I’ve no idea! I must have been about 9 or 10 when I first read The Fink so all I can assume is that I thought it was some kind of futurespeak that meant nothing. I do love a good 2am moment of sudden realisation.

Next up, I’ll be revealing that Monty Python and Pink Floyd weren’t actually real people, and that the world wasn’t actually black and white until someone invented colour in the late sixties.....

Thanks guys. But I should clarify that it's not really 'my' loss in any real sense, he and his wife were friends from long ago, and we only occasionally saw each other in recent years, although now of course I wish it had been otherwise.  But yesterday, seeing the impact on his wife, his mother, other closer friends, his family and even the wider community.... jesus.  I've been to too many of these types of funeral, but this one got to me more than most, in part I think because this was a man I always - envied isn't the right word - admired maybe, with a dollop of self-reproach?  He had achieved a kind of life I once aspired to, and subsequently idly idealised, but knew I couldn't emulate.  And yet it ended in the most terrible emotional pain, and now, nothing.

Still, and selfishly, waking up this morning beside my warm but grumpy wife, dealing with my shitty elderly cats, inhaling the scent of my kids' hair even as I berated them about lunchboxes left in schoolbags since Friday, I had a new appreciation for being alive, and a determination to be better. Me, me, me.

I think we all have to agree, that certainly is a powerful image.

I’m largely enjoying the prog at the moment, but I do find it difficult to remember what happened the weeks before, so I enter the current strip a bit lost.

That’s probably the fault of my memory, but I don’t suffer this every week from every strip. So is it the style of story telling as aimed at a collected edition? I’m sure much of the stories are fine if read in one go.

I do think I need to work at training my memory, however.

I have literally just THIS SECOND realised that when Fink Angel refers to his “pizen” it’s his Cursed Earth Drawl way of saying “poison” 🤯

What on earth did you think he meant?!

Im kinda afraid to comment it here,but here it goes...Michael Collins.A good biopic.Neeson delivers a great performance,but Rickman steals the show whenever he shows up.And you have to give the movie credit for not even pretending to be objective.

Do me a favour squaxx, if you're having problems with your thinking and feeling organ,  go see someone,  and don't take 'no' or 'take a number' for an answer.

2nd from me here.  Long time since the Black Dog Thread has seen any traffic and hopefully that is an indicator of how fellow boarders are coping.  Personally on that score I've always found this place the most compassionate and supportive place going when 'having a wobble'.  I know there are some crap GP's out there but persist and insist on seeing another one if you aren't happy. 

I've got several kids I teach who lost their father in the last few months to this.  Having a cousin who took advantage of his service weapon in Iraq and the damage it has done to his wife and kids ...  It may 'feel' like no one gives a shit but that is not true.

Keeping you in thoughts Tordels.
