What I did on my holidays

Hi all,

Following a less than satisfactory (90%) stay in the Norwich/Norfolk area; I decide to list all the good things about the stay rather than dwell on the negative, so here's the list (my favouright things):-

My new Dean guitar arrvied (for you guitar heads, explorer style Z79 in black with hot pickups).
Managed to get a re-issue of  a Count Basie CD (4 CD's including Joe Williams sings standards)
Listened to 2am: Paradise Cafe by Barry Manilow, some great Baritone sax work by Gerry Mulligan, vocals by Sarah Vaughan, Mel Torme etc.
Elkins Music, Norwich; very good store for singers sheeet music (low/medium voice)
Turkish delight ice cream at Gorleston beach.
GreatYarmouth: Allens music, Barry Manilow songbook (notes on songs) plus Olympia restaurant Southern Chicken with banana and pineapple fritters.
White leather top trainers.
Amber tooth charm.
Picnic in the grounds of Sandringham.
Reading King Tubby's biography.
Paddling in the the Sea.
Lobster tails in seafood sauce at Hunstanton.

Overall the above more than offsets the poor breakfast buffet, and too soft beds in the Hotel we stayed at!

Sifting (extract).

Sifting, just sifting

The good from out the bad.

Sifting, just sifting

Focussing on what aint sad.

Sifting, just sifting

I’ve decided to look to the light

Sifting, just sifting

Peel away the clouds uncover the bright.

The man at the seafood stall gives me plenty seafood sauce

Coating all the lobster tails,

Thanks me for calling, gave me two free forks...

My finest Blues lyrics? Probably not but an exercise in positive psychology ( positive cognitions, setting the filters to the brighter)

My friend Kathy wondered whether I should email those on the poems list re my ceasing -see my earlier post on  the dangers of internet postings- so I've decided to email the link to this Blog out.
