A Quick Catch-up!

Good morning, people of my group! 🙂 *waves*

A little news update: Dolly’s front wheel bearings and brakes are in such a poor state right now I basically travel to work and back, and short distance trips. There is something haunting about the ‘wah-wah-wah’ sound made by worn out wheel bearings… especially when you have been driving like that for months until they start going ‘WAH!-WAH!-WAH!’ as if tapping you urgently on the shoulder to get your attention… like “these things need changing NOW!

Thing is, there are so few workshops and mechanics willing to work on a VW bug these days (bunch of chicken-shit cowards if you ask me 😉 ) probably because they aren’t real mechanics or real workshops, just new part fitters who know where the computer diagnostic plug is on modern “cars” and would get lost looking for one on a 1962 bug. Finding a place or person to actually woman-up and do the job takes time.

Anyway, so Dolly will finally be going in to one of the last ‘bug doctors’ in town tomorrow afternoon, so I’ll be car-less for the weekend, but at least she will be getting new brake shoes and front wheel bearings. No more ‘wah-wah-wah’ – just a silent glide punctuated by the music that is the VW flat four 1200… happy trails! 🙂

In other news, last night my girlfriend Kay and I went round to our friend and neighbor Andrew for a visit and a hairdo. We ended up having wine and pizza and loads of laffs as well …I’m sure the neighbors on all three sides heard about it hehehe 😛 So this morning, I feel pretty… oh so pretty… la la la la LA! 🙂 Consider yourselves all lucky you didn’t have to hear me sing 😉

I’ve also been looking for more marketing and publicity options to get my stuff noticed. I’m open to suggestions, assistance, offers, if any of you have ideas/options/means to market for me!

Also, I’m hoping someone in the film-making community will show interest in turning at least one of my short stories or novels into a short/movie/mini series… any takers? 🙂

Yes, my shit is that good – ask the people who have actually read it 😉

Have a great day!
