Coming home. Coming home. I was coming home.
Missed my train from Paddington and so I had a pint of Encore in the excellent Fuller’s station pub. It happened to coincide with a beautiful moment in history. Not Ingerland beating Colombia in the last 16, or Sweden in the Quarter final, but Germany losing 2-0 to Korea. I thought I should preserve the memory.
For those not interested in (real) football, there are some notable other features of this picture, such as the list on the chalkboard of when beers came in to the pub and when they will be ready to serve. A wonderful idea. Then there’s the mad bishop and bear brewery of the month. What a rich picture!
Oh, and, as R.E.M would say, that’s me in the corner — drinking it all in again.
