Welcome and un-PC screen-savers
I haven't much time for a wordy blog right now, but since I have had at least 2 frantic emails from bloggers who are wondering if I am still alive because I missed one post yesterday, I will put up a few pictures from Thomas and my trip to see an old friend in the Cotswolds. This is the 'welcome' sign on the front gate of his delightful little cottage.
He has just hit 80 years old, but looks exactly the same as when he ran the legendary 'Paragon Bar' here in Bath, all those years ago. He lives in a village which is pretty much owned by his titled son in law, and it was wonderful to see him in such good condition and high spirits.
He has just got himself a lap-top, and has begun to learn about the world of the internet - he is picking it up very quickly, and sent me a test email yesterday which I opened when I got back to Bath. It read, 'Fuck off.'
His screen-saver picture above will give you an indication of his positive outlook on life as he sits in the rose-strewn garden, nestling in one of the prettiest villages in the area. I love it.
