Eh!

It was a coin toss as to whether new tires should be bought for the car. A big expense, as big as slipping off the road and kissing the bottom of a ditch, or a wall! Well, so far the days and nights have been balmy, 12 degrees today and soaking wet at times, with […] Continue reading

Where is here?

There IS a somewhere else, I know it, and while, like most children, I can’t tell you anything about it, I distinctly remember arriving in this reality, and discovering I was me. I was four years old, a sturdy, busy sort of little person, sitting, legs dangling over the back of a farm trailer, being […] Continue reading

Blog on.

At the beginning of 2011, a difficult year with too many sharp edges and sudden drops in it, I knew nothing about Weblogs.

Santa on his way

Just how bad could it get? Santa didn’t fancy tiptoeing across the rooms from the fireplace to the Christmas trees with his big toes and heels sticking out of his socks. What a poor figure he’d cut if anyone saw him, which was unlikely, but nevertheless! No one would have believed he was the real […] Continue reading

There is a saying, comes from British Comedy TV a long time ago, I think: “Come the Revolution you can have all the ice cream you like!” “I don’t like ice cream.” “Come the Revolution you’ll @#&** well have to eat it!” All significant Change is revolution, a going around again, and oh, how humans […] Continue reading

Bells Alarums!

How Santa Lost His Socks and Found Them (part 3) Alarm clocks should, on principle, be banned. However, if that was to happen, nothing would ever get done on time. Some folk, of course, would think that not such a bad idea. Wrapped in the arms of Morpheus, more tired than he knew, Santa wouldn’t […] Continue reading
