Anthony Sargeant cooked a small joint of beautifully marbled beef earlier in the week. Quickly sealed in a hot pan then into a fan oven at 60 degrees Celsius for an hour and a half. What was left after the first meal was very thinly sliced and served cold with chips (french fries to Americans) a salad and a few spicy stuffed red peppers.
Anthony Sargeant drove down to Bracklesham Bay on the English South Coast in 1963 together with Barbara Attridge to visit his friends, Steve Lee (seen here with Barbara Attridge), Mark Baxter, and Bob Tweddle, who were working in the summer vacation at Bracklesham Bay Hotel.
Andy was a rescue dog – a great big irrepresible blond dollop of a dog. Anthony Sargeant took this photograph of him – he was an Alsatian cross of some kind. The rescue kennels had tried to rehouse him on 3 or 4 occasions but he was returned each time because the families could not cope with his size and energy – fortunately living in a big house with fields behind we could. He was irresistible on our first visit to the kennels bounding out to greet us. He lived to a good age for a big dog but it was heart wrenching when he died.
Anthony Sargeant took this photograph on a sunny day in September 1979. Mont St Michel seems to float in the clear blue sky above the fields of Normandy.

Anthony Sargeant took this photograph at 7.30 am on the 16th November 2016 from the garden of his Shropshire home looking towards Wenlock Edge. The moon has been very bright the past few nights and it was still in the sky as the early bird flew up from the copse by the River Corve.
Supper a few nights ago for Anthony Sargeant was a delightful and decorative crusty pizza baked on a stone. Mozzarella chunks with choriza, halved black olives, and spicy small Macedonian peppers on a tomato base made from the last of the Shropshire gardens home grown tomatoes.
