Flying, bathroom and broadcast.

1. Sitting with Granny watching a buzzard's wings change from black silhouette to brown and back again as it turns in the sky above us.

2. My father looks into the skip at his dismantled bathroom and bemoans forgetting to use the loo for the last time that morning.

3. My writing teacher recommends a radio play based on Kressman Taylor's Address Unknown. It was only broadcast on Friday, so there's still a chance to listen to this chilling piece -- set in 1932, it consists of letters between a German and his Jewish business partner back in the US.

  1. OH, quick look at the title and I thought your dad was building a flying bathroom. Wonder if it would have had a door?

  2. Thanks for sharing the link to "Address unknown". I'd never heard of it before but listened to the play on Friday and thought it was excellent. Just need to wait for Amazon to get some more stock!
