The lilac jacket and Christmas song # 15.
Good morning from him ....
..... and good morning from her.
On our morning walk an old Mercedes passes us and stops. Out gets the German billionaire. He speaks lovingly, in English, about how he came to acquire this 1953 classic. ' I found it in Berlin. It has a full service record. Indeed it has the fullest ! You would not find such a thing in France ". After that Angus doesn't pay much attention to what is being said, his attention consumed by what our wealthy neighbour is wearing. Brown check trousers with non matching brown and red striped pockets. A lilac jacket with purple edging to the lapels, green suede loafers and an orange polo neck . The tout ensemble gives him the look of a racy Edwardian era music hall comedian. Quite remarkable. Angus silently vows to stick to a blue dress code. We are invited to the chateau for pre-Christmas drinks. Bob and Sophie watch on in bemused silence.
The Police have finally cleared away the protesters encampment.
All that is left are the charred remains of some cars and a large pile of still smouldering tyres.
