07:39 am: I'm on the train
Good morning from Chester station.
A fairly quiet weekend. On Saturday, I bought some new shoes. This was
long overdue as there was pretty much no grip left on the old ones.
Yesterday was quiet too. After the morning service, lunch at home, a
turkey roast, and to watch the game. It's hard when the referee seems
to be playing for the home team.
Also, apparently Dalglish spoke out against this in no uncertain
terms. I expect he'll be fined for it.
By far the most exciting game was Stevenage 3 Newcastle United 1. This
was a fascinating game and an amazing result, especially a goal at
each end in the dying minutes.
But now it's up early, back on the train and the regular cycle of bank
regulatory reporting again.
The other thing to note is that I really should finish reading To Kill
a Mockingbird this week.

Is this the first time you have read it, Ian ?

We did it for O levels in English Lit, but it is really a good story, well told and with a powerful social message.

Good luck with the bank regulating, and my regards to Viv and the rest of your family. Tomorrow, I am back to keeping the Underground runing - fun, fun, fun...

Yes, first time.
Our school didn't do Eng Lit in those days.

To Kill a Mockingbird *sigh* good story, good writing. I read it to Christy when she was about ten or eleven. Then when her class read it at college they were all amazed to think I'd read it to her... "last book my parents read to me was Cat in the Hat!" said one.

I think it had a strong influence on the Lovely Bones...

and the old joke: Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
That way if they get angry they will be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

Good for you, and good for them too.
Reading to children is one of the best things you can do for them -- but you knew that.
And there will be many schools where it is cheerfully banned for no reason other than the fact it contains the "n-word".
