He forgets and she reminds me

Bit of this

Man in a bad mood hasn't brought the address or his phone and can only vaguely remember the instructions of how to get there. We start at the bottom of the dead end, where there is a young girl schooling a horse. And work our way up the lane. 2 men have no idea either but invite himself into look at a Lister engine that I can hear chugging. We eventually find the outfit that do house clearances and he pays for what we have come for.

By now I am knackered and the sodding shoulder is winging. But I nail on a grin and we end up having a nice afternoon in Tewksbury. Man in a bad mood has cheered up and pulls out a picnic basket that he has prepared and we sit by the Severn.

A family of ducks glide past and we are enthralled to see 5 dark brown jobs and 2 golden yellow ones. How odd.

She rings up and reminds me I am going out tomorrow night. Oh blimey I have to start back to work after summer break. I will be asleep all through the film. And probably snore to boot

Bit of that

Here is to meeting lots of new 4 year olds tomorrow.

I was introduced to Shel Silverstien by my sister in law who lives on the states. He has a poem for nearly every occasion. I even had one read at my sons funeral.
