Caught by the River Dee

A late return by iron road to Arcadia North Six from the far corners of the Welsh County of Flintshire and the weekend's Good Life Experience.  Chipped Coronation mugs of Victory Gin mixed with Pots of Tea Drunk Trawlerman Style are raised riotously to my fellow Caught by the River gang members and without exception to all of the writers, performers and artists whom it was my absolute honour to introduce on the Caught by the River Stage and finally to the most gracious and attentive of audiences.  God Bless You and God Bless Our Dear Dogs!

May the Road Rise to Meet You

All roads lead north to next week's The Good Life Experience where, as Master of Ceremonies in the Caught by the River Tent, it will be my pleasure to introduce some of the artists below and to read aloud the words of 'The Bus Driver's Prayer'.  Should you be in attendance I look forward to your good company.

Lucien Hugoniot-Tissot in Arcadia

Bought in the recent past from a dealer of many decades standing who is in the process of clearing his rooms a magnificent Lucien Hugoniot-Tissot Hand Tool/Vice dating from the years between 1915 and 1925.  To be found in the hushed wings of my website at Just in, Sir! and for immediate sale to all those with an eye along with a number of other items most rare and wondrous.

Trout Reels for the Soul

Bought most recently and for immediate sale to ladies & gentlemen passers-by of Between-the-Wars years a number of Trout Reels for the Soul which may be found 'In the Shop Window',  at the glazed counter in an imaginary SW1 shop also known as 'Just in, Sir!' along with 'Under the Counter, Madam' ephemera relating to the Army & Navy Co-operative Society which dwelt previously in the pocket of a Col. Hoare.
