December 20th – Drinks at the Eagle

Several of us met up at the Eagle public house for a few pre Christmas drinks, this is an annual event that I always walk to. For those that do not know, the Eagle has to be the fore most if not only place to stock as many malt whiskeys as I have ever seen any where, real ale that will have you falling over should you try to sample it all and enough different ciders to leave you incapable. As always the talk was mostly on subjects that do not stand too close a scrutiny, it was noted by one of our number that a particular discussion on the fuel economy of modern motorcycles as opposed to speed did give an indication of the average age of the gathering. An excellent evening with even better company.
