Broad Chalke accents began late at 08.41. The office began shaking at 09.32 as our landlord catalysed the separation of random animal parts from a closer embrace of each other.
- Wednesday 12th. May:
Driving from Bredonborough to visit Vivien & Pierre Elliot in Parkstone, Dorset, and to tea with Vivien, her daughter Sara & grandson Adam.
Then to Chez Wetton, on the other side of Bournemouth, for coffee & cake, catching up on personal news, & watching Red from the latest JW Band DVD. And lastly to DGM HQ to touch base with David on outstanding matters.
The traveling took me to places of close association with my youth, adolescence & early adulthood.

20.46 It's the Late Shift, beginning an hour earlier than customary. A listen-through to Volume IV, tickled & re-vibrated, now with extra fairy dust.
22.07 David has listened to this once too often. The trees have disappeared into the wood. For me, this is the best order we have had.
22.09 And now David has come up with a radical alternative to throw everything into the air again! That's life at DGM.
22.22 David has left. An early completion for a Late Shift.
