Most Thursdays, along with my good friends Don and Pat, I go for a bit of a jaunt in the car through the highways and byways around York. We take coffee and a bite to eat and we put the world to rights: a Last Of The Summer Wine-type day out.
Last Thursday, out near Sledmere, we decided to go down a single track road to one of our favourite picnic spots.
On going a short way down the road, I spied two racehorses with riders, followed by a small convoy of cars coming towards us. Pulling over and turning the engine off, we sat and waited.
To my surprise, one of the horses and rider (with his head down) just kept coming straight towards us. At the last moment he looked up, swung around the car and then, head back down to his phone.
Believe it or not he was sending a text!
