Thursday Doors

By Dr Alfred Prunesquallor

Maverick doctor with 40 years experience, I reduced my NHS commitment in 2013. I am now enjoying being free lance, working where I am needed overseas. Now I am working in the UK helping with the current coronavirus pandemic.


  1. You should wait until the currency crisis is sorted out. I was unable to get any cash from my bank today, and the ATMs ran dry both times I waited in line this week. Plastic pays for food in supermarkets, but not in the street market.

  2. What beautiful doors! Even the ancient one with holes in it has its beauty. Did the gentleman in front of them wonder what you were doing? He looks like he’s about to ask.
