By Merse standards Mr Fish has sent us a stinking hot day. Even the Harvest mites are sheltering in the shade. We will seek some relief amongst the ice cream vans of theBerwickshire Show-avoiding the prize bulls and the axe throwers who will be following the Scottish Dancers-but 'not too closely ' as the leading dancer is reported to have said. This is the farmers day out and the Beer tent will do a roaring trade. Fortunately this is too near England to attract the telegraph pole tossers and other Highland exhibitionists. Photos later. If I am spared.
