late sun gold

Trains are delayed at Charing Cross as people are hoping to get home after a day's work.

At least it isn't raining. The sun comes out and disappears behind clouds. When it shines we hurry out of the front door to catch it.

Two details in a recent account (in an article in The Daily Mail by Wensely Clarkson) of the aftermath of the  Brink's-Mat robbery at Heathrow in 1983 are engaging. First one of the robbers left his council house in South London after what seemed a reasonable interval and moved into a mansion in Kent. He also bought two rottweilers and named them Brink's and Mat. Second gold bars were discovered in the garage of Kenneth Noye who undertook to smelt the stolen gold.  Police noted that  Goldfinger by Shirley Bassey was primed  to play when anyone walked into Noye's lounge.
