The Endless Note

Return to Ballater Part Five

Home now at the end of a long tiring and emotional day, after 330 miles 14 hours visiting several places we loved and saving one of our dogs from choking to death on a bit of stick there is only time for some flowers, candles and a couple of stiff brandy’s.

Goodnight and be lucky.

Sure I know you’d like to have me
Talk about my future
And a million words or so to fill you in about my past
Have I sisters or a brother
When’s my birthday how’s my mother
Well my dear in time I’ll answer all those things you ask

But for now I’ll just say I love you
Nothing more seems important somehow
And tomorrow can wait come whatever
Let me love you forever but right now
Right now

Some fine day when we go walking
We’ll take time for idle talking
Sharing every feeling as we watch each other smile
I’ll hold your hand you’ll hold my hand
We’ll say things we never had planned
Then we’ll get to know each other in a little while

But for now let me say I love you
Later on there’ll be time for so much more
But for now meaning now and forever
Let me kiss you my darling then once more
Once more

But for now let me say I love you
Later on I must know much more of you
But for now here and now how I love you
As you are in my arms I love you
I love you
I love you

Return to Ballater Part Four

Our week in Ballater would never be complete without one or two visits to the local Italian Restaurant

So it is here I finish my day with a fine steak with side salad

Catch you all when I get back to Houston

Happy Birthday Fi

Return to Ballater Part Three

Well with The Falls of Feugh closed it was back to Craigendarroch Hotel itself, normally regarded as a last resort for us in the past, fortunately even they couldn’t get a hot chocolate and scone wrong.

Return to Ballater Part Two

Many an afternoon coffee and bun has been had at the superb Tea Room adjacent to the Falls of Feugh near Banchory

Unfortunately not today as the premises are “closed on 25th March apologies for any inconvenience”

Here as evidence is a empty car park bar one Dancer Mobile

Return to Ballater Part One

Fiona and I loved the time we spent at the timeshare in Ballater.

It was here we spent the last week before Fiona was so cruelly diagnosed, although she wasn’t feeling well that week none of us suspected what was to come.

I knew I had to get away today with the dogs but decided I would leave it to fate to determine if I would make the trip north…….only if the sun was shining would I do so and this morning the sun was shining on Houston and what a magnificent journey it was.

We always started the day with the best brekkie in town at the old Railway Station so as I type I await some scrambled egg and bacon on toast.

The Who – The Seeker

dscf1567

Today at 12.20pm Fiona would have turned 50.

Happy Birthday my love wherever you are.

It’s not so long ago that I could not imagine living without her, now I can’t imagine living wthout missing her.

We both loved music and a good percentage of our musical likes were complimentary, fortunately for me Fiona developed a deep rooted love for the music of The Who, my favourite artist of all time, this is her favourite Who song.

“The Seeker”

I’ve looked under chairs
I’ve looked under tables
I’ve tried to find the key
To fifty million fables

chorus:
They call me The Seeker
I’ve been searching low and high
I won’t get to get what I’m after
Till the day I die

I asked Bobby Dylan
I asked The Beatles
I asked Timothy Leary
But he couldn’t help me either

chorus

People tend to hate me
‘Cause I never smile
As I ransack their homes
They want to shake my hand

Focusing on nowhere
Investigating miles
I’m a seeker
I’m a really desperate man

I won’t get to get what I’m after
Till the day I die

I learned how to raise my voice in anger
Yeah, but look at my face, ain’t this a smile?
I’m happy when life’s good
And when it’s bad I cry
I’ve got values but I don’t know how or why

I’m looking for me
You’re looking for you
We’re looking in at each other
And we don’t know what to do

chorus
