How do you fancy a long weekend, at the beginning of April? I'm going
out to Ace's place, and my regular board buddy has dropped out. I'll
be taking it very easy, and haven't been for two years myself, so
you'd not have to worry about remembering how to ride.

You're assuming he'd be welcome then?

Unfortunately this effin' credit crunch has ****ed my income stream up,
good and proper. Looks like I'll be looking for work of some sort or
another, to stop eating into my capital. Don't think a boarding trip
atm 'works' for me in that sense.

Ho hum, mebbe next year.

heh. I am aware that it's your place, not mine. But it was a bit
chicken and egg as to who I should ask first.

Hey, thanks, I'd love to! We'll bring the dogs too. I think I can swing
three weeks, since it's such a good season.

(What's with the subject line, btw? I almost missed this!)

Quite so. And if he's that hard up he can just do the cooking to avoid
eating out.

Whether we join him for dinner is another matter altogether.

He needs a better excuse, for sure. A weekend's boarding for, what,
around 150 notes? Where's the problem?
