A dog and name story

A few weeks ago my neighbour’s dog was tragically killed in a road traffic accident. He ran into the road (the dog that is) and was hit by a van. Thankfully, my neighbour was physically unscathed but he was psychologically scarred as you might imagine. The good news is...
I’ve just returned from doing battle in my community. It was nothing too serious but there were times when things did become rather brutal and divisive. Worst still, aspersions were cast on my dear wife for the time it takes her to wash our windows. And before you start...

A New Man

Hello dear readers. I have been absent from the pages of Dorset Eye for a few weeks but with good reason. I have been going through personal changes and, after a couple of weeks at a rural retreat offering a mixed bag of therapies, I’m happy to report that...

Have bike – will travel

I have often criticised, rightly I feel, those people who ride our roads on things with only two wheels and no engine. Yes, fucking cyclists. They are dangerous, uninsured and are the cause of traffic jams on quiet country byways. I hate them, BUT… …believe it or not,...
The three best things about going on holiday are planning your trip, actually being away for a couple of weeks in the sun and, possibly at the top of the list, reporting back to your family and friends when you return home about how horrendous your flights were. ...
