Lazing On A Sunny Afternoon

I didn't watch the England-Germany match. It was a sunny day, so I sat in the yard and read about the execution of Louis XVI. Louis was a lousy politician but a man of personal courage and dignity. He made a good show on the scaffold- just like Charles I. After a while I heard whistles and cheering and assumed England had scored- and so they had- only Germany had already scored twice- with two more to come. Frankly, I'm not surprised. Later I watched Ray Davies (on the BBC) singing his biggest hits at Glastonbury- on the pyramidal stage, with the Tor on the skyline. We may be useless at football, but we're really good at pop music.
