Warning - When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple
By Jenny Joseph
When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple
with a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
and satin candles, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired
and gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
and run my stick along the public railings
and make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
and pick the flowers in other people's gardens
and learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
and eat three pounds of sausages at a go
or only bread and pickles for a week
and hoard pens and pencils and beer nuts and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
and pay our rent and not swear in the street
and set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
Did you know?

Green and slimy little white dog.
Today Dan and Roo are eventing. It's the last event of the season. They're staying in the bigger class now - so that's huge progress. She has just sent me a picture of Roo all plaited up and ready to go - fingers crossed for them both. Brave and fearless duo!!!! I am so proud of her - because truth be known - she's not naturally brave and fearless at all. She takes after me in that she's quite cautious and not naturally sporty and gung ho. So I know that each and every time she rides at an event - she has to face massive fears and conquer them. She does that quietly and with great grace. She gathers her inner strength and determination, and then her desire to achieve becomes bigger than her fears. So - she is actually much braver than those who are naturally fearless. I have no clue where she gets her inner strength and determination and the quiet still way in which she deals with and faces her demons. Both her dad and I have very little of that quiet grace! (No - we're much more likely to be running around making a big song and dance about everything :)

Movie review - Nights In Rodanthe
Tuesday, 14 October 2008
I think we're finally getting a few things right
I love any movie with Richard Gere starring. From the exceptional "American Gigolo" in the eighties (cannot hear Blondie's 'Call me' without seeing him strutting round his bedroom trying on clothes - sigh......) to 'An Officer and a Gentleman', 'Pretty Woman" (Oh I wish he would do that Piano thing with me....) all the chick flicks that he's been in (more sighing......) and I even love him when he plays a baddie (Internal Affairs is a fab movie). Tonight I'm off to the flicks in Kingston to see him in 'Nights In Rodanthe'. No doubt there will be more sighing. Even though he's now nearly 60 - he's still worth one - or two.

In tribute to Frank McGarahan
you were not coming home
the words are spinnin' in time
and the air suddenly went cold
the sun is still shining
but everything feels like rain, oh
and if I had one wish
it would be to see you again
when we lose
without a moment to say goodbye
how come the world won't stop spinning
now that you're gone -now that you're gone
I know every end has beginnings
but this one's all wrong -this one's all wrong
so wrong, so wrong
caught in the middle
wrong place, wrong time
and I'm hopelessly missing you
and I can't stop deny
nothing's fair anymore
and I know there's a better place
and I'll never stop dreaming of you
See What I mean?
I have lots of friends, both men and women and they will tell you that I am a likeable and not a bad looking person.
I am sociable, polite and have a great respect for women.My kind of music are old favourites: In the Mood, Begin the Beguine, Moonlight Serenade, Smoke gets in your Eyes, Stardust ....by Glenn Miller.
Other favourites of mine are Band Leaders such as: Percy Faith, Low Praeger, Mantovani just to name a few.
My other interest: Reading Newspapers, Financial Review and Magazines.
I only watch on TV: News, Current Affairs and Real Good Movies.
I am also interest in: Politics, Religion, Finance, History and Geography.
I am coming back to this site after being a member for the past 3 years and during that time I received more than 1,000 mails from many countries. I prefer to receive email messages where I am able to contact the sender or able to chat rather than receiving mail in my letter box but unable to reply.
