it’s a 1981 british film, if you didn’t know

Worked with the English Accent the other day. He has a blue velvet lined board on the wall in his workshop full of his father’s foot race medals.

“He ran against Eric Liddell, the man from Chariot’s of Fire, and beat him several times. In those days they had separate changing rooms, Liddell was a commoner.”

I was demo-ing out a Victorian era kitchen chimney with the son of an aristocrat.

“No,” he corrected me, “My father was the doctor to aristocracy, but not titled himself.”

We were both covered in soot, he was in the attic with a small sledge called a single-jack, smashing the clay lining of the flue to bits. He handed chunks down through a hole in the ceiling and I loaded them into 5 gallon buckets and walked them to the truck. Neither of us had adequate health care.

  2. Thanks for the feedback. I believed I set the controls to allow you to have your comment published without my approval once you’ve had a comment approved. I didn’t realize you needed to log in everytime. Can you try again and see if you do need to log in every time, or just that first time? It would be appreciated, and I’m trying to figure out how to make it easy for you.
