It could be that I am suffering from my delusions again, but I am sure I heard the weatherman saying earlier this week that it would be fine by Friday; I am sure he used the phrase 'Indian Summer.'

It's 'orrid outside. :tantrum:

Can't blame it on the Bobs - wrong sort of Indian.

I just cleaned my glasses and it still looks foggy outside. Can someone confirm fog before I go to the opticians with suspected cataracts.

The phrase 'Indian Summer' is often mistakenly thought to refer to the Indian subcontinent, in reality it refers to the Indians (more correctly called Native Americans) living in the Canadian wilds north of the Arctic circle, where, it will not surprise you to learn, it is effing cold.

So there you have it; 'Indian Summer' explained.

Next week on "Why, Wobby, why" I'll be looking at back-to-front phrases like 'believe you me'.

Perhaps it's been offshored, with or without Bob's help.

Probably. They always take the nice things away.


It's in Wales.

It was bound to be somewhere in the third world.

It's a bit misty here in London and the home counties, but that is usually a harbinger of settled weather. In fact, the sun is trying on a few hats as I speak.

Dont believe a word of it.
The weathermen are full of lies, they just heard it from a bunch of gossiping old dears queueing up outside the post office for their pensions. They still think its 1976. The Indian Summer rumour goes around every year in this way.

I love Ambrose And His Orchestra. I've even got an old vinyl album, but I can't find a digitised version of it.

It was brill at a National Trust place we went today today except that (thanks to you) I wore a jumper and was boiling hot. The missus wouldn't let me take it off because I had my disgusting holey old France World Cup 98 teashirt on underneath.

It was here all day yesterday & Saturday. :yay:

Today is looking good too.

I'm sure we shall pay for it later.

Doomed etc.

It was glorious weather here yesterday, and it appeared most people were out and about taking advantage of it. Jeggings aplenty.

But looking at the weather forecast for next week, we are facing over a 10 degree C drop in daily temperatures in the space of a week.
