Drums, lions and the polar ice cap
So today was bank holiday Monday, the August Bank Holiday Monday the last few days when we traditionally run off to the sea making sand castles eating ice cream wearing shorts and sunglasses and smiling. In reality that was not the case as the weather was predicted to be not nice, and this morning it was less not nice than we had anticipated making us all think ooooooooo maybe it will be OK and we can do things outside. Maybe like run off to the sea making sand castles eating ice cream wearing shorts and sunglasses and smiling. But before we could seriously consider the options it started to rain get very grey and become cold and horrible.
It meant I retreated to the Orange room again to clear some space as my drumming colleague was due to turn up (he turned up) to drum this evening
As it turned out when we did start drumming the acoustics were rather interesting. You would think rooms in a house would generally be the same acoustically but no they differ immensely. So it appears the orange room will be perfect for guitars but I will need to experiment with the drums a bit. We also decided that we would play an African drum version of the classic song ‘Fanfare to the Common Man in Space’ as our final hooray to Mr Neil Armstrong…..Although we are not sure what his views on African Drumming were…
I noticed also on the news on the wireless that the polar ice sheet has now shrunk to the smallest in recorded history, although that is only thirty years. But rather than think o dear poor old polar bear everyone is sending oil expiration vessels, and you can’t help but wonder if it will all end in tears.
Oooooo and I notice the Lion running wild in the south of England might be a ginger tom cat, no look I am sorry but are they all wimps down there how do you mistake a ginger cat and a lion….
I think in short I am saying not much happened today…… Maybe I should retire I am running out of creative stream…….
