    Hi Mike, sorry for my last post, I think I was 'excited'- being off work an' all. A Good Man In Africa was so much fun, & I read so many of his, and then became disillusioned and raged about my dislike of Boyd - round about - I can't remember - ...

    Hi Mike, Definitely your suffragette aunt has a lot to answer for. Who exactly wasted the family fortune on gin & port, & which one of your bastards hawked/sold the entire family estate in Yorkshire in 1920? These are my words to my wife during ...

    Hi Mat, its Dolly, and I'm still waiting for you to rescue me from the fog when you were a Beach God, and that was at the end of May! My beard is now even bushier than it was before and is now just below my collar bone. I've had to replace the ...

    A cracking tale. "like adolescence, like my 1983 revisited" - a great line. So much said in so few words.

    Hi Dolly, I'm afraid so, yes. I have a manageable Radio 4 habit, and I dabble in 5, but yet to plunge the full Radio 3 wanker.

    Hi Mike - behind Southwark cathedral is a house with a plaque - and an inscription/or I read it in a book ... ...’Wren’s house during construction of S P cathedral...’ and that Wren was ‘rowed to work’ each morning :).

    Isn't it one of those places that deserves a second blink? We lived in Pevensey for a while - that was similar/like Dungeness

    Yes, I like your writes when you go exploring, Mike, they're very satisfying. More please. Would you write about the South Bank, Southwark even - that stretch up toward Wren's house? I do like Shoreham-on Sea. I surfed there a bit when I was a ...

    I think so. I think my young girl voice is a competition favourite. And probably one for the Pushcart people as you probably suggest without quite saying so. Thank you. Yours deserves a second viewing, I will be back.

    I liked YOUR one, D.

    I'd quite like another go - and write more of a Star Wars peow peow, peow peow epic. A great theme really - Dystopia sets me off every time.

    Thanks for that, my darling! I often wondered how it happened. I salute your utter magnificence, illustrious commander of the prose skies! Emperor of the subtle put-down, king of all you survey! I bow down before you, mighty Mat-ery, hoping one day you may deign to trample my excuse for a brain under your golden jackboot! All hail, Prince of Princes, Writer & Earth Mover of the other sort.

    Finally...found the Wall...yes NBA...look in the 'comments section' - to find my story - scrolling past the comments of my 'single reader' - the blogger's curse, always I have one reader, and she wants my address to send me a Xmas present. If I say no I'll have NO readers..
