Let’s try again shall we? I did get this blog written the other evening but in my ineptitude I decided that the wrong button to press was right! In other words, I’m a dick and deleted a whole blog (too many words to count but more than usual due to the time I haven’t written ) anyhoo! I’ll keep my finger away from said button and try and concentrate on what’s going on in the world of Adam right now!
(Lots of moody cloud pics today). As you may or may not have heard, we’ve left the European Union! Now I know that we actually practiced our democratic system to its all powerful conclusion, the people spoke, the country must act accordingly. So why do I find al those opposed to the electoral MAJORITY want it run again and to make the vote got the way THEY want it. Well that’s not democracy I’m sure. I’ve fought in lands (many dusty and hot) where that sort of law and politics rules and let me tell you, it ain’t pretty! Not to worry, I’m sure the politicians will do what the country (albeit half of it) has demanded. Let’s see shall we?
However, I’m not normally political (I’m not, honest) but let’s get on with the task in hand! My day! (Or days) new sliders on Big Red, plus the finding of an oil leak from the rocket covers which will be done by Ian Bells place (it’s his funeral tomorrow btw) I’m hoping the shop sticks to its word from the last phone call and does it under warranty as they must have had the tank off to respray it and you can’t really miss the leak.
And the guitar making is coming along a treat, back tomorow (funeral or wood shop?) I’m confused 😳 we worked out we have only 36 hours of wood shop time to build these things, and all with NO guitar making skills at all (this should be fun when twanging away at the end). To add insult to injury (there’s a link in there somewhere,you just gotta look REAL hard) I’ve been entered into the ‘Summer Games’ at Pheonix house next week. Well not entered as such, I was asked if I would like to take part (this was after I bottled the Waterloo trip and I felt a bit shit really) but not as shit (or knackered) as I’m going to feel by next Friday. A daily update WILL be sent (if I’m not in a hospital bed)
So, that was a quick catch up on life in the uppy/ down lane. Oh I see we are out of the European football thing, there’s a shock, and it appears that the team manager has resigned! Are our leaders filled with puff juice? An upset by the people (or players) and they resign! Now look at this microcosm of Britain, and think back when you were young and your mam and dad were working (granted that’s a hard one for some of you in Ashington) but did their bosses resign when it looked like things weren’t going their way??? No, they went on strike, but that’s not the point, they listened to the people and acted accordingly, obviously to the deferment of most of our industry, but again, that’s not the point! The point is, they acted and got sacked! They didn’t roll over and resign. GET SOME BACK BONE BRITAIN!
