Jets v Thunder

Husb and I went to watch the Cheshire Jets tonight. (Previously called Chester Jets.) Dizzy is the new mascot and he did a ridiculously hilarious half time thing where he ROLLED the full length of the court (which couldn't have been easy for the poor chap inside). Anyway Worthing Thunder weren't very thunderous and it was an easy victory for our lads.(Nice arms!)

Lady Godiva and the Sky Blues

I had a few hours with Dad in Coventry yesterday, just doing things like cutting his toe nails for him and cleaning his kitchen so he treated me to tea out at the Mount ( a regular haunt of ours!). It has recently changed hands and although it wasn't very different inside, there were several new photos up on the walls including a WHOOPTYDOOOO Sky Blues area with photos of the Ricoh. Dad and I sat with the gnomes.

There was also a photo of Lady Godiva on her horse but my photo of the photo didn't come out very well.

The Legend.(From wikipedia)

"According to the popular story, Lady Godiva took pity on the people of Coventry, who were suffering grievously under her husband's oppressive taxation. Lady Godiva appealed again and again to her husband, who obstinately refused to remit the tolls. At last, weary of her entreaties, he said he would grant her request if she would strip naked and ride through the streets of the town. Lady Godiva took him at his word and, after issuing a proclamation that all persons should stay indoors and shut their windows, she rode through the town, clothed only in her long hair. Only one person in the town, a tailor ever afterwards known as Peeping Tom, disobeyed her proclamation in one of the most famous instances of voyeurism. In the story, Tom bores a hole in his shutters so that he might see Godiva pass, and is struck blind. In the end, Godiva's husband keeps his word and abolishes the onerous taxes."
