Good Friday

Ireland is given special dispensation to open their pubs on practically the holiest day on the Christian calendar just because “it would be financial madness” to keep them closed when the national rugby team is playing locally.  Jesus must be rolling in His grave.

The same thinking, no doubt, led half the charity shops in Hythe to open their doors to the odd crate digger.  Judging by the small crowds who braved the rain gray town,  however,  my guess is that the takings at Cancer Research etc. were but small beer compared to the watering holes on Eire. 

At least Shelter got 50p from me for nine handy inner sleeves (including the plastic lining).
