On top of that Carl treats his guests like royalty. Despite a long day driving us around Carl cleaned his Discovery inside and out while Mrs B and I were fast asleep. Our car is lucky to see a sponge every six months and would probably freak if we took a Hoover to the inside. My idea of cleaning the interior of ElleGee is to go out in a rain shower with the roof down and slow down to less than 70mph (the magic number for keeping relatively dry during anything but the heaviest of rain falls).
It took a while but after a couple of hours of waiting we glimpsed a dorsal fin, scything through the waves , it was very exciting but despite the long wait our friend the dolphin ordained only to show us his fin and tail….not even a glimpse of an eye or face….Now don’t get me wrong I think dolphins are brilliant it’s just, aren’t they just Sharks with a better dental plan and superior PR?
- Are better at covering their tracks;
- Have better Alibis;
- Wrote the scripts for the Jaws films;
in, between phone calls, tumbling over and over in a
downward spiral that any Red Kite would be proud
of. My only hope was that it would swoop away at the last
moment from the rather rancid looking puddle it was heading
towards….The splash (well more of a splodge really ) told me
that the Red Kite impression was over. It bounced once and then
arked up and I watched in horror as my “not so smart” phone
leaped from the case and managed to separate itself into three
distinct parts – the back casing, the battery and the rest of the
phone…..it was like watching a mini-synchronised swimming
event......if the event was being held in an open sewer rather
than a nice clean swimming pool.
