Downton Sunset

This morning I enjoyed another encouraging Chiropractic session with Eloise, and thereafter made good headway with “The Charterhouse of Parma” before wandering outside the house and round the garden photographing

a pink and pale indigo sunset.

This evening we all dined on toothsome roast pork with teeth-testing crackling; herby sage and onion stuffing; boiled potatoes; crunchy carrots; firm cauliflower; tender cabbage; meaty gravy; Bramley apple sauce and redcurrant jelly, with which Jackie drank more of the White Zinfandel, and I drank Swartland Shiraz 2022.


  1. Good to hear the Chiropractic sessions are easing the pain in your shoulder Derrick … the ‘The Old Post Office’ sign looks impressive.

  2. Tooth-testing crackling – yep. I used to love crackling. Since the episode with the Mint Imperial and the exploding tooth I have not been able to feel much enthusiasm for crackling . . . 🙂

  3. It is good to know the healing process is still underway. As beautiful as they are, your sunset photographs convey rather cold weather. Keep warm and enjoy reading!

  4. I enjoyed your study in pink and pale indigo skies, Derrick. Only five days until solstice now. Sounds like your pain will be shed along with the darkness soon. I am glad the chiropractic sessions are going well.

    Dinner sounds like a feast! Enjoy the season.
