FISHING TRIP HELL

IMG_5715

After last week’s blockbuster of a fishing trip, where between the two of us we caught 250-300 fish, my brother and I decided to take a trip to a new fishery, I shall not name it because it was not worth visiting as a fishery, it was however, a beautiful site.

Our first mistake was to sit in the shade. As I was in a t-shirt and hadn’t brought a coat with me this was not a good start. I was freezing, even  though it was a beautiful day.

Next, my chair broke! As I can’t stand up for very long this made carrying on impossible. I said to my bro, I needed to go back to Lichfield and buy a new one. He said, he’d go home and get his other chair, as it was closer to the venue.

100 yards down the road leaving the fishery, His car broke, fairly terminally! The suspension on the back chassis collapsed. He finessed his car home and then had to try and organise his mate, who is a mechanic, to book it in to be fixed. The estimate about a grand!

He had to get Jane to bring him back in her car.

We fished for six hours and caught 5 fish and used two loaves… a biblical fail!

We then decided to go down to the canal, where we both drew a blank.

So much for fishing being therapy!

THIS REALITY

IMG_5640[1]

RECENTLY, EVERY TIME I WAKE UP, I THINK OH GOD, I’M STILL STUCK IN THIS REALITY! NEVER HAVE I FELT SO BEREFT IN REAL LIFE, IF THAT CONDITION STILL EXISTS, BECAUSE THIS REALITY IS JUST AWFUL…

I HAVE MISSED MY GRANDDAUGHTER’S SECOND BIRTHDAY,

I HAVE FAILED TO BE THERE FOR MY CHILDREN WHEN THEIR GRANDFATHER HAD DIED, AND I REALISE THAT EVERYONE HAS MADE SIMILAR SACRIFICES!

BUT TODAY, THIS FUCKING GOVERNMENT HAS MADE ALL OF OUR PRIVATIONS POINTLESS…

ALL THOSE WHO WERE NOT THERE AS THEIR CHILDREN OR PARENTS DIED, ALL THOSE WHO WERE NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE A PROPER FUNERAL FOR THEIR LOVED ONES… ALL THOSE NURSES THAT HAVE DIED TRYING TO SAVE THOSE PATIENTS IN THE THRALL OF THIS DISGUSTING DISEASE… ALL OF THIS MEANS NOTHING BECAUSE ITS OK FOR THOSE IN POWER TO DO WHATEVER THEY LIKE, THEY WILL BE SUPPORTED.

I’M SO ANGRY IT’S A GOOD JOB WE HAVE STRIDENT GUN LAWS.

IF CUMMINGS SURVIVES THIS WEEK, ITS TIME TO MARCH SIX FEET APART ON PARLIAMENT AND TELL THEM THIS WILL NOT STAND.

I’M PROUD TO BE A MERCIAN, BUT THESE SAXONS ARE SO PERFIDIOUS WE NEED TO TAKE THEM OUT OF POWER. THIS IS NOT ENGLAND ANY MORE, IT IS A SAXON STATE.

TIME TO TAKE BILIOUS BORIS OUT OF THE EQUATION, THE TIME FOR REVOLUTION IS CLOSE. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE BLOODY, JUST A PLEBISCITE AGAINST THIS FASCIST ELITE.

DALE M WISHING I WAS OUT OF HERE.

EE CUMMINGS & RESPONSE

I LIKE IT’S HOWS. I LIKE TO FEEL THE SPINE

OF YOUR BODY AND ITS BONES. AND THE TREMBLING

-FIRM-SMOOTH NESS AND WHICH I WILL

I MISS THE SOFT SHAPE OF YOUR SPINE,

PROVIDING AN ARCH TO BRIDGE THE GAP,

BETWEEN THE ONE AND TWO OF US…

THE WHISPER OF YOUR LIPS ON

THE NAPE OF MY NECK AS YOU

PLAYFULLY PINCH MY PUCKERED NIPPLE,

I MISS THE MY-NESS OF MY HAND

IN YOUR HAND ON YOUR SHOULDER,

AND THE SMELL OF YOUR UNRULY

TOUSLE HAIR, TICKLING MY NOSE

AND LIPS.

 

I MISS THE ONENESS OF THIS ONE

WITH YOUR ONE AND THUS

WE BECOME A TRINITY.

I MISS THESE OF YOU AND I AND US.

I MISS THE US MOST OF ALL.

I’LL WAIT?

unnamed

I’LL WAIT OR

DEGRADATION OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE BY MEME MENTALITY.

I’ve just noticed this ‘ I’ll wait’ meme at the end of everyone’s very clever little vignettes evoking writers such as Orwell, Beckett et al, and I realised a very pertinent point, these people actually think that this makes them look cool and/or intelligent. I’m here to dissuade you of that misconception. It makes you look DUMB! IT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A MEMBER OF A HERD, NOT ONE OF THE COOL KIDS! There I’ve said it.

This is not the only phrase I find absolutely unconscionable, there are too many to list extensively, because I do not use such ready-made put-downs myself, but here a few that bring bile into the back of my throat:

  1. SO… – PEOPLE WHO START EVERY SENTENCE WITH SO, FOR EXAMPLE, ” SO, I COME FROM LONDON…YEAH, AND WORK IN GRAPHICAL MIS-USE OF THE LANGUAGE RIGHT?” OK I ADDED TWO EXTRA PEEVES IN WITH THE SO, I.E. YEAH, AND RIGHT… GOOD GRIEF!
  2. KAREN – Karen is a slang term that is used to typify a woman perceived to be entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is considered appropriate or necessary. JUST SO WEAK.
  3. OK BOOMER – “OK Boomer” is a catchphrase and meme that gained popularity among teenagers and young adults in November 2019, used to dismiss or mock attitudes stereotypically attributed to the baby boomer generation. TO LOCK A WHOLE GENERATION INTO A SINGLE STEREO-TYPE IS JUST SO LAZY.

There are a lot more of these easy flatulent phrases which demean the person saying them more than it belittles their targets, but I can’t be bothered to find them and point them out. my advice is : DON’T! DON’T DO THAT, IF YOU WANT TO LOOK CLEVER, THINK FOR YOURSELF, BE CLEVER WITH YOUR OWN WORDS AND PHRASES…

AND REMEMBER THIS – PUNK WAS ALREADY DEAD WHEN IT HIT THE MAINSTREAM!

YOU ARE DOING LINGUISTICALLY WHAT YOU DID WITH TAMAGOTCHIS, WITH FURBIES, WITH HULA HOOPS, WITH BEANIE BABIES…ETC YOU ARE JUST JOINING THE HERD. BE BETTER THAN THAT.

DALE M

P.S. I’M AWARE MY CAPITALISING OF WORDS WILL ANNOY YOU…

GOOD!
