And the first house of the Punch and Judy attracted a good audience.
(This post should have been put up on Monday morning and there should be a picture of Punch and Judy right here. Whether it is down to Blogger or my computer I know not, but I have been quite unable to upload the picture. It didn't help that I was off out to lunch today, a valedictory lunch for the retiring General Manager of the Lions Housing Society. Rest assured that neither she nor her successor have been or will be on the sort of salary level expected by managers of football clubs. I read that David Moyes, who is to succeed Sir Alex Wotsit at Manchester United and has been manager of Everton for 11 years, is leaving on a salary of £4 million. £4 million! And although Everton is a Premiership club, they have won no trophies for years. Ridiculous.)
But at four o'clock the rain started and the crowds drifted away. We got soaked clearing up. Surprisingly, when I glanced in the mirror at bedtime I saw a red face peering back at me. I had really caught the sun - or the wind.
