The Wadworth Shires (Thursday 2nd August 2018)
This year the Wadworth shire horses' holiday started one day early for the very good reason than two of the people in charge of them, Callum and Hannah, are to be married on Saturday and needed a day to make the final preparations.
In the blip the three shires have just downed their glasses of Wadworth 6X. Hannah is on the left ducking beneath Sam, and Callum is on the right with Max.
The two Extras show them a little later in the field at Mill Farm in Bulkington, where they will be resting their amazing magnificent feet until Monday week, ready for another year delivering ale to the Wadworth pubs within a two mile radius of Devizes.
Before I drove over to Bulkington I paid a quick visit to the canal at Devizes Wharf. There's a link to the Flickr album below.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
The Library of Babel - Branching (2016)
Such is the backlog of purchased CDs that I haven't heard yet that the oldest unplayed CD came with The Wire magazine on sale in April 2016. I have now finally given it a listen, and found it full of the weird and wonderful. From it comes this track by a chamber string trio from North Carolina, and their album, Blue Nineteen, which was improvised one night in a bookstore in downtown Asheville. They were named after the Borges short story in which the world is an infinite library of meaningless books shelved in a random order, from which the trio search for coherence.
