Lots of curious but enjoyable things happened on Wednesday and I can't

potential, planes, pensiveness, pooches and pints.
1 Nice emails from friends all over the place (including my pal F from

2 Attended a funeral with my folks. It was a humanist service - no hymns, no
mention of the big man, but still a service of dignity and decency
3 Had a potter around the town where I grew up (not BS5) and just enjoyed

5 A couple of pints with my Dad and the chap next door in the evening (it had been his
6 Great dinner with the folks at home
7 My top pal Oopas texted me to say he had just landed at Stanstead Airport
and then watched Air Force 2 land right behind him. Cool!
8 A witty post about G-Dog, an American hound of my slight acquaintance
9 Rather fine chatter on google talk before bed.
