Biggest audience yet, at Ashfield Library. Pissing with rain – but happily not until I and the audience were all inside. Then the heavens opened and down it came: I stopped in the middle of a word and gazed open-mouthed at the windows that formed one of the walls. So did everyone else (gaze, I mean … they weren’t talking !), because it bucketed down like anything. Woe. Still, I had had the foresight to buy a new folding umbrella; and according to M.R. luck, that should have meant no rain at all. Didn’t work, did it ?! 😦
I’d had to restructure a bit, as this Library organiser had a finite amount of time available (I gave the talk in a Council room, and it was wanted not long after). Also, I spoke faster – but it didn’t appear to be too fast, as I didn’t spot any expressions of puzzlement or “Huh?”-ness. (If you like that, you may borrow it: but do remember to return it when you’ve finished, yes ?)
Loud applause from all, and the presentation of what you see in the photo. LUCKY ME !
Only prob. was getting it home on the train and the tram and the umbrella and the incessant rain. I managed but.
Some more libraries added to the list, remaining only to be confirmed. At this rate I’ll be giving my talk from a bathchair. [grin]
