HOPEFULLY SPHERICAL & co won't be so keen on escape now: I've got them a new tank. I passed it yesterday in an alleyway ten minutes from my house when I had other things on my mind and thought, that's nice, but it's not really much bigger than the one they're in at the moment; I wasn't up for lugging it home there and then and assumed, oh well the local kids will have smashed it up by the morning.
Well seeing as they obviously have not done so (and the local populace are so not into the keeping of fish or small animals, which surprises me, (if it didn't get heartily smashed up I'd assumed someone else would purloin it) I took it home with a friend this afternoon.
It leaks (as expected). I knew there had to be something wrong with it, and sure enough, a hairline fracture runs across the bottom. The glass is thinner and lighter than their present home (making this one more portable); the front is bowed out slightly and it has a mirror back. It's far deeper, meaning Spherical shall have far more trouble on her next attempted escape escapade.
I picked out the cigarette ends, old yogurt cartons, crisp packets and till receipts and it's lying before my drawers (as in chest of drawers, not underwear! honestly you have knickers on the brain you do!!) ... it's damp with rain and a bit scruffy and muddy and in need of a good polish. But I'm sure it shall make a marvellous home ramblery for the robbies.

VIDEO: PAUL MCCARTNEY & MICHAEL JACKSON ~ SAY SAY SAY
This McCartney-written song far far FAR outstrips the dreadful Jackson-written Girl Is Mine (the 2 duets were recorded in vice versa exchange at the same time in 1982; released 1983)... this is a great video... wasn't Linda McCartney lovely?... look closely for Michael Jackson's "lover" cameo played by his SISTER LaToya (see! he was weird even back then!!)
AWAY IN AMSTERDAM - Tomorrow I am going to Amsterdam to be the body guard of nearly 7 year old grandson Toby. It is about time that I leave home for a few days because I think...
