Timely Reminder.

be using this (the red one)


What happened?

I got distracted.

You forgot.

I was distracted.

Yesterday you posted a post without a photo.

It’s there now. I got distracted.

By?

The car.

What car?

Exactly.

Remind me.

Remind ME. “Never lend your car to someone you have given birth to.” Who said that? (editorial note t)

I don’t know. How much?

One thousand, one THOUSAND eight hundred.

That’s two thousand.

I know!


Got a picture to go with this?

South of the Border, (north) West of the Sun.

oh dear


Did you finish your book?

Yes! Again yes!

Ah, by your tone I hear that you enjoyed it somewhat.

Somewhat I did! The best of the four books by this author that I have read so far.

I assume therefore that you like this author somewhat if you have read three books.

You assume more or less correctly though the last one I read left me underwhelmed .

Who is this author with the power to underwhelm you and not?

Mr Murakami. (editorial note t)

And this most recent tale, to what does it pertain?

Love, and loss.

Ah.

Yes.

Sigh?


Would you have a quote for us?

I would.

Quote forth.

“Before long, all the sounds around me – the clamour of the people at the bar, the piano trio’s music – all faded into the distance, as if the tide had gone out. Only she and I remained.”

I wonder what that looks like in Japanese.


Probably beautiful.

Harbour Night.

or a boat?


Are you listening to the rain?

No.

Listen, it sounds like a river; a mountain stream.

It’s raining.

It’s babbling, softly; it could be the highlands. Listen.

Are you listening?

Yes.


Let me sleep.

Return of the Scud Clouds.

ain't no scud-shine when.....


Look, scud clouds! Do you remember scud clouds?

I do.

You do?

Yep, I just looked them up. (editorial note t).

It’s a colour too you know.

I'm not surprised.

Scuddy. As in ‘the sky is full of scuddy clouds’.

And it is!

Behind AND beyond.

Behind we will have to accept, it’s the beyond that troubles me.


Look out! Scud beyond.

All Falls at the Falls.

hope not


Hey, there’s someone on the phone for….er, what do I call you?

You?

Ok there’s someone on the phone for… hang on, what do you call me?

You?

Too confusing.

Him?

I like it. There’s someone on the phone for you.

Thanks him, who is it?

Him.

You?

No Bob from The Archives. (editorial note t)

Hi Bob, how are you? By the way, i'm recording you in blue so we don't get confused.

Fit and healthy thank you, but I’m worried about Miskiva, I haven’t heard from her for a month and I think she’s dead.

Oooh, calm down, there are  people I haven’t heard from for a couple of years but I don’t think they’re dead.

Maybe you should?

My life would be impossible; anyhow, I check secretly that they are. Now, why do you think Miskiva's dead?

She went into the bitty back of the waterfall a month ago and there hasn’t been a squeak.

Hang on, the waterfall – remind me.


Ok, so are we talking one Miskiva here or two, and … why are you worried? The archives can reduce the squeak in someone.

I thought she might be hungry, so I took her a piece of Torte.

Taught?

Torte. Cake.

Maybe she’s Hungarian; did you ever find out what language she was speaking?

Swahili.

Swahili!? Is she from, er, Swahililand? *

No.

How do you know?

I asked her, in Swahili.

I thought you were Scottish; how do you say ‘are you from Swahililand’ in Swahili?

Wewe ni kutoka swahililand ? Something like that.

What did she say ?

Hapana, lakini mimi nina kujifunza swahili.

What does that mean ?

No.

Why did you ask her in swahili in the first place?

I was trying it in every language, I proceeded alphabetically.

So, is she Hungarian?

I don’t know yet, i started at z.

Z!?

Zapotec - I got to S when she disappeared – look I’m really worried, the tunnel at the back of the waterfall has collapsed with all the rain, I’m going to have to dig in.

Do you need any help?

Keep a video link open; I’ve got a head cam on.

What are you going to do with the Torte?

Don’t fret, I’ll send you some.

Ok, go carefully, we’re with you. Bye.

Bye.

Bye.

Hey, him, do we have a video link?

Hey you, what do you think?

I think no.

That’s correct.
