September is the month when the children have gone back to school so their grandparents can come out to play. Cornwall is full of golden oldies. This is very good news. They have spending power and use the local pubs and restaurants freely. Yesterday one of David's old friends arrived on his boat. We met in the pub for lunch and were joined by other old friends. Having put the world to rights several times over, we could then come home and sleep it off. There's a lot to be said for being old!
