Anything can happen, Out of the Blue. – Labatt Blue Commercial What difference can a day make? Well, let me tell you. Today in the afternoon, a young nurse called D came to drop of keys to XX. She was very cute, petite and had a great smile. We chatted for a couple of minutes […]


How next to impossible is the exercise of virtue! It requires constant watchfulness, constant guard. – William Golding, Rites of Passage. “I didn’t want to be the other man.

How It Happens

It is better to be unfaithful, than faithful without wanting to be. – Brigitte Bardot. If I have to be honest then I admit I waited by the phone for most of the day. One 30 second call to let me know what had gone wrong, and I returned to my vigil. Late afternoon the […]

Sparks Fly

It’s just a little crush Not like I faint every time we touch It’s just some little thing Not like everything I do depends on you. Jennifer Paige. Crush. I see her, I feel her, no matter where. Stirring inside me, recognition ignites A step too close, a touch no one dares. She floods my […]


Absolutely outrageous, mate! The Shamen. Ebeneezer Goode. I caught a fleeting glimpse of happiness again tonight. She seems to be a visitor I have been flirting with more and more of late. She comes quickly, surprising me, causing squeals of delight from me while blasting down the highway, or in the case of tonight, making […]

I Love Sundays
