Alternate title: ‘Wherever you go, there you are’
The alternate title is a well known Brazilian expression
that basically means ‘live for the moment’…..
…..which is exactly what millions of Brazilians do at Rio’s
carnival every year
…..and probably what the England football team should do
Well done, boys !
You beat Montenegro 4-1 !
But it’s worthwhile remembering that this is a country not
much bigger than a postage stamp…..
…..and with a population the size of one of London’s suburbs
In fact, saying that one plays for the Montenegro national team
is the equivalent of saying you play for your street in Liverpool !
Good luck with the next stage of qualifying for a chance to do the
samba in Brazil…..
…..why not just give the ball to Andros Townsend…..
…..he seems to want to score goals
And goals win games !
Either way, enjoy the moment, it may prove to be fleeting
Back to the search for Big Joe……..
The morning pant was different this am…….
Colder, for sure
But after yesterday’s storms the promenade was buried under
…..and running on shingle is like running on cobblestones
As I passed by the National Coastwatch Station it did produce
a wry G.- smile……
These fellas are like failed voyeurs…..
Even birdwatching has a point to it !
But the volunteer (all training provided free !) ‘spotters’
just stare out to sea and hope something goes wrong so
they can tell somebody else to try and fix the problem
At least a lifeguard throws him (her) self in the sea to save
the person in distress
At least a lifeboat puts to sea to assist a stricken vessel
At least a twitcher can file an online report of his feathered
friends so others can come and enjoy them too
No, the tea-drinking habitue of the N.C.I. is little more than
schadenfreude-loving pensioner with a penchant for radios !
I don’t mind them really…..
…..because I know they are looking out for Big Joe…..
…..he swims in the sea roughly opposite the elevated N.C.I.
…..and this is Hernia Bay…..
…..they don’t do lifeguards here
Back to food, music and love
The Groover takes delivery today of a Mrs Wiggins pork pie
as supplied by The Butchers Arms…..
…..one of these monster pies will sustain the G.-man for a
week in the lunch department accompanied by a jar of
Said pies are the acme of the pie world !
Said pies are only available on order through certain
establishments like The Butchers and by invitation only
Be lucky !
I’m off to see Mrs Wiggins (not her real name for legal reasons)
to get mine
Love it ! ! ! ! !
ps, Music ? Well that will be James Hunter next month, the
coolest blue-eyed soul boy this side of the atlantic
