A bit more fun at Xmas
At the Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival 2018
Wallace and Gromit, Morph etc.
If you know Exeter you’ll recognise these. (Been kicking heels in Exeter. . . )
Kicking my heels all day in Exeter? No thanks.

The best laid plans . . .

Strange what more you don’t forget.
Haven’t forgotten this.
Some memories of work while I can still remember.

Things happen. Sometimes I write about them.
Adventures with ‘Lemon Fizz’.
An every day story of car paint colours.
People often mention tempering but have no idea what it means.
A gentle stroll across fields of wild flowers and a declaration of war.
My first car -
You have to laugh . . .
Can’t find the key? What to do next if you don’t value your sanity.
A band, a car, an African tragedy.
Theatre was locked and abandoned. Had I gone on the wrong night?
Had a shower, towelled dry, decided to cut toe nails. What could possibly go wrong?
Ever looked at ‘The Angel of the North’? I mean, really looked at it?
