0900: Dark and overcast but promises of the rain clearing later in the morning.We have had rain on and off each day for the past week. The first trucks have arrived and are parked in the wood yard opposite the main gates to the castle.
Born 1933, an overweight aged Blimp (though with Leftists tendencies). Wonderfully married to the ever patient Bernadette - four sons, one daughter, four grandsons, two granddaughters. Messed about most of my life, traveling, loafing, talking endlessly and finding excuses for not writing.
