Ha, ha...Having almost fingerpicked myself into a pleasant coma and worn grooves into my fingertips...I return to this game which makes me laugh aloud. It is just so...mad...and I can't solve it...
Can you?

The other side of the street is the French Quarter. They are taking it in turns to host five hour lunch parties on their porches, which means they will soon be heading back to Normandy and Paris.

The screaming heebie-jeebie baby family have finally left next door and the fellow that cleans the place has quickly moved back in. You know...the one that plays "Ayee, ayee, the canary's gone and died on us."

Medieval market in the next town this weekend. Will Melodeon Man show up? He didn't last year. Here's what he sounds like...Sorry about the shake but he makes me wobble at the knees...

Queen Bee

Well, it's a bee Jim, but not as we know it. Madness descending next week. The floors are being swapped from an ancient set of tiles that look as if the designer had been inspired by a dalmatian and a Yorkshire terrier being caught in the path of a WW11 bouncing bomb...and being replaced...well...with normal tiles.

Where am I going to put the books? The guitars? Patrick is almost grey at the thought of change. And if I get all the books into boxes...where am I going to put the boxes?

Blue Peter could run for three years using the stuff in the cupboard just in this room.

I have never "had the builders in" in my life...getting wobbly here.

Ominous Music

Today, for ten minutes, it rained the soft, slow rain of the Scottish Highlands. It took me to Glen Coe and Arisaig and the caravan in Peter MacDonald's field on the white beach.

However the holidaymakers next door are having a horrible time with two babies who scream and scream. Hans, the plumber up the road has been hammering and drilling in there for days. I really feel sorry for them.

Oh, and be sure to watch this. It's true...honest.
