My son is in America so took my daughter to see Reading v Arsenal. We are Reading Fans now we live near but have been fans of Arsenal since the McLintock Days (well I have anyway, kids weren't born).
But getting tickets is damn hard. First time I managed to get tickets with PJ was at Middlesboro when Arsenal won 0-4.
Yesterday I take his sister Bridie to Reading and Arsenal do it again, winning 0-4.
I'm "talking football" because this wasn't just a win. I can honestly say that this is the best I've ever seen any football team play "live". The Reading fans applauded at the end. Some of the Arsenal football was magical, Brazil at their best. And Bridie got a hug of the Reading mascot.
Woke Sunday AM feeling like crap, no more sleep so Boot Camp Admin, check my word-count for the month (29,950) and update the BC Publications for the year.
SUNDAY PROMPTS at 05:55
Crossing the Line
I remember, I remember, the house where I was born
They kept us close till nigh on noon and then they rang the bell
The Letters of Martha Flint
The beauty of the morning, silent, bare
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels
Singing Upside Down
Stained Glass and Other Distractions
Zen and the Art of Fixing a Puncture
The Long and Winding Road
How the make ball-bearings round
The Last Thing He Did
The window is starless, still, the clock ticks
I long for scenes where man has never stood
