I Feel Quite DiscomBOBulated!

DiscomBOBulated.

Bertie: “I feel quite discomBOBulated. It’s very nice down here in Whitchurch. Just above Solva, near St David’s in West Wales. Rosemary is lovely. It’s very quiet. Peaceful. But I miss being part of everything that is happening in Laurel Cottage. Bobby will ‘rescue’ me when he is allowed to go on a long train journey. No idea when. DON’T mention Parcel Force!”

Eamonn & Bertie sat in a wooden chair.

Together at Rosemary’s in Whitchurch.

Bobby: “I feel quite discomBOBulated. Living each day as it comes. Content to believe that what has happened has been ‘lucky’ in its outcome. But discomBOBulated by my acceptance of that. Finding solace in Bobby 2; the 93 bus; Waitrose. And months of twice weekly travel to St George’s in Tooting.”

The 93 and Bobby 2.

Eamonn: “I feel quite discomBOBulated. The euphoria of seeing Skomer and Skokholm for the first time tempered by being witness to everything that happened. Even in the back of an ambulance. As agreed with Bertie, three stories were written. The last, in particular, really good, being filmed after dark on Dream Island (Skokholm).”

Trevor: “I feel quite discomBOBulated having no idea what is going on. But I did get a ride on the 93 and a cruise round Waitrose!”

Bobby 2: “I am a shopping basket extraordinaire. With freshly ‘3-in-1’d’ wheels and nice new stitching on my damaged lid. I may only come out when the car cannot be used, but then I get the admiration I deserve. Bobby is talking about using me even when the car comes back.”

The Car. Last seen in deepest West Wales. Rumoured to be in Guildford now seeking repair.

September.

September is Bobby’s favourite month. Two blogs have been written before (September, September 1954). Holidays and Airshows for this September are cancelled for now. So here is a set from Duxford earlier this year of the Breitling Wingwalkers. Girls doing things on top of pre war biplanes, looping the loop, they wouldn’t do in their own front room.

September celebrates the Battle of Britain:

Spitfire!

William Walton “Spitfire Prelude”:

(Be sure not to miss the second half of this film starting at 4.04 in depicting a modern day film of a lone Spitfire caressing the sky as only a Spitfire can do.)

And finally. It really is a lovely day tomorrow:

Bertie sat on a pebble beach with his right arm around Eamonn looking out to sea.

    I’ll see if I can arrange a car from work to pick up Bertie. Clearly a Rolls-Royce is the correct mode of transport for a bear of class.

    You must be bleedin joking Baby Ball. A roller would never squeeze through those narrow lanes near Solva. Do Rolls Royce make a van? That would be better mate!
