Not Good Enough
What it says, please buck up...
I used to live in Spain... currently suffering yet another heatwave. It wasn't always bright sun and flowers. One month every year all the rain and wind used to come at once... And it was cold
Written (quite) a few years ago, when the US re-established diplomatic relations with Cuba. Posted today, because I was looking for something else on an old hard-drive and found it... just next to an unfinished novel or three...

Another nugget of fool's gold from the digital mines... No known copyright issues for original photograph of Argentine Death Flight victims... fiddled with by author.

Someone once said some things very like these to me when I was younger, I should have listened, but ... well, as a teenager/young man I was ALWAYS right. Now I'm older, I know that there are many more than two sides to anything. What do you call a shape with two sides..? Exactly.

Amid the fuss about the death of another, admittedly incredible, footballer from the other side of the world, there's this. It used to be on another site. I wrote it nine years ago the week after his death. I've edited it somewhat. What a terrible waste. Still no explanation of why, although unsubstantiated reports link him to the abuse carried out by boys' coach, Barry Bennell. Anyway, we know the spotlight is hard to give up.

A bit of affectionate ribbing. Image from the café depicted's facebook page... they're happy with the free publicity.
This is an old one dug out of an old hard drive, don't think I ever posted it here. Anyway, Gibborim sort of means warriors, heroes, the mighty... The word was used to refer to King David (yes, that one)'s bodyguard. Anyway, enjoy this... or not. Image is PD from Wikipedia.
