Opening remarks[edit | edit source]
Like many of you, my wife and I are quite naturally house proud and very often we sit back in our armchairs and talk over the improvements we'd like to make in the home. Not big jobs, but little things like repairing the springs in those blooming armchairs before they do us a mischief. But when Captain Povey's at home he's never even allowed to sit in an armchair unless Mrs Povey's away. As she is today.
