DR Faustus I Presume?
We escaped from 31C in steamy Lunnon to arrive (20 minutes-slight inconvenience regretted-technical problem near Thetford)in dreich bound Berwick and felt our uncertain way back to Duns. Cold and misty there as well.
Inquired about the weather at the newsagents-still very misty this morning; guy getting the Torygraph was not impressed about my account of the Tropic of Edmonton and unbearable life threatening conditions on the Charing Cross Road. Pensioners advised to stay indoors from 11 to 4, carry at least 8 bottles of drinking water, dehydrating alcohol, tea and coffee to be avoided etc etc.
'Huh' he said; 'That's London' Got to expect that' He mopped his brow with the Business Section, and shuddered.
'Duns' he said.
'Yesterday' he said
'Afternoon' he said
' It was' dramatic pause ' 20.5C'
'Hell out There'
and started to feel his way home
(Thankyou Ben Harper for your flickr image of a pub in Hackney; picture the scene outside the Black Bull at 4pm yesterday-if you dare)
