Almost an Associates reference there, which will mean nothing to you lot.
Note how I drag you in with a bit of Donnington, too, perhaps leading you to expect another trashing of the Cotswold cod liver oil they call beer.
But no, this was a Saturday lunchtime in Rugby, buying those little leads that go from the charger to your mobile phone that magically make it work, and my LAST TICK IN WARWICKSHIRE.
Apparently Duncan was trailing me on Saturday, no doubt following the dripping pink marker as I reminded myself what a surprising place Rugby is, by turns earthy and stately.
Our intrepid band of pubbers were discussing our next crawl. Rugby is high on the shortlist, with a dozen possible boozers in a compact centre.
