    Re: Army June 2021

    Hiya everyone and the absent JC?

    The funeral was truly 'lovely' for a lovely, lovely man. I will miss him very much. It was held in a surf club in a coastal village. The entire glass wall folded out and the day was perfect winter sun glinting on the ocean. The sound of the surf rolled in all the way through the service and when we looked up, can you believe a whale breached? Dolphins everywhere. It was almost a thing of fantasy.
    Today was my 56th birthday. A few tears for my uncle while I worked.

    You know, I touched the lid of his urn and thought - if this is all it comes down to on the physical plane, I bloody well better get on and start caring for my soul better. I think that might have been his final gift to me.

    Anyway, I'll spare you the unedited version of my thoughts on the long drive home. As above, Satz. It brings it all home!


    So glad to hear you're on track again Fickle.

    Hope you are OK JC.

    Good night Bridget and Fickle and waves to everyone else. Glad funeral went well and I am sure that you had time to have a good think on the long drive home. God that show sounds horrendous Satz, donít think I will be putting it on my list.

    Had two walks this morning. Brought the doggies first and then went with my crochet group and we had lunch outside. Beautiful day again and it was nice to be able to enjoy it.

    Happy to hear you are safely home, Nurse Jones. BTW, have a chat with your soul, it’s always available as your inner guide. xoxo

    @byebyebridgetjones I had exactly the same thought when my Dad was buried many moons ago - I've been searching since for something to make sense besides a man with a beard 'up there' .....
    I've decided that the physical just dies but the essence of who we are ( the soul ?) lives on - just not sure how or where. That's a work in progress.

    But Mers & Rustop I think we need to watch this stuff because :


    • Shows how hard healthcare people work - while we are banging around moaning about crap.
    • The human side of doctors as they fight for their patients for a bed - or cry with them when bad news is delivered.
    • I for one realise how lucky I am not to have any illness at all.
    • Reminds me how fickle (!) life is - and we should make the most of it. In the words of the great man ( Bob ) that none of Band Aid wanted to sing

    "tonight thank God it's them instead of you "

    Off to the workhouse.
