PV went well on Thursday night. Quite a few people - more than expected considering it was a Thursday and very wet. Some folks came as far afield as London, Fife and Cardiff. One old Southend Art School chum I hadn't seen for over 50 years turned up, so that was nice.

Not sure why they have a blog post here? I guess you can write what you want. Any gibberish will do. Duffle coats through the mail? Yes, I have never tried I must confess. Wearing them seemed much preferable. I have worn many over the years. A green one, a beige one with wooden toggles, and the black one I have now which is a bit worse for wear - fraying at the cuffs. I need to look out for a new one. Maybe treat myself this Autumn.

My last Auntie - Auntie Olwen was laid to rest today. She always had good stories to tell. Little anecdotes about life back in the old days when I was knee high to a packyderm. She told me this story several times over the years and it always made me smile about the time I was living at her house just after the war, well, early 50's I would guess. When my parents were looking round for a place to rent, we relied on generous relatives to put us up in the spare… Continue
