I went shopping at TeraGroce.
Someone living in the Thornboroughs’ house must be celebrating a birthday today. This afternoon I saw a banner on the rear window of the little white VW, that read: “happy” (white letters on pale blue on a black background) “birthday” (white letters on red on a black background). There was a similar or identical banner stuck diagonally onto the upper half of the front door of the house, over the vertical windows set into that door. Both the gates of the drive were open, and attached to the right-hand edge of the left-hand gate were three balloons, pale blue speckled with white. I suppose Mr Kaufman must be celebrating his thirtieth birthday.
