Beachcomber's Tales from the day

I'm back on the book now , health issues and "life" [ as in domestic ] got inthe way - both knocking me sidewise for a few years. HOWEVER - this book MUST be completed, it is the amalgam of 60 + years of first hand experiences, - none of this " he said, she said" bullshit.

However, a segway story ............................................................

"Starry, starry night" ........ no not a nod to Vincent or even a romantic interlude.

There I was, staring up at a beautiful nght sky over beautiful downtown Redditch ..................... gentle rain falling on my face .......................................... ahhhhhhh .

oh fuckit, where's the roof of my garage gone !!!!!

Yes, after years of neglect my old garage roof finally caved in.

On the plus side all my neighbours pulled together and replaced the rotten timbers and put new roofing felt on. They refused to take any money for the labour - just had to pay for the materials - £400 ..... could have done without that at this paricular stage in my life, but on the plus side I now have a DRY garage to work in for the first time in 15 years.
 
Happy Burns Night to all my DTT pals ............. from Clan Crawford

Clan Crawford...I have Scottish Crawford's in my lineage.
 
"Not a lot of people know that" ............ apologies to Micheal Caine.

The Tales have been languishing in my out tray for some years now ....... time to make my excuses.

First off - the Book will happen, but I'ts now a slow job.

I have had serious medical issues in the past 4 years, including a return of my kidney issues and a brief flirtation with bowel cancer.

More seriously for me, MrsB 3rd decided to fuck off [ 2016 ] ....... there then followed 3 years of a toxic and subsequently expensive divorce.

One or two ni this parish knew about it, but I didn't want to make a public announcement - and yes it did hurt.

Good news is that my health issues are resolved, the house assets will be divvied up next year and I have a couple of new lady friends.

I will get back into the Tales as soon as the dust settles and then it will become a priority .... I'm 80 next year for fuck's sake - not a lot of time left, especially as I have to move house [ one of the ladyfriends ] and complete my last 2 projects.

So apologies to all that have been waiting for me to pull my finger out, finger coming out soon ..............................................
