This is the third week for Manx Queenie's comments on life and, as a Manx woman, I have to start with the TT Races which ended last Saturday. The weather for the most part was excellent, making for some good racing and adding to the total wins for Michael Dunlop, the whole thing only marred by a bad accident during the Senior TT on Friday afternoon. Most of those hit by flying objects, etc. were local people watching the bikes whizz along Bray Hill - it is a Bank Holiday for Manx folk every year - but nobody was killed, so the race was re-started later in the afternoon and finished without further incident. If that sounds rather callous, it is an unfortunate fact that as the course is so dangerous, there is always a risk of death amongst those bikers who haven't properly learnt every twist and turn of the mountainous roads.

To return to my previous subject and the promised mention of grand pianos and recalcitrant felines at Gunby Hall, near Skegness. The Bluthner grand piano in the music room is quite old and has been all the way to India and back but still makes quite a pleasant sound, so couple that with Manxiemo, who is also quite old and has been all the way beyond India and back, and people seem to be pleased by the harmonies the two music producers offer every Wednesday afternoon.

Regarding the two cats that live around the grounds of the Hall, the big Maine Coon keeps himself to himself and stalks around the gardens, waving his squirrel-like tail, but the female, known as Committee for some unknown reason, likes people and has been known to come into the Hall when nobody is looking. This is unfortunate, because if she is still there when the Hall is closed up, she sets the burglar alarms off and creates mayhem.
