  • My Life and Times

    I was born in 1939 BC.
    That’s ‘Before Computers’.

    Luckily I survived the following events in my life, such as

    World War II, The London Blitz, Rationing, and worst of all… Archbishop Temple’s School.

    During the mid 1950s I was enjoying Rock ‘n’ Roll and being a first generation teenager, when suddenly, just like Elvis, I found myself in uniform during ‘The Cold War’…and then

    I became ‘a family’. Which meant that I sort of missed the ‘swinging sixties’, but still managed to look a complete prat in the 70s, just like everyone else.

    During the ‘Thatcher Years’ I lost my hair and a lot of people lost a good deal more. My career fluctuated to say the least as I was demoted, promoted, fired and hired a number of times, but still I managed to stagger on into a welcome retirement and to celebrate 56 years of happy marriage.

‘Sun Seekers’.

Posted by Big John on January 20, 2017

The weather has been so cold lately that my old brain has developed a case of ‘Below Zero Blogger’s Block’, so until my grey matter stops shivering, my wit warms up and some inspirational thoughts thaw out, here are a few pictures taken in my garden this morning, as the sun melted away the night’s frost …

“Blimey ! That was a cold night”

“Real ‘brass monkeys’ weather”.

“Never mind, it’s the mating season

“She doesn’t look too interested”.

“I think I’ll take a nap before we get to bonking in the bushes”.

What do you mean .. “In your dreams” ?

    I’d say your sense of humor is never at rest. On a different note I want to apologize to you and all my friends outside the borders of the United States for the horrendous acceptance speech that our (ugh) new President made yesterday. Please believe that there are tens of millions of us that want to have WORLD PEACE … not just within the States of America.

  4. What Ginnie said. Many nationsl need to work together to root out the bad guys in the world.
