Juve mutterings (back from the brink)

17 December 2021

I have been out of sorts of late, due to an unexpected, certainly unwelcome, yet ultimately unavoidable motorcycle accident involving a three vehicle pile up in my intended direction of travel. Which has led to…a rather testing time all round. Throughout which however, supine demanded on a hospital bed, I kept track of Juve. Even […]
