The tenth of May

Explaining something to Fred, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Today is 10th May which is well known to every child brought up in Beaconsfield as being the date of the annual fair. A fair which is set up on the main A40 road going through the Old Town. Just the one day. A good old-fashioned fair which'd have us invariably bringing a goldfish or two home to replace the ones which we had won the previous year but which had subsequently had died.

38 years ago it was the celebration of 700 years of Beaconsfield being granted a fair, which now must be 738 years old!

It is also The Cat's - Angelo's - birthday, so would like to wish him a Happy Birthday and thank for the hospitalit6y his has shown the both of us during our time in Rome. Here he is last weekend, explaining something to Fred. I just hope it was not yet another Italian lesson!
