I washed a white shirt in a bucket this morning for reasons I won't go into here. Later, I'm going to write as many strips as possible on a park bench in the shade. I'll probably have egg, beans and chips (fries - see last week's strip) for tea (dinner - ditto). And after spending more time on my strip, I'll read some more of my novel and go to bed around elevenish. Not living it up by a long shot, but living for sure. I will thank God for every second today.
Billy Connolly, probably the funniest man on the planet, on his 'Two Night Stand' tour, talked about telling a man he worked with that he had a terrible cough. The man replied, "The graveyard is full of people who would love to have this cough." (Billy Connolly's way of telling it was seriously funnier, obviously).
