For those who are interested in rare sightings here's one for the scrapbook. These people are waiting for a bus, as you can see they are all laughing nervously and that is because they have never been on a bus before. They are the people of Ponteland, where everyone has at least 3 cars and one private jet. The leader at the front, identifiable by his blue and white plumage, is usually carried everywhere by his adoring fans. We were in Benwell for the licensing of the new vicar, who had been their curate. The people of Benwell put on a fine spread, including quail's eggs, that made the Ponteland people feel at home!
