Resurgence of Silly Sock philosophy etc.,

Been away for a while ….. I think suffering from a slight resurgence of the ‘mediocrities’ … just go with the flow Joe, can’t be bothered, unmoved, don’t stray from the TV type of mild depression – no light on the horison. I maintained silly sock discipline but was not active in spreading the word …. (shocking but true!)
But the sun has peeped through, I must have walked through the same park as ABE did & seen the smiles & good people. Anyway spring is nearly here & I am planning to re-visit my home country & isn’t the World Cup wonderful! I pray evil does not seek an opportunity there …

Quirks & whimsy, smiles & waves, simple inoffensive silliness with a serious streak, just to maintain a bare minimum of intellectual challenge that’s the philosophy.
As the main mouthpiece of the movement, I suppose its pronouncements are tinged by my faintly conservative, religious slant…. (I hasten to add that I do not like George Bush, Robert Mugabe or Helen Clarke, I do like John Howard, Nelson Mandela & Benedict)
I predict that the All Blacks will win the Rugby World Cup …

    What a pleasant surprise to find you still in the land of splogging, I have to admit that I did wonder if you had been abducted by silly sock aliens!

    I have not been as active as I had been in the past, it was hard then but recently it’s been harder to summon up the mental energy to write, I just about managed 380 words for the Parish Magazine.

    Perhaps an email to Prime Minister Bush and President Blair, to see if they ever wear silly or odd socks, would do something to prompt politicians the world over to; ‘look on the Bright side of Life’ and instead of attacking this country or that, stop and think ….. I’ll put an odd pair of socks on.

    Cheers for now, good to see you back



  2. Micky,
    You must be the smiling gentleman I bumped into in One Tree Hill. It is amazing to revisit your homeland, it will charge you for years to come and you’ll breathe relief again. Naturally, on such a high All Blacks are bound to win the Cup, or maybe even Springboks?! That’d the day when James Small winked to me at the Victory Parade in Jo’burg in ’95.
    The hell with George Bush, and I do like Mr Mandela too.
