I'm a rambler, I'm a rambler from South Manchester way.


past midnight in a wood in the dark by the pass not a sound but the cars and the shift of the leaves at my feet and I walk is the dark and I piss in the dark and I stand in the rise of the steam.

Thanks Neil. beech ave is about our first house where a passage ran from the cellar to the middle of the road where the coal was once delivered. 39mil' is the No of plays for the excellent 'hurt' by on utube, I wrote it while listening.

Hello Neil..thankyou're right..I think the 'cycle' should be birth-reproduction-death-decay .. 'time' is a man-made idea for alarm clocks so you don't miss the bus for work.

Thank you for paying me a visit Neil. Yes - that poem is a fixed favourite even beyond my own family now and I wonder if I'll ever be able to write anything as funny.

I don't think we've ever met - try to make it to the Christmas Tudor on 8th - it should be one worth coming to. x

Hello Neil. I'm really, really glad if I've helped. That's what we should all try and do, other pairs of eyes and all that. Mind you, I'm sometimes just talking crap, so beware.

Morning Neil

Thanks for your note. I'm getting there, but it's all been very 'on top' for a few weeks, one fucking horrible thing after another, and it all kinda battered my head into submission. But - my chi is rising with each day :) I just saw very familiar thought patterns in your poem :)

Next Tudor?

Glad you liked Doing it Twice, Neil. I blogged it some time time ago where I explained that the joke is actually told by an excellent after-dinner speaker called Steve Womack.

Hehe - yup, you're learning alright ;)

My other favourite venue is the Butterflies bar in Bolton. Jeff Dawson, aka Jefferama, runs two brilliant nights there - a WOL night, and another called Guitar N Verse. Well worth getting along to either or both if you can. I don't make it along there as often as I'd like cos I live in St Helens and I'm really bloody idle ;) It's a similar sort of 'vibe' though, and Jeff is a top compere!

Aha - so this is where you replied!

Top tip of the day - if you reply on a profile, make it on the profile of the person you are replying to otherwise we won't get an email notification of your reply :)

The Tudor is one of my two favourite venues actually - love the atmosphere in there!

Howdy Neil - why thank ya! Good night all round last night wasn't it? I've not seen you before in the Tudor - have you only just joined WOL?

I loved your 'Simon Armitage Lives in Stockport' poem - cracked me up :D

Hope to see you there again next month!
