So, here's the thing! My new book is out. I know, call me an anorak! All I do is write. I churn out a book every two months, or so like a conveyor belt. There's no respite. People are out there - a bit like the truth - they read my current offering in a day and then say, "Yeah great! When's the next one out?" All I can say is, "It's a good job I like writing!" I'm on a writing rollercoaster, and I
'Well Toady, what do you think?'
'Yeah you. You invariably have an opinion.'
'I certainly do. I think your new book's fab. As a matter of interest, will your next book be out by Christmas?'
On a more serious note - I know, it's not like me to be serious - but I was walking the dogs this morning, and saw two ugly sights. One was a truck driver reading a piece of paper while he was driving, and the other was a woman texting as she went round a corner in the opposite direction - Will these people never learn? If it was up to me, I'd line them up against the wall and... It's against the law, but how do you enforce it? I'm always wary of me and the dogs getting mown down by a careless driver.
Right, serious bit over. In 1972 - I know, that was a long time ago - I became familiar with Bill Cosby when I was propping up the Junior Ranks Bar at Iserlohn British Military Hospital. When I got married, I introduced the wife to him. She's having one those senior retrospective moments and hunting for him on YouTube. So, I thought I'd introduce you lot to him - funny! You'll wet yourself. So, here's two to sample 'Go Karts' and 'Tonsils', but there's millions of others - Noah, Medic, 49, Cake for Breakfast, Playground - don't say I didn't warn you that you'll laugh until you fall over and die!
On a medium serious note, my wife has started pottery classes! I know, on Monday nights I'm a pottery widower! Me and the dogs call her 'Potter Pam'. Well, we sing 'Potter Pam' to the 'Postman Pat' tune as she's going out of the door - Hey, anything to help! And on Friday morning she goes to painting classes, so we call her 'Painter Pam' then - yeah, same song only with one word changed - little things amuse little minds!
She's the teacher's pet after her first attempt (see photograph on the left)! Oh, and I haven't told you about her little yellow apron - it's got 'Potter Pam' on the front! Well, I suppose I'd better let you lot get on with your lives. Have a good one!
Hi, I'm Tim Ellis - I write a lot and I hope you enjoy what I write.
