You got me singing the blues

We brought Alexa away with us on this trip. Having discovered that The Animals had new albums out this year, we instructed Alexa to play one of them to us and I have to say that I am enjoying it thoroughly. Old material in a new compilation, I believe. I think that I had completely forgotten just how much that I love their music.

It is made all the better for the knowledge that my mother hated Eric Burden, and with a vengeance ?

You know, for a self-professed Christian, I have met few persons less charitable than that woman. If any. She was very nasty about a wide range of persons that she had not met and was not qualified to criticise. In my experience she was always willing to see the worst in anybody. Especially myself. I was perennially the bad guy. I most likely still am, if she is still with us.

You know what, mum? Fuck you.

Whoops, I may be tipsy.

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”?

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM

    I’ll drink to that. Do you think that’s why ‘he’ hasn’t come back? His followers do seem to be universally the most horrendous people.

      Sorry, I missed this comment previously. I would add that I have lived a long life and met but two people who looked and behaved as Christians. They were both incredibly happy in their faith and very wonderful people to know. If all Christians were the same then their religion might just get my vote. However, common sense would still tell me that there is no Supreme Being, o f whatever ilk.
