Lacock Abbey NT
This blip has been taken with my new yellow K50, unlike that for the previous day, paired with a 12-24 mm lens. I arrived at Lacock Abbey at 1640 hr and toured the grounds. This time the feline Abbess did not show, presumably curled up near a fireplace or radiator inside the Abbey, but I did see some squirrels. There seem to have been lots of horseflies about, but I didn't find out about them until the following day. This was taken at 1710 hr BST as dusk approached.

Jack Bruce - Never Tell Your Mother She's Out Of Tune (recorded April–May 1969)
R.I.P. Jack Bruce (b. 14 May 1943, Bishopbriggs, Lanarkshire; d. 25 October 2014, Suffolk, at his home). This comes from his first released solo album, following his stints in the Graham Bond Organisation, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Manfred Mann and Cream.
Jack Bruce (vocals, bass, piano) with George Harrison (as L'Angelo Mysterioso)(rhythm guitar), Chris Spedding (guitar), Jon Hiseman (drums), Harry Beckett & Henry Lowther (trumpets), Dick Heckstall-Smith & Art Themen (tenor & soprano saxes). Music composed and arranged by Jack Bruce. Words by Pete Brown. Produced by Felix Pappalardi.
The album was titled in tribute to Jeannie Franklyn ("Genie the Tailor"), a former girlfriend who was the designer that created clothing for Cream. She was the girlfriend of Fairport Convention guitarist Richard Thompson, and died when Fairport Convention's touring van crashed following a gig at Mother's Club in Birmingham, along with drummer Martin Lamble. She had written Jack Bruce a letter requesting that he sing "some high notes for me". The letter reached him on his 26th birthday, two days after she had died.
