I think this says something. Not sure what though.

Dropping Mrs J off for in Wallingford her quilting class I looked across the road and saw the scene below. Had to take a picture of it on my little Nokia because it says something although I have no idea what.

    At half-time it’s Methodists 2, Baptists 1.

    It says to me that wrinklies can ignore yellow lines and park wherever they jolly well please. And quite right too. Snowflakes can wait to assume such an attitude when they too have done their time, not when they’re fourteen and ‘precious’.

    Where’s the ‘harrumph’ button?

    I recall a line from a film where Methodists were characterised as ‘Baptists who can read’.

    My grandfather was born in 1878, son of a devout Methodist family. Passions ran high. He used to say, ‘Damn the Baptists!’ In jest of course. šŸ˜

    One side of my family were strict Victorian Methodists up to the early second half of the twentieth century whereas the other were always ‘amateur’ or lapsed Anglicans. It was whispered by the latter half that the Methodists did not drink alcohol unless it was somebody else’s, especially at Christmas for some reason and especially when the Methodists visited the Anglicans.

    If the wrinklies are at the jumble sale then they are too poor to go to the shops?

    As far as Methodists go and non drinking. Most of my best customers at my Welsh Inn were elders of the local Methodist church, oops.

    ‘Taking the pledge’ was dropped after WWII. In fact a Methodist minister I knew enjoyed a pint at the local. (But probably not in Wales.)
