I did quite a bit of travelling while I was researching my unputdownable latest masterpiece of feline literature ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ and sometimes the road was dark and dangerous, you know the type of road I mean one where the gravel from it falls off when your tyres come close to edge and then tumbles down a cliff face for hundreds of feet into oblivion.

But not all roads are like those ones in Britain, where there are misnamed pot holes (they really should be called ravines), no a lot of the roads I travelled on were wonderful, neat, nicely made and great to drive on, although that could be because the countries that have those roads either don’t have the traffic because most of the population can’t afford to drive like India or they reduce the number of drivers on the road by predijuice by not allowing women to drive as they do in the most backward of countries like Saudi Arabia.

Just interrupting myself for a moment, and my dear faithful readers know I do that a lot and to be honest probably expect it of me, I have found that women drivers are much better than their male counterparts, I was once driven from a racetrack in the middle of Kent (Brands Hatch) to London by an English lady F1 racing driver called Divina Galicia and it was wonderful, she drove the car in a way that I don’t think many could, it was exciting, fun and well within most of the laws of the land.

Still this blog isn’t about drivers, male or female, it’s about a lorry that I saw on the roads in Britain, a country that was once really nice and is now as filthy as this lorry’s bottom. As the tile says someone really should wash their lorry – before the truth comes out!

If you look as closely at this picture as I have you’ll no doubt see that in order to write in the filth covering the lorry’s rear whoever wrote the little jokette had to clean some of the scank off amazing!

Still they do say that individuals are to be treasured and you would have to be an individual to drive a lorry like this and get a nickname like ‘Rapid Ray.’

Someone Should Wash Their Lorry

Just in case you would like to buy my latest masterpiece of feline literature or if, god forbid, you are one of the uncool few who haven’t bought my previous work of genius here are some links that will whizz you off at a click to those nice humans at www.amazon.com who can send you a copy in return for either your own money or if you can arrange it someone else’s, I have always found that using someone else’s cash is to be preferred.

My loyal fans might remember that back in July I mentioned on my wonderful blog here http://blog.thecatsdiary.com the NASA Face In Space Program which those amazing people at NASA and this peerless genius of a Cat had created so that you can send a picture of your extremely good self (and or a friend) into Earth orbit on board that wonderful thing called the Space Shuttle.

Well just to give you an up date the https://faceinspace.nasa.gov/index.aspx launch dates have been updated and can be viewed either below or by clicking this pretty blue link which will whisk you at the speed of either sound or light (depending upon your internet connection) or looking at the copy of the page that you will be whisked to below.

Of course this means that you still have time to join in and get your https://faceinspace.nasa.gov/index.aspx place if you see what I mean!

I really do recommend that you join in because this is probably the last opportunity to get into space safely for us ordinary folk, you could always take a chance on the Virgin Space Plane if you have hundreds of thousands of dollars spare and any faith what so ever in the blond Richard Branson’s efforts. But frankly you only have to look at his F1 Team Virgin Racing to see just how well Virgin build anything that is supposed to be beautifully designed sleek and fast.

Mind you the poor 3-legged Virgin Racing team came into the F1 Racing series like a lion, with press releases, TV appearances, trumpets, fireworks, dozens of partly clad young ladies (who may or may not have lived up to the brand name) and so much more, with the blond beardy fella shouting his mouth off on radio and TV about how he was going take the established teams on and beat them at their own game but at the same time spend less money (billionaires don’t tend to like dipping into their pockets of course).

If finishing last or nearly last if they finish at all in F1 races is what the ‘established’ teams have been doing all these years the blond beardy one has succeeded and must be congratulated but this Cat is not a moron and tends to think that Virgin and Hi Tech don’t go together, maybe Virgin should stick to Spas and phones – oh sorry I forgot those endeavours have been sold off.

All of which suggests to this wary Cat that the best place for the $50-100 grand needed for a few minutes in space is better kept in your bank, surely it is safer to read all about the possible failure of the Virgin Space Plane than to be part of it!
