i'm just about to sell out.
the lights didn't work when i came in this morning. i took
the momentary limping to run down to the shop and get the
I'm thinking that if i stick around this county – allah
forbid – that i might live in this little town. hmmm.
I get rather excited when I see a notice that welcomes the

following that i've organized. yippee.
Man arrives to fix the lights. Sorted.
