Just Checking In


Thought it was about time I posted something again here.

For those of you wondering where I’ve been and who haven’t read the Comments on my last post, I was admitted to hospital a while ago, and have been convalescing since I was discharged a few weeks ago. More on all of this will follow.

For those of you who did read the Comments section on my last post – and specifically, those of you who took the time to enquire as to my well being and/or leave messages wishing me well – a massive, heartfelt thank you. They were all very much appreciated.

All the time I was in hospital, I had in my mind exactly which song I’d be re-opening with, but I’ve changed my mind.

Anyway, first time back, so I’ll keep this brief. The purpose of this post is really just to reconnect, say thank you and see how I manage writing again.

This kinda sums things up:


The First Edition – Just Checked In

More soon.

Sunday Morning Coming Down

I imagine there’s quite a few of you, especially those of you who live in Leicester, who will identify with this morning’s choice.

Pre-solo career, pre-fried chicken outlets, pre-fairly obvious face-lift and creosote, it’s Kenny Rogers and The First Edition, and the song best known for featuring in the Coen brother’s masterpiece “The Big Lebowski”:


The First Edition – Just Dropped In

Rustle me up a White Russian, will you?

More soon.
