Peals and Quarters

News from Gerald ...

Hi folks

Congratulations on finding my secret little spot on the Internet. Any time you are up in the bell tower, do leave some beer or Sambuca for me, which makes a nice change from my usual diet of acacia, mimosa, and wild apricot trees. Keep checking back for updates!

It's been a while - sorry. I had major surgery performed on by back after being abused at the last NUA. There are three ringing doctors who all "had a go". Thanks to James, Simon and George for the stitches - worried they might dissolve after more Sambucca. I woken up this morning with a hangover after the MUGCR 74th Annual Dinner, after spending a night in the arms of the new Ringing Master Amber Cusack. Not dared to make eye contact since waking up.

I've been kidnapped (again)! That nice new MUGCR ringing master Simon has pledged to rescue me. Sorry it's taken so long to update the blog but I had to transmit the message from my cell in morse code using my hooves...

Sunday October 27th 2019

I'm afraid I have to report that the ringers at Sacred Trinity left me locked outside my own tower on keep warm I had to sample a few Sambuca shots and I was discovered this Sunday morning lying upside with a hangover. Pleased to report I am now back in my tower and am contemplating the forthcoming NUA in Birmingham, Friday 8th - Sunday 10th November. I was excluded from the boat race last year because I couldn't hold a pint glass in my hooves - hopefully my recent Sambuca experience will help with the socialising this year.


Update October 21st 2019

Bit of a sad day today as my mate Mark is heading back to Australia. Hhere's the last picture of Mark on British soil (ok concrete) ...for now:Laters Mark  





Update April 2019

I now have a companion in the form of an inflatable giraffe called Jezzabelle. I am enjoying her company ;-)


April 2018

My good friend Sam introduced me to the MUGs back in 2016, and I've not left since.   I spend a great deal of time hanging around our home tower, Sacred Trinity in Salford. I like ringing, dancing and a good pint. I just need a companion.... :-(
