So City Centre route it was, in the wet too. Thankfully without incident. I also got a lick on through Selly Oak too as usual, but I did keep a wary eye out when I passed Grange Road to be extra certain I wasn't going to get ambushed again.
The only incident of note was that I forgot to set my app for the stats, but my cycle computer said 38 minutes with an average of 16.2mph. I'll take that.
The dog show was a giggle yesterday, the kids had a ball and so did their parents. Although I'm not certain Benji the Pup did. He was pretty glad to be home, where he crashed out for the rest of the day.
But at his first and probably only dog show he won first prize for the dog with the saddest eyes! I didn't think they were that sad, more pissed off, but what do I know!
A photo record of the event here:
Spawn of Satan getting face painted.
Apparently that design is called a "Warg."

And coming first! Prize presented by local BRMB DJ Foxy (Don't listen to it myself).
Photo for the various web sites and newsletters. Dan, Liz and Foxy with Benji the Pup!
So a good and successful trip out for Benji, and the kids were kept busy for 2 or 3 hours. Job done.
