Mr Kelly, my literature teacher, lit a cigarette. Teachers could do that in those days. Mr Kelly even smoked in the classroom.
Good blog! Yes i am guilty of getting a bit flowery when i am composing a draft for some learned gentleman or woman, ( no misogyny around here ) that is why i use the North Noggering Gudgeon Consumers Email vetting service, They can convert something that has taken me sixty minutes to write into one sentance without getting sentenced and getting my piont accrost, they don't cost much ( i do not write many emails) this is my reward for daydreaming at school.
Shaky ground - nice!
