Dear Moon et al~
Well I guess your doctor is more versatile than my doctor, I thought it was just the gift of courage unexpected.
Now, to reply to your rather down Billy quote:
O excellent! I love long life better than figs.
Actually I used to really like figs as a lad, they came in little wooden boats with pictures of palm trees and camels on them. If you were lucky a little wooden spear was included to help you eat said figs.
You 'ello 'ello 'ello quote I heard for the 1st time from PC Plod in a Punch & Judy on Hastings beach in the 50's. Most notable for shingle, wind and drizzle. They must have been hardened performers to carry on in that venue.
I was most surprised in your other thread to learn that you felt affinity with the arts and also had to tone yourself down to deal with conservatives, or that you ended up in a field that was not "normal, mediocre, conservative". Actually I'd think any mother would have appreciated a daughter's talent. I'm sure the sight and sound of you bowling would hold all enthralled.
Did you find a movie to watch? Or anyone to drum with?
