If Lynda recovers and a Llama doesn’t, there will be one hell of a

Lilian has been walking the dog and brought fresh clothes for Robert
so probably fed the llamas. That did make me sniffle, the bit about
the dog padding around Lilian's house looking for someone. Dogs do
that when their main person isn't there.

I wondered how she had got in. I can't believe she would normally have
spare keys for them.

Someone would probably have had keys. Jim? Jolene? Who lives nearest?

Someone, Roy perhaps, must have organised it and got the keys from
Robert, or maybe from Lyndy's bag at GG.

Yes, of course, a perfectly sensible explanation!

You forget, this is Ambridge,- where no-one locks their doors, removes the
keys from the car’s ignition, they leave cooling pies (and flapjacks) on
the window sill and leave cool home-made lemonade and burdock and dandelion
presse by the door for passing thirsty travellers.... oh err.... what? Eh
whaddya mean, this is 2020???!

My friend in North Northumberland, who has lived in the same house for 43
years,has never locked her doors - house or car. She instructs friends who
may call when she is out, to come in and make a cup of tea because she
probably won’t be long.
When her husband was alive, the doors were probably locked at nights but I
dare say she hasn’t bothered since his demise five or six years ago. She
says she has nothing to steal. That policy has never failed her.

I'm pleased to hear it.

Some parts of north Northumberland _do_ have an other-worldly feel about
them - bit like that mythical village that only materialises every few
years, whose name I forget. (Not Glocka Morra.)

I think Brigadoon might be the one I'm thinking of. (The real
Northumbrian villages I'm thinking of are Ford and Etal, and their
surroundings.)

Brigadoon's in Scotland. Originating place of all that is least
authentic in the world's perception of Scotland.

For some reason I *always* have trouble recalling the name of that place
and can't do so now. My daughter and I gave the name to a certain place
in Norfolk after spending *ages* trying to locate an attraction there
(*) and now I can't remember the name of that place, either! (It's no
fun being 75, you know!)

(*)This was well pre- sat navs. And also, in this case, before they got
a brown sign.

Umbrellas!

[swerve]
When we visited the lost gardens of Heligan back in 2002 we were not
surprised they'd been lost, we saw no brown signs on our approach from the
south and our elderly road map was no help at all.

We did find the place eventually and, after a fairly swift look around (it
was nearly closing time) continued northward in search of somewhere to eat.
Plenty of brown signs in that direction... [/s]

Not Thursford/Thetford (I forget - I'm nearly 60, you know!), with its
collection of cinema, fairground, and other organs, was it? I remember
thinking that was in the middle of nowhere when we visited it.

Thursford - great place! Though I dare say it's changed since I was last
there in the late '80s.

No, though I've been there 2 or 3 times. It was a Rare Breeds Centre up
in the north of the county, but I think it closed down some time ago.
Something in the back of my mind is telling me it began with H ...

Which got me wondering if I still had the recipe the lady owner gave me
for ... something, but as I can't remember what it was for (some sort of
cake, I expect) looking for it was a bit difficult. However, while
doing so, I remembered the place was called Hindringham.

When we complained that it was so difficult to find, the owner said
please would we tell the Council because they wanted brown signs and
these had not been forthcoming. We did tell the Council and next time
we went there were brown signs but I don't know if we can claim any
credit for that.

Llamasary shurely. (I was being serious seeing that FAL had mentioned
walking Lynda’s dog,)
