A Lesser Dog

I send L some photos that were taken of me on Monday at dog training. I am pictured with a ‘lesser’ dog. It’s a Heinz 57 thing but is quite cute I suppose. Naturally L is thrilled telling me how good I look with something small and furry. Now she wants one instead of a new cooker. Tell that to the gasman.

I’m on the bus and after work I head straight to Nottingham and meet L at Beer Festival.

After an aperitif at Flipside we head to our favourites Lincoln Green where a guy from the brewery keeps giving me free samples of their Buttermuch Butterscotch flavoured ale in an attempt to convince me that I won’t like it because he doesn’t. Perhaps he’s just trying to get rid of it. He fails because I love it.

They also have our favourite Tuck with added Vimto. Very odd but ok although it’s better neat.

We forget to seek out the stagnant algae beer.
