They're coming to take me away, ha ha
I've suspected for some time now that I'm losing it. In fact my heartless, ungrateful children tell me this process has been going on for years. But today I got incontrovertible proof. I was out for a ride on my mountain bike, cruising some gentle tracks on the northern outskirts of Masterton on a gloriously sunny winter afternoon. Approaching the top of a hill, I decided to take another route that went off to my right. There wasn't a vehicle within hundreds of metres and only one other human being, a distant walker, in sight. And suddenly I realised I had extended my arm to indicate I was turning.
