Earth Wobbles - Scientists say
Well, It was too good to last...sobriety I mean. Some of you might have been able to predict, after yesterday's smug pontification, that it wouldn't......and it hasn't.
Something came over me...or was that someone?...no thank gawd. I've not disgraced myself, just partaken in a little post Christmas cheer with some very cheerful people.
I am on the road as it were, Jack Kerouac meets John Betjamen with a bit of Terry Thomas thrown in for good luck.
Driving to Devon to spend New Year with Idler Tom and his expanding family, Lord Louis, a spy and several cats, chickens and mice. I hope my lack of good breeding doesn't betray me...must remember - Serviette is a no no. Napkin.. Napkin.
A stroll down the hill to the sea, through the drizzle and mist, a pint at the Woody Bay hotel and a long thoughtful stare out at the cruel sea. At the bottom of the hill of course, is Lynton and Lynmouth, which had a bit of a Tsunami in reverse. Apparently the government was experimenting with cloud seeding, to increase rainfall...like we need more. A very successful experiment. It poured for days, the rivers of Exmoor burst their banks and Lynmouth was washed away, along with about fifty people.
Any road oop, I've got to get going now. If I'm wiped out on the motorway, you're all invited to the funeral. Have a lovely rest of 2004. You'll be hearing from me very soon, either from God's own Devon, or the Spirit world.
