Tea at the Spitz

A most enjoyable day at the market yesterday, despite a mild hangover as a result of one bottle too many of Pale Ale at the Caught by the River Social Club Christmas Drink.  The only thing I bought all day was a third edition of 'A Fly Fisher's Life' by Charles Ritz with a splendid plate of Mr. Ritz fishing in the company of his wire-haired fox terrier and some interesting examples of typeface on card.  Fittingly, both themes were married as the day swiftly degenerated into a riot of tea drinking with sterling stall regulars.
