The sketchbook is a great aid at times like this . There was something terribly interesting to sketch further along the quayside . And I just kept going . Tired and cold and full of anticlimax . And needing a pee . The cafe was(tense) warm and smelling of fish scales . Three young men with loop and stud earrings in one ear ( the lad on the Caledonian Canal fishing boat was not as individual as I had thought ) had three beefburgers and a pie each and then a chocolate KitKat with their tea . Rows of sweetie jars lined the shelves . I bought some Liquorice Perfections after my pie , beans and chips and sucked them on the bus to Thurso .

A black and white rough-haired terrier was asleep on the hearth rug . ` My friend , Miss Bond , Superintendent . ' Miss Bond , who was standing when he entered the room , was the perfect complement to Beryl , plump instead of lean , dainty instead of gaunt , amiable instead of forbidding . ` We 've known each other most of our lives and we were at school together , so we 've no secrets . ' It dawned on Wycliffe that the room was (tense) smelling strongly of whisky , and that Miss Bond had probably hidden bottle and glasses while he was being received on the landing . He was directed to a leather armchair by the empty fireplace while the two women seated themselves on dining chairs at the table . Their movements were deliberate and careful and Wycliffe had the impression of figures in slow motion , indeed of a whole existence that proceeded at a slower pace , muted , subdued , and infinitely depressing . He expressed sympathy and it was received with complacency .

The whisper is that Faldo has not been saying too much about how well he is playing for fear of tempting fate . There has , nevertheless , been time to watch him and he appears to be hitting shot after shot pretty well exactly where he wants it . Only the number of putts he holes varies . Ballesteros , too , is already smelling the azaleas , the important factor with him being that his short game is razor sharp . His driving , suspect in the Players ' championship , has also improved . I have seen less of Olazabal because , for some reason , I do not find him an easy player to watch . Everyone knows how good he is , or nearly is , but somehow he remains a more remote figure .

SUPER SCENTS When our mouths water at the evocative aroma of good cooking , we are experiencing a sense found in even the most basic forms of life . Single-celled protozoa can detect the chemicals in their food and move towards them . Whether an animal is tasting or smelling its food may be difficult to determine , however , for the distinction between the two senses is often blurred . For example , the snake uses its forked tongue to gather scent particles from the air and tastes them on a special membrane , called Jacobson 's organ , at the back of its mouth . The smell and taste receptors of insects may be mingled , with some performing both functions .

Driving home past the movie studios that line Melrose Avenue , Chuck D 's angry rap bounces around my head : ` For all the years we looked like clowns . The joke is over , smell the smoke . From all around . Burn Hollywood burn . ' But I was n't smelling the smoke . Or seeing the flames . I feel distant , removed and confused . I have just spent several hours glued to the television at a friend 's house , watching in horror as incomprehensible events began to unfold in South Central Los Angeles . When the verdict came down over the radio earlier that afternoon , I thought it had to be some kind of misunderstanding -- a joke .

After a few seconds the red lights on my suit turned to green . The air here was safe for humans . So I took off my spacesuit . Now I could touch and smell things . There was a soft wind . It was cool . I smelt … strange new smells . I smelt living things . Was I smelling the trees … or something else ? I heard a sound of crying . Then I thought I heard something moving in the trees -- just behind one big tree . Was something hiding behind the tree ? I was frightened but I wanted to see , so I walked slowly towards the tree . There was light in this place but there were shadows in the trees . I looked round the tree … I was frightened almost out of my mind .

They crept , developing rudimentary arms with nasty , elongated fingers as they went , groping across the floor towards the two intruders , as if they might not be able to see , but might be able to feel or smell their way to Caspar and Fenella . They were blind , seeking things , reaching out , feeling their way closer with every minute . It was unspeakably horrid to know that a great , slithering , inchoate mass of effluence was crawling and creeping and smelling its way towards you . Fenella said , a bit impatiently , ` Oh , do hurry up , Caspar ! Sha n't we be able to open it ? Is n't it just an ordinary door ?

Can we see the whole race walking , hair now bright , Through shocks of heavenly seizure In the glades of beautiful light ? XXXIV We look for chocolate wrapped in silver paper Or Father Christmas , in from the planet Venus . But he lives in sin and points to wounded feet And hobbles round in distant labour camps Or dies unnoticed in a neighbouring street . He whispers kindly when we start to eat him And peeps at us from eyes of smelly tramps . And , peeping back , we feel we 're smelling death And turn discreetly from distracting life . His scripture is the dirt we 're often doing . He points our noses at our petty strife , Demands the loaves and fishes from our pockets -- Provisions we 're withholding from the war -- But adds , to those who never feel accepted , ` Accept that you 're accepted -- as you are . ' XXXV On the summit of St Thomas 's Hospital tower I felt no doubt .
