Long Live the King!

After a totally hectic week, culminating yesterday by cutting the lawn with our new lawnmower before today’s rain arrived, I settled down this morning recover with some strong coffee and to watch the coronation.  (Yes, I know it’s no-mow May, but if I left it I’d have been flushing out the water buffalo.  I’ve left some long areas wild.)  I’d class myself as a mild royalist – I’ve dipped into the procession and watched the ceremony (partly to catch Welby’s sermon) until Charles was pronounced king – but would never considering going to London to see any of it all.  But I enjoy the pageant and style of the whole thing and some excellent music.

As for model railways, my approach at the moment is rather summed up by these two videos – a bit random and difficulty in making things work.  All in Bahasa Indonesia, but brilliant pictures of rickety sugar-cane railways.  I was surprised at how much Bahasa I identified, not having been in Java since 2017.   His whole channel is a fun watch.  The trackwork is even worse than ESNG at it’s best….
