In another charity shop found a video of that great Coen Brothers film "The Big Lebowski"- so not a bad day for bargains. Mind you, I think my arms have stretched an inch or so longer after carrying that weighty tome home!
Hazel and Archie are in the garden as I write this filling up the green wheelie-bin for tomorrows "recycling" day - once a fortnight they come to collect our garden rubbish, bottles, cans and paper. Hazel is burning the card, which they don't take (for some weird reason?) in the mexican pot-bellied stove. It's making a fine plume of smoke and flame in the twilight.
