A Few Lines [May. 11th, 2011|09:01 am]
Tony Grist
Odi gave us some Avon stuff to give to Samina next door. I went round in the evening and rang Samina's bell and said, "Avon lady calling"

We had a bad day on Monday with Ailz's father. He can barely walk. We took him to the doctor's for some blood tests and he's been diagnosed with an infection (whatever that means) and given antibiotics.

I'm reading R.K. Narayan.  Thus far I've read The Painter of Signs and The Guide. He and Graham Greene were mates. Narayan is Hindu the way Greene was Catholic.  Both are entertainers, both have this spiritual hinterland that stretches back and back.
The BBC showed the whole of the Dr Who serial The Hand of Fear over a couple of nights in tribute to Elisabeth Sladen. It was very ropey, very sweet.

I have to smile at your "Avon calling"....that takes me back to my childhood.
I'm sorry to hear about Ailz' dad. Have they decided to move?

They haven't decided anything. I think they'll keep putting it off and putting it off.

Wow. I had no idea Elisabeth Sladen was dead until just now.

The Hand of Fear is a good one, especially that last scene between her and Tom Baker. I heard the two of them came up with their own dialogue for it, which I'm inclined to believe because it's so warm.

That makes sense. The farewell scene is genuinely moving.

To go with Narayan, you may want to pick up a book of cartoons by R.K. Laxman. Laxman summed up Narayan's stories in cartoons.

Sorry to hear about Ailz's dad. I hope the medication is helping him.
Love to you and Ailz

It's a bit early for results, but I think it bucks him up to know the problem is being treated.
