It wasn't a massive collision but it has been enough to rattle my spine and, apart from giving me a whiplash, its stirred up my lower back which had been going along quite nicely. I'm not normally one to let such things stop me from fishing but I do have my limits and the idea of driving 500 miles each way is a complete no go. So I'm now a grumpy little so and so.
On the brighter side, having come to terms with Harvey's untimely demise, Nicky and I have been looking at dog. In the past we've had rescue dogs and they've always been excellent companions but this time we have gone for a puppy. Good decision? Time will tell. Anyway, I'm not going far for a while so I can spend some time house training the little monster.
So, here's Cane - not the bamboo stuff (well, maybe a bit :-) ) but the Welsh meaning - beautiful and he certainly is.
