Halloween Party

I had to get out for I’d been too long single I rang round a couple of mates The Halloween party, I wanted to mingle Perhaps we could get us some dates Across the ballroom a witch with a broom Her haggard face craggy and wizened I wished I could find me a beauty and… BOOM! My fairy Godmother had listened The lights seemed to glare and I could only stare As the music became less apparent The girl that approached me was beyond compare And everyone else seemed transparent Her near azure eyes would conspire to beguile She would glide with a sensuous gait She gave me a look I’d not seen in a while And her smile could turn gay fellows straight With no introduction just instant seduction She planted my hands on her hips My gentleman’s manners faced instant reduction As we savoured each other’s lips That night was a sure thing, I had little doubt That soon she’d be scratching my itch A clicking of fingers then I heard a shout Terry… you’re snogging the witch!

Hope your mum in law gets better soon, Tom. As for your back, I sometimes get chronic back pain and I find bending over backwards helps at least a little. I don’t know if I can describe this but here goes… stand back to back with someone who can lift you. Link arms and get them to bend forward thus lifting you off your feet and forcing your back to bend backwards. If it helps, great. If it makes things worse… well… don’t do it again! Might help.

A lot going on at the moment, my wife found her mom collapsed on the floor and she was rushed into hospital, she's over the worst now but not out of the woods yet, as for me, I'm still hobbling, I need a parrot lol.

Hi, Tom, I was wondering if you were well, (you’d mentioned trapped nerves in your back). So it’s nice to hear from you. You’re right about drinking though, those beer goggles can get a guy in serious trouble. Terry

Those witches have an unfair advantage, Eve. When they spot a Brad Pitt-lookalike hunk like me, they click their fingers and we’re spellbound. Mind you, I think she’s distorted all my mirrors as well! ;-). Terry
