Scar Face


Yesterday I climbed the 3209 feet of England's highest Mountain, Scafell Pike in the Lake District, accompanied by my celebrity companions Neil Tennant from the Pet Shop Boys (55) and Notts County Director Sven Goran Erickson (61).

We were extremely lucky to have chosen a wonderful day and to have taken the long scenic route up from Borrowdale, and apart from a few dodgy moments on the corridor ascent ( and my companions being constantly pestered for autographs) everything went very well.

We clutched a trusty copy of Alfred Wainwright in our paws and it felt as if the great man was right alongside us all the way.

I hadn't realised that the entire cast of Last of the Summer Wine had been replaced.

I saw a similar comment to Vicus' on Facebook, and refrained from adding to the abuse, as I am so impressed/envious.

When is Mrs Rine going to persuade you to come and live up here?

Roger said...

Vicus: Yes, we enjoyed the bit where we all slid down in an old bath.

Dave: Thanks for the absence of abuse - we should tackle that hill north of Norwich sometime!

Kaz: I think she's a bit too keen on the Mediterranian climate on the East of the Country!

Are you mad or summit?

Roger said...

Scarlett: Excellent point! And Compo is the new LibDem leader.

Geoff: It's a Scaffel Ding Man!

How come you've escaped from Norfolk again - I don't remember any permission being granted?

Rog said...

Ziggi: Norfolk & permission required.

omchelsea said...

niiice. I'm a bit jealous of that view.

Rog said...

Omch: Welcome! And so am I - we live in the flatlands of East Angular.
