  1. Fixed it. You can go forward, now. And next time bring a toolbox. I don't pass this way often. And that is my wheel brace, so don't get any ideas.

  13. More presidential than Michael Dukakis.

    So this explains why you were in Twentynine Palms. Here I thought you were just taking seven weeks for a lark across the States, drifting about like a modern day Jack Kerouac, trying on new identities like Madonna or some spiritual chameleon, but you were just working.

  15. Wish I was driving one of those, and not the Vauxhall Astra, while hurtling through the hedgerow-lined back roads of Devon the past three days. The GPS was undoubtedly right about the efficiency of the route, but some appreciation for the strained nerves of the driver should have been factored in. Then again, there was no need to worry about being on the wrong side of the road - every side was the wrong side. Hedgerows look soft but they hide an unforgiving heart of stone.
