Just Touching Base

Saturday, June 14th, 2008

I am sorry to have left the Traffic story in limbo, but I will post the next part sometime towards the end of next week and I hope to finish the story off asap.

I have been tucked up with funerals and the like and am currently away on a little job and will not be back in the UK until Thursday of next week.   I wish I could say it was nice and that I was having a lovely time, but it isn’t and I am not.  Keep watching the BBC website  and the Africa pages, it seems as if the whole continent is hurtling into total mayhem.

Still for us it’s and ill wind that blows no good and there is a lot of money to be made by some, the problem is choosing the right side and I don’t just mean the ones who will win and pay you, but the RIGHT side.

The thing is that I don’t know if there is a right side at the moment.

The Grim Reaper

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

The Grim Reaper has been playing havoc in the last few weeks.

First Harry The Dog.

Then Eve, my mate Billys mum – she was like a second mum to me since I was 8.  She was always there for a chat and a cuppa if I was passing through York.

Yesterday my sister aged 48 from cancer of the Ovaries.  We didn’t see a lot of each other but we understood each other and got on pretty well.

Death is a big part of my life,  but jeez this is taking the piss.

My next posts will be on the merits of undertakers and the best funeral sandwiches.   Actually Eves are in front.  They do a nice sarnie at the Chase Hotel York should you be interested.  Their lemon cake is pretty good as well.

Sadly my sister had moved south so no lemon cake for me, besides which her old man is a bit of tihght wad

Upwards and onwards.
