I don't wish for many things for myself because I'm fortunate enough not to need to wish for things. However I was at an afternoon garden-party at a friend's on Tuesday and happened to be talking to a delightful lady who mentioned that she could whistle. Please don't ask me how the topic came up. As you will know from a recent post it's not something I can do so I certainly did not raise the subject. However few people I've heard can whistle quite so loudly that it actually hurt my ears when I stood in front of them. Louise, however, can. Boy, was I impressed! The whistler was not maintaining that she could do much better. Perhaps. But I wasn't going to be the one standing in front and that close again without earplugs.
