SHIFTING SHAPES AND SHADOWS!!!

Then, of course, there was the humble candle. It had its own little metal tray, or saucer, with a handle attached. Candles were great for a quick, natural light in the dark, but not so good if one had to walk anywhere with them. Then, because we had moved, they would flicker and faint like some frail, frightened maiden. We would then have to stand stock still... waiting for them to recover. NEW BLOG POST LIVE!!!

WIGGLES & GIGGLES!!!

As a firm believer in laughter being the best medicine, after the old GP, who had absolutely no sense of humour, had checked my blood pressure, sugar levels, lung function and eyesight, he held up one finger asking how many I could see, then moved it from side to side, noting how I tracked the movement.

THE SOUND OF SILENCE!!!

Come to think of it. Maybe those bath interruptions were not the worst, perhaps those that ripped me from my slumbers were. The rage that would engulf me on these occasions would be dizzying. I imagined him, or her,
giggling at the other end of the line, absolutely delighting in my frustration and fury.

The calls were beginning to affect my health. The constant interruption of my sleep was tiring me out. I was becoming irritable. All I wanted was to have a good night's sleep but found even when the phone did not ring, I still lay awake, waiting for, and dreading the sound of its bell.

FLUNDLE: A MIXED UP BUNDLE OF FUN!!

On my hike down memory lane, I stumbled across this gem.......... FLUNDLE: A MIXED UP BUNDLE OF FUN! Some people in this world have an almost mystical affinity with animals.

Using them was an interesting experience.

DIMMED BRILLIANCE!

My son, Brent, was to my mind, the perfect child. He did not do any of things his elder brother or sister did. He did not play hooky, Nor did he show the complete lack of interest in anything educational, like. his sister, Laura. She preferred to spend her mind on things more important, like animals, or fairies, or some such........ click too find out more.

THE DARK SIDE OF MOONING PART 2

Following his ’mooning’ accident, and with a shattered pelvis, my son, Sean, was faced with months of bedridden immobility in the local hospital. He had to lie as still as possible, to give his bones a chance to repair themselves. As he was otherwise perfectly healthy this became an interminable, boring, experience.............

On my hike down memory lane, I stumbled across this gem......... Tractor or Detractor!

One of his tales was that of … Continue reading TRACTOR OR DETRACTOR!
