A Pair Of Partridges And An Apple Tree

Got them grey skies pink apple blossom blues

A bitter cold wind sweeps across my English country garden. The delicate apple blossoms fall, smashed by the horizontal arrows of stinging rain. It’s just not bloody fair is it?


The shivering birds huddle, the fledgling crows are thrown from their nests, the Conservative Party, obviously starving, has gone cannibal and  eats itself alive over whether or not Britain is part of Europe.(Google satellite maps can help).  Oh yes – it’s summer in England.

Duh!          (youreuropemap.com)    

I should be cheerful because I’ve just finished sound editing the final edition of the audio book edition of “The Gentleman And The Rogue” by Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon. I tell you – it’s a sexy romp in which a gentleman and his young handsome valet set out to rescue a maiden from an amazingly sinister and evil villain. Oooh – there’s tight riding breeches and enough upright gentlemanly romance to tickle any follicles. There’s horses hooves on gravelled roads, the pre-Dickensian London above stairs – below stairs ambiance, a guilt ridden toff, a cocky tart, a cast of colourful characters, the Napoleonic wars and a sensitive love story. Honest – this is a good good English Regency historical tale. The Gallo-Romano narrator, Jasper de Montfort (a likely name) swings both and every other way to cover all the angles. I loved it!! I’ll let you know when the audio book is out there.


Run Juanita – These guys are rowing their island out of Europe.

Anyway, in the vile greyness of yet another failed spring/summer, I spotted a couple of disconsolate European illegal immigrant creatures doing what the Conservative Party cannot do -maintaining unity. I love red legged partridges (ssh- they  are introduced Spanish illegals).  They are  never apart and so so sweet!
