Skipton

Off for a day out on Saturday with the good lady. Haven't been for a while. Your thoughts? On Skipton, not the good lady.

If you go via Ilkley, stop at Booths supermarket has a fantastic range of bottled beers and is good for sleb spotting.

A great day out, saw the pie shop just after I'd eaten, bugger.

Serfer Dawg, went in The Castle pub, but it had that cleaning fluid smell hanging in the air, so ferked off.

Castle was impressive, worth £6, had no idea of all the Civil War siege/history involved with the Castle.

Higgs, The Brewery was a bit out of town, and we were on the train, so we left it.

The canal walk was great, weather a bit iffy like.

No, we ate in 'Herriots' near the station. Not too cracking.

Dock you really are a fecking idiot! That's like Sister Wendy travelling to the Louvre in Paris, only to browse the postcards on sale in the gift shop.

I think he gets over exited when he leaves Leeds, it's akin to the young Bull and the elder Bull that were perusing a field of buxom bovines, it was said that the enthusiastic youngster suggested galloping over to the other field and each partaking in one of the said buxom bovines.  The elder Bull with his years of knowledge lambasted the young scamp and instead proffered the alternative which was to leisurely stroll over and have their wicked way with them all.

I'm afraid in this instance Dock had no calming influence from an elder statesmen and instead shot his load into the first cafe he saw upon leaving the station.

Mr Bearing - I assume that you do not take the Craven Herald and therefore do not realise how close to the truth you are.

Headline news -

"Offcumden Shoots Load and Leaves in Shocking Skipton Station Cafe Kerfuffle" - "Old Lady Faints"

Christa "perma-glow" Ackroyd wants to interview him on Look North to get his side of the story.

We'll never hear the end of it.

Cheers bearing. Is there a emoticon for shooting coffee out  of ones  nose. If there were, I'd use it here.

Good Lord, he should really be escorted on his trips out.

To be fair we should have seen the signs, what with his shenanigans in Asda.

Lady O, the teenage Ladyettes O and I were in Skipton today.

Hot on the heals of Mr Dock's disgrace in the station restaurant, we were shocked by the headlines in this week's Craven Herald, as proclaimed on the newspaper vendor's advertising hoarding on Sheep Street.

"Skipton's Costa Coffees Close Call".

(I'm sure that the many journalists who frequent this board will be doffing their caps at the imperious, magisterial beauty of the alliteration, though frowning at the poor use of the apostrophe....)

Assuming that these were further reports of further refreshment establishment-based shenanigans not previously admitted to by Mr Dock via the medium of Reg, I attempted to purchase a copy of Skipton's local organ of record, but was beaten back by the frenzy of blue rinsed coiffured ladies who were even more beguiled by the headlines.

Fortunately via the magical medium of the interweb, I found "Casting vote is a bitter blow for Costa Coffee. A trendy coffee chain has narrowly missed out on its second attempt in 18 months to open a shop in Skipton."

http://www.cravenherald.co.uk/new...s_a_bitter_blow_for_Costa_Coffee/

"Costa Coffee’s plans were previously rejected by planners in the summer of 2007 and the decision was upheld on appeal. Fierce critic Coun Marcia Turner (Cons) said the bid should be thrown out again as it undermined the council’s policy to reject applications for new cafés on the ground floor."

In counterargument, Coun Roberts said: “Costa Coffee could be somewhere cool for teenagers to meet their friends. Other coffee shops in the town are just not cool enough.”

Well Coun "down wiv da kidz in da hood" Roberts, I will be blunt - this is Skipton we are talking about.

Home of the Skipton Building Society - a rarity - a solvent financial institution; an emporium solely devoted to selling socks; a damned fine market; a top quality pork pie seller; and more retailers of outdoor-wear than you can shake a stick at.

So Coun Roberts you can ram (did you see what I did there, seemlessly linking to the plans for an establishment on Sheep Street?) Costa Coffee, and any other purveyors of over-priced of hot caffeine-based drinks, up where the sun don't shine.

And I don't mean Keighley.
