I feel like a pioneer, and that wouldnt be one of the catholic ones that avoid alcohol. It feels very different writing on this site, and I will just take a deep breath and try it.
Well, its a Bank Holiday weekend here in Norn Iron, and the Police are starting a clamp down on dangerous drivers. Pity they hadnt been on the A1 last night when I was driving home from Belfast after my exam. (thank you for asking, it was fine)
I was really shocked by some of the antics of drivers on the road. At one point, I had 2 boy racers driving past me and overtaking each other like it was Kirkiston. I know I am starting to advance in years and find the yoofs a bit hard to take, but these guys were nothing more than an accident waiting to happen.
As I got closer to Banbridge, I came upon another old geezer who was either having a slow heart attack or was very very drunk. Weaving in and out of lanes, head drooping onto the steering wheel, a proper hazard he was.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve hung up my keys and leaving Bessie in the driveway for the rest of the weekend.
Speaking of which, the Blues on the Bays Festival is on in Warrenpoint this weekend and is always a sure thing. Van Morrison is scheduled to play at the weekend, and if the weather holds up he should surely sing “Wouldn’t it be great if it was like this all the time”
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
