An Average Day in Hay

Yesterday I went up to Country Supplies to buy some new dishcloths, and the chap behind the counter was wearing a rather fine kilt with leather sporran and a belt with a stag's head buckle.
On the way down Backfold, I passed Richard Booth sitting outside the Sandwich Cellar, being interviewed by a young Chinese woman. They were talking about Chairman Mao's Little Red Book.
And I popped into the Blue Boar for a half of Old Hooky, and got talking to a chap who was waiting for his wife. "She only stepped into a bookshop for two minutes," he said, and he hadn't seen her since!
