The Commonwealth leaders, to my delight and gratitude, demonstrated our
British ingrained CLASS.
Disagreements aside this is still one heck of ‘strictly by invitation only’ club.
This was good.
Long Live THE Commonwealth
in all its Glory.
Talking about the ‘Daily News‘ got me thinking about their iconic ‘Lake House‘ — their headquarters in Colombo, Ceylon when I was growing up.
I used to visit ‘Lake House’ on a fairly regular basis and it was also a ‘meeting place’ for the family if we were in different cars or taxis. It would be, lets meet outside ‘Lake House’.
I just went looking for a picture. I found one below. Wow.
There was NO big tree there when I was a boy! Can you see the steps? I still can see myself running up and down those steps in shorts. They seemed much bigger. I could be wrong but I remember some kind of water feature in front. Possibly a fountain. Does anybody remember that? I think there was a round-about.
