I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.
though in fact, nobody does seem to have remembered it in our village today, which I am pleased about, as Az finds the bangs very worrying. There were a few bangs yesterday, causing Brythen to rush about shouting "WOO!" and Az to put his head under the blanket and pretend to be invisible, but one night of bangs is easy to cope with, whereas several nights is much more difficult. The cats didn't seem bothered at all. Mind you, not much ruffles our cats.
Up on the hill, there is evidence that someone had decided a good way to remember the failed attempt to explode Parliament, would be to push fireworks into dog poo bins until there was an almighty and stinky explosion.
I really cannot figure out why someone would do this. Of all the things one could satisfyingly blow up, POO BINs? Poo bins on Sunday evening at that, so two days uncleared! Even if it was a political statement, it would be a phenomenally messy and stinky one. In my shortlist of explodables, I can honestly say that 'poo bins' would never feature,even if I had already exploded my top 20 items and had to cast about for more stuff to explode.
