ABBY2 OUTDOORGIRL AND FISHY65?
You all told a story without saying a word,
It's really nice to hear life has so much to offer if you just stop following other's like sheep,
I do read the uk news everyday and i see people doing some really bad things and i think to myself do these people never think how the likes of Eric clapton, Hank marvin,
And many more people got to learn what they do!!
It was'nt by committing crime for a hobby, trying to escape this world by taking drugs, and not by hanging around street corners,
I wonder how many people have ever climbed the safe paths up the likes of snowdon !
Gardening not only takes you time but its one of the hobbies that pays you something back in food,
And you can meet some really nice people from all walks of life.
The starting point is interesting as is the past of other gardeners,
I myself when i see the over sized kids of today who seem to think the world owes them everything they want and now,
Im glad i had the start in life i had,
I'd be the first to remember the street, the area and say yes it was a slum,
but i did have an outside play area "the street" and i did have close friends to play with, and the family,
I even had an aunty who had a hobby!!!
"knitting" she knitted me my first swim/trunks complete with a snake buckle elastic belt,
the costume or cossy as we called them was a deep blue colour and fitted perfect
"just under the belly button and nice and tight around the bum,
Oh yes aunt Loo Loo could really knit inspite of having really bad eye site,
The day i walked into the council swimming pool heads turned, i was proud, I was the kid to be seen,
I dived in the pool "feet firts" and thats about when things changed and i didn't want to be seen,
As i climbed out of the pool my cossy grew and grew and grew, it now fitted my nipples, and the tight bum fixture was very loose, my skin turned blue from the wool dye and my face a very bright red from my friends cheers and laughs.
But i had a full childhood and didnt expect tobe rewarded for everything i wanted,
I soon learnt some things you have to wait for until the times right,
Hence a good start to understanding gardening, some things need tobe germinated first.
Knitting !!! Well thank christ my wifes never asked me if i'd like her to knit me anything.
The only sign of any form of knitting "if you can call a spiders webb knitting is the only thing i look at in great orr, the fantastic work of art these creatures produce on a fosty night for us all to admire on the frosty morn is something worth looking for.
Gardening is about thought, a plan for your plot and a little hope,
If you got it wrong the first time !!! thats when the otherside of gardening comes in "the finding out why it went wrong" the using of the time when outside work is a no no "freezing weather"
Nows the time for the books a nice drink and the fire blazing away "it's still gardening but at a different time scale" the learning time,
when your interested in something learning is a pleasure Its not like going to school
And the same can be said for gardening "It's not like work when you want to do it it's a pleasure because you like it & you'll find thoughts creep into your mind you never thought you'd think about all while your gardening away or as my wife calls it "POTTERING".
