Day 166 A hot presence in a cold garden.
My old schoolfriend, Mary (a teacher librarian at a girls' school) came around today. We had lunch at Earthly Pleasures and came back to my place where we chatted on into the afternoon. We decided that our old school teachers were fairly ordinary - teaching standards have thankfully improved over the years. After I waved Mary goodbye I noticed the red hot pokers glowing at the end of our driveway - the sheep was keeping away from its fiery aura too.
