Mother On the Telly


Simon Caldwell's article in the Saturday's Telegraph on Mother Riccarda's being declared a Servant of God has aroused a bit of media interest. Here is me showing a picture Mother to Briony from BBC South.

Tonight we have a demonstration of lighting fittings for our new lighting scheme, that's our next project, as much for health and safety reasons as for aesthetic ones, everytime we have an electrical inspection I expect it to be condemned. The cost will be about £50,000, we're very fortunate we have £56,000  in the bank, so say a prayer that we have enough money left over to install the font in the baptistry with a suitable memorial to Mother Riccarda's progress to Canonisation, which began in our font!

Father, that cannot be a host lying to your right, at the bottom right of the picture, can it?

Now that I've tried looking hard, there's also a strange speck at the foot of the column, but I suppose that is definitely something else, isn't it?

Host, certainly not!

As we say, "go get em!".

I could not help to think of the "Black and White Minstrel Show" seeing you in the picture with the young lady!
