Thanks folks.

I went out to see a movie actually. Good! Sold out seats. I got the last ticket. The two seats next to mine, well those folks never turned up. So I got to sprawl about, so to say. Small local cinema, so very sardine tin. You know: rubbing elbows ...

So, I feel that was a good outcome. Film Bohemian Rhapsody and 2hrs 10mins so better than Hollywood.

Godnight.

I also went to see Bohemian Rhapsody on my own.
Its good, but obviously has a sad ending.

We all end sadly but the point is the being enraptured, captured by the blessed thing of living.

Today, I had a hard-jolt back into a little Genealogical research when I recalled the copy of:

"The Ascent of Everest" which sat around for a long time, in the front porch, by my pram.


It had a more colourful jacket than this inner, I think, or was that 'Born Free'?

When I finally stopped pouring bottles of Quink ink over myself (so I was told);
I couldn't but notice that the author, Sir John Hunt, accompanying Hillary and Tenzing
was the Maiden name of my Mother. Everyone's dead now, I'm the last, but still ...;
And as I remember, being English, she came from Oxford, I think; the correct nook of the woods.

I think I'd better check. My whole life feels like climbing a mountain and tomorrow I meet
a mountaineer, who runs a mountaineering club in Fort William & Scotland, to support his family.
And I have a sit harness that used to belong to Chris Bonington, who tackled Everest at age 50.

I just don't know why my parents placed a book by Hunt, Mother's name, by my babies Pram.
We'll have to get to the bottom of this; or the top of it perhaps would be more of an achievement.

Holy Innocents, Foulsham

Foulsham is a large, handsome village, a small town really, just to the north of the main Norwich to Fakenham road. The road bypasses it by several miles, and you'd be unlikely to visit Fousham these days unless you actually wanted to come here

the huge memorial to Sir Thomas Hunt in the chancel, with his three wives, although not all at the same time, of course.
