After posting that last ramble of mine, entitled “Surprised”, complete with suitable smileys, I anticipated a completely different reaction to the one I received. Well I did drop a few hints near the end; at least I thought they were, and thought I might have aroused some curiosity on the part of the reader,
But no, not a one, I thought there was a bit of a nibble on the bait from the philosophermouse, at one stage, but it came to nothing.
Must admit I was a bit embarrassed, and did feel ashamed too; all the real concern for my health, and well being, was not what I was expecting, and it looked to me like I must have been looking for some sympathy; which is definitely not my style. That’s if I have any of that stuff! I’m pretty content with my lot, well I am most of the time.
Whilst I’ve been flopping around, doing precious little, I’ve been thinking over most of the stuff that I’ve posted, and it dawned on me that all the “good” stuff, happened before I met the War Office. There hasn’t been that much since. There are a few stories I could relate, especially of the time I was pushing a cab around Sydney, and when I bought a cab and went ‘Bush”.
The past few days I’ve been feeling pretty good, a couple of weeks back, I had to go see Prof. Kilian; the hearts specialist. The War Office wonders why I bother, as they can’t do anything with what’s ticking away inside me, but I like the bloke and it’s nice to go for a chat and gets me out for an hour or so.
Anyway he said to me, “a nip of brandy now and again wouldn’t do you much harm”; so I went and bought a bottle of the stuff. Must admit I don’t like it, can’t stand the smell for one thing, however, I forced some down, and must admit it did make me feel quite well. Gagged a bit on the first bottle, but the seconds not causing too many problems, and is making me feel quite fit, I’m breathing much easier, so I’ll keep having a nip, well more like a slug of the stuff, and get myself motivated.
I’ve got quite a few more B.T.W.O. tales, quite a few in fact, that I want to get down, not sure about posting them all, but I’m keen to get that thing that I started for my granddaughters, which so far is running to well over 100 pages, so I haven’t been entirely lax and lazy. finished.
If I ever get to write about 21st century episodes you may expect to read of the time I was arrested by Hawai’i 50; I do know there’s one young lady wanting the story. 😈
