It was a short illness and at 85 had a good innings i think .I was going to finish being a bailiff 3 or 4 years ago but he said if i stopped he would which i think would have finished him off very quickly as it was the only thing to get him out of the house for excercise (we walked his sons dog after rounds ,same track same time all weathers) so i promissed him all the time he could get to my house i would keep an eye on him on his 3 days (i do two as well) so i think we got a few more years out of the old guy lol.
I would have stopped immediatly but being the only number left in the permit decided to keep on until the new permit comes out in April incase some clot locked himself in ! (Not unknown) or needed info on how the pond is fishing etc.

Trouble is its time consuming on my two days the mornings gone as i walk down and back if we have to go to town its a mile walk back in the dark with no pavements this time of year,if i had my old honda it was no problem fitting it in but i cant afford to buy a motorcycle nowadays and i have tried a pushbike but destroy them very quickly on the track to the pond lol
As for excercise metal detecting will fill the bill from now to the summer starts so not a lot of difference as i am now a fair weather fisherman so can squeeze in the odd couple of hours a couple of times a weekonce the mrs has her newspaper and chockies in the summer when its not suitable to detect
The two weekend bailiffs will have to fight over positions but being fairly remote getting new bailiffs is difficult or more importantly bailiffs that turn up !
