Cold November Rain. Cornwall better/wetter.

17 Nov

TV news quickly expanded their attention beyond Fowey to Saint Austell, this morning, and as I arrive back from shopping, with a leaky shoe and hat wet through, they are on about flooding all over the place.

The usual whingeing Pom talk about how the carpet and the suite stinks, and how it has never been worse. No word about why the Hell they did not sell and let some other sucker take the muck.

At the supermarket,  I took a moment to educate the young gent how to give change to my tenner. Moaning and muttering from the low life oiks in back of the queue accompanied the session.

Fifty-two years ago, it was, at Boyes, Ouse Bridge, that Mrs Worthington showed me to put the coins into the customer’s palm and the ten bob note twixt their thumb and fore-finger, a pound note having been tendered.

I forgot to mention in a very recent Post, earlier this morning, that my father’s mother was Devonian by birth, and her mother Cornish. It is good to see that there is no drought in the old roots land.

All the daily newspapers at the local convenience store have Royal Engagement all over the front page. I bet there are a dozen inside pages similarly chocka with it. Good for them!

The print medium badly needs another Royal story. Saved for another few years! Royal Wedding. Royal Babies. Royal School Days. Royal Tweets…

    Mrs Brotherton, I now recall, was the correct name.
