Toothless people

There are a lot of very picturesque people in Helminthdale town centre this morning. I'm not sure if the weather's brought them out or just that I'm in the mood to notice them.

There are three Captain Bird's-Eye looky-likeys in the bus station. Two are wearing thick fisherman's sweaters. One character is actually wearing a fisherman's smock! They'll be up for to linger round Marks & Spencers this lunchtime.

An interesting old couple were walking down the Pardendale Road. She was wearing a thick woolly decorated with pictures of timber wolves. He was wearing German Army issue Norway Campaign snow camouflage gear, which went very well with his magnificent white beard.

Sumer is icumen in, lhude sing cuccu!

Where is it you live???

There are parts of north-west England where reality tilts at 45 degrees

Ah, North West, eh? To me that's either tweedy Middle-class Keswick or (out-of-)working-class Workington; I'll let me imagination decide which it is.

Both a bit posh for us. Imagine a more down-market Cleator Moor.
