I just took care of it

George, king of the cobbles

At twenty past six this morning my cat George, the king of the cobbles, after an illness lasting 3 weeks, made his way to that great cattery in the sky .

His ailment started as a common cold, but somewhere along the line he had a stroke, and his body began to close down.

What a magnificent creature he was, who mixed the ferocity of his territorial pride with a love as tender as Romeo had for Juliet.

I was his Juliet, which is a very modern take on what was a story created by Shakespeare founded on heterosexuality. .
To add to the confusion, my wife Lynne sat up with him all last night. God bless you George.
If only more loved as passionately as you the world would be a much better place.

I remember that I asked a man I loved, Walter, my first wife’s father, if he was proud of the farm he had built up from a smallholding. “No”, he replied. “This isn’t mine. I’m just taking care of it while I’m here on earth”

Well George was doing the same with the cobbles.
And George, you will never walk alone.
At the end of the road there’s a golden sky.
My beautiful boy, these past few days have been troublesome, like a storm.
But don’t be afraid of the dark

At the end of the storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

I will be with you forever.
Forever, my sweetheart.

So walk through the storm and hold your head up high
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
