I suppose when you turn 100 you expect a few cards.
2 shops on Fredrick St.North
The weekend beckons and it should be a good one.The first months wages which haven't been spent before the workers get their hands on it.
In the coffee shop this morning I found a €2 coin. "oh that's the homeless boy, people give him money and he leaves it in the shop, stuck into odd corners. He is afraid that the older boys would beat him up to get the money from him."
I think we need to do a lot for the vulnerable people in our midst.
We could manage well on 1/3 of the politicians, working for 10% of their present pay.
Pensions only payable when they are not working and one pension only.
They have lost their way.
Scooting around Barrow St I decided to go around to Gordon St to meet Gordon Kellett the Saab dealer, he is from my home town.
On the way round I met a girl called Pamela who had the most beautiful speaking voice I ever heard, it turns out that her mother is Swedish and she was brought up in London.( So the accent is a mix) Strange to say she has the accent but can't speak Swedish.She could make a fortune doing voice overs for radio.I know there is a place off Baggott St. I brought the voice of the financial regulator there once.
Just off the phone from my cousin asking me all about my long lost relation Henry James who did good in the USA.
You always forget to check these things up when the people who have the information are alive. A fair bit of my family tree is on the net, its a pity it is mostly dates, I would rather read the stories, some have written a book about the ramblings of the clan..When I break a leg I will study it all.
You should never go up your family tree, you might meet a monkey coming down.
Well the night was not good, I just couldn't catch the fish. Too many trawlers out.
One girl I brought from the Westbury to Kinsealy e30 on the meter."Its usually only e25"She told me I should have gone on the M1".It turned out it was closed for road works anyhow,the port tunnel closed too, people were stuck in it for 3 hours or more. No reason given.
Everyone is having cutbacks. I hear that the bookshop Hughes and Hughes has gone into admin.Rents are high in Dawson St. and would you be arsed to go into town to find a book when you could just click your mouse and have it.
Or if you were a real smart arse download it on to your kindle.
I also hear that a big taxi operator who has been at the front pushing for taxi drivers to give 20% discounts is in big trouble himself.....Property speculation has come back to bite him on the backside.
Its all like deja vous ....again
Ah well I will go to bed and try again tomorrow night.
Good night, sleep tight,don't let the bed bugs bight.
