'tis almost time to WASSAIL!

Old apple tree, we wassail thee,
And hoping thou wilt bear
For the Lord doth know where we shall be
Till apples come another year.
For to bear well, and to bloom well
So merry let us be,
Let every man take off his hat,
And shout to the old apple tree!
Old apple tree, we wassail thee,
And hoping thou wilt bear
Hatfuls, capfuls and three bushel bagsful
And a little heap under the stairs,
Hip, Hip, Hooray!

my favourite celebration this time of year - the wassail - we'll drink homemade cider and sing to the trees out in the old orchard to ensure another fruitful and successful year to come!

my wassail of choice?  West Croft in Brent Knoll, innit.

the clocks have changed, it's pretty fascinating. we've changed time, we've all travelled one hour, we've added 60 minutes. i always thought time was a sacred cow, but it turns out that we can just tweak it a bit when we need to, so it's totally arbitrary.

i really wish that sacred cow called MONEY was as open to a li'l tweakeroo, or a big tweakerama when times came a-calling....

this great (and rather dashing) man can time travel. i hope i am around next time he comes visiting. he claims his people have ended death, disease and aging.

...aaaaand another thing....

busy business

what a busy month of October - Cafe Pyrus was the perfect setting for the paintings I've popped out so far! I hope you got a chance to see it!!

what's that?
you didn't?!
well don't get your knickers in a twist, because Dan Forsey of The Tannery School of Music in Kitchener has bagged Hayley Schmalz AND me for a double header! we'll be schmoozing with you riff-raff on Friday November 12th from 6 - 8.

Hayley's work is basically amazing, if you haven't seen her etchings have a warm up gander at these.

Einstein is the smaller of these two dudes. his bezzie is Playboy.
