'Fiction'


I've just waved goodbye to the very large man in the very small car as he set off for Bexhill via the New Forest. He looks vulnerable in a mini made by the British, not the Germans.

Five minutes later, he sent a text saying he was coming straight back - forgot some vital dental equipment which he needs on Monday, back in Bremerhaven - so I waved goodbye for  second time. I always miss him for a few days after he has stayed, but I did not expect to see him again so soon. We vowed to meet up in the pub in half an hour, but I don't think that will happen.

Every possible weapon is now being used against Trump, and a couple of women who say they were groped by him about 40 years ago have been pulled out of retirement. I wonder why they have left it so long into the campaign - maybe because they did not think he would get so far either.

Normally, America sneezes and we catch a cold, but in this case we began opening historical sexual offence cases against celebrities long before the U.S. We did so to sell newspapers (or make money from them) but - with the exception of Bill Cosby - the U.S. is doing it for a purpose. A very important purpose. They are trying to save the world from destruction, and you can't get much more important than that.

It is a shame that we cannot afford to stop Russia from killing children in Syria without causing the end of the world as well.

  1. I don't know the history of your friendship with Thomas, but it sounds sweet. As for the other, I'm a wreck over the possibilities.

    1. I first met him 28 years ago. I am an inward wreck over the other possibilities, but I have been hardened through Brexit.

  2. It is a train wreck over here in this election. Basically, you are a FOX news believer of lies which have been fact checked a proven lies or you just have to take the high road. Trump supporters will not change their minds and believe what they want to believe and deflect to Bill Clinton, who is not running. No politician is perfect nor can they say/reveal the same things in public that they say in private, but one is near perfect when compared to the other scumbag. This game of chicken with Putin is going to have to be stopped one way or another. It is very frightening. And to think he is even trying to interfere in the US election boggles the mind. He is seriously losing it.

    1. I don't mind the meltdown, it's the fallout I am worried about.

    2. What astounds me - and makes his election seem possible - is that I know some perfectly nice, well-educated professional men in their 70s who are voting for him.
