A boy and his bike.
Here's Archie on his bike, ready for the off. This was taken last year as you can see the old shed still crumbling in the background.
Hazel is back from her London jaunt with some posh new jeans and some earrings by a famous maker from the Crafts Council shop but I've forgotten who. She'd also bough that excellent big catalogue from the Prinzhorn collection of psychotic art that was shown at the Hayward Gallery some years ago and she's always wanted a copy. They had them for half price at the Hayward shop. Some wonderful illustrations in it. She had gifts for us too including a lovely Edward Gorey children's book for Archie about a maggot and a roll of skeleton sticky tape for me.
She popped round to see Jane & Graham who both looked well she said and had just come back from Greece. Cooper's was shutting but managed to grab a few words with Cheryl before she went home.
Hopefully we can get down to London before the end of the Summer to see our friends and family and the Rebecca Horn exhibition at the Hayward that is very good Hazel said.
Here's a couple of jolly songs from the heyday of British music hall and variety between the wars.
Leslie Holmes - I've Gone and Lost My Little Yo Yo
Charlie Higgins - Charlie's Saxaphone
