59 pubs for the month, my best 2022 tally and third best ever .... and I would easily have broken my record of 61 if it hadn't been for a demonic combination of wedding do and dentist (not at the same time).
Talking of 'BRAPA crappers', another train strike on Saturday (and next Wednesday, and I think the Saturday after that) is threatening to put the brakes on my penultimate BRAPA holiday of 2022, in a county I have zero ticks in. Have you guessed what it is yet? I'm very excited anyway. Can my liver handle eight consecutive days BRAPing? It's just going to have to sup up and shut up innit?!
I also managed three pre-emptives this month, all of which are a bit Richard Griffiths (pie in the sky, please keep up) , yes my jaw will be on the floor if any of them appear in the next GBG.
Speaking of which, not long now .... I'm predicting the week commencing 17th Oct, it may be sooner, you never know. I've heard there can be a lot of tedious waiting around when you're on jury service. Cross-ticking mid trial? A new book is much needed anyway, as the front cover which had been hanging by a thread finally fell at the very nice Ship Centurion, Whitstable.

Makes me kind of thirsty for the month ahead seeing those photos again. Sober October? Could never be me. See you in a weird location on Saturday, if I make it.
