North easterly wind. Cold. Spook scratches. Pickle warms. Spyche sleepless. Gas fire burns. Memories of toasting forks and folks now gone. Tea and honey the thing.
Five years silent, but ‘there we are’. Now re-membered, revisited. YoYo Amore and Sweetbean suffer. Medecin, Rockit and Mixit have mates. Dougal and Zeb expand. Fineline and Homebase cook. Juggler and JoJo go to 2Js. Spyche and Settings double up and count the creaks. Mrs Maynot causes collective despair.
It’s been a year since Spyche had hutzpah: now prosthetic ally enabled, the scribe is back, out of the shadow and into lighter times; Self supporting at last.. back to blog ..missed
Spyche’s friend Jolo – http://www.pumpkinpie.net – comes off climbing wall, shatters leg, and is promptly dropped as web wizard by BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council). There’s thoughtful now.
Spyche’s birthday today and little Max’s funeral – Sweetbean (Mrs YoYo Amore) joins tears for a two-year-old whose words were ‘kiss’ and ‘nice’. Dougal double checks Spyche’s age, Settings saves himself, and Juggler makes Spyche laugh. Life catches us out but a blog lives on..
Frozen countryside .. motionless horses cold in rugs.. Clegg on train to Leeds fails to warm spyche’s spirits .. what an entourage – though nice to see he’s travelling economy or what heavies call standard. ‘Didn’t produce his ticket, though’ observes passenger. One of ‘ten-strong’ entourage must have..surely.
River Thames, full moon, Jupiter close by; faithful later still as moon softens and glows low in lightening dawn.. Is there a better place to hear own footsteps on ancient ground?
So he appeared, lad on his back, yard favourite; a good humoured, well-made yearling – his owner’s pride and joy .. far too good for the Derby, we all agreed.. but he could be supplemented, at enormous cost, if he really shapes up well… gently, gently smooth mover
Paucity of spyche’s blogs, a sign of infertile times, but there is news. Sweetbean and Yoyo Amore are married, Dougal and Zeb civilly partnered and this weekend Smoothie, nurseryname for our Derby baby, steps out of his box to say ‘hello, spyche’ (thank you May-an-Injun). Who says dreams don’t come true – watch this space!
Time to shuffle cards, feel pulse, pitch tent at oasis in mind.. do you hear the duffer’s warning? no breeze up this time .. may-an-injun do two-step, early days .. but Derby 14 it is!
