  1. Hello - haven't seen you for a while. Hope everything's ok.

  2. Congratulations on your wedding. I hope you and the new Mrs Freewheeling had an excellent day. :)

  3. I had a bizarre dream last night - I was reading The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and a man stoppd to ask if I was enjoying it and it turned out to be you - LOL!

  4. I'm pretty busy and have tons of books to read, but I was thinking that if the "led" reading circles weren't a success we should move to an unelected ad hoc private circle where we just read books we wanted to no matter how obscure, etc...


    I'll let you know once I've picked up a copy, anyway.

  5. Hi!


    I didn't want to add too many of my own suggestions for the poll, and as there had been interest by two for the Williams play and just you and me for The Diving Pool, the play won.


    But, I'd love to read it more or less together, if you're up for it. Sort of a shadow circle. *laughs* I read a few first pages and felt it was really good!


    Let me know what you think. And if you're interested, when you have time. There's no rush, though. I know you have a circle to host in few weeks.



  6. Hey there Mac. All's well with me, although generally quiet. Haven't been reading much lately. A 2 week road trip through to the Alps and back will get me back to reading in bulk. I'm going to empty a Waterstones some time later this week.


    How are things with you?

  7. Afternoon, Andy. How, in the name of Odin's beard, are you? I have returned from my fearsome attack on my garden and am now opening a bottle of a cheeky little bottle of Barolo (a reassuringly expensive bottle of Italian wonderment!).


    So. All's well with you, I trust?

  8. Oh. Er. Yes. So I was. I do feel comfortable that my ignorance of Italian wine is not much greater than almost anyone else's. It makes Burgundy seem positively simple.


    I await your proposal with, er, interest?

  9. On your profile with Mac. *laughs* It's okay. And the difficulty comes form the multitude of small estates. It's so troublesome to keep track...


    Politics, football and literature. Sounds good. And I might have a proposition to you. Nothing dirty, mind you! But I'll PM you.


    I'm good. As I just said to Peacefield, it's been a good start of the week: my security guy nearly shot himself, BF's giving my best friend smart-ass comments and I'm driving Ski Guy bonkers. I'm having a blast! *laughs* Oh, and I've been sorting through stuff, cataloguing books and stuff.

  10. Was I talking about Italian wine? When? How? I don't even know anything about Italian wine, really, except that I like it, and it's impossible to work out what's good except by looking at the price-tag.


    I'm good. I've not been posting much lately. Desperately trying to churn my way through Jan Morris's Venice, which has spectacularly failed to grab my attention so I've been at it for well over a month. And I've been arguing politics and football on other websites.


    How are you?

  11. Hello Sweetheart!


    What are you doing, talking about Italian wine without me... *shakes head in disappointment*


    How are you? I've been missing you on the forum, I think.

  12. Hey there. Sorry I didn't reply yesterday. I was dragged outside to do gardening all day by the gf.

  13. Greetings Andy. How are you on this Sunday morning?

  14. Ha. I'll press the reply button and see where it crops up this time.


    You're not the only one in on a Saturday night, although here I'm preparing to cook for 10 tomorrow and look after the GF's sister who's visiting from the US for the first time.


    Nothing wrong with Italian food and Italian wine. Although I still don't really understand Italian wine. Just know that I like it.

  15. Good work on the prologue posts, fella. By gum, I fair gostered with mirth, as they say. How's tricks? I notice you replied to my message on your own wall. An interesting idea. It's Saturday night! Woo-hoo! I'm staying in! Woo-hoo! Again! Still, there's something to be said for Italian food, Italian wine and Italian wom...oh, bum...it's just Italian food and wine, then...
