Now What?

There is no grass to lie in anymore and the clouds are one mass of grey. I’m hardly likely to find an abandoned Chevy in Yorkshire or a cassette of Little Willie John, but I do know a place down by the crazy river. Great song.



Obsessed by deserted places, I love the river with it’s lonely, or even sunken  boats – we are owners rather than doers aren’t we? How many people received treadmills and exercise bikes for Christmas which will be nothing more than clothes dryers in a month? Joining a Gym doesn’t get you fit, going to a Gym does that. Of course there’s my bike in the garage, I’ve repaired the inner tube more times than I’ve ridden it. How many resolutions have been broken after 4 days into 2019 I wonder?  You may have noticed I am a little melancholy? Well, I’ve noticed during the past 4 days that everything and everyone is out to annoy me, in other words I’ve stopped smoking simply to get more oxygen into my lungs when I’m running, but I’m also doing dry January and now I have caught the cold from the princess, who incidentally is no longer a princess, but is, in actual fact the “I’ve got a good idea. Lets stop drinking and smoking,” bitch from hell who lives here, she’s against me too, there is a plot, you know. See! (too many commas, the commas are annoying me, I’m going,  see you next week –  Harrumph 😦

    No wonder you are grumpy.
    Quitting smoking AND drinking!!!
    Be a little kinder to yourself.

    We can’t lie on our grass.

    Have not had rain forever.

    The grass is brown and crackles when you walk on it!

    When you’re over the hump, you’ll thank the Princess for the “let’s not drink and smoke” suggestion later. I promise! πŸ˜‰

    In the interim go kick ass out of 2019 with your new set of lungs and liver, Charlie Boy! 😏

  7. Been there, done that. If you and the princess survive, both of you will be happier, healthier people. It truly is a bitch during the process. Great photos, your ’57 Chevy?

    • Thanks Larry, yeah I’m just hoping to knock 3 mins off my 5k as I’m stuck at the moment, gee I wish it was my Chevy, I remember after hearing that Robbie Robertson song about 30 years ago I had a specific image in my mind but couldn’t find it, πŸ˜€

  8. You may be suffering, but I just got to hear a Little Willie John song. Any day that starts out with Little Willie John promises to be good. Thank you! I’m going to go seek out more LWJ . . . you might want to do the same….

    If you get through the month, Charlie, it’s almost licked. It took about six weeks for me (with the smoking) haven’t looked back – that was back in the 80s. Brand new lungs now! Hahaaa..
    That ‘princess’ sure is a wise girl… Good luck with it! πŸ™ƒπŸ˜πŸ˜Ž

  18. In search of comfort zones. can create a crazy frenzy when life us ever changing and dissolves in time eating away opportunities and decisions. Only statues and trees know this reality.
