      Happy birthday, my marsupial friend. I’m guessing it’s happy, as I don’t know your age. Personally, I don’t celebrate birthdays anymore. I figure that after reaching 35 a few years ago, I’m closer to dying than being born.

    I don’t often get ‘chills’ from music, but this one did it. IMHO, the best cover of this song I have ever heard, done by two teenagers sitting in a stairwell! Chuck your headphones on, & enjoy…

      Not bad patu, there’s hope for you yet. Not sure the amp and all that reverb added anything though. Would have preferred to hear them unplugged

    • I am just listening to Leonard Cohen….singing Hallelujah at this moment.

        Lend your ear to the one above afterwards Kitty, it is something special 🙂

  3. Is there ANYTHING more aggravating than looking at a lawn mowed 5 days ago and which then looked neat and decent but which-thanks to the rain-is nearly as long as it was before ? Why do we bother ? I bet that James Shaw lets his grass grow as it will.

      I generally don’t bother Kitty. Funnily enough, the last time I mowed the lawn, my youngest was far from impressed. “Why did you cut down our jungle dad?!”, he said with a frown. I told him it was because Mum told me to 😀

        I was maddened when I noticed how long some of the grass had grown in the couple of days of rain; who’d expect it to grow so fast ? It’s like a speeded-up film. It’s really bad by the path, so one can’t help seeing it.

          Get yourself a stream. Then you’ll never look at your lawn. Best thing.

            Some rough fellows appear to be detonating explosives in the vicinity.

              Idiots such as myself & my teenaged sons I suspect, Sir Gerald 😛

              They’ve got the wrong day!
              Arsonists, I expect! 😡
              Far too much arsin’ about, these days.

              Well, to be fair, we were just having a ‘dress rehearsal’ this evening. I’m planning on ducking down to work tomorrow, to fill one or two ‘pressure vessels’ with acetylene & oxygen… 😀

              Probably how Kim Jong Un got started!
              Look what’s that’s led to! 💂🏻 😡

              At least we keep our ‘malarchy’ reserved for daytime. It sounds like WW3 has broken out around here ATM! Nothing to do with us, although we may be partially responsible for getting them started… 😀

            Oh, all right, I never thought off that.

            Some people I knew had a stream and the long-haired cat would step in, hold a strong stem with his teeth and lie there for hours.

            • Of that.

              t wasn’t bad here last night, although I shunted the dog out at 8pm for a pee and took him to bed just in case. He was more or less all right; had a quick bark and was a bit fidgety. A friend’s dog was very badly injured when she was terrified by fireworks, even though she was inside.
