Sad news

I heard yesterday that Captain Beefheart died on the 17th December. I have very fond memories of listening to his LP Safe as Milk way back when, and I'm pleased to say I still have my copy albeit a bit on the scratched side. Still it'll be one to transfer from vinyl to my computer. Tracks like 'Sure 'Nuff 'n Yes I Do' and 'Abba Zaba' conjure up some of the crazier things I did in the late 60's. I'd better keep those to myself!

And the snow is back. Drew back the blinds on the velux windows this morning to be greeted by the white stuff completely covering them and so now we're back in the snow bolt hole. Approx an inch and a half so far, so nothing like a couple of weeks ago. But snow is snow and I'm fed up with it. Apparently it's worse in Edinburgh and I'm supposed to head there tomorrow for the work xmas party ... or maybe not. And even worse No. 2 son is supposed to be coming up from Bristol today for his xmas break. He's booked on EasyJet so who knows. Nothing anyone can do about it, but keep fingers crossed and hope for the best.

  1. I hope no 2 son made it home. By some Christmas miracle I made it to Oz!
