THE VIRGIN GARDENER.(2/2)

Ben, feeling like a right cloth eared dunderheed, unfortunately for Ben there was no darkness of the night to swallow up his shadows of inaptness for the sun shone brightly as if to promote the brutal facts. Alas, he now heard the leather brogues of the all-in black Gaelic priest striding towards the rickety garden fence. after the last casual visit, Ben had been advised by his wife, this was no ordinary priest, but a much higher up in the Catholic belief and chapel, a ‘Monsignor’. In Ben experience, he was a compassionate and considerate clergy man. Arriving, the accomplished spiritual man asked softly if Ben would care to come to the chapel door, perhaps on Wednesday, to collect some potted flowers and green cutting which might benefit him.

Just as the man of God turned to leave, he quipped, “haven’t seen you at mass?” where Ben honestly replied, “no, I’m not of your faith…or any devotion!”. With this note, he marched off up the hill. Over the next few days, Ben was concerned he may have burnt his bridges with such a stark confession. On the actual day, he arrived at the Parochial house door, and for the life of him, he could not recall his benefactor’s actual name. in fact, couldn’t remember the ‘Monsignor’ mentioning his name, or title. The big, wooded door opened by another unknown priest, obviously impatiently waiting for some sort of response. Under pressure Ben’s brain went blank. In a awkward dash to say something …he loudly burped out, “Is your gaffer in?”. the startled man gave such a unwelcoming glare…for if stares could kill…, Ben would be turned to granite…or salt!

The stoned face priest demanded Ben to wait in a cold manner of suspicion, followed by an attitude you would imagine people witnessed with terror in the Spanish inquisition. The ‘Monsignor’ entered the hall several minutes later, spoke to the wary protector, before warmly taking Ben through the chapel’s green house, offering horticulture gifts until the ancient rusty barrow was full. On the other hand, Ben remembered reading …Leo Tolstoy had stated, ‘I’ll give you land abundant; honest soil and by means of that land... I will get you into my power’. This may suggest there is dis-honest lure, but Ben… the Gable-end virgin gardener learned where an authentic Christian lived

The Desultory fellow.

What’s in a kiss(1/2)


Because of extremely poor living conditions within Scotland, a desperately needed, or accidental trend began nearly 40 years ago, with the introduction of tenant self-controlled local housing associations. The living tapestry within this revolutionary housing movement, voted committees of ordinary Tennents, and each committee elected a chair, and director., mainly determined to make a difference in their homes, surroundings, and neighbourhoods.
As the growing movement of Committee members mirrored life itself…unfortunately found a couple of rogue directors’, pompous senior staff, some self-opinionated chairs, a few conceited witches as office bearers …but, completely outnumbering those naughty lemons, honest dedicated staff being supportive of everyday associates, genuinely occupied constructing neighbourhoods to be proud of… through hard work, surpassing beyond any measure ever dreamt.

Once upon a time, Shug and Old Tam, innate horses at the diplomacy game, attended quite a few network Conferences, organized by advisory establishments, such as S.F.H.A.., E.V.H..S.H.A.RE…G.W.S.Forum, conveying important legal information, Business plans, work ethics, structures, and inevitable changes in the government’s attitudes. Perhaps it’s Shug’s wavering memory to blame, but there was quite a bit of carefreeness and fun collectively between the serious business at hand.
