Fact is stranger than fiction


Which is why I read more current affairs books than (say) Leo Tolstoy (although, who could not be taken in by his opening line in "Anna Karenina", "All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way"?)

I made a quick dash into town for some plumbing stuff, and dropped into my favourite op-shop on the way where I found Gwynne Dyer's "The Mess They Made" as well as the 10-part "Band of Brothers" (running time 700 minutes) and an oldie but goodie, "Elephant Walk", with Elizabeth Taylor and Peter Finch, which means I'm all set up for the weekend.

It's a Goldilocks day outside, so I may sit on the jetty and make an early start on "The Mess They Made" while waving to the tourists passing by.
