Saracen’s Head, Amersham, Buckinghamshire   1 comment

The first stop on my first Christmas Holiday run was at the Saracen’s Head down a long, steep hill from Amersham Station, one of the extreme endpoints of the London Underground and actually miles outside the M25.  Atlanta people might compare it to Roswell, or Tucson people could think Marana; Amersham is positioned about as far away and in the same general direction as those outposts are from their city centres.

I came in and ordered then took my beer to the fire and listened to the couple of chaps at the bar snipe at each other about the football clubs they support.  One, a Liverpool supporter, was reading the Sun — an incongruity which I would have brought up if they and the bartender didn’t fuck off outside for a smoke at about that time.  I finished my beer alone…as we all do, eventually (winter doldrums setting in, too, as this was the first day of celestial Winter).
