Thank you my dears
I am not going to borrow money from my friends unless there truly is no other alternative. Friends shouldn't really get involved with each other financially, and if I had followed that sage advice then we wouldn't be in the position that we are now. Simon Wolstencroft died owing me thousands of pounds that I can never recover, and as I alluded in a previous bloggo, we have £50k stuck in a business venture run by erstwhile friends, that we seem unlikely to be able to recover. So I shall try to follow Shakespeare's advice about neither lending nor borrowing, and we shall soldier on.
However, whilst on the subject of being totally overwhelmed, Gavin Lloyd Wilson emailed me last night:
I'm not trying to bother you when you're not feeling well, but just wanted to share with you the fact that I've just posted the 500th entry on the CFZ news blog. That's not bad in just 2 months. At this rate we'll have over 3,000 entries by the end of the year!
I know you're not well so I'm not expecting a reply.
I hope you're feeling better soon.
Bloody Hell Gavin - 500 in two months. That's going it some! Well done mate. I am really not sure what to say. I never thought that this bloggo would become anywhere near as succesful as it has, and although I hate to overuse words, I cannot think of anything more apposite to say than that I am overwhelmed by it all, and eternally grateful to people like Gavin for all that they do.
Finally, you might be wondering why there is a 1999 picture of a short-haired me, with a clergyman and an elderly lady at the top of this posting. The clergyman is my brother, and the lady is my late mother. Today would have been my mother's 87th Birthday, and I miss her very much.
