FOOTNOTES: Having prepared for this weeks few days and nights of bangs, whistles and screams, that comprise the annual celebration of November 5, I settled down with Chaplin to pass the evening in front of the TV. Normally he is fairly placid with the noises that percolate through the drawn curtains, closed doors etc., and I keep his attention on me to take his mind off it all. Later, I could hear the rumble from Lewes, rather reminiscent of an artillery barrage, but by that time he was soundly asleep. I have nothing against fireworks, indeed I have had my share of standing in either pouring rain or freezing cold, or sometimes both, the smell of badly burnt food from the inevitable barbecue invading my nostrils, as I watch my hard earned cash explode in a shower of coloured sparks in the sky above, to the squeals of delight from those dancing around the bonfire. Now, vicariously, I tend to watch from my kitchen window others delight in this yearly festival, albeit that it seems to run from mid October to mid November these days. It never seems to lose its appeal, this celebration of the saving of Parliament so many years ago. Enjoy your week and go safely wherever your life takes you.
