A little of this and a bit more

Alan Crawford presents twisted short and some longer stories for adults, with quite a number of his rants and observations as well.

Several curious people, really it’s just one, asked me how or where the ideas came from. Thankfully there’s no clear answer. When the trousers, mind, or weather conditions suit such things, the computer opens, a page appears, and it starts to flow. All designed to promote my nonsense, which may be adult in nature but not necessarily mature.

Goodbye for now possums

Reading Time: < 1 minuteWow, I’ve been so distracted from tbaoo and my silly writing. You may have noticed or not, dear reader that I’ve been running about home handyman’ing. Digging unbelievable large, rock and clay ridden holes for my new trees and not writing any pithy writings for either. Aside from that it’s goodbye for now possums.

These freakn’n holes might as well have been created out of a concrete driveway or a service station forecourt. Shit man, what did they make my block of land out of ? Well, they’re in, those four trees and I’ve also created a two new garden beds and sorted out the rainless crunchy yard that is my home.

I’ve also come to realise that this handy, hard back breaking work and my waving my tools around the place is severely cutting into my writing time. Somehow I’ll find a balance between what used to be “no life” to “half and half a life”. Getting out of the house more often is also a step to come. But dear reader, my bride and I managed to get out of the house the other night.

We dolled ourselves up and taxied our way to Jupiter’s Casino on the Gold Coast. The reason, other than the almost unsuccessful attempt to enjoy a pint of Guinness or three, was to catch Eat Pray Laugh the not so farewell tour for Barry Humphries / Dame Edna / Sir Les Paterson / Sandy Stone ( and even a new character to me  father Gerard Patterson ) who all helped us to say goodbye. It was hilarious, very sad and incredibly exciting. Farewell Barry till the next farewell tour, you are the absolute master.

Now here’s the champion of taste, all stand for Sir Les http://youtu.be/lWd41uPyxRw

Barry Humphries is indeed a genius and we will never see the like of him again, everyone from Royalty to movie stars adore him and righly so.

I saw his concert last night and yes it was emotional in the end.

If ony he could be cloned and go on forever.

That level of wit is not to seen anymore I’m afraid.
