07:48 am: Just leaving Chester
The evening started well, as Debbi and I worked together to run the
evening service. Mark 11. Forgiveness, faith, effective and specific
prayer. Then back home for coffee, sausage and chips. And Lewis.
Matthew asked whether Keble had ever featured in Morse. Apparently
Kershaw was supposed to be a Keble history graduate, while the episode
Settling in the sun was apparently set there.
Anyhow, an early start this morning proved to be not quite early
enough, as I ran to the platform in time to see the train pull away
from it. But that didn't matter, as the 07.15 out of Chester is
cancelled anyway! Misleading signs at Hooton suggested that the local
train to Chester would be very late, but in fact it arrived on time.
We are assured that there will be a train for us waiting at Crewe
Station. This has been the case before. Platform 6. I'm sure it will
be fine. It's a cold morning, but the sun is shining brightly. Today
is the first working day of March. Our bank seems to run a parallel
calendar, where days in a month are numbered as working days. This is
much better than another bank, which also had a WD calendar, but
didn't seem to allow for weekends in the first half of the month. But
that was the bank that put stickers on charts on the wall as a
motivational tool. It didn't seem to work so well, possibly because
this was a bank, not a kindergarten.
I'm very grateful that my current bank doesn't do this. So here I am,
just over 1400 characters into this post, and rapidly approaching
Crewe. Be seeing you!

Heh, that's like our Principal one year at my children's primary school, giving out end-of-year appreciation certificates to each of the teachers, at a public parents' night. Very embarrassing.

Lewis was Chief Inspector Morse's sergeant. After Morse died, he was promoted to Inspector. "Lewis" is now in its second series on British TV, starting at 9pm on Sundays. If you watched Morse on TV, you'll already know Lewis. If TVNZ isn't showing Lewis yet, write and ask them why not.

That was me, wrestling with the www connection on a train.

Heh, I know your tone by now

I never really liked Lewis much. Then again, I didn't like Morse that much either! He irritated me. So I probably won't be asking *g*
