The Operation: Eamonn.

“Hello there! Top o’ the morning, even if it’s the feckin afternoon. Eamonn here. Bertie has asked me to write this story as it’s far too painful for him. The story of his Operation. Oy was tere and saw the whole thing. Its a tale of DISMEMBERMENT. Of DISEMBOWELMENT. Without anaesthetic. And not for the faint hearted. Words can’t describe what Bertie went through, so I have used music instead. Oy am told Bobby and Diddley loved melancholic music. Not sad, but mournfully contented. A time for mindful relaxation. Nice memories. Peaceful nostalgia.

Lighting a Candle to Diddley

We didn’t light this candle in Lyme Regis. It was one of 5,000 lit on the famous Cobb for their yearly fundraising spectacular. Sadly we couldn’t stay until the 26th to see it.

And, since this is a musical blog, we close with a different Alice sung by Diddley’s favourite: Tom Waits.

    Oh dear Bertie! Very disconcerting to see your head off.. you have been very brave… wishing you a speedy recovery, though it seems you’re already better….one of the advantages of being a teddy…
