News from Norfolk: the man from the Pru

September 15, 2013

Dear Len
I walked into the centre today and saw Noddy has got a new delivery of some Russian shoelaces and Somali fag papers. That Noddy is one of them Dick Branson types, what the Chinese call an entrepreneur. It just goes to show that there’s no need for none of that university education. He’s built up all of that business with just two weeks at the Secondary Modern behind him. He says he would have gone more only Roger were always up first and got to the vicar’s bike before him. Well I got you a box of the papers and six cards of shoe laces for good measure. Joan says she’ll take them to the hairdresser’s next week and Roxy can pass them on to Maureen when she goes in for her wash and set.
Got to dash as we’re expecting company. It’s the day the man from the Pru comes. We haven’t had a policy with him in years, but we don’t like to stop him coming round. It gives Joan something to look forward to as she trims his ear hair for him while he’s here and I tell her it’s good for her to have a hobby like that.

    Oh my word, these little snippets are so delightful. You could run around Norfolk, camera in hand, and tag them to candid photographs. I’m not kidding. It’s a vision from the other half of the world. r.

    • and the last half of the last century.If you were still over here I’d commission you. Meanwhile I’m enjoying sourcing the most banal/depressing photos I can.

        Just want to say, that the pictures you post, they have a character which works really well, especially the industrial ones. They link sweetly into your paintings of buildings.

        • Thank you. I’ve got to say I don’t feel me and photos get on well. There always seems to be part of a glove in the photo and everything is miles away. I do like taking photos on my phone though. Unfortunately I managed to wipe several years worth of family photos this summer
