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...

Now I'm trying to work out where this is?

Ears duly boxed for inattention in class....

i suppose you now need another holiday to get over this one.

Leo visited the dreaded Falls when a much yoinger man...he was out for a stroll when he came to a stream which he jumped, then, looking back, saw that it was full of baby crocs. Thinking of the power of a mother's love he legged it back to the hotel...

I knew you were away for a few days...I read what you wrote, advising us of same, but that doesn't mean I couldn't reprimand you and tell you it was time to return to the fold!!

I'm glad you enjoyed your break away, even if you were forced to work your fingers to the bone, and made march for miles and miles and miles and more miles. Is that really how you got your hands dirty? You were marching on all fours!!! At least you were fed well for your efforts!

So stop your whingeing...be thankful there are some in the world who miss you! :)

Carol, Indeed, now write 100 lines I must read what I am reading.

Mo, This is Waterloo station or the Isle of Wight in the far distance.

Fly, I am tired! Sooo tired after that. I need to exercise more and it showed this week. So glad he avoided the croc!

Lee, You did not! You missed it and worried yourself sick - or not as the case may be. Marching on all fours was close at times...

Ah, the sound of the sea! Did you balance any stones on the pebble beach?

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Alas, life is so much simpler when no one cares if you live or die.

Adullamite said...

Kay, No I did not!

Jerry, So I have discovered...

I was away too and nobody missed me. This might be because I didn't tell anyone. Travelling cross country on the railways in Britain is usually not an occupation which I enjoy very much. I'm for Gordon the Express Engine rather than Thomas the Tank when it comes from getting from A to B.
