The bitter lexicographer

Jones spends his time writing & performing his songs, writing to the papers, doing illustrations for Zuiderlucht and browsing idly around the net for considerably longer than any adult should . . .

I love my Irish lass very much, but even she is well aware of my thoughts as per a second go of matrimony. If I ever do take the vows again, I want to do so from the peak of Mt. Everest or some other such elevated location. Of course, this requires that I overcome my fear of heights first. So yanno . . no rush.

‘Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.’ Wilde or maybe Shaw or maybe Boswell . . . .

“You can last seven days with nothing to eat,
Without water you’re up against the wall,
You’ll survive without air for a minute or two,
Without hope you cannot live at all.”
‘After three in the morning’ Rowland Jones

Take your pick! 🙂
