Can you believe it , this photo taken of me at the age of 23 years and only 456 months and a few odd days shows you what a fast life does to you. In fact my Doctor told me to give up wine and women ,but I can sing as much as I like ! Apart from that this is my new ” Struggling Artist ” look . I have not put much about me here “cos most of me can be found on the Storm pages. Cunning plan to get all the pages read , in point of fact it didn’t help at all ! A quick thumbnail sketch would be as follows : passionate about ,Animals ,motorcycles , music ,humour, lived on a farm outside of Plettenberg Bay a holiday venue and certainly not an economic powerhouse. Have recently relocated back to Cape Town and have to admit, missing the country life does hurt a little. Would like to be chasing women but can’t remember what for !!
I am won’t to say “carpe diem” or seize the day , ‘cos I doubt if we are getting it back !
If you noticed the piece of string holding my glasses in place , good for you , this is part of growing old. I was searching for hours on end the other day looking for the #$* glasses , when I realized I could see quite well , that’s correct they were on my large flat nose.
It’s almost like going back to five years old being sent to the shop with a note and money in a small bag on a piece of string around my neck. My motorbike keys are on a lanyard ,modern name for a piece of string, cell phone etc ,etc . I’m walking around with 15 pieces of string around my neck otherwise I’d lose the lot. The photo of the car is a Lotus 69F Formula Ford later , converted to side radiators by my wonderful father Jack Newton long gone and still missed. Taken at Killarney Race Track Cape Town in the 1970s halcyon days . Dad a “trouble maker ” of Olympic Standards kept us in fits of laughter always ensuring we didn’t take ourselves too seriously.
