Live Again

I was a young lad of 16 – but a man, as for a year I had lived on my own in a small bed-sit above a charity shop. I had very little; bedding, tape-recorder, a few clothes and a stack of bodybuilding mags, that was all. The room had an old chair, a single […]

The Best Is Yet To Come

The Best Is Yet To Come If I could go back in time would it change a dam thing in my life? Love the dumb things we do when were young but the best is yet to come Hinder “Ding a ling-ling-ling….” I reach for my old style alarm clock on the bedside chest of […]

Be Like Conan
