Today's story is that Mr Jones (or Jonesy to his close friends) has been castrated. Not a pleasant experience (I imagine), and from Mr Jones' behavior: definitely exhausting. He looks confused, lost, sore, and unsure about food. But he will receive plenty of affection over the coming days, and I'm sure everything will soon heal up.

Now it is usual to post photos to add value to your blog's words, but as photos of Jonesey's privates perhaps should remain private, I plan to post a video (a video itself an experiment and a first in our blog) of Princess Lucy passing through Marple gauging point. Isn't that more interesting?
Now for those not in the know this is a length of canal where the width of the canal is just a dog's testicle wider than the boat. It is a bit like that wire loop game where you try to not make the buzzer sound when your loop hits the wire (you know what I mean). Well its kind of the same except you try to not let your boat touch the sides.
Anyway here is a video of Princes Lucy rather successfully negotiating said gauging point. And it's definitely much more interesting than Jonesey's testicles - which first mate has just reported "are going black." So while I Google whether that is normal, you can watch the video.
The accompanying music is "Slow Train," a song by Flanders and Swann from 1963
Its subject is the Beeching cuts.
