Blogger Challenge 3 – When good Birthdays go bad

with 10 comments

Never one to pass up a blogger challenge (especially amongst us lot) I’m having a go at the one set for June 2019 by Wynneth of ShopSL – here.  It’s entitled When good Birthdays go bad, and Wynn told us about her 18th birthday in a salutary tale which I really enjoyed although I bet she didn’t the next morning 🙂  If you’d like to take up this challenge read Wynn’s post, contact her to receive your balloon and away you go.

So this is another salutary tale about my own youth:-

 

Back in the year… ahem! (the 1800s, I know) I was very fond of my Vespa scooter and bombing around on it. I was going to University via an overseas scholarship and it was damn hard work, so I liked to take time out to relax whenever possible. Not that I could afford to do much but my grandma who lived near to the Uni let me lodge with her and keep the scooter in her shed. It was OK as long as it was out of sight, a bit like yours truly! I have NEVER been any good with alcohol despite my dad being a ill tempered whiskey loving Scots bloke, who who could down half a bottle of the finest malt, no trouble at all.

Well, one evening I met friends at a pub to celebrate a birthday and without really thinking about it (as you don’t at that age) took along the scooter. We had a great time and the pub owner had even ordered a birthday cake would you believe, free and gratis because she sometimes took pity on us students.

When chucking out time came around, everyone started to make their way home. It was unseasonably cold outside. I was left wondering if I could get away with driving home on my scooter which was parked in the road by the pub, probably not, but I was off my head on cheap cider and reckoned it would be fine. I went to get on the bike and didn’t make it. I slid none too gracefully into the gutter and could barely move. I was looking up at a very clear starry night and it was freezing. Everything was going numb and as I closed my eyes, I heard a couple of folks walk past.

It just happened to be one of my tutors and his wife out for a late evening constitutional dragging their hapless dog along with them, I could hear the dog puffing away. The wife muttered something about the young people of today and my tutor diplomatically cleared his throat and they both walked on. Fortunately one of my friends came back to see where I’d got to, chained the scooter up and dragged me to my feet. I think it took almost an hour (normally a 20 minute walk) to get back to his rooms at Uni – or so he said – he was a trainee medical man and famous for misbehaviour. Apparently I was admiring the gardens all the way up the street and he couldn’t get me to move very fast. He said he’d learned more about the sex lives of trees and plants than was suitable for a man studying human anatomy.

I retrieved the scooter in the early morning before anybody noticed. My bloody tutor made fatuous comments from then on about always donning a hat, scarf and gloves during cold weather, especially when out drinking. Nuff said!

Second Life Home & Garden Expo 2019 #4

with 6 comments

 

The Expo is almost over for this year, it’ll run right through to Sunday April 7th and has Events on that day. It’s been a great fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, so far L$2,168,000 has been collected. With bids coming in for the Auctions and votes for the H&G Decorating contest, no doubt that total will rise.

For my final post, I thought I’d try out a vintage scene featuring an Edwardian dining room.  If you’re into historical roleplay or just love that era of design, this post will be of particular interest.

The Edwardian era ran from 1901 to 1910 and was much lighter in style than the previous Victorian era.  After the heaviness, clutter and dark colours of Victorian interiors, folks wanted something new and cheerful. Edwardian style was a breath of fresh air and featured more informal, feminine décor with the beginnings of pastel colours and floral patterns. Influences at that time were the Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts movements and Queen Anne styling. Some influential designers were Thomas Sheraton for furniture, René Lalique for glassware and Louis Comfort Tiffany for lighting.

1. Spargel & Shine on Hope 9

I’m using the downstairs section in the Mathilda Cottage. It’s a beautiful home which is quite compact at 14 by 12 metres and has an open plan ground floor with stairs to the upper floor with its tiled roof and casement windows. There’s also a porch out front. Land Impact is 142 and the Mathilda has a versatile decorator menu, so you’ll be able to change exterior and interior walls and windows to your heart’s content with a great mix of texture options. I went with lilac walls and semi-tinted windows.

Blooming Marvellous

“Nothing is so beautiful as Spring –
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy pear tree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.” – Gerard Manley Hopkins

Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889) is considered to be one of the greatest poets of the Victorian era. However, because his style was so radically different from that of his contemporaries, his best poems were not accepted for publication during his lifetime, and his achievement was not fully recognized until after World War I.
