Well, waht a couple of weeks I've had. I saw the Bonzo Dog Band at the Demontfort hall in Leicester. I shan't do a write, will say go and read I'm a teapot's journal. Fab place and about the best concert I've ever seen, like the YES reunion concert except everyone was freinds and nice to each other. Seeing Phil Jupitus rambling 'cos he's forgot the words to Bigshot was worth twicwe the price. The therumin leg live! My God. Never thought I'd see the day, especially as (overheard conversation) The leg has bost after the night before and parts had to be fetched from London (presumably from the freezer).Heroes! Didn't say about my diagnosis did I? At the hospital to see a specialist who sent me off for xraysand then had me up again to show the curvature in my spine, it goes off to the left. Least I've got a name for it now. For the moment Still have to go throught the bull of signing on for a few weeks Tedium! It was my brother Bren's birthday on Friday. Went out with him down the Rainbow on Thursday, great night, lot's of music an chatting to loads of people including Simon the poet who, it turned out saw the Bonzo's at Wolverhampton! Pink drainpipes all round. Yesterday morning, I got a call from Bren. He'd fallen over, gashed his head and dislocated his shoulder. It doesn't stop there, oh no. Rog had all his money nicked from his accound by Taiwanese card cloners. Bastards. Niow I know what you're thinking, bad luck comes in 3s. Too right. At the weekend, we have a double murder mystery. Gary the actor is going into hospital on Friday and we've got to come up with a replacement sharpish. Worried? errrrmmm......
Glad to hear you had such a fab time at the concert Edna and yes I have read Teapots journal - excellent retelling.
Curvature of the spine hey - Can they perform surgery on that for you. I know as a teenager they can insert a metal rod down into the back which supports and gradually adjusts the spine into a more appropriate shape but I dont know it that is age restricted ie. they have a higher success rate witht the very young because they are still growing . It is worth looking into . The kids that I have seen who have had the surgery are certainly the better for it.
I'll start the chants to ward off any more bad luck ... auummmm, auummmm, auummmmm
