Frankly, I am bored.
The boss has been on for 10 days now and the furthest single trip we have done is less than 10 miles in a day. Sitting in a bay just off the local resort where her daughter and ever so wimpy son in law are staying is not much fun – and they hijack the boat at every opportunity for their socialite gatherings.
I am looking forward to getting back on the dock which could happen tomorrow afternoon – at least then I can get off twice a day for some exercise. I think I might hide away in my ER tomorrow and get the bike cleaned up a bit, ready for my next sortie into Rasta ganja land.
I was impressed to see young Florence taking to the stage recently with the Stones. Sometimes in life, some people make some great choices, and for Flo to sing on ‘Gimme Shelter’ was one of those gems. Not sure what I mean? Think back to ‘Little Britain’, after having watched it, can you think of anyone better than Tom Baker to have narrated it – or Seann William Scott along side Johnny Knoxville in the Dukes of Hazard or that wonderous collaboration with Bryan Adams and Mel Chisholm (the better looking one from the Spice Girls) singing ‘when you’re gone’ – I rest my case.
Goats have been amusing me still. On my morning walk last week I must have just missed a goat giving birth to two kidds. I was so close to the action that the little critters were still trying to get to their feet and the soil was wet with birth matter after just having popped out – five minutes earlier and I would have seen it all.
But there’s more
A little further on, close to the spot where I helped free the goat the week before, I heard the cry of a young goat. I listened for a few seconds but couldn’t hear the mothers return cry – so had to investigate. Another recent born that had lost his mother was standing atop a rock crying his heart out. I went closer to check him out and then to my surprise he came walking towards me. I stopped and let him come close until he was close enough that I could kick his little fucking head in – nah, that was a joke – he came up and sniffed me and then retreated back to his rock. As I walked away, he started to follow me. This is how I knew it was a new born, not yet got the fear of humans and willing to follow me thinking I was his mother. I mean, come on – do I really look like a goat ?
Thankfully he realised his mistake and went back to his rock.
So that’s about all of my adventures for now although more will follow soon as the bird lands on the 10th for a week of Antigua sunshine and some good old fashioned English lovin’.
I haven’t started this years photo album yet, but it will come – keep checking in.
