Thanks Night .. I hope so, but I hate being a bother.

Heres another photo I took sideways 😆... I threw some light on it from a round flashlight, and really liked the effect in the photo. My avatar is the same . A photo of one of my pictures with reflecting light from a lamp to give the illusion of a firepit. I like playing with reflective light in photos.

Ok turn your head 😆

Oh man...


This can't go on. Something is going to break. Your neighbour's nose or your brains. All i can come up with is to ask you if you have you made friends there? Or met some OK folks that you get along with? Maybe you could rent some place where everyone could have their own room and no one would play loud music or drums.

Love the birds, thank you for sharing them.

As for how I am doing, you will find that in the PM I just sent you.

Jacy is like most of us right now. She has her bad days due to the dark clouds that are blocking the sunshine and rainbows that we long for.

Good advice Fin! Or...maybe rent a room somewhere where folks are respectful. I forget Light's financial situation though. My memory sucks!


How are you this Morning? Or is it afternoon for you?

Just a little past 5 AM. I just had my ordinary 2 mugs of coffee and next some porridge. Feels like i am getting over this fatigue, it is still there but not that heavily anymore
Laundry day. Sounds a bit boring, huh?
well, boring is good for the time being!

Hi Fin. Landry days are never fun until you see the net result. As sick as I have been I have been putting off washing clothes until today as I will be without anything clean to wear if I didn't do the deed today. I managed to get three large loads of clothes and bedding clean today. Now my bed smells clean enough to make me and my cats happy. However, there are the other two loads of clothes that are waiting to be cleaned.

Guess I'll have to have a laundry party and see if anyone in the Shed will come over to help.

It seems the Shed family is under a dark cloud with so many struggling through yet another day.



One thing I hope you can all recognize is that despite your own suffering, you are here for others in their time of need. To me, that speaks volumes of my amazing Sheddite Warriors. Look at your strength. It's still there for others. No matter how many shadows haunt your every step, no matter how deep the darkness, you can find it within yourself to still care, to love, to reach out. You make a difference.

We can hold on and take one day at a time or one moment at a time if that's what we need, but we WILL hold on to hope and give it to each other as we always have and always will. YOU my friends are the rainbow in my life.

Ah Gentlemen, I hope tomorrow is my day of energy where I will get my laundry done.

Hey, I like that idea of a laundry party. Then again...I don't want anyone seeing my unmentionables so maybe not.

I wish that I could have the attitude like in this song that each day is a brand new day and what was in the past is in the past now. Afterall we are in a constant state of moving forward in time every split second of the day.

I loved listening to the big bands all the way back to when I was a kid and think they are amazing to this day.

BTW, I'm no longer taking any psych medicine which accounts for me actually being awake this late and enjoying my music.



I stand at your gate and the song that I sing is of moonlight.
I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night.
The roses are sighing a moonlight serenade.

The stars are aglow and tonight how their light sets me dreaming.
My love, do you know that your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you and sing you a moonlight serenade.

Let us stray till break of day
In love's valley of dreams.
Just you and I, a summer sky,
A heavenly breeze kissing the trees.

So don't let me wait, come to me tenderly in the June night.
I stand at your gate and I sing you a song in the moonlight,
A love song, my darling, a moonlight serenade.

Haven't heard Van Morrison in many many years. Good song!

Your other vid reminded me of my Parents.

Nice to see your still here as the laundry still waits to be done Night.

If anyone were to ask me what I am all about and what makes my brain go to where it really needs to be it would be this concert. I didn't see your parents in the audience by the way Night.

Dragons and pixies and elves? Oh my... I can imagine the call.

Neighbour: Hello, police? I NEED THE POLICE!

Police: This is the police sir, what is the problem?

Neighbour: There is a dragon outside my door and a mean looking elf-life person with pointy ears holding a bow! And a ....oWWW! And a painful pixie! HELP!

Police: Sir, calm down. Did you say a dragon is outside your door?

Neighbour: Yes! A dragon, an elf and a pixie, come quickly!

Police: Sir, how big is the dragon?

Neighbour: The dragon is huge and won't let me leave. It has fiery eyes that look right at me all scary-like! HELP!

Police: Sir, have you been drinking at all? Some drugs perhaps?

Neighbour: It's real I tell you! Come quickly!

Police: Sir, St. George is currently on vacation, can we send his backup team to you?

Neighbour: Yes, yes! Anything! HELP!!!

Police: Very well sir, we'll send St. Georges' backup team to you right away.

5 minutes later 5 burly men in white coats arrive with a gurney, a strait jacket and a large syringe full of "medication".

Just to add the conspiratorial. A technique used by security services to "neutralise" a target back in the early days was to mix DMSO (a chemical) with a large dose of some mind-bending chemical and then spread it thinly on some object that the subject was likely to touch. A door handle, a car door handle, maybe a glass. DMSO permeates the skin so any drug mixed with it would also be absorbed. Then the target could be accused of causing their own death as an autopsy would clearly reveal drugs in the system absolving anyone else of blame.

I am not suggesting doing this, just to be clear.


a reply to: WalkInSilence

No-one need here need ever worry about me. I may get quiet from time to time but still peek in occassionally. I don't always have things to add but do my best when appropriate and fitting.

The only thing I can control is myself. Other people I can do nothing about. Fortunately there is only 1 arsehole in this building. Each for his own in a city of 600,000 plus. Thankfully the people I meet and interact with on the street and in the shops are kind and friendly but I hate big cities. They have few advantages imho.

I hate violence with such a passion you would not believe. At the end of the day, I do not have responsibility for the actions of another. Action, reaction. And that is what scares me. If someone else really wants to step up to the plate and repeatedly press my button the wrong way....when is enough enough? After enough presses on my button I will react in an overdrive way, but in doing so I seal my fate. This is not a scenario I want to let play out.

As for understanding. I understand the person only too well. He's an anti-social at best, or psychopathic at worst, arsehole that thinks he is better than everyone else and can do what he likes, when he likes. I don't care, as long as I am not saddled with his behaviour. Hopefully I have broken his behaviour in this building. If not, I will be sure to report him to the rental company. I've been renting longer than most tenants so the rental company "knows me" and I believe there is some modicum of trust between us but at the end of the day, they just want peaceful and non-complaining residents who get along.

I wouldn't say I'm powerless exactly but I am reluctant to act for fear of my own future in #ty temporary housing. It's this, or the street. At 47, I ain't gonna survive on the street for long but if push comes to shove, what other choice is there? Hopefully it won't come to that though. I was homeless for 2 months before coming to the Netherlands 25 years ago. Since that time I've managed to not do that.

And now a question for you. Please, do not be offended! What the hell is that scary creature in your new avatar? It does not look friendly. It looks like the stuff of nightmares. (Don't change it! That is not what my question is about.) A pike, a carp, a huge eel? Or something worse? Enquiring minds want to know, and possibly avoid that beast in real life.


a reply to: Finspiracy

In this city of 600,000 plus I know not a single soul. I spend every day alone. There are worse things than being alone though.
I am limited to this temporary housing. Getting a "proper" flat/appartment takes years due to waiting lists. I am not on the list because I did not apply for it yet. I'll get there eventually but until then, it is what it is.

And now to happier things.

What? No one has been here since I left 11 hours ago.
Oh wait, I don't have a life, nevermind.

Edit as I see that our LightDriver has made an appearance. Nice to see you here today.

Our Jacy is having a down day today as it's the family day where she is staying so the women and children are enjoying the visitors. However, Jacy has no family visiting her. Pop an email to her today to remind her of her Shed family.

I saw that movie, it's excellent and I do like Will Smith (it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact my last name is Smith!)


Shout out to Jacy with dragon hugs (they can be gentle if they like you). It is what it is but hopefully is will be better eventually. That's what I wish for her.

I've enjoyed all of the Will Smith movies that I have seen and yes I was a Fresh Prince watcher as well.

Thank you for your shout out to Jacy. I'll pass that along to her today.
