Thought I’d better do another Blog as time is slipping on past June 23rd. And anyway, it stops K. nagging me. (Sorry K!).
Well, the “Pact” book does seem to have caused a bit of a storm – although not just in a tea cup! I seem to have got a whole trolley load of teapots upset here, and the steam is even coming out of the cosies! Well, I’m afraid that’s just ‘tough’! You see, if all these nutcases stopped making all these ridiculous allegations about myself, I’d have no need to answer. But (for the benefit of some of the ‘nutcases’), the book is out now, I’m afraid – both in England and the USA (and much further afield if you count Amazon as well) and there’s nothing you are really left with to whine about. Although some people will most probably will just keep on ‘whining’. The truth has a funny way of upsetting people.
Well, I had my cold beers last night. I went out this afternoon to get some more (for tonight) and a beautiful Spanish-looking lady came and sat next to me at the bus stop. It was after 3 and she remarked how quiet everything was (no cars people, nothing). Probably because of the football, I told her, but that I didn’t even have a television. She told me it was England and Germany (which I didn’t even know!), and when the bus came, and she saw me struggling with the beers, she stood back to let me go before her.
She was dressed in a flimsy white dress and her legs were deep brown where she’d obviously been in the sun. At least, I think. Spanish people have naturally brown skin, so its sometimes hard to tell.
She was getting off at the same stop as myself and again, she stepped back to let me get off first.
All I could say was ‘thank you’, but then added as an after-thought (without thinking as usual!) . . . “I should have said, ‘beauty before age!”. She laughed and just said . . . “Thank YOU. Have a good day”.
I couldn’t help noticing just how kind some people can be. It sure made a change from all the treachery and deceit I’d been subjected to by a female back in 2006 and into 2007. But then, that’s why I’ve written the book. But the book seemed miles away then, genuine reality seemed to have taken its place.
Another ‘genuine reality’ is yet to come. I still haven’t drunk those beers yet!
For now everyone,
