Friends reunited

Steve & Geri, 21/7/21

If you ask me, one of the most damaging consequences of The Great Fear is that it has driven a bulldozer through our close social bonds.

Steve ponders, 11/9/15

A last burst of September sun illuminates the tables outside the Railway, typical haunt of a Friday evening after work, where the accumulated clientele ponder their forthcoming weekends. Steve makes at least his 7th appearance on this blog and is the most-featured individual outside (in this order) Joe, Clare and myself. Which is a sign that we’re often in the same place — the aforementioned Railway…
