No, I'm not on a begging trip!
I was controlling links and realized that I have orphaned this blog!
I suppose it's because I haven't done any writing at all since getting two books (still with some missprints which I really must correct) onto obooko.com. The titles are "A start in Life" (category biography available here:(http://www.obooko.com/obooko_memoir/bookpages/mem0009_start_in_life_jones.php) and a novel (http://www.obooko.com/obooko_general/bookpages/general2/gen0103_friends_for_life_jones.php), then I even managed to upload a drama I wrote yonks ago here:(http://www.obooko.com/obooko_art_media/bookpages/artmed0011_visitors_script_jones.php)
I did think about lulu.com and will probably go back there. I really wanted to see if anyone would even download!
Actually completing these oeuvres was an achievement in itself! My problem is that I'm a bit of a writer, a bit of a painter and a lot of a musician. It all keeps me out of mischief! Or does it? Looking back, I realize that some of my exploits, which inclue 4 one-woman art shows, were really a bit over the top. But sticking firmly to the adage: Nothing ventured. nothing gained, I'm not really planning to change anything.
Now follows a short sketch I wrote for stage presentation simply ages ago, when my neighbour in the block was British and ran a little theatre. We eventually put on a 2 women evening of my sketches and also read T.S. Eliot's "Cats" called "Cats and other creatures". The show was a big success, but I don't think this sketch was played that evening.
This version is the happy one. I'm compiling a whole lot of stuff as a book and I have another version of this sketch which does not have quite such a happy ending! Press Control with the + sign if the print is too small!
