One of those Days: Above Ashleworth with Gurney

Out to the car, about to flee, slipped on drive, grazed my knee.
Destination not remote, just a few miles to the 'Boat'
Inn; where getting book to view the task, opened pack to smash the flask.

Coffee gone, survived the fall; saw this picture on Tithe Barn wall.



Followed the walk past  Manor and sheds; climbing stiles to view Barrow Hill ahead.
Keeping momentum, not to stop, nearing Barrow Hill Top.




Such a view all smiles, no frowns;  read the words Gurney put down.



"O does some blind fool now stand on my hill
To see how Ashleworth nestles by the river?
Where eyes and heart and soul may drink their fill.

The Cotswolds stand out eastward as if never
A curve of them the hand of Time might change;
Beauty sleeps most confidently for ever. "

From ' Above Ashleworth '




Mislaid my stick whilst viewing  scene; it didn't help that it was green.
Walking back down the slope, to find my way home was the hope.
Managed to walk back  wrong way; but a Severn- side cider saved the day.

Watched  the "Robins " play local rivals Hereford yesterday (24/9).
Amazingly Cheltenham have never beaten Hereford since they attained League  status in 1996-97.

Furthermore, one tweet from a fan, stated that the last occasion  Cheltenham defeated Hereford was in the Southern League in 1969.
I mentioned this fact to ' old Vic, ' a Robins supporter since 1947, who reckoned he'd seen the team beat Hereford in the Conference in 1995. Well I'm not going to disagree with Vic, am I !




And the score, I hear you say ?
Why 0 - 0.

The record still stands.



Have a good week ahead and enjoy the warm weather, if it comes.

Ciao4now,

Ck.
