A Week in the Life of Our Man in Kent…

My first fishing trip… “You’d be proud of me today.  With a few other chums from Ickham, we went fishing in the Channel out of Dover.  I caught a couple of cod, a couple of whiting, and some nasty little critter which has a stingy barb as sharp as a hyperdermic needle on its back.  P says it is the tastiest (and freshest) cod she has ever eaten…”  “Ascot next week and then I’m in France for a week, then Henley.  But apart from Scotland we’re here all the summer…”

Wot – no pictures of Joan Collins?

Meanwhile, Back Home in Ickham…

We’ve walked past it so often – on the way back to the Coach House from The Prince William.  Even climbed the back fence to take a short-cut over the fields. Often wondered what it was like inside…  OK – so it was the DUKE William…  Jeez – I hate it when he’s right!


Happy Birthday…
