Presently in Paris with my 21yr old son. He and his buddy Jack signed up to run the Paris half-marathon. I was to be chief bag-man cum flag-man, cum water-bottle boy! Covid-19 put pay to that, so he’s gone back to Reims and College, and I’m out of a job! So tomorrow I take the fast train to Montpelier and ‘self-isolate’ for two weeks in the home Ted Simon, where, I might add, great efforts shall be made to unearth the sequel to Quondam. Thank you for all support and patience, especially Claire and Robin who took the book on their holidays to South Africa. They just sent a photo from top of the Sani Pass in Lesotho, a Pass you will all be reading about in Quondam Mark 2 .Btw, the Sani Pass is one of THE most dramatic passes in Africa @ over 2,800m Check it out on youtube, then imagine it on a bicycle!!!!
