Feeling 'Bright and Breezy'

"Hi Folks" A call to the loo brought me from my overnight slumbers after being awakened by the 'Waste disposal vehicle'(garbage cart).
After drinking my traditional glass of filtered and boiled tap water with a blood thinning aspirin I went downstairs, well the first thing I noticed were the tyre tracks over our grassed frontage and the dead spikey branch of bush lemon tree missing, (a deterrent).
**We have new neighbours now since the old bloke next door passed on, they have been here four weeks, Two families and a barking dog, so different from the previous owners who sadly; were quietly dying over the past two years but kept it maintained in good order.
We are now back to picking up pooch poo and annoying items of rubbish of which the two family residents allow to be strewn around theirs and our frontage.
The big problem is there are never fewer than five vehicles parked overnight both in their driveway and both on the road or illegally on the nature strip, and to add to that one of these vehicles could be twelve metres in length. This particular vehicle has been seen carrying road signs and orange coloured witches hats and several times parked back to front on the road which in turn creates a hazard for neighbours when accessing the road. I suppose it would be reasonable to assume that these people have more than a simple affinity to the rules of the road, up to now we have not crossed swords or even spoken to them, I don't intend to however, I have a feeling it could happen.(The Crossed swords part)
Before writing the whinge part of this post** I made nearest and dearest the traditional morning Cuppa, went down stairs again to pick up my delivered paper before it could get stolen again, I then peeled the spuds cleaned the veggies and defrosted the Rump Steak for this evenings DinDin; then shortly after gobbled down my anti cholesterol and high blood pressure tablets and then watered the garden, and they tell me I am retired.
Although the day started with a cool crisp morning it has now turned into a slightly overcast but pleasant day. Nearest and dearest had earlier made plans to do the Big shopping thingy today, I hope I have time for a nod before hitting the road as I feel totally knackered. See you soon. Vest.

A lot of times it seems like, you ain't gon' make it where you wanna be in life
But, yo if you got a plan, believe me you gon' get there
You gon' get everything you ever wanted baby
That's my word

Everything will eventually come to an end
So try to savor the moment, cuz time flies don't it
The beauty of life, you gotta make it last for the better
Cuz nothin' lasts forever

Everything will eventually come to an end
So try to savor the moment, cuz time flies don't it
The beauty of life, you gotta make it last for the better
Cuz nothin' lasts forever

Nice cars, livin' like a star club hoppin'
Poppin' bottles at the bar love shoppin'
Gucci iceberg, coppin' two, three nice furs
One for your wife, one for your freak silver spurs
Rolls Royce too good to be true, houses worth 2.2
Pool parties beautiful view
You made it in life, Forbes Magazine style baggy jeans style
Pass the green while hoes wit' meanwhile
Asses, pretty mommies illest bodies pass glasses
Louis Roderra with Peach Schnapps you just relaxin'
Thinkin' damn wish my niggas could afford this
On the sand at your Malibu house holdin' a cordless
Talkin' to lawyers accountants investments
Money doubles, triples protected hard work you manifested
Worries of failure, when you buried will your familia
Keep your name prosperin' to the maximum
You should live, there's only one life that's the physical
Rich or poor in jail why the fuck should you be miserable
Things happen for reasons, the clock keeps tickin'
Love could have your heart beat skippin', thugs turn to religion
The bitch you love could start to hate you, the shit you use to do escape you
Things that make you laugh represent the past
Reminisce the block gamble gees on the floor
Niggas use to be the man, you don't see 'em no more
Your favorite restaurants and favorite stores, they tore 'em down
Turn 'em into shopping malls the hood is like a ghost town
Haunted by souls who thought that time stood still
Just live your life to the fullest, never look back, it's real

Everything must eventually come to an end

Cuz nothin' lasts forever, ya know

why I love my blogger friends and Rose


I can tell all
they tell me all too


their secret desires and fantasies
I tell too

and we have bonded
till death do us part

marriages fail
but ours is not a contract


it is MORE
