Dinner with he and Rupert last night (socially distanced) was a good reflection on that time, recalling how he first arrived – i’d forgotten – to look after the dogs when I went down to Peter Hemy’s funeral and stay with Tori for the week.
Ruperts roast peppers, a very hot chicken curry, and mouth cleaning Halomi salad with caper seeds.
The US is opening up, Trump plans to do a rally, we await what Borris says today. the UK over 30,000 dead.
