
I told him I started smoking when I was 21. He said he beat me by 18 years. He started smoking when he was three. He used to buy cigarettes for his mum, and smoke them himself. I asked him how he paid for his fags when he was only 5 years old. He said he borrowed a lot of halfpennies from his brother, and then go down the telephone box. Every time he put a halfpenny in the "2d", tuppence would come out. Refuelled he would go down the shop, buy hi pop, his sweets and his ciggies. Should have been Young Entrepreneur of the year.

I've had a a half point win on Kjeldsen, and similar on Broberg. More social bets rather than serious punts. I may add that I have had a 1 point won on Jordan Speith to win the US Masters, the US Open and the US PGA. Total 3 points. I will have 3 douubles and a treble later, but may have to go to a bookies to get that bet on.
