Bother! [Jul. 22nd, 2013|10:58 am]
Tony Grist
A loud, disembodied female voice announced we'd lost mains electricity. After much ringing round and testing of fuses, we found the washing machine was to blame. We might have guessed. Last time we ran it it sounded like it was shaking itself to bits on the spin cycle. Going through the paperwork, I find my mother and father bought it 20 years ago.  As Ailz remarked," Nothing's built to last these days."

That could be the first sentence of an M. John Harrison fragment.

It was quite disorientating when it happened.

This has nothing to do with your subject, but I thought you might be interested in this piece on a historic house near your old Philly stomping grounds:

Thank you.

Nice house. I like the story about the bridegroom being hidden from the British.

It says it's right across the street from St. James Kingsessing. I'll have to go look it up and see what "across the street" means in this context.
