Oh, Starry, Starry Night!
We’ve been assured that several red-attired NICE individuals who jogged up the steps of this private manse in the north the other evening, all obviously bubbling with the special effects of better days, were treated royally by the occupier in his yellow pyjamas. Maybe he was himself high on the spirits of the season while he extended his generosity to the uninvited crowd, none of whom mentioned they had been attracted to the gentleman’s crib by the bright red star directly above it. Did they imagine it was a sign that spelled en rouge, or was it simply a hint of things to come? For certain, Christmas, like natural disasters, brings out the best in us! Photo by Bill Mortley.
