Part Two
In the archives, it's still 1980 or ’81. Nick and Hazel stay overnight on their way back from that abroad, and give me a lift back to West Wales via Kilpeck's
Norman church and some unidentified but rather lovely woodland.

Part Two
On the other hand, is all over the place, although I'm pretty sure the date is the summer of 1981, and this batch starts in West Wales,
then switches to Brighton. There are druggy fools everywhere...

He did. Billy's feet.

To be fair to the old goat, we had just got back from playing Frisbee in the mud and his footwear wasn't muckproof. He was on his way to the bath when Biggles challenged him. Biggles was an intact Tom who'd been a mouser in a restaurant he'd worked in. Billy took him in when the restaurant was closed for some reason and ended up keeping him. He was a mean mofo, well hard, ruled the feline version of Vernon Terrace with extreme prejudice.

Seeing as how I've run out of January pics and February is still extant, going to do a double dip into the archives from the 1980s. Part one continues the run from early in the decade, part two is later

Here's the new batch, not wildly different from the old batch...
Part one carries on from yesterday in Brighton, and I'm increasingly thinking it's likely that this is the late 70s, as I appear to be wearing a suit, suggesting
I went straight down after work. And I stopped dressing up for work in April 1979. But maybe there's another reason for the three-piece. Anyways...

Nope, no editing today, so more on the lines of yesterday.
Part one is back in the early 80s, maybe a little earlier as the first three are dateable
