Late Morning Walks

Ever so often you’ll meet people, who the general public have pronounced, somewhat batty. I am always looking for these people, they offer an excellent insight, for they are usually far less inhibited in their behaviour and speech (which is one of the reasons why they are thus categorised, I presume). I met one suchContinue reading “Late Morning Walks”


The tremors have finally stopped. I am a reasonably poor eater, my father had bought me some incredibly disgusting tonic, to take every morning, to improve my appetite.

I had taken my kidContinue reading “Learning. Not.”
