Distinct lack of fireworks...

Playlist
Eagles - Desperado
Japan - Oil on Canvas
Bryan Ferry - Olympia
Martinu - Complete Symphonies

Guy Fawkes' night - when I was young this was an event - now it passes almost unnoticed other than for the odd unwanted loud bang in the distance...

Soundtracked initially by yesterday's purchases...

Wandered into HMV at lunchtime and noted some classical offers...

On my way home I returned to partake of their 3CD set of Mr Martinu's six symphonies...

Our first Indian takeaway for a while sustained this evening whilst goggleboxing was the entertainment menu for most of the night, including Tivo'd "Law & Order : Criminal Intent" and "The Trip" plus "New Tricks" ( a guilty pleasure - and always good to see James Bolam) and "Graham Norton", including Pet Shop Boys promoting their third version of their greatest hits - to the sound of a barrel being scraped..

Inbetween some of this, Meg the Black Cat and I enjoyed the first disc of the Martinu set...


Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : Meg doing OK...
