In Part One, I'm out and about in Sandford parish in mid-July, while Part Two dips into the print scans for a trip to see Clive - currently incapacitated with pneumothorax, poor sod – some time in the first decade of this century

Part Two
It's around the first point in Leo down Sandford way, and me and Him are going up the hill to look at the heatwave-going-on-drought. But first, a quick sniff at one of the locals

Oooh Get Her
Scrap and, ahem, Tinkerbell (or possibly her brother Barney, they're not dissimilar).

Supper at Tiffany's
Belsize Road, 1989. After I sold the flat at the Mansions in 1989, I moved in temporarily above a shop in south Kilburn, before Chip and I (who had married the year before, but were still yet to live together) went house-hunting in Brizzle, whither she had moved in 1987. I made over £50,000 on the house sale, and although the great majority of that went into buying our house in Oldland Common in 1989, I did splurge £250 each on two bespoke artworks: a blue blind based on one of my photos for what would become the Trip Room, and before that, in 1988 from a craft shop in Putney, this lamp in the Tiffany style (and made with actual favrile glass), in a colour scheme dictated by a favourite carpet. I still have, and love, the lamp, but the carpet is long gone.

Meanwhile, towards the end of July, Me and Him go on yet another trip to Creedy Beach

Standing Room Only
The local kine cram into the available shade as the temperature heads towards 30° Celsius

The river is really low, and eminently wadeable, so took the opportunity of getting some (slightly) different perspectives on familiar scenes
