This morning I completed the addressing of the last of the cards for posting.
After lunch I scanned the next six of Charles Keeping’s marvellous illustrations to my Folio Society edition of ‘Dombey and Son’.
‘He caught her to his heart’
‘ ‘I beg your pardon, ‘ interposes Cousin Feenix’
‘ ‘Let go, will you? What are you doing of?’ ‘
‘She wound her wild black hair around her hand’
The drawing of ‘She surveyed him with a haughty contempt and disgust’, shows the gentleman’s unusually sheathed teeth indicating his discomfort;
and, in the foreground of ‘Away, at a gallop, over the black landscape’ the teeth display alarm instead of the usual broad grin.
Because of a flaw in the printing of this page, I have not included the text with the image which is too good to omit.
Max, of Peacock Computers, visited this afternoon to troubleshoot the new landline, and to tidy up the cable spaghetti of the improved broadband system.
Afterwards we posted the cards and bought bread and tomatoes at Everton Post Office.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s substantial chicken and vegetable stewp and fresh crusty bread and butter, with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Pomerol.
