On tour with FredDee's sweaty orbs.

As I am on holiday I have started on the latest jack reacher. The first chapter he meets seven (7) hells angels from whom he requires some information. Spoiler tag in case you haven't read it yet.

reacher wins the fight by inflicting a series of ghastly injuries on the knees and groins of his hapless opponents including at least one headbutt.

Did he try asking nicely first?

"Excuse me, where's the gents' loo?"

Ricolas - 25 Apr 2019 15:18:22 (#25 of 2009)

...right in the orbs...

Well that sounds delightful.

I'll stick to red wine, thanks.

Also, DON'T!

That's a pout alright.

helenskywalker - 25 Apr 2019 15:40:31 (#30 of 2009)

Why "a mum"?

LippyPongstocking - 25 Apr 2019 15:52:56 (#31 of 2009)

Well, it is the Metro, which is part of the Daily Mail group, and they love to characterise women so people can JUDGE them.

I do sometimes think Reacher could avoid having to break everyone's knees all the time just by being a little more polite in his questioning.

Ricolas - 25 Apr 2019 15:58:27 (#33 of 2009)

It might be her primary job*, and also she refers to the effect it might have had on her kids.

* or Lippy is right.

I accidentally caught some of the Cruise Reacher film the other day.

No.No.No. No. No.

Jack Reach Around.

nemo75 - 25 Apr 2019 16:04:53 (#36 of 2009)

He’d need something to stand on.

slicey - 25 Apr 2019 16:11:04 (#37 of 2009)

I imagine Reacher gets really tired of the Reach Around joke.

My sister is doing the genealogy thing. As well apparently as well as being Lancashire royalty by bing related to Johnny Ball I am related to this chap: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Marsh_(mart

That’s exciting. My dad’s family were in the cotton trade.

HollyGolightly - 25 Apr 2019 17:05:06 (#40 of 2009)

slicey - my Dad is very disappointed with the latest Jack Reacher. I have low expectations so they never disappoint me.

I'm home to start my second shift of the day - to reach the PRA and FCA's business plans and create some sort of interesting blog post out of them...
