Immortality, Franciscan Monks a Steam powered, electro-mechanical person called Igor and a Rabbit


In a battle to become immortal , I have offered my blog (of my daily diary) to the British Library for posterity, I would prefer to offer them the hardback edition with the all its medieval illuminated lettering and the like, but as I am still working on volume three (that’s year three) of what is a long term project the producers of the  hardback edition with all its medieval illuminated lettering, a group of free lance Franciscan Monks living on an isolated rock in the local lake told me to go away. When I say they said go away they shouted stuff in Latin and threw seagulls at me.  However I mentioned that the very nice Steven Spielberg is a regular visitor to my diary, (well OK I regularly mention him from time to time in my diary) and this did make them reconsider things and they have implied that as long as they get to do a song and dance routine in the musical and, can have Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers autographs then they will do a quick write up, I say quick it appears it may take up to fifteen years and I have to supply my own gold leaf.




So in the meantime I have been left with leaving the blog to the nation as a record of life as it is here in the wild (OK not very wild) hills on the borders of England and Wales, a place full of dragons and monsters and Zombies and Strange old men in flat caps who drive in mysterious ways on the open highway in old 4X4’s once owned by Franciscan Monks back in the Bronze age.

I am very optimistic that they will be keen to lock my diary away in the darkest vault for ever so that it will be safe from the ravishes of being read (Hang on that sounds wrong).


It appears dad is also keen to create something that will last for posterity so he is working on Igor a Steam powered, electro-mechanical person that will be controlled by a suitable human brain and triple A batteries.  All he needs is the correct sized brain, which apparently is exactly the same size as my own one, that’s a bit of a coincidence. . . . . . AH DAMN.      

Oooooooooooooooo yes I saved a bunny from under one of the sofa’s this morning that Sotty the cat was considering having for breakfast.

    1. Books or art are a good way to remain immortal, although not necessarily a way to become or remain well known.

  2. It appears that my picture due to news events may not have be appropriate so I very sorry, I have tweaked it a bit. But I had not seen a news until a short time ago. Why is it that people do really terrible things in the name of religion when it is plainly clear that any act of violence can not be justified by any religion. The fools today who killed a man with knifes are not religious they are just violent fools.

    1. I think they claimed that they were making a political statement about the plight of their country, because of the death and destruction wars have caused. Apparently, killing an ex soldier, whilst surrounded by people, was the best way to do that.

      ...

      Whilst I don't agree with wars in general, killing someone as a supposed "protest" is a just as violent and horrendous thing.

    2. I did get very angry by the shear stupidity of it as a protest. One point many of the fundamentalists never address is why so many of their own countrymen and from their own religion kill each other. There are many places in the world where Muslims kill Muslims or Christians kill Christians. Religion is not at fault but people use it for their own aims.

  3. Okay, trying to shake off the image of you being pelted with Seagulls.
    Soon Rob Z, Soon that nice Mr Spielberg will come across this blog, I can feel it in my waters...though that could also be the gin. :)

    Agreed on the violent fools. What they did, was not in the name of religion but the act of two mentally unstable individuals. Sickening.

    1. Yes that nice Steven Spielberg is a right one for going off on tangents distracted by horses and the like and possibly gin.

  4. I think there is an ancient saying (probably in Lreek-Gatin) about a seagull being thrown by hand in equiver-ant to two being launched by catapult.

    1. I think your drawings are starting to take on a Van Goghishness (I mean that in a good way.)(( I was goghing to speLL good as 'gogh-d' but then decided against it.)

    2. The pics are now turning from Van Goghishness to Van Godishness in a sort of micro way.

  5. (Second comment because I wanted to actually comment on your post and it seemed to be too different a topic to put together really x.x)

    Handy that you rescued the rabbit, since it seems to be saving you from those seagulls being thrown!

    1. I love seagulls but the cat loves little cute rabbits so rescue was of the essence (so to speak, the English language is all a bit odd)

      Thanks for coming back to comment twice

  6. I will be back to respond to comments tomorrow; time and energy are running out today (tonight).

    Sorry about this but it is time to sleep and get my brain back working.
