Gone Fishing…

 Well not fishing really, though hopefully there will be loads of the aforementioned aquine critters abounding, we are off to Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt for a week, to do some proper diving
Hopefully we will be seeing a few of these
some of these…….
and none of these bastards…….
as my wet suit will turn brown!!
 I dont believe the weather is too hot there at the moment , but its got to be better than here!
( just checked .. its 20c  at the moment ..   ..brilliant! ) 
What’s all this stuff I keep hearing about spring coming??
Admittedly it seems to be a tad warmer, but is it really here yet??
A few swallows do not a summer make.. or something like that!
Anyway, we hope to do spend a few days underwater, keep in good health, & not get the shits, like everybody else does that goes out there!
So if you pop & I’m not here, don’t worry.. I haven’t left the country… er… actually I have,  but only for a short time, , but as a famous large Austrian once said " I’ll be back! "
I will try to make some space calls before we go, but if I don’t manage it, many many apolologies, & I will see you when we get back.
Toodle pip chaps I’m off to learn to learn a bit of Egyptian!
Fez Time… what do you think?
Do I look pissed or what!!!
Seadog flu / gout update….
Happily I appear to have recovered from all my afflictions, both flu & gout.
Many many thanks to everyone who  passed on their good wishes for my speedy recovery, I’m sure it helped !

Time….Time To Reflect

Time – He’s waiting in the wings
He speaks of sensless things
His script is you and me, boy.
  Time…. now there’s a thing… friend or foe….
When you are young, time is an unquantifiable thing..minutes seem like days, christmas never comes….
You get a bit older & all of a sudden days seem like minutes, and you are left thinking " where did that go?"
2 years ago today my gran died  age 99 ( just ) after a short ilness caused by a stroke.
6 weeks from admission to final release, this time 2 years ago, time seemed to stand still, as we rushed around all the legal departments getting certificates, and making arrangements for her funeral.
The sudden realisation that there was no more time for chats, and laughs, sharing stories, and enjoying each others company.
Where did those 2 years go???
Where did those 99 years go?
Till we meet again……

Catherine – My Gran
24.12.1906 – 10.1.2006
99 Years 17 days
