Ross has a strange thing about going out of town for birthdays. Since I've lived here we have always gone somewhere for our birthdays, and have developed an interesting way of picking where we go for Ross'.
2010 in the Lake District/Ulverston
2011 in Blackpool
2012 in Caerphilly
I'll give you a hint:
with Stan & Ollie
with Les Dawson
with Tommy Cooper
Yep. We go somewhere that has a statue of a comedian. Ross is a bit of a comedy historian and it's a been a pretty good way to pick a place to go. The only real problem with this year's trip was the shocking lack of Caerphilly cheese available in Caerphilly! Ross was very excited to get some, but there was none to be found. How very disappointing! It turns out that more Caerphilly cheese is now made in Lancashire.
Here's the birthday boy with his pride and joy.
Don't worry, we weren't letting Linus drive.
This is while we were stopped at The Services on the way home.
So does anyone have a nomination for next year's trip/statue location?
