Sultry Days and Sleepless Nights
I spent the afternoon making a compilation in response to the nice archive gleanings that Gordon sent over from Pennsylvania, where he now lives. He used to teach Ian Dury when he was a lad so a few comedy bits by him tacked onto the end which was nice to hear. He'd obviously been a big Peter Sellers and Goon Show fan!
Also the continuing transfer of VHS tape to DVD. Four hours of old Disney and Warner Bros. cartoons that Archie used to watch all the time when he was a nipper and obviously sunk in.
In the evening I made some quiche and humous ( not the rotted leaves!) and we had some salad and waffles.
They seemed to have enjoyed their swim. Hazel went off to shop and bought some strange sparkly shoes, the sort you might wear with a tiara!
It was nice at dusk to see the bats flying round the garden and the relative coolness - thunder rumbling ominously in the distance.
