Bad times in the Southern US right now, with the race attack at a church in Charleston – not so far from where we live. I’ve mentioned several times that the undercurrent of racism is always noticeable – even the owner of our brilliant ‘private’ gym has never admitted a coloured person, yet freely allows Chinese and other extraction folks to join. We love him to bits, I guess, but we cannot share his opinion on that. And of course, the gun thing too: once again, the gun lobby says that the best defence against bad guys with guns is good guys with more guns. To a mere Brit living in the US, it’s a surreal world.
So, from our mobile circus home in the deep South, deepest sympathies to the relatives of all those caught up in the homicides at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on Wednesday.
And now a few pictures. It may seem insensitive to some to follow the first two paragraphs with pictures of guys, but that’s what this blog is about (and those wretched book ads, of course). So I’ll do it anyway, sans further remarks – chest poses today.
