Sorry to be ‘boring’ but it really has been quiet again today so far.
Not that I mind. Sometimes its nice to be able to get on with things undistracted. (‘Undistracted’ just started flashing with red-underlying as a spelling error … ‘not in dictionary’. In other words, not a word. Well, I just can’t be bothered to check it because it looks right to me, so it is a word now!).
As nothing much has happened, there’s precious little news.
‘Babs the Witch’ is still facing the wall, and I’m going to hide it completely next time I get any visitors (except the person who so kindly gave it to me). Gareth has seen it now, incidentally, and he agrees its enough to off-put anybody. If any newspapers accidentally saw that, they could probably quite rightly accuse me of ‘practising black magic’! Either that, or I’d be accused of turning the place into another ‘London Dungeon’ complete with hideous old aged witchcraft relics.
Which reminds me, talking of aged relics, somebody sent me a link very recently to a short film on You Tube interviewing different people about ‘vampires’. I have never seen so much rubbish in all my life. I just couldn’t believe some of the puerile nonsense (about what sort of stakes should be used to ‘stake vampires’) some people are prepared to say just to get themselves on television! More astonishing is that a tiny handful of people actually accept such claims, and even go on to try and defend these by way of acquiescence or in the name of the Church.
To hear such God forsaken nonsense (meant quite literally here) is to make one wonder where you draw the line between sanity and insanity; or rather insanity trying to pose as that which is sane. It’s a very sick world sometimes, that’s all I can really say. Give me ‘Babs the Witch’ anytime, I say! At least any evil there is contained within an inanimate object, and its always open to you to simply ‘throw it away’.
As I believe I mentioned in a reply to someone here yesterday, I actually got a response to the Metro article from one of my first girlfriends who I had not seen since 1962. Well, I suppose it does go all over London, so I can’t imagine who else might have seen it. Probably many more people out of London now, now that we have posted it on my main Website.
Letters scarce in the past few days. Could be one of those local ‘go slows’ at the local Post Office, I don’t know. Only one letter really of interest but . . . I don’t know who its from! Definitely meant for me that’s clear as its addressed personally to myself, but the person just signed a ‘close friend’. Came here, so obviously nothing to do with the Metro this one. It wasn’t nasty, just one of those ‘seductive’ anonymous letters which tell you what the person feels but don’t tell you anything about the person.
Looking through some old quarterly magazines today for possible research material to include in the new chapter. Most about Robin Hood, but there’s stacks about myself with pictures as well. All good stuff as its all complementary! Nice to be appreciated sometimes, even in retrospect! In fact, I am not overlooking ANY past material. It will all be included if it is relevant, as some of it clearly is. Its got an ISSN so its ideal material for reference.
Well, that’s about it for today everyone. Everything is still quiet, so I guess I’ll leave this until tomorrow
