Season's greetings

Long range posting forecast: occasional light showers possible towards the end of next week, otherwise remaining dry until mid-January.

The seasonal spirit has not quite reached Mr Grumpy yet, and he won't let me sign off without telling you that my Mum, travelling to us bearing a jar of her home-made marmelade, had it unceremoniously removed from her hand luggage at Gatwick yesterday. Marmelade doessn't actually seem to be mentioned in the list of forbidden substances, but doubtless the security man would, if pressed, have argued that it is 'of similar consistency' to hair gel. Which may be true of some marmelades, but emphatically not my Mum's.

Says Grumpy, she's obviously just the kind of suspicious character they need to keep a an eye on, as opposed to murderers fleeing the country in Islamic drag.

Enough! I wish all readers peace and blessings this Christmastide.

Of course, on the positive side you can count the fact that somebody (maybe the security man in question himself) will enjoy the marmalade after all. Or even better, that it will go to some charity.

On the other hand, if you are addicted to home made marmalade... no, enough stepping on toes ;-)

Merry Christmas, Cyrus, and same to Grumpy.

I don't think it would have been very appetizing after the controlled explosion...

Reciprocal greetings, Snoop!
