    The evening's 2nd feature is "Hard Cash".

    Hard Ca$h (2002) - IMDb

    So far it's not looking too promising.
    Speaking of Dirke Bogarde, I'm reminded that I've not watched "A Bridge too Far" in a few years. Might have to see if I have it somewhere.

    Back from the pub after an enjoyable session of avoiding the folksingers in the front bar

    No offence to the folksingers, but I'd heard all the folksinging-in-pubs that I needed by the time I was 30-odd, and I'm a tad older than that now

    I did a minor detour round the backstreets to dodge the beggars outside the fried chicken shop too. Shame for the shop, as I probably would have popped in if that lot hadn't been congregating outside.

    And again, no dislike of homeless people per se, but I know where that lot live, a few streets down in the block behind Wilkinson's and the Co-op. This suggests to me that they aren't homeless; and they've had a couple of years or more to sort their tulip out so they aren't desperate either

    Anyway, I now need to decide whether or not to have something to eat, and if so what

    Ooh! Fish finger bap (wholemeal)! Yum!

    And probably marginally better for me than the chicken shop, or donner meat and chips from the kebab shop up the road

    Fish finger bap (wholemeal) was very nice, and then I watched the first few episodes of Tin Star. As so often, the first (presumably "pilot") episode was excellent, then the next two teetered on the brink of cliché; one hopes it will manage to drag itself away therefrom

    I wonder who this "Howell" is that autocorrect so often tries to substitute for

    Goodnight all

    Morning.

    Wanly sunny.

    High clouds somewhat thicker than yesterday, hence the wanly.

    Dry.

    Warmish side of warmish.

    Barometer falling again.

    15mb down from Sunday.

    No Good Shall Come Of This.

    <hiatus during which I discovered I'd forgotten the jeans on the line>

    Naturally enough some kind feathered friend had crapped all over said jeans so they're in the wash again.
