Reading With Eyes Closed.
Tsk! What a to do! I wrote, in English, that I was away for a few days and I return to find that people do not read the words i struggle so hard "cough" to place before them. In 'Miscellany' I said I would be away and you ignored it. Pah! Anyway I was of to sunnier climes, to good food, warm house, clean sheets, and fine company, alas also lots of appallingly bad television. That's another story.
You will be delighted to await the several hundred pictures, some properly in focus, that will follow in the following days. Holiday pictures abound and some people find them boring. I had to sit through forty minutes of video taken at the Victoria Falls in Zambia without ever grumbling once, although the crocodile slipping silently into the water made a comment rise in my throat I can tell you! How many locals he had eaten was anybody guess.
The sound of the sea and the aroma of the briny filled my head on at least one occasion and a trip to a far of land, nine miles, took us out of ourselves for a day. I was force marched, in my condition, on several occasions aided only by my companions damaged hips and similar restrictions as myself. They even forced me to work, getting my hands dirty for the first time in years, and thought this amusing. It was only the thought of the food when we returned that kept me breathing otherwise I may well have collapsed and awaited the ambulance.
Right I am exhausted from travelling on Britain's luxurious railways, which I must say was actually enjoyable today, I did pray hard about both journeys, and then running up the road to the shops to put something in the fridge before I collapsed in bed for a while. Worse still I had to watch Ross County defeating Aberdeen 2-0 tonight thus being unable to write anything on here. The lack of substance inside my head also legislates against this at the moment I admit. So I am back to bed and tomorrow I will be ready for ...going back to bed.
Lova & kisses etc...
