BSAOC International Rally - Thursday 10 Sep 09
In the morning was Silly Games (sorry no piccies) and a decent autojumble. This was the only day that the weather wasn't warm and sunny but was damp, grey and drizzly so Myles, Jess, Derek, Bernie, Jon and I decided to go for a short ride to Valkenburg. We enjoyed a very nice lunch (Goulash soup with pork balls for most of us) then a stroll around the shops, where we spotted a very nice German Triumph and a beautiful Moto Morini Corsarino (that I would have liked to take home). For a bit of culture, we decided to take a look at the castle ruins and were all surprised by the amount of grafitti carved into the castle walls, the dates ranging from 1855 to the current year. Derek remarked that the only person who hadn't vandalised the castle seemed to be Kilroy. Later on, we found the words "Kilroy was here".............We speculated as to how people had managed to carve some of the grafitti in such inaccessible places and concluded that it was done by a highly trained monkey on a stick. This opened up all sorts of ideas for possible uses for a Monkey on a Stick - any more suggestions will be gratefully received.
