You wait, and it flashes past ... that was pretty much it on the hill in Framsden this morning for the Tour of Britain.  At the bottom of the hill Framsden was making an effort, loads of spectators, loads of motorbikes, the inevitable creative parking and the race flashed past.

Framsden Doberman des' dinners 38

For some five years now NaTCH has been driving past that sign for The Doberman and never turning left.  He discovered The Doberman (formerly the Greyhound) is a charming country pub if rather swamped with Doberman memorabilia.  NaTCH, Spadge, and Goddess Steph were served outstanding blanchebait (whitebait in batter) as a main course.  Unfortunately the Mauldons Pickwick was cloudy, perhaps over chilled, and not very pleasant; but despite this NaTCH will be visiting again.  John B arrived late having just mended a pump for six pounds four pence.  AfARs from Matt (brewing) and David (work commitments {again}).  (first visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)
