The Funeral of Mr M and the Kala Kar
Sadly it was the funeral of our old friend Mr M and despite the fact he really only had the one son who could be there as a direct family member a lot of his friends managed to make it. It was an odd sort of funeral as his son has always been convinced that Mr M was a hardened Buddhist, but he was not really and would have been happy to have a bit of everything on the grounds that would cover all the options once he arrived where ever we arrive. We then went off to the after funeral reception where we ate a bit of food chatted about Mr M and the old days and some of his mad exploits and trying to work out where he hid the gold in the garden which he did years ago to avoid tax. Although doing this while being rather merry is a bad move as it then leads to years of digging holes looking for it again but failing.
After a rush home and feeding the cats we then rushed off again to team up with Mr Charlie and Miss Jane (who were also at the funeral) for an Indian meal in
, where we discussed many things
including old bird cages and the making of small cardboard birds. The last small cardboard birds were faulty
and I now have decided to start from scratch again and make a Mk2 small cardboard
bird design, although I now have to make twice as many as Mr Charlie and Miss
Jane wish to have one or two for their cage.
They told the chap at the Indian that I am a great artist and although I
agreed and said I was I also had to point out that I was a very modest great
artist so I seldom tell people, he (the chap from the Indian) then said that I
was a KALA KAR which is apparently an artist in Indian so WELL COOL. Montgomery
Last night the weather was very windy and we found ourselves battling along some tiny roads in the dark as we were out visiting friends for a meal last night also. I know it sounds like we are out all the time having a good time, but this is not true as we are not out that often or my diary would be really exciting which it is plainly not. And as a result of a bit of wheeler dealing I am now the proud owner of a big posh camera, the main drawback of which is I now have to learn how to actually take a picture with it.
I was also planning to tell you more about the conversation between the shop assistants on how to stab people and what is the right type of knife to use, but it is very late and it has been a long long day…..
