    What's the problem? It's so simple, the Midlands is the bit in between the North and the South.
    It was nice to meet the main group in the City Arms which actually calmed down a bit after the group left but I was horrified to see the hordes of people drinking outside. If they all piled in after it started raining when I was in the Ape and Apple then it would have got completely mental. Despite being a cellar bar I made it to the Gas Lamp but it seemed I was there too late. The Brink was one cellar too far so I got a bus back to Piccadilly Station.
    It was a lucky escape with the weather as Callum decided to wreak havoc over Wales rather than NW England.

    I believe it's the Beautiful South next.

    The second picture nicely sums up the weather on the day.
    I forgot to mention but I noticed that the Titanic outlet on Stoke Station is now open. It's on the up (Southbound) platform so will come in very handy for Stoke visits where just about everywhere is a bus ride or a fair walk away. It's called BOD.

    Unprofessional, maybe, in the sense that nobody's paying you for them. But very good quality, Mick. The detail of the cuff of my jacket in the first one is astonishing.
    Come On You Hatters!

    If you want unprofessional photos try this pair from the Rising Sun and one service that we might all need

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    Ah, yes. It turns out is was Alan H's jacket. Looks like he's trying to sneak my pen or possibly even my beer.
