happy birthday eddie

Post  Guest on Thu Dec 08, 2011 4:43 pm

Hi eddie. I was gooling to find you a present. I almost posted 'The Dangerous Book for Old Codgers....but it had tips for 'mobility scooters' so I'll post that in a few decades.

So I googled Van Gogh's 'Old Shoes'. I was going to add: 'not getting older, just wearing in'. But Van Gogh's shoes looked worn out not worn in.
Then there were images of old tennis shoes and I started to overthink trying to find the appropriate shoe for you.

I decided on this pair.

A little bit battered but still afloat, is enough cheers cheers cheers

Happy Birthday eddie. It's a pleasure to post on the same forum as you pirat I love you

Thanks, Moony. One of the nicest birthday prezzies I've ever had.

Tom Waits puts it very well in "Ruby's Arms":


Railroad boots.


Leather jacket.

My birthday's tomorrow: 9th December. Must give some thought to a suitable celebration.

A real pleasure to be on the same forum as you too, Moony.

Thank you, Eddie Smile


I had time to hear the song you posted first, "The Endless Plain of Fortune"



He pronounces Segovia (the name of my city as you may know) very well hehe
Who is Segovia there? or is it just a made up character for the song?

Not at all. Swings a fine axe (trans: plays a mean guitar).

No, just a lucky guess.

I'd been watching the very last episode of David Renwick's excellent One Foot in the Grave where the song is used to good effect in the closing sequence. "The best you can do is forgive" is particularly pertinent to the situation of Victor's relict, Margaret.

...ah. One Foot in the Grave has just returned to telly here. Excellent show. I have my niece and her boyfriend visiting. They're at mum's now and will return soon. I expect they'll think I'm rude if I post with my back to them when they return.

Anyway eddie, many very happy returns of the day. I love you
