Griff tells Ida he went to the cinema alone when he left work early and saw the Three Stooges new film but wasn't impressed. He reckons Charlie Chaplin is the best comedian.
The Lido cinema is closed for "re-everything, including anti-draught devices and a new talkie machine."
He quotes passages about a couple in Angela Thirkell's "Ankle Deep."
He discusses the cello scale and remembers Harold Dawber telling him that BBC singers are always flat if you test them on a piano scale.
He walked with a "soldier boy" to the barracks from the station and they chatted. He was coming back from meeting his girlfriend and didn't like the walk to the barracks alone.
Luckily Griff's cold is gone.
