I think the 500's will have less and less to do with points and more to do with being match fit and not leaving too much time between events.
As for myself I've become addicted to cycling which will last as long as the good weather does, I find relaxes me and lets get some quality thinking done.
I have never been fat but with extra exercise I have had to go from a size 32” to a 30 waist in my jeans so it must be doing me some good, unfortunately if it keeps up I may have to buy a new kilt.
I’ve also been on a lot of long weekends to different towns and areas within Germany (Nürnburg, München, Berlin, Hamburg) and now that the fußball is back I go to Bundesliga games.
I do pop in to read MW at least once a week but rarely post.
You could easily be right about being match fit - it'll be interesting to see what actually transpires.
Ooooh ..... sounds like you are getting into great shape yourself. 30" waist is pretty skinny! Can you not just have your kilt altered? I also thought you had a new "serious" girlfriend .... is that still on the go?
Sure do miss your wit ......
