Well it's been a boring night in the pub...

...well apart from the strangest dude I've ever seen in there being present!

He comes into the pub looking something like Otto (the bus driver) from the Simpson's - with big head phones and baseball cap - he was somewhat older (being in his mid-fifties according to him). OK, so this doesn't seem that odd - it's what he was saying that he was odd.

Apparantly, he comes to the pub once a year (on the bank holiday Monday at the end of August) to watch the sun come through the gap between the doors. It's powerful stuff this sunlight, apparantly. Gives you energy and a big sense of well being. He got me to put my hand in the beam - and sure enough a big smile came to my face. "See, you're happy," he told me. I didn't tell him it was because I was trying not to laugh at him!

One of the regulars then told the landlord that he was going to lamp him because he was so annoying! "If he talks to me once more, you're gonna have to bar me, cause I'm going to smash him". This coming from one of the usually more docile regulars too.

According to someone else, last year on his trip he was doing some crazy dancing at the bar whilst listening to his stereo. Funny man. Can't wait until next year!
