Own up if it is you
The entire Board, plus a quorum of members at the pub's first AGM, held in the Spiegeltent currently up and running for the Bath Fringe Festival, but soon to be dismantled and returned to mainland Europe.
These marquees were popular in Germany at the turn of the 19th century, and the first one to come to Bath was reputedly a venue for Marlene Dietrich. It was much prettier than this one, but I don't think we could afford it any longer. They come on a lorry with driver and helper, and cost - I think - £40k a go.
Changing the subject a little, I was walking down the street the day before yesterday and I passed a very tall woman (I am pretty sure it was a woman, anyway) and as we were alongside, she licked her lips in a theatrically lascivious way whilst staring straight into my eyes. My first response was nervous laughter, and she laughed as well.
About 30 feet further along, I stopped to turn around and look at her again, and she had done the same thing, but with a very provocative smile on her face.
I was hoping and praying that she was a tourist - she had a camera - but when I was leaving the supermarket at around 9.00 am this morning, she was coming in. She gave me another knowing look, but I don't know what she knows that I don't.
I am a bit worried. She is about the same height as me, but heavier built, younger and probably fitter. I don't think I could outrun her.
