Two Things That Happened Yesterday [Jun. 4th, 2014|08:56 am]
Tony Grist
My mother usually wakes shortly after seven- and we know she's stirring because she puts the radio on.  Yesterday she slept until I knocked on her door to summon her for breakfast at eight. I spent the time in between imagining conversations with the doctor and the undertaker.

Two awfully charming young chaps knocked on the door after lunch and tried to sell me a picture of the farm taken from a flying machine. They wanted £90 for it. I demurred and the price dropped- by stages- to £30- and finally (without the frame) to £20. I still demurred because what do I want with a picture of the farm from any angle? I know what it looks like and- besides- it's an ugly building.

Isn't there already an aerial photo of the farm in the downstairs toilet, or thereabouts?

There is.

It's 36 years old. The trees have grown a bit since then,

I'm very pleased that I paid £40 for a framed aerial photograph of my previous home. Yes, it was expensive, but I treasure it

We already have a couple of aerial photos of the farm- taken in 1978. One of them shows a crop circle I'd love to ask an archaeologist about...
