MRS RM’s MYSTERIOUS DREAM REVEALED IN MILBROOK

Well, the Guide has arrived;

Baa Baa Toure is about to wonder where Carluke is.

My review of the new GBG will need to wait until the official publication date, though since CAMRA members seem reluctant to venture out to pubs they’re almost certainly reluctant to venture out to the Covid hotbed of Waterbeach and seize my advance copy if I do break embargo.

Back in Cornwall on Friday afternoon, Mrs RM made it back to Milbrook with 10 minutes to spare till her business call.

Now, there are but 3 certainties in life;

At the End Times those who asked for tasters will be sent to the same Hell as the bestialists.

The sun will shine on the righteous, as it did today.

Mrs RM will interrupt my ticking with a half-hour work call.

That half-hour allowed a gentle exploration of charming but unpretentious Milbrook;

Back at the campervan, the half hour was now an hour and I had to buy another parking ticket. That £1.70 would have been better spent in one of the village’s unpretentious pubs, but as I was driving Mrs RM to drink I was a bit frustrated in that regard.

A shame, as The Devon & Cornwall (GBG years back) only had Doom Bar on and was clearly still a classic. The Mark of Friendship was closed for renovation and will be re-opened as the Mark Crilley.

I spent an agonising minute worrying that Bar Tusker, named after Fleetwood Mac’s classic ’79 double album, would make the new Guide to taunt me.

Has it ? I don’t break embargos.

But I DO break confidences. Mrs RM told me she’d had a weird dream in which she baked my mum in a cake to protect her from Covid, then promptly forgot about her. It’s a metaphor, Dear Readers.

Six months later, she asks my mum if she wants to come out now.

Yes” says my mum.

Emma Stone is still considering the script for the film.

  1. You’re going to have a different experience with the new guide, aren’t you? Half the new ticks will currently be shut (many forever), and you’ll end up having to visit places close to home next summer, just for a change.

  2. “Well, the Guide has arrived;”

    Yay?

    “with 10 minutes to spare till her business call.”

    Apologies but in the OS map below I can’t help but snigger at ‘Queener Point’. 🙂

    “At the End Times those who asked for tasters will be sent to the same Hell as the bestialists.”

    Yes, yes but – as mentioned earlier – what if they called them pre-pour top ups?

    “but as I was driving Mrs RM to drink I was a bit frustrated in that regard.”

    (slow golf clap)

    “The Mark of Friendship was closed for renovation and will be re-opened as the Mark Crilley.”

    I have a friend whose name is Al Friendship. Too bad, as they could rename it the Al(e) of Friendship. 🙂

    “I spent an agonising minute worrying that Bar Tusker, named after Fleetwood Mac’s classic ’79 double album, would make the new Guide to taunt me.”

    Blimey! Too much sun and/or exertion to think that!

    “Mrs RM told me she’d had a weird dream in which she baked my mum in a cake to protect her from Covid, then promptly forgot about her. It’s a metaphor, Dear Readers.”

    Ooh, ooh! It’s actually deeper than that. Your mum is the nail file in a cake normally sent to those that are imprisoned. She is the thus, the way for people to break free from the abomination that is the Covid lockdown.

    Cheers!
