Sunshine by ProBodie

Saturday was quite a day - I got a little bit of writing and some laundry done in the morning, plus shopping, before heading off to the Park for dancing. Was expecting D, W&G and V&A as Helmut's feet were too sore from last week's march. V didn't make it, she'd had a hotwater flood in her printmaking workshop and had to do some emergency clean-up. Still, we did good. Now pretty confident about 'Nonesuch' and 'Black Nag', although the recorded music I have is too short for the first and too long for the latter. Have to talk to the musos.

Keith the Scot came to dinner & stayed the night. He's just co-edited a collection of short stories, called "cOck" & he gave me a free copy. It looks good - I'll say more when I've finished reading it. We talked writing & publishing & he said I should write original stuff (well, I might, but Pros is such fun, y'know).

I made the chicken, potatoes & olives dish from 'Gondola on the Murray', which was very nice. L&D&E dropped by after a dinner out & brought red wine and Kahlua. All gone now :-) As a matter of fact, all the beer is gone as well - how did that happen?

All Blacks won the Bledisloe. L enjoyed pictures of French Rugby players :-)

Took Keith the Scot to the airport. Read the first story in "cOcks", "The Devil in Mr Pussy (Or How I Found God Inside My Wife)" by Paul Haines. Rather good. Hard to describe, without giving the game away, but here's a snippet:

Mr Pussy paused in his chomping. He sat back and nodded towards his bickies.
'What's wrong?' I knelt to pat him.
He nodded again at the bowl.
The bickies smelt meaty and spicy. According to the information on the box, they contained Semenex, a product based on L-Carnatine and L-Lysine amino acids. And, as I now knew, they helped increase sperm production.
'You want me to have some?'
Mr Pussy purred.

That Mystery Show: I have another possible contender. It's "Sierra Nine" (1963, Associated-Rediffusion, broadcast on ITV1). Would possibly have been broadcast in NZ in '64 or '65, definitely no earlier.
A 13-part British children’s program about three young scientists. They were part of a watchdog organization named Sierra Nine that protected the world from anyone trying to cause harm with scientific methods.

Anyone remember this one?
