For Stense

Boots on telephone wiresFor reasons I can't go into right now, I saw these in Hebden Bridge this morning, and they made me think of Stense.

Not that Stense reminds me of a pair of old boots, you understand.

Well, not very much.

They both have tongues, I suppose. And heels. And they're both very well built. And they're both very reliable. And they can both be rather straight-laced at times (you know what I'm talking about, Stense, oh yes you do!).

Actually, come to think of it, Stense does remind me of a pair of old boots.

  2. The week after next, I intend to listen to 'The House of the Rising Sun' while actually in New Orleans & St. Louis blues the week after.

    Are there any songs about Bournemouth, I wonder?

  3. Who was it who recorded the song 'The Leaving of Liverpool'?

    Like Bournemouth: a lovely place to come from, but who would want to go there?

  4. Hello.
