Ain't been There, and a hedgehog.

own F and B/couple of years back

Hey! Bob phoned whilst you were out.

The Bob! Really? How is he?

Hot apparently, they are experiencing unusually high temperatures.

Yeah, probably raining.

He had news; you might be interested.

I am.

They found an old computer, at the bottom of a box, behind a cupboard, under a shelf, behind a locked door in the archives where nobody had ever been because it was somewhere else.


And the screen didn’t work.


But they managed to link it up tan old screen where the computer didn’t work and bingo!


Him and Ms P.

Ms P! Cool.

Apparently it’s full of archived stuff that he thinks we didn’t know was archived.

I don’t know the half of it, or anything else.

He’s had a quick look, but says he needs a day and an age to cross check everything.

What do we have except days and ages?

True, anyway, he sent you this.

What is it?

Something about a hedgehog; he can’t find any sign of it anywhere else.

We must tell him thanks.

I did.

Food for thought.

different field/two weeks ago

How’s the Mue?

Great, thanks for asking. We’ve had a new donation.
the Mue/on the table outside under a stone

Really? I’m excited.

Here it is.                                      

Where will it be exhibited?

I thought it would look nice on the table outside the front door.

There’s a table outside the front door?

There is now.

You will need a stone on top of it to prevent it blowing away in the wind.

I have just such a stone, an unexpectedly donated stone no less.

May I see it?

It’s on the piece of paper, on the table, on the step outside the front door – you pass it directly on your way to the foyer.  

Unless you take the boat.

Unless you take the boat.

Summer Slumming.

a field/a festival/last saturday

What happened to the summer?

It’s slumming.

And you?

Taking it easy.

What’s the difference?

Slumming, I was doing that yesterday; today I’m taking it easy but actively.

Actively taking it easy or easily taking it active?

The latter. First stop, after this cup of hot lime-juice will be a run. The temperature is perfect.

The lime-juice is the perfect temperature?

Well it is as it so happens, but i was referring to the air temperature.

Have you noticed, by the way, that the grammar check isn’t at all happy with ‘lime-juice’? We’ve tried ‘lime juice’, ‘lime-juice’ and ‘limejuice’. It’s highlighted each as an error.

I could make a cup of tea.

You are not being serious.

If the summer can’t be, why should i?

A Lack of Daisies.

Winehouse Festival/Saturday.

Monday, fist day of the week, first day of the rest of your life….

You ok?

Feeling a bit turquoise.


Well, can’t honestly say blue, but I’ve certainly got a touch of the magentas this morning.

Could be the rain.

Could be, I don’t want to get up. I mean…

I know; I’m resisting.  What was it I read today, that quote from Pink Floyd? 

Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way.”

That was it! I want some chocolate but I’ve only got 85 euro in the bank and I emptied the piggy bank yesterday just to buy some fruit.

Just! Fruit will get you through times of no chocolate better than chocolate will get you through times of no fruit.

Fat Freddy, again! You really like him.

Seminal influence. 

Is that the right word?


Seminal? It suddenly sounded rude.

Sounded? Are you saying this out loud?

Of course, how else would it read like a conversation?

No one DOES read it, I keep telling you.

Rivers does, she told me.

Talking of Rivers, she was in the market yesterday.

I know! Talking about sandals!

Did you have the same thought I did?

I did!

Rivers with daisies – if only she had bought those sandals, the world would be a different place.

That’s the problem.

The problem this morning?

Yes. The world should be a different place.

Hang on a minute – that should be you saying that not me, and I’m not sure it is; the Rivers interlude may have re-routed us. Oh, it WAS you, i got confused.

Let’s say the Rivers tributary may have confluenced us, it sounds more aquatic.

I think there should be an apostrophe on Rivers somewhere.

I do to, but then we would have to know our grammatical rule. And you know what?

Judging by the fact that it’s 12.46 and you are still in bed, I think I can.

I can’t.

Be assed?

The world needs more daisies.

Shakin and a Rankin.

a field near here/yesterday

Were you the oldest person there?

No! The blind woman, dancing, was a year older.

Did you dance?

I got up and shaked about.


That too.

Got up? What were you doing before?

I was reading my book.

You were reading your book at a house music festival?

I had a game of babi-foot; that was pretty active.

Did you win?

Even-stevens; one game each.

What were you reading?

Knots and Crosses.
