April 18th Monday. Very thundery, with rain this evening tho’ no actual thunder so far. Ray took Barny down to the vet, who said he is a splendid old chap for his age, but has a slight temperature. So has given him a shot of antibiotics. Diane came to wash my hair for me. Mrs B brought my dress for me for the Oxford dinner, which looks very nice, hope it fits.
One thought on “Barny … is a splendid old chap for his age … (Diary, 18/4/88)”
Oh! I wonder what/where/when was the Oxford dinner? I was working in Oxford all through 1992…
