G'moanin g'moanin - cept its not, it's evening and the bear has just arrived back in the cave in downtown Apsley from three days in a seaside cave in Exmouth devon. I wish you could post pictutres as well as words on this site as I took some great pictures. Sorry to read eveerybody's been unwell of late - all I can report is my right hand has decided it ain't gonna work and resembles a claw. The mere suggeston
to mommy bear that a massage might be in order was greeted with a soudn unlike one I have heard this side of Jurassic Park. II was only loooking for shoulders and arm!!! I really do hope that Yal, el, ducky, erin boo and the rest are improved for the weekend and that the trail ride sounds a good idea - make mine a donkey please. I remember when I was a kid and we played cowboys and indians therer would always be arguments about who would be who and I always wanted to be the horse!!! A palomino to boot. Some say I was a strange child, I don't know why. Well aks yourself the question, how many horses got killed in the films? At least I got to stay on my feet in the games.
What's Pimlico? A racetrack?We get the US racing on satellite here but it takes me all my time to pick winners in the domestic racing. Do you have jumps racng over there?
I read a wonderful description of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill by Hunter Thompson - I laughed til I cried. He's my favourite US writer adn I have lots of his books - not to everybodys taste mind. I'm also trying to get into Walt Whitman - another acquired taste I believe.
Does anybody outt there know Alexandria old town va? I stayed there 4 years ago for a week - fell in the potomac - don't ask why, iit's embarassing. Even today. Found a ggreat music bar the laughing lizard lounge -I'm hoping to revisit in july - but not the potomac. Not a good idea. No.
Who have the sabresgot this weekend Yal? Tthe bear cub has managed to download lots of hockey games from the web but thee seems to be little hockey going on and lots of wrestling doubling as ice dancing and waving at each other - you can just imagine them saying 'after you, do hurt your knuckles on my helmet' and the other guy resonding ' not at all chap, after you and do feel free to use this stick I found lying around". Or some such words. It makes great entertainment and every now and then they throw a puck on the ice for show. Great fun.
I sympathise with the dude who has a thing about needles - I avoid them like the plague and I don't nkow how I would cope if I wasa diabetic or had to self inject like Yalinda. I'd want the numbing cream all over mybody.
And as for the squirts, well we do dicuss and nform about some really sweet subjects here don't we. You'd never find the pd-ers talking about body functions n the same way but that's why I'm over here and not over there most of the time.
We can buy these amazing capsules n the pharmacy here that stop the squits withng half an hour but there again they then stop everything for days - one door closes etc
I've only ben home a couple of hours and I mis the sea already - I used to live in Devon and I still miss it 25 years on. Anybody out there live near the sea? It would appear that the bebar cub has gone vegetarian while I was away and now we all have dfferent meals time for the gruelI'll post back later and hey Ducky is there any way of posting seaside landscapes?
Take care and stay well people
Bear hugs to you all
