I am clearing two house and discovering bits of my past unseen for an age, like the photo of Johanna, a Finnish woman I went to Finland to stay in with in the 90’s.

I am also finding this I cannot remember ever seeing before; like the new looking pewter mug with a handle in the shape of a tobacco pipe.

I decided to celebrate the day with beer, and seeing there is a possibility that I might become a morris dancer, I decided to drink out of pewter.

If there’s nothing else, or I want to take the beer away from the pub without trouble, I’d happily drink out of a pewter mug; but it would take time to get used to it.
