The Abbey Cinema is open and showing films. This evening was the last showing of the blockbuster Tenet. The next films to appear will be the special features: David Attenborough: A Life on our Planet and Three Tenors: Voices for Eternity.
Circling above Abingdon town centre at around midday, today, there was a helicopter.
I was entering the library at that time and it made it difficult to hear – especially with face coverings.
I raved, to the lady outside the door, about the book I was returning. I dropped it in the box with the other returned books. I then used the hand sanitiser. Some landed on my hands and some spurted onto the floor.
The lady at the main desk then asked whether I wanted to read anymore by the author I had mentioned. Despite the helicopter, she had overheard. She looked on the system and found another book by that author, on the shelves, at 823.
This coming Wednesday, the theme for the Abingdon Share a Poem group is Autumn. In the same shelf as 823 was 821 – Poetry. So one thing led to another and I found some good books and checked them out with the self service system. Outside I took a picture of fallen leaves.
I have not seen the Big Issue lady for some time but she was there, today, next to the mother and child statue. My wife thought the helicopter had been looking for a missing six year old who had been found.
