It's too hot to rewrite everything but its been a lovely weekend, we got a sit in the garden and this afternoon popped along to the first flower festival at St Lawrence church in Over Peover and had a chat we the 'other' side of the village which also is home to The Dog our pub restaurant of choice over the past year and during the hiatus of the kitchen renewal about to enter its fourth week. Scenes from this afternoon at St lawrence. Tomorrow I'm off with Tom and Jane plus any others of the team on a 12 mile walk as we ramp up our practise for the July epic from Northumberland to Cheshire.
Amongst the displays at St Lawrence is the William Morris window which is signed by Wm Morris and the flag with the General Patton display is that left to the church when he left for the D Day landing and thus the display is Saints and heroes , St Lawrence being an early Christian martyr and the US troops the heroes. He also paid for his flowers at his table at the Whipping Stocks pub to be put out after his departure, a tradition carried out to this day. For a man nick named blood and guts he obviously had another side to his character.
I've downloaded all the China trip photos to be edited ready to file but there are now over 30k photos waiting and another 20k ready to put up on the Smugmug site.
