“'I then realized my appearance was a bit odd. My right leg was no longer with me. It had caught somewhere in the top of the cockpit as I tried to leave my Spitfire.'”—Captain Douglas Bader (1910 - 1982) WWll Royal Air Force fighter ace
Love the look. Lived in London from '91 to 2000 and rode with VC Londres http://www.vcl.org.uk at Herne Hill. I miss English beer and black cabs. I even miss the NHS.
Cheers for the compliment. Your blog is top drawer (or rather shelf). I’ve been meaning to go to the Herne Hill Velodrome for years; I’m fascinated by its Olympic history. I’m guessing you live in the US now. I lived in Ohio a couple of years back. I miss Chipotle, Samuel Adams lager and state fairs. Not sure how you miss the NHS! I’m sure you know the site but if not check out http://www.thefixfixfix.com/fix/
