The evening was in complete contrast a supernatural affair. Firstly I'd attend a Harvest Festival church ceremony where I believe a virgin was captured and then sealed inside a wicker prison cell, built in the shape of a man. Fortunately this didn't happen and all we did was sing a few hymns and bow our heads accordingly.
Now those who know me, know I give no time at all to the pagan festivities of Harvest Festival, let alone attend a church
A more entertaining reading was from a lady who looked like she'd had an entire harvest festival to herself, consisting mainly of Magnum ice cream no doubt. She read from the Old Testament - that's the one where you have to interpret as it's too unbelieveable - compared to the sequel, called The New Testament. The reading was basically capitalism - expanding your crops, expanding population, expanding livestock etc.
By the end of it I was desperate for a beer so off to the Cow Shed we went, only to find it was already half full with people who didn't attend the service. Now, even I thought this was poor form. The meal was ok. Substantial but not special. The conversation from my end was heavily sarcastic:
"Oh the vicar has a chair free on her left side."
"That's for the Holy Ghost..." I quipped.
We left for yet another cold night in the awning. I expect to be woken up by a naked Britt Ekland pounding on the outside of the canvas.
