“Is that the suave Gary?” Asked Ann as I walked out of the Talking Newspaper studio.
“Suave? I was going for disheveled,” I answered.
“Well, you’ve certainly pegged that!” Replied Rosemary with a delightful sparkle in her eye.
The reason she called me suave was because of my Ecuadorian hat…which looks about as suave as a turnip.
The only reason I mentioned this little exchange is to point out how the people at Talking Newspaper relate to me. They are so relaxed they feel quite happy taking the piss. I really, really like that level of acceptance.
Today I was presenting the Haslemere edition and had a good team so it all ran very smoothly. We had a new engineer today with Pete trying to stay awake in the corner. He sits there in case anything goes wrong with the new engineers. Nothing did, so he just struggled to stay awake.
On the way home I spotted a lovely tree in the park and hereby include it as one of my favourite trees… though it’s probably the light more than anything.
… then, at home, the Internet had returned! Weird! I’d turned everything off last night and left it till I returned from the recording. Having turned it all back on it suddenly connected and worked! Weird!
So, tomorrow, I shall have to cancel the engineer… if it’s still working tomorrow.
