As the Christmas shoppers have unlimited cash, or so it appears, the shopping centres do their best to bring them in with a wide variety of attractions, usually those that attract the kids. Today our centre once again went for animals, a goat which as I passed later was standing on a hay bale with the kind of expression that spoke of conquering the entire world, a couple of ducks in a basin of water but quite happy and ponies, chickens and lots of people. The people I must add were visiting the centre, not stuck inside the fenced of areas with the animals, although this might be an idea worth considering. There was an aroma emanating from this area but it kept down the aroma of the locals so that was OK.
Now it is late, I am sleepy and my restful mind is being tested by the woman next door. She has been cooking MEAT! Once again the fragrance of roast beef is filling the place and I am sitting here nourished badly, a mere seven stone weakling, while she stuffs herself with proper food and I suspect with gravy and all the trimmings. She must do it for spite! I will drift off into sleep and dream of meat all night now. Bah!
The sun however did reappear today leaving bright golden leaves on the trees.
