That watchful eye

She was in the bathroom applying her make-up,
under the watchful eye of her grand-daughter as she had done so many times before!
As she started to leave the bathroom,
the wee princess said " Grandma you for-got to kiss the toilet paper good bye.

Don't you just love them?

Today's Memory.

Today's Memory: H.W 1922,

They say, I have never written of love,
As a writer of stories should do!

They say, I have never touched a women, with a touch that is tender, firm and true.

They say, I know nothing of a women's love and me, in fields of clover,
Where loves Roses grow and life begins anew. all because of you,
My love burst from me and flew to you.
On that special day.

They say, I must write with faltering pen? with a tear in my eye.
That may be so true?
But How would they know? really,
Do they think I do not know?

When loves first bloom burst upon me,
In days when my hair was brown,
The hem of your skirt was a sacred thing and your hair was an Angels Crown.

They say, I have never written of love,
They say, my heart is such, that the finer feeling's are not for me?
As I have no feelings or knowledge of love.
They say! they say! Oh God I wish they just would go away.

They are the darkest depths in the nights sky, where the cluster of stars hang low,
I was lost in our love, beneath those stars,
When our first loves promises came true.
Your body was a wonderland to me,
Setting all my senses free.
Happiness completely surrounded me.

There are things that would break my heart to write.
Oh yes it's true! but just let me say,
"Thank you Princess for being there for me on that Special, Special, day.

And they think! I do not know?

Sorry I didn't realize, a moment would last forever.

Amun-Ra the king of kings


King of Kings.

Part of his Story.

Place:   Giza.  Egypt.

Duty:    Crop Spraying.

Snow Commander 600 hp
Mid 1970

Well I have just finished my spraying for a  while and unless I get called back?
I'm off to revisit the Pyramids and a deserted tomb, I found at Abydos a few years ago.

I will be interested to see! if it is still the same as I last saw it? or has it been robbed and plundered, by the people who should know better!

On arrival at Abydos I parked up and took my pack up and just started to walk around to familiarise myself with my surroundings,
I was pleased to notice my crypt entrance, still seem to be untouched,
I have always had this little fantasy, that this untidy and ignored entrance, led down to the greatest tomb ever and it was defying being found, by the tomb robbing bastards!
Who called themselves  Egyptologist!

Don't ask me to remember?

I get a funny feeling when I look into your eyes.




Not so long ago?

I'm in my car on my way to visit my  Auntie, something I do when ever I can.

I drive along the Geelong road and two miles south of Geelong I turn right up a familiar road, to the clinic. 
I see her sitting outside in the shade of the blue gum trees, there's a gentle breeze blowing, it's blowing through her hair, giving me a gentle glimpse  of my Auntie, as she used to be?
when she was there?

She is touching the top of the table, her fingers gliding smoothly across the plastic table top, looking intently down at what! something only she can see.? it's not for you or me.

I sit and take her hand and she looks up at me,
I say "Hallo Princess how are you today"?
She looks straight up at me and I can see,
She just doesn't remember me?  

I tell her of our life together and all the things we did, and all about the holidays we had, as I do on every visit.
"Aunt Nancy we had good times and I still love you true."

She said:
"I don't think this can be true?
Although I get a funny feeling when I look into your eyes, there seems to be something in your smile that gives me butterflies, you must look like someone I once knew?
But I'm terrible terrible sorry! cause" " I don't remember knowing you".

I stand up from the table and turn to say good bye, she just looks up at me and I can see, already.
She has forgotten me !

The nurse comes to me to say "I'm sorry there's no change" today.
I turn and walk away, there's nothing more to say," I will be back when I can, thank you for looking out for my Auntie, she means the world to me",

I wander back to my car across a lovely green lawn and I think to myself, maybe this isn't such a bad place for my Aunt Nancy  to be! when you consider.
"She doesn't remember me?"

Don't ask me to remember?
Don't try to make me understand?
Let me rest and know you're with me,
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.

I'm confused beyond your knowing,
I'm sad and sick and lost.
All I know is that I need you,
to be near me at any cost.

Do not lose your patience with me,
do not scold at me and curse and cry.
I can't help the way I'm acting
even though I try.

Just remember that I need you, need you!
the best of me is gone.
Please don't fail to stand beside me?

Love me? till my life has gone.

Dear Aunt Nancy your memory will always live in us Mick / Terence.
