Oldie Times (25 March 2009)

I was so excited yesterday, not so much because I was 60 but because it was my birthday. I have to admit that the day before, on the 23rd, the realisation that I was turning old hit me like a...

Wild Garlic on mothers day (22 March 2009)

Today I walked the orchard. Through the apple and pear trees. Over the style and I swear I could feel Jackson. I sat on the wooden cross bar and hung my head. The tears behind my eyelids were ready to...

The Big Mario (20 March 2009)

Intolerance (10 March 2009)

I have been practicing I WILL SURVIVE. I've re-written the words so that when I stand up on MARCH 26th in CROYDON to celebrate being sixty and old I will be slick and well oiled. I am having to write...

Extremes means Heinz ( 3 March 2009)

You walk some you ride some. You bus some you tube some. You train some you run some. This morning I walked some then treated myself to a Number 24 bus. I was forty-five minutes late. There are more traffic...
