92 of them, plus...!




92 of them plus teachers arrived this morning.  Well behaved kids with several teachers and other who soon flocked into the shop.  These were joined by a group of people who today are referred to as having 'learning difficulties.' A stupid term when they mean, 'backward,' or 'mentally deficient.'  The thing today is to give a fancy name and pretend that makes it better rather than just look after them.  They are a type of group who often arrive with several excellent helpers.  Both they and the kids mixed well.  However this did not allow me much time to write as I was back and forward here and there when I should have been sat sitting in one place.  
When they moved into the shop the two thousand kids bought things and we were there well into the afternoon with them.  Almost at the last I managed to escape having written nothing and now canny walk right because of all the standing, running, walking I did.  I need a massage.  
All this when others were visiting, enquiring, asking questions and fixing the boilers.
I suspect the ten thousand wildebeest are happy at home explaining the Victorian life to their families and showing off their new possessions.  At least those not lost/broke/eaten/nicked.
Now I am free - until noon tomorrow. I may have to help when someone else is off.
When can I write...?
I'm knackered.

I heard a rumour Adullaman, that you were going to start volunteering at the local school on your days off at the museum.

Has your voice gone up a couple of octaves, Mr. Ad-Man?

Political-correctness has created many monsters...too many!

Carol, Was it Thursday...? That means this must be Friday? Or is it Saturday? I wish I knew...

Still, I admit it is nice to see the Bash Street lot again. They were always my favourites when I was a kid.

Jenny, They were my favourites also. The artist sat at his window watching the kids in the school behind the offices in Dundee and got inspiration from them.
