Have you noticed how the warm glow of alcohol is hugely increased when you are among friends? I'm not even a particular lover of beer, but I had a few pints yesterday, and they went down so well among good company and I had a lovely 'only slightly drunk' time at the
There was a young violinist at open mic and he played along when I sang Danny Boy. It added a real plaintive note to the song. I really enjoy it when something like that happens. It made a good day even better. Thanks Jon.
I just had to leave this keyboard for a half hour. I had some unexpected visitors: Jehovah's Witnesses. I must be in a good mood because I invited them for a cup of coffee. We sat at the table outside in the sun and chatted about God and stuff like that. I quite enjoyed their visit. They didn't try and convert me. I suppose they know a hopeless cause when they see one.
As they left they told me their names. The bloke's name was; I can't remember his name. The woman's name was Shirley. When she told me her name I said to her I won't forget your name, because I was brought up in a children's home called 'Shirley Oaks'. She then told me that she lived near the home when she was a girl and some friends of hers were in that same children's home. But the really odd thing was her surname, Oak. I thought it was some coincidence that I had just mentioned Shirley Oak's children home to a woman who knew the place well, but blimey, her name was Shirley Oak! How weird is that?
She was a good looking woman too. I could tell she fancied me. Practically threw herself at me she did! It was all I could do to stop her ripping my clothes off.
I should have got her phone number. Never mind, they have invited me to their next bible study meeting. Maybe I will ask her then? Oh God forgive me. I sound a bit desperate. I mean to say, going to a bible study just to chat up a woman. What sort of bloke would do that? Who? A bloke like me? No. Never. I'm only joking. Where's that leaflet they gave me?
I just looked the the preview of this post and there are lots of white spaces. Sorry about that. It's what happens when I leave a link to Open Mic with Sedge and Jon.
