Burnt Bonce


I met two friends today.

I met them in separate meets
one in a garden
The other outside Theatr Clwyd 

I burnt my head in the hot sun at the theatre and
I have to say I travelled a little longer than my allotted but suggested 5 miles
(14.9 miles to be exact)
But in Wales driving 5 miles gets you nowhere.
Literally nowhere


Having no coffee room to go to , it was initially strange meeting my friend on the long grass outside the theatre. Theatr Clwyd looked fallorn
Unused and unloved and silent. My friend and I lay in the grass like schoolboys and swapped stories whilst watching the sky.
We were suddenly boys in the school yard and not 50 something men
Talking while watching the clouds amble by.


Tonight was our 10 th Weekly choir meet on Zoom
This week was more like group therapy with the choir sharing " lockdown" photographs of each of our lives with a discussion of each.
Jamie , sans his 1940s RAF moustache has done a sterling job organising it all
Such is the talent of the wartime forces

 I've been uncharacteristically gay this evening
Moisturiser on face, moisturiser booties on my feet ( thank you Wendy and Alun), and several bulldog covered naps which cooled a hot forehead

The weather is said to break tomorrow....
It's time for rain

    1. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: Emutemple@gmail.com or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.

    Sounds like the perfect day after a busy and precious birthday day. Not the usual anti climax, like 'another day older and deeper in can't as the old song goes. Not bad John Gray! On the way back up in style!

  3. Oops, I haven't been at the computer, and missed wishing you a timely Happy Birthday! Lovely to hear that other people picked up the slack so well. So I'll wish you a very Happy Unbirthday, (thank you Lewis Carroll and Alice)

      Ah, Roger Whittaker ... I remember his Skye Boat song and I think we still have one of his albums (NOT "vinyl"!) from long ago.

      Yes, I can see the resemblance, John.

      Hugs!

  10. Be careful about getting burnt. It can really have bad ramifications later in life.

    1. I laughed out loud at that retort! It's one of the best things about ageing, the anticipation is over!!

  11. Yes. It is time for rain. I hope it comes. The earth needs it and Britain has had a bloody good run this springtime.The best one we have ever known while COVID has hurt our world so much.

  12. I hope the rain comes soon. We need it also. We have 10 active wildfires burning.Four that are prescribed burns to help.

    Hope your sunburn gets better. Here In Tucson we wear sunscreen all the time except for the 2 months of winter. Feel better

  14. Learned a new word today -- BONCE!

  15. Hah - Wales is a lot like where we live. Five miles gets you nowhere here too!

    I'm glad you had a good day, burnt noggin excepted. I'm a little curious as to whether it was the naps or the bulldogs that cooled your head, though. When I fall asleep with a cat on me I wake up in a sweat!

  16. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) helps with sunburn. It stings a bit as you apply it, and you do smell like salad dressing for a few moments, but it really helps taking the sting out of the burn.

    I don't know if white vinegar works as well or at all. I've only ever used ACV.

    Glad you got a chance to visit with a friend. I'm going to visit with one tomorrow, digits crossed. We're meeting at the halfway point between our abodes in part because i have some supplies for her. She bakes quite a bit, and i found a good deal on flour, so i picked up a large bag of it for her.

    We're overdue for a visit.

  17. What a beautiful photo of Wales that is. I think we're expecting rain tomorrow too, I shall mow everywhere today as it now won't be done again for several days.

  25. Good to meet friends. I used to work at Oriel Theatr Clwyd..I think the outside always did look a bit grey and forlorn!

  26. A psychiatrist at our regional childrens hospital is promoting "Free Range Kids". They want kids to get out and run in the brush and climb trees and BE BORED. Your post about laying in the grass watching clouds brought that to mind. Time for the little ones to turn off their devices and lay on the ground watching clouds and develop some imagination! (I often think that there will be no decent books written by the next generation because they will lose the ability to "make something up")

  27. Sounds like a lovely day laying in the grass John, I saw a program on ou knowledge channel about an 800 mile path along the coast of Wales the longest path in the world sounds like quite a challenge and my friend asked me "how many days would it take" at my age I have no intention of finding out she is more gung ho then me.
