This is Max.
He belongs to my sister and is now in his mid 20s. He's become remarkably mellow in his dotage. I don't ride but Max and I are very good friends and he likes a cuddle.
I went out for a drive and happened across this. This is a hot air balloon taking off from Church Rd in Kenardington. It's well known locally as "Icom" and belongs to Merlin Balloons for whom my brother-in-law does occasional helping out kind of things, usually involving a free flight. Lucky bugger. As the balloon ascended it was buzzed by another local character flying his restored P51 Mustang. Quite a sight.
This is The Man of Kent in Middle Row, Ashford. When I was younger it had a bit of a reputation. I haven't actually been in it for nearly 20 years.
This is a picture of a man with an even more ridiculous name than my own. I didn't take this picture, I stole it.
