Hastings part 2


Here’s a corner of Hastings Old Town that could have been neglected and ignored but has been planted up and loved. There’s a bench in front of it, on which three elderly people were sitting when I took this pic. I couldn’t help but overhear their conversation:

‘What have they put that sign there for?’
‘Everyone knows that the B259 is left, not that way.’
‘Bloody council. They can’t get anything right.’
‘God, look at that girl.’
‘The fat one?’
‘No, the one in the shorts. Look at her.’
‘Call that fashion?’
‘She looks bad enough now, what’s she going to look like in 20 years time?’
‘Bloody awful, that’s what.’
‘God, it’s hot.’
‘Too bloody hot.’
‘Still, we mustn’t complain.’
