a possible voice in the wilderness

My posting has been a bit spotty of late. 

Well, I may not have been up with the birdies like Drew, I guess 7:30am isn’t exactly the crack of dawn. Is it?

Have been taking care of wife a lot who is on the mend but still not well enough in many respects to look after herself. She’s on mega doses totaling I think 7 pills. A day.  Plus the liquid pain med. which is Morphine.  Which after awhile makes her, not spacey, not high, nothin’ like that. But it does something and makes a change I don’t have the vocabulary to describe.  Nothing urgent, but somehow different for several hours.

And then there’s our back yard, or as it would be referred to here, our back garden.
It’s been sadly neglected for too long.  Partly due to very bad weather, lots of rain, which even so me and the birds have been out in working anyway.
Took advantage of a few very good days and really went to work weeding stinging nettles taller then me. I’m 5-10 and some of those darn things really tower over me.  Cutting and trimming bushes and cutting away dead branches from trees, cutting away the ivy that’s been winding its way around everything.  Hired a guy with a pick up to haul away all the stuff and now have more. Lots more.  But after yesterday I just had to take today off.  Muscles ache from lack of exercise, and a bum left knee and arthritic feet not too happy with me. But it’s funny how much better I feel once the days work is done.  I actually look forward to the next days work.

So that’s some of what I’ve been up to.

Reading papers about the Olympics, not a lot cos I don’t care that much.  But what I have seen in the reports, is everyone crying. It’s so nice to see the guys find their feminine side and break out in tears. Innit it?  Jeesh.  There’s a brief line about two skull rowers, the poor, poor guys (two of them) were in tears because they won silver instead of the gold they missed by fractions of a second. Is that something for anyone to cry over publicly?
And everyone’s doing it.

Those of you who know some of my habits will also know I relate so many things to music. Not the closing ceremonies which I caught a fraction of here at the computer.  I don’t understand the people who actually believe what they were listening to was really music.  I can think of so many other words to describe the crap being amplified and the silly looking dancers and stupid looking costumes, etc.,etc.

Okay so then back to what I wanted to say before I sidetracked myself.

I relate things to music and think that the theme for the closing ceremonies should have been:

CRY ME A RIVER

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
