The same evening, I met most of the Brothers of the Little Oratory here in San Diego. They are an impressive set of men, ranging from a barber to university lecturers, and all keen as mustard. The occasion was a practice for solemn Vespers, to take place next Sunday, coram Episcopo, in the Cathedral, but the only location that we could find to practice (though several churches had been tried) was the driveway of John’s parents’ house. Rather surreal; I wonder what the neighbours made of it.

"Weird stuff" goes on in PB all the time. Doubt if they batted an eye! If you had only asked *me* I had the keys to a rather large church hall AND sanctuary.

But nooooooo....... some people just don't ask the right questions!
