Hell is in hello! Sods law took charge this evening within my humble abode – just after Nipper decided to seek and retrieve his rubber Kong from behind the TV and sound system. His gain was my loss, because every lead that could have been unplugged – was done so! Two DVD players, the SKY box, the whole sound system, as well as the telecom lead, TV aerial, and a few others cables that must be for show? Being a switched on cookie I had the forethought to photograph the same set up after moving it around last year. Setting it all up previously almost drove me to the brink of insanity, as well as reaching for a bottle of Port before climbing aboard the bus to get there!
Job complete (after much muttering and cursing in a cramped space) I reached for a DVD to test the digital behemoth, which just happened to be an unopened copy of ‘Paint Your Wagon’ that I must have received as a Christmas gift? Without realising the time, two hours flew-bye, which left me with happy memories and a grin from ear to ear – besides an ear worm of ‘I was born under a wandering star!’ Now it’s your turn if you choose to hit play (Lee Marvin starts caterwauling 1min 15sec in.) When I get to heaven, tie me to a tree, For I’ll begin to roam and soon you’ll know where I will be… We both have the same tin ear, it must be an Ex Marine thing! Yours_Aye.
