The Visit

A little ditty from my buddy Andy across the pond. They are having some snow in Scotland at the moment and they haven’t a clue what to do with it. Tsk! Tsk! I called into the Health Centre To see the practice nurse She said “how are you feeling” I said “I’m feeling worse I don’t know what’s wrong... Sign in to see full entry.

This Month’s Intriguing Comments

I am forever hearing or reading comments that intrigue me, and I keep wishing I’d written them down. I’ve decided to write them down at last. Let’s start with December 2009. ‘ It takes twice as long to have a pee now that we have to wash our hands.’ The comment was made unthinkingly by a billiard... Sign in to see full entry.

Merry Christmas Everybody Ho! Ho! Ho!

NaNoWriMo Chris Baty of National Novel Writing Month sent me an email yesterday. In it he said he had bumped into my novel and it was asking how I was. Which basically meant, ‘ Where the hell are you?’ It is hard to believe that not even a month has gone past since I saw that ‘Winner’ certificate on... Sign in to see full entry.

Snow to Panama?

It is yet another surreal world out there. Mother Nature has been training snowflakes all night and watching the innocent flight of the virgin snowflake stirs up the most basic emotion. They drift down before drifting back up, reluctant to take that final plunge into the white wilderness beneath... Sign in to see full entry.

I had an Interesting Conversation with our Doctor yesterday…..

It was also the first conversation I’ve ever had with a doctor. I am of the generation when Doctors were Gods, as were Bank Managers, Post Masters, anybody in any kind of uniform, and Parents. I may have mentioned ad nauseum that one of the first shocks I got when I arrived here was when Ell took me... Sign in to see full entry.

AZUR, PAT_B, TAPS, SAM444, WHACKY, MNEME, MAJROJ, BC-A, JOLLYJEFF

I wish to thank you profusely for your support over the month of November – NaNoWriMo month. Without your encouragement and believe in my ability, I would have given up almost three weeks ago. I submitted my draft novel this evening, the 29th, with a count of 50,064 words –you can tell I don’t like... Sign in to see full entry.

My God! My God!

I promised myself I wouldn’t stroke my own ego again regarding the NaNoWriMo, especially after jollyjeffs comment, but this will be the last time, honest. Do I sound like a Microsoft advert by any chance? Ell’s away uptown to get some groceries and probably speak to some real people instead of a... Sign in to see full entry.

36,294 to Date

Only 13,706 to go. So far I’ve done this Ell’s way – just start at one end and keep working. Don’t sit back and imagine how difficult it’s going to be – do it. I find it difficult to believe that I’ve actually written over 36,000 words. No they aren’t all spelled properly. No they aren’t... Sign in to see full entry.

Ell Successful at ‘Dash for Cash.’

If you read the last post, you would know about Ell winning a competition. A dash for cash at her favourite hockey team’s ice rink. She was nervous every day until the 11th, and I kept soothing her feelings by saying things like ‘imagine being in the middle of a skating rink in front of 20,000... Sign in to see full entry.
