Idle Physical Culture in the 17th century

Post by Harry Hayfield » Mon Aug 19, 2019 9:16 pm

Towards the end of 2020, BRB International and Apolo Films (both based in Spain) will be releasing a CGI reboot of the Dogtanian cartoon based on the tales of the Three Musketeers. Unlike the original books, however, their version of Athos is the strongman and Porthos is far more slender than in the books. I am pleased to say that in the reboot this has been rectified so that their version has a bit more muscle on him and even more pleased to state that in the latest scene to be published on social media, Porthos is engaging in a little physical culture (although whether he should be doing it at the dinner table is a matter of debate)

Well Harry, better curling the DBs rather than the wine glass. Although there is nothing wrong with a wine glass curl every now and then.BTW how is your training coming along?

In a nutshell, terribly, not only have I got a pulled muscle from helping my grandmother up out of her chair (despite telling everyone in officialdom that the strain I had when I did it on the 8th would develop into it, which it did on Monday evening) but because the council's supposed care package hasn't started (even though it was supposed to have done so by now), I don't know whether to ring the dentists I am supposed to be going to next Tuesday and say "Sorry, I can't, there's no one to look after my grandparents!"

Sorry to hear this Harry.Never fun dealing with bureaucracy, especially when they are always doing cut backs on things that are really needed and dragging their heels.Hope for resolution soon.
Regards,Peter.
